can't really help on the dress front, but I am the same size as you but taller. I recently wore a monsoon dress to a ball but bought some magic pants from M & S to wear under it. They were quite expensive (ok very expensive) but made my 'mummy tummy' (love that Nomdeplume!) disappear!
Can't find the pants on the website but know they are still in the Fosse park, Leicester M & S.
They go from mid thigh to just under your bust and kept everything where it used to be, were very comfy but I did take them off just before we left and stahed them in my bag as dp would have laughed like a drain if he'd seen them!
NDP - very nice and love the colour - right up my street (who cares about Nutty? ), but what colour accessories? - this always puts me off anything but black in a dress - I have no idea how to complement colours, so I stick with black so I can have black bag and shoes.
I love that dress NDP, and the colour, am a bit green obssessed at the mo. Only thing I am unsure about is the style at the top as that shape sometimes makes me look a bit chunky. I'll have to go try it on.
ive just bought a dress for a wedding(well we've got SIX this yr!!!). from an ebay shop called my fairygodmother. she only sells karen millen stuff but alot cheaper than the shop. mine arrived, brand new with tags. im a size 10/12 and this dress is a 12 and fits like a glove. there are some other really lovely ones if you want to splash out a bit.
