Not sure about the print...it's nice but a bit high fashion so you'd prob not get much wear out of the dress in the future?
I've posted this on here before but I've just bought this dress from Next for a wedding. It's a very similar A line shape to the one you posted, although doesn't look it in the pic. It's very flattering on, comes to just below the knees (I'm 5.5) and more importantly skims over my tum!
I see you've found your dress now (it's lovely, I've seen it in RL, sadly after I'd bought mine!!) but yes, the Next one is def for the 'wide of hip' - I'm one myself
It's really deceiving. I'd seen it online but ignored it despite loving the print as I thought it looked too pencil skirtish. It really isn't though, it's gorgeous on, 50s style. I'm going to wear it with black Mary Jane shoes with a little heel, a black cardi or cream sequin shrug, not sure yet, and red bag, nails, jewellery and hair
