Please help me. I am fat and carry most of my weight around my middle (hips & tum). I desperately need a black velvet dress. Anyone seen any around that aren't super-clingy? Thank u vipers.

I saw this one in LK Bennett. Pricey though. Quite thick material so don't think it would cling.

Thank you SorrelForbes smile. The bad news is that the dress linked is out of my budget. Gorgeous though- a great find. The good news is I found a dress! M&S, cheap and cheerful, and flattering around the tummy. here. Not the most amazing fit ever but it looks respectable and disguises lumps and bumps- Im happy and relieved!
