I'm looking for a strapless 'prom style' dress to wear for a wedding...
Tried on a gorgeous black one in Reiss today but had annoying pleats at the back which made rear end look huge

Am a curvy 14

skirt and top

next dress

Wallis, topshop and dorothy perkins have some too but most of theirs have straps. Oh and of course Monsson.

I didn't see the turquoise one-- which paper was it in?

Found the reiss dress-- absolutely lovely but bit nervous about whether the shift style would suit me... don't you need long thin legs for them?
