Sorry, another one of 'those' threads but I'm hoping you can help!

I'm going to a wedding in a few weeks and will be 9 weeks post c-section, so have the flabby, over-hanging belly and bigger-than-usual boobs along with low body-confidence. I really need help with finding something to wear!

I'm 5'4, was a size 10 but now a 12 (so can't raid my pre-preg wardrobe), reasonably curvy, good legs. I don't really like my arms but can of short sleeves if a dress will hide the belly!

The wedding is registry office, with a full-on dinner at a lovely, posh restaurant after. As I'm on mat leave I don't want to spend a fortune, perhaps up to £75/100.

Please can you help me out of a miserable style rut?!

Have a look at Lady vintage,deadly is the female or The pretty dress company. They have lovely dresses for under £100.

Nomads do some very well-made dresses for curvy shapes and fair trade too.
A long sleeved stretchy shrug will keep your arms warm without hiding your waist.
