Fat and clueless and in need of a party frock.

I'm planning ahead for a Christmas Doo.

I don't do dresses or fancy. I like jeans and leggings and tunics and jumpers. I have no idea about shoes!

I've lost a chunk of weight and about a size 16 but v conscious about my fat bits (gut, arms, legs, bum etc).

I want to look fabulous but still able to boogy until 4am.

m&co usually do nice, arm covering, flattering dresses this time of yr. I have a few from there. I wouldn't normally shop there but party frogs for the curvy amongst us they do pretty well. 15% off with Code: dearsanta too

How old and how tall are you?

25% off with free delivery actually. I have last year's version of this (and the previous year's grin )

Something like THIS could be flattering
With a nice pair of silver shoes
ASOS have loads of lovely dresses and shoes.
Have a look on there.
A site that I like for flattering dresses is Roman Originals
They take the fuller figure into account.

Oooh ideas. Thanks.

I'm 40 (urgh) and 5ft 7. Normally do the crumpled windswept hippy look.

Have a look at the Mary portals dresses at HoF
My lovely friend wears her dresses all the time and they are very very flattering on
They often are cut to hide stomachs arms etc..some even have a secret power mesh
She is a big 14 iykwim but she looks unbelievable

I have just received this in a size 16 - ignore the hideous shoes worn by the model. It's slightly lighter than in the picture, more of a steely blue, super flattering with the ruching and amazingly comfortable with lots of stretch but not clingy iyswim. I'm wearing it to a winter evening wedding but imagine it will see me through Christmas parties too.
