Help me look hot, just once I want to look great and not like a chunky monkey!
Hello, I am often in awe of you lovely ladies and your suggestions to people. I have just been invited to a big do next Friday and I need to look good and would ideally like to look hot. Please help!!! Problem is I just had my 2nd baby and I am a chunky monkey size 16/18 with size 36gg boobies. I have a hourglass shape and prefer dresses. Any suggestions would be great. Online shops welcomed. Thank you so so much.
How about lady vintage London? They have gorgeous dresses. Beware, though, that the sizing is quite vintage IMHO. Fitted fine on waist, but had a good 4 inches gap at upper back due to boobs. I'm usually a 16, and have a 32gg chest, and I've returned for a 20, so fingers crossed it fits! They do have dresses in even larger sizes to accommodate your boobs, too.
some absolutely beautiful dresses here, I have 2 and both are very flattering, i am a size 14 with 34ff boobs! I have the day dress and the hawaiian wedding dress and both are amazing. They are cotton so the fit is lovely, not too clingly (and machine washable!)
