Dd has decided she would like a prom dress that is long, dark blue/ navy and has a defined waist or a top half of separate material/design confused I'm struggling to find anything so please help!

I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but there are lots of lovely dresses at Quiz.

escapde Thu 08-Jan-15 18:32:44

Definitely full length, sleeves don't matter at all and budget is a maximum of £150
I will take a look at quiz now smile

Try looking at ebay - there are loads of different designs available.

Maybe not enough of a defined waist
Too light?

Waist detail & bargain
Bit clingy?
Might be too bright a blue

MyrnaLoy Thu 08-Jan-15 20:01:42

Total bargain and has contrast Potentially long delivery time though - does that matter?

Love the Mango one.

This is a bargain. I've had 4 or five dresses from here, I usually had to size up becuase I had large boobs, but I've lost with now so they are more true to size. I would think an 8 would be fine for her, if she's between sizes, they are good if you need to return and are at the end of the phone, in this country, which helps.

One shoulder.
