Come and tell me what to wear...

I have the chance to do some "work experience" as a guest lecturer at a local university. I have always wanted to get into this line of work and if it goes well it could open a lot of doors for me.

But what do I wear?! I had DD 17 weeks ago and although I am back to a size 8-10, I can't get my huuuuge boobs into the smart shift dresses I used to wear to work.

I am lecturing about professional practice so I think I need to look smart, I prefer skirts to trousers but other than that open to suggestions!

jersey dress would be smart but comfortable.

Good thought! I don't want to look too "stiff" if you know what I mean!

I did a postgraduate professional qualification last year and was surprised at how casual all the lecturers were (mine usually wore shirt and trousers or smart jeans) so you may find "professional" dress too smart. Jersey or seperates may be a good compromise.

Ooh separates it is then- I don't want to be the only one in professional dress!
