I am similar shape to Nigella so I'm very interested in what she wears. I own one Katya Wilding bombshell dress. I got it off ebay (bargain). It's the business! ...but I cannot afford to buy any more. :-(

Does anyone know where I can find similar but cheaper dresses to Katya Wilding and Saint Bustier? ie with the 'boob space', sucked in waist and ruching to cover tummy bits...

Lindybop is worth a look as they cut for hourglass figures and have wiggle dresses as well as full skirted numbers. Some are really cheap in the sale too.

I would say Phase Eight does very Nigella flattering dresses,

Big fan of Baukjen they have some great wrap dresses in both Jersey and more structured materials.

Diva in a dress are supposed to be great, definitely along the right lines style wise.

It sounds like I'm the same shape as you and I just got a lovely cheap wrap dress from the D by Damsel in a Dress diffusion range at Matalan. Really flattering shape and nice thick material. This is the one I got:

Have just bought TWO dresses from Phase Eight sale for £57!

DorothyBastard - nice! Would have bought if not seen the Phase Eight ones... Nice colour but will have to wait until payday now. Fingers crossed still in stock.

Right, that's a blue and a purple one sorted. What I'd really like is a dark/deep RED one. Not a postbox red - not right on my skin tone. Blue toned red IYSWIM.

I have a friend of a friend of a friend who says she actually buys them here:

I'm pretty sure she's worn a couple from here (as has Carol Vorderman!)

Why are the priciest ones always the nicest?

Some Hybrid dresses look good and are on BrandAlley today -

I have the billion dollar baby dress from Deadly is the Female which Nigella has worn. It is the blue-toned red you're after Oink but is also £££.

Can anyone comment on the quality of Lindybop? The designs look great but at those prices are they a bit cheap-looking?

I've had a couple of the Pretty Dress Company ones and they are, ahem, very structured - they look great but they're made with stretchy stuff that is so powerful it's probably slightly more restrictive than wearing a whalebone corset.

Lindy bop dresses look lovely, anyone with advice on quality and fit?

The Billion Dollar Baby dress is also called the Nigella Dress in some places - it's in lots of different colours. The lovely fern green one is on sale at the moment at Saint Bustier
