I would like a maxi dress for my upcoming holidays but as always, i have something in mind that i just cant find. I would like a jersey type maxi, not too full, and flattering on tummy if poss, not too strappy and most importantly navy or green, no pattern. I keep seeing lovely ones in black, but want something for day time that i can accessorise for evening. Anybody seen anything reasonably priced - ie not Boden, im more high street smile thanks

I've seen plain green and navy maxis in Primark though I don't know if they will be the shape you are looking for as they are quite straight up and down.

Gap have navy plain ones.

Thanks for both suggestions, going to a Gap tommorow so will have a look there. I have seen a few in Primark that i may try on just to see, but they did look a bit unforgiving for my post twin tummy! Was wondering if anybody had tried anything on that was particularly flattering?

I bought one from Oasis at the weekend. I got it in black but they did have blue and green too, as well as an awesome coral colour I'm not brave enough for. It was £28 and v flattering with a skinny belt.

Fat face makita maxi dress the navy and stripe one, not the floral one. Its lovely and flattering on! I bought it and its the nicest fitting maxi I've tried. Soft jersey that skims in the right places.

I have this but it might be a bit too blue. Comes in green too.

I have the DP one (at least I assume it's the one linked above, that link isn't working for me) and it's lovely. Quite clingy, so size up if that's not for you.

thanks! I tried a Gap one on, not sure if it was the same one Annianni, but it was right on me and made tops of arms look fat. BUT i loved the DP one, tried on and really nice, but i will have to size up as i need the petite length so will need the 16 not my normal 14. Its perfect, not too strappy and very versatile. And cheap! Hoorah!!
