I give up! Please help me find a summer dress that doesn't skim my bum but isn't frumpy either

I was pregnant last summer and didn't buy many clothes the summer before so this year my summer wardrobe is looking a tad sad.

I would really like a couple of nice summer dresses that can be worn with flat sandals or maybe wedges and can be dressed up or down. Can I bloody find any? NO. It's driving me mad. Any I do like are sold out in my size. This is probably because it's damn near impossible to find any that don't skim your arse or the other end of the scale make you look like a frump. There's nothing much in between.

I'm a size 12/14, about 5ft 4" and in my early thirties. I want something just above the knee and not too strappy. I just don't do legs out, mine are stumpy and a bit generous in the thigh area.

So does anyone have any recommendations?
