What would you wear if you were 25.... Mother of 3. ( younger is 9 weeks) if you were. three stone heavier than you want to be slightly over weight size 16,

Bump. Or am I destined to wear pjs?

chiffon overlay
lace
red
bird print
Got to go now i'll look again later - you need something with structure to show off your hourglass figure - no draping, shifts or baggy stuff OK?!

OnlyWantsOne Sun 28-Oct-12 18:45:48

Oh god I feel fat. Tell me how to dress my body?

I hate my arms - actually I hate everything from shoulders down to my ankles.

Plus what foot wear do I wear all day in London with 3 smalls

OnlyWantsOne Sun 28-Oct-12 18:52:07

What about this here

FauxFox Sun 28-Oct-12 18:58:18

That's lovely only

OnlyWantsOne Sun 28-Oct-12 19:05:00

Right I'm buying it now. What to wear it with??

FauxFox Sun 28-Oct-12 19:37:25

these shoes are cute in leopard or black and low heels so not painful/difficult to manage with the children? I'd probably go for black opaques with it too. You probably need a coat or jacket? You could go for a colour like purple or fur? I'd go for a jewelled hair clip or hair band rather than a fascinator or hat to avoid faff after the car journey...and make sure you've got a large, decent bag that goes with your outfit so you can carry all the kids detritus easily. Don't be so down on yourself, try and have fun! Have a sparkly gel manicure beforehand or a blow dry on the day if you can fit it in? And maybe get some new make-up or a makeover on one of the counters in Boots? x

Im having a wobble sad

FauxFox Sun 28-Oct-12 22:08:31

Oh only you poor sausage, don't worry! I really truly think you should get this it comes in lots of colours and has a good structure that will give you a great shape. I've got one from that site, different design but they are all similar and it's cut really well. Choose a colour you like and order it up - might be £ than you wanted but it will last forever and I promise you will feel $million xx

OnlyWantsOne Sun 28-Oct-12 22:14:11

oh dear god NO!!

I bought one from them last time I was fat after dd2... (had dd3 9 weeks ago)

It made me look like a fat sausage squeezed into a nasty dress

OnlyWantsOne Sun 28-Oct-12 22:16:26

I've bought the JL dress this one

I need some thing to wear over it

I literally have no clothes at the moment as reluctant to spend £ on stuff, when I want to loose 3 stone first

FauxFox Sun 28-Oct-12 22:57:37

I think you need to go and try stuff on (without children!) until you find something you like. Good luck - I hope you enjoy the wedding.
