The theme is night at the oscars dress to impress. I don't do showy iffy so don't what anything too formal but something a bit fancier than day to day.
Plus size 24-26 preferably with sleeves and not too mini short as I'm tall. I'm fairly skint so no more than £45ish.

I'm sure the experts will be along and request your shape and preferences but, in the meantime....

plain black but can be accessorized to within an inch of its life to make it glam.

Are you confident enough to go bodycon? bodycon


another floral

Have you seen the dresses at Monroe knows? Some lovely dresses there, sizes 18-26.

Have seen this brand on a few blogs recently. Tempted as dresses look a good length

Joe Browns Beautiful Basil Dress

Sizes: 14 - 32. Team with thick black tights and boots or heels. It is a bit short though.

Thanks! The Monroe ones look lovely although maybe a bit casual. I want them for work wear!

'Deadly is the female' is a great shop, I've found the sizes quite generous, the Monica dress is stunning on!

I happened upon this dress online today and was gutted to find they didn't make it in non plus size sizes.

It's stunning.

I agree with Asos curve for plus size. Very true to size and quality products.
I just got my Christmas dress from there smile
