I have big norks and I adore wrap dresses

alicemama Thu 01-Jun-06 09:41:30

no wrap dresses look awful on me, not that I'm sure what looks good either at the moment!

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 09:42:18

do you not like the next dress? would be very flattering I think..

alicemama Thu 01-Jun-06 09:43:50

Have one very similar to that and fabric is a bit too floaty for me but thanks for looking

Maybe you need the right sort of big norks for wrap dresses. And at least a suggestion of a waist.

What sort of do is it - dinner? formal? informal?

Monsoon are good for womanly types.

it's informal but I like wearing dresses or skirts when I go out..I love monsoon but a bit pricey for me at the moment

just put a watch on the first dress...thankyou!

wouldn't dare where strapless and pleats just make my belly look even bigger..

but may have a wimmer with the first one!
