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: www.matalan.co.uk/womens/brands/d-by-damsel-in-a-dress-dresses/s2580383/d-by-damsel--ity-dress

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 www.divacatwalk.com/shop/view-all.html (as has Carol Vorderman!)

Why are the priciest ones always the nicest?

Some Hybrid dresses look good and are on BrandAlley today - www.brandalley.co.uk/private-sales/hybrid.html/?utm_campaign=131114+Michael+Kors&utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_source=emailCampaign

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 £££.

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Thu 13-Nov-14 10:13:31

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?

Ellasmum100 Mon 29-Dec-14 15:57:55

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 www.saintbustier.com/nigella-dress-fern-green.html
