I want to find a blue, smart, midi length dress, ideally with sleeves (any length) that will flatter a tall figure. Has anyone seen one anywhere? I would like to try it on in person, so ideally not online only retailer. Budgetwise, reasonable, but not Designer.

Any thoughts?

White Stuff had dark blue one that looked good yesterday

What size are you?

What sort of blue do you want?

Solasum Fri 05-Dec-14 14:17:04

8/10. Any blue really. Preference for peacock

Bugger - just realized you said you wanted to try on.... sorry.
I do like the second one though.

I like the second Asos one. You should be able to get next day delivery to try it.

Wow, thank you all!

I really like the Gorgeous couture dress, but as I am a bit taller than the model, it would be verging on too short. Or perhaps I am being over conservative?

Also really like the J by JC one. I am not sure I have ever been into a Dbenhams

I just tried on lots of dresses, including several in Ted Baker, which were a lovely blue, but inclined to be very body con, which I think is probably not ideal for work event.

Solasum Fri 05-Dec-14 17:07:46 I think this is elegant too.
