Not much of a fashionista but I could do with some advice from you experts please. I have a small family wedding to go to in October but would like to sort my outfit asap. I'm 5'4" , about 200lb and a top heavy apple! Currently comfortable in size 20 tops and size 14 bottom which makes dresses look strangely baggy round my bottom half. I carry lots of weight under my boobs to my waist so fitted tops aren't good. Legs not bad, decent cleavage in a good bra! Any ideas gratefully received
Thank you - never heard of Pepperberry so will take a look.
This one? Pink Dress Would definitely need to try it on - not a colour I would normally pick but I've got blondish hair / pale skin so it could suit. I'll take a trip to "the city" at the weekend and see what it's like.
OP here: Thanks for your ideas. I did buy a pencil skirt and a lovely cream top but wasn't sure it was smart enough. So I kept that outfit for Christmas and bought this too monsoon dress Lovely dress for covering lumpiness but with some shape. I'm an 18/20 normally and I bought the 20 so I didn't have to worry about breathing in! Thanks for the original help and I hope my finds help someone else
