Very posh wedding coming up in 2 months. I'm 5'2, size 20-22, huge bosoms and footballers' legs. I also have upper arms like a side of pork.

So, it can't be sleeveless and it can't be shorter than ankle length. Oh, and I'm poor grin

lol at porky arms


freddiemisagreatshag Sat 13-Apr-13 19:45:55

Right. Enough of this short fat minger.

i don't do style and beauty but nor do I do disparaging yourself

So no more short fat minger.

Said with love from a short fat minger

So you want arms and legs covered DEFFO?

how posh is it? no trousers?

coreny Sat 13-Apr-13 19:46:02

could you do knee length with really good tights?

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:46:07

and what exactly IS the budget

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:47:26

classic wrap

coreny Sat 13-Apr-13 19:47:49

I luffs this

model is probably about 6ft so should be below knee on 5'2''?

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:47:58

too revealing?

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 13-Apr-13 19:50:25

I can do sleeveless with a shrug or summat. Definitely legs covered. You know those old ladies you see sometimes with huge legs because of mega water retention. Mine are worse grin

I think I could do trousers. Budget is whatever it needs to be I guess but keep it sensible!

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:50:26

plain but chic imo = sold out in a 22 but keep an eye on it

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:50:44

trouser might be nice then with cool shoes

what style suits?

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:51:06

gah dont do shrug crap - just get a dress with sleeves

what do you think so far?

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 13-Apr-13 19:51:42

The first one is spot on my colour. I love purple matches my complexion grin

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 13-Apr-13 19:53:12

Lovely so far but I'm thinking a bit short. I cannot stress the horridness of my legs

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:53:29

come on you can wear this,size:

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:53:48

NOW and post it

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:54:29

LOVE but too much for a wedding

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 13-Apr-13 19:56:02

I can't take a photo, I don't know how to work the panorama setting on my camera grin

Seriously, there is no way in hell my legs can go on show. They haven't seen daylight since 1978.

Simply Be have got some lovely wedding dresses that would be great. However, I'm not the bride thank Christ and I don't think the real bride would care to be upstaged by me wink

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:57:46

LadyMountbatten Sat 13-Apr-13 19:58:57

right no sleeves but good for legs
