Black tie dinner

Help a lady out. I have a tres fancy black tie dinner next month and need want because I haven't been to a posh do in ages a new frock. It's a definite ballgown rather than cocktail dress event.

I want something a bit stunning, floor length, fabulous. I have loads of shoes and accessories which never get an airing so focus is The Dress

I have a budget of up to £200. Might find a bit more if its really amazing. Had a look in coast but its all so samey.

I'm mid-30s, a size 14, average height. Hourglass shape so ok waist but have mahoosive boobs (34G) so strapless is not much of a goer. Have a lovely mum tum but an impressive array of clever pants that sort the worst of it out.

So wise ones, what shall I do?
