I am a size 14-16 pear, biggish boobs (due to bf) and a quite a bit of post-baby tummy hmm.

I'd like to find an elegant dress and maybe a dress coat à la ms middleton blush. I am not used to this voluptuous figure and haven't got a clue how to dress up nicely but not ott.

I would be most grateful for some suggestions. Dress needs to be under £100.00. Shoes should also be < £ 100.00

Oh, and I don't do high heels (chin splint).

If you're still feeding, wouldn't a top and skirt be easier?

Only feeding twice a day now so no particular need to have 'easy access' grin.

With my new 'postnatal' figure I often end up looking frumpy, however I see other women with fuller bodies who look very well put together so it's just that I don't know how to dress for my new and hopefully temporary shape.

Skirts are tricky for me as they never seem to fit properly.

I have mentioned on several threads before about the benefits of using a personal shopper. I think when you are at a loss re what suits you or not, it is helpful to have the opinion of a stranger. Fresh eyes, new perspective & ideas sometimes helps us see ourselves differently hopefully! Happy shopping!

Thank you Diamonds, I'll look at this option. X
