Anyone fancy helping me find a dress for a posh black tie dinner?

I need a new dress for a black tie dinner. Budget £200 (but less will do!).

I'm thinking full length will be required, which I always find a challenge at 5' 5" and a 29" leg.

I'm a size 14, with a few lumps and bumps that need tone disguised. Very generous of hip, thigh and norks. I'm not fond of my arms so nothing strappy but I can live with a cap sleeve etc.

I have some fabulous purply blue shoes that are high AND comfortable so if it went with those I'd be happy, but haven't ruled out buying a new pair.

All suggestions welcome!

Tk maxx is worth a look, can't guarantee anything but I found a beautiful floor length purple dress with a bit of a train for New Year's Eve.

Thanks for the reply. I'm a bit stuck for time so online ordering would suit, but we do have a tk maxx nearby so will try and pop in.

Second TKMaxx, I bought three in store and two online recently when I needed a long dress. I then took four of them back with no problem.
All were £34.99, various styles but all long, in a heavy drapey nylon type material that smooths over all lumps and bumps (I hope!) I have had the eventual one taken up by a tailor but at £35 I don't mind paying for that.

Thanks everyone. Just heading to bed but will have a proper look at these in the morning.
