Please can you lovely ladies help me find dresses to suit an apple with flabby arms? Also vertically challenged.....

If I can find 5 casual ones then I will never have to wear jeans that won't stay up due to lack of bum/hippage ever again!

Have you tried skater / fit and flare style dresses with 3/4 sleeve perhaps?

Love your question as I have the same problem!

Sparkly, the ones I've tried are Quite fitted at the waist which accentuates my spare tyre sad. Am I trying on the wrong sort?

I think it depends how high the waist is. The ones that tend to suit me have quite a high waist - almost (but not quite) an empire style.
