I have a do that I'm going to next weekend. It's afternoon/evening and it's not black tie but needs to be fairly dressy. I've just realised I need to find something asap.
The problem is that I'm 14/16 and my lardy stomach won't cope with anything bodycon or too fitted. I'm 5'10" and my legs are ok, would also prefer nothing strapless as I'm about a 40DD on top. I love 50s/60s style but they need to be fairly forgiving around the waistline. It can be maxi or knee length but not mini.
No dress advice but Zombie if you are a 14/16 I'm willing to bet you are not a 40DD and it would be well worth checking out the bra intervention threads as you are more likely a 34G <<plucks figure out of the air>>
Ooh, faux I like that blue floral and I don't generally go for florals. And bua that coral is lovely and again, not something I would have thought of originally.
gary You think so? I was measured at Rigby & Peller about 2 years ago and came out at a 38DD. Had to buy some new bras recently but couldn;t afford R&P at the time and didn't trust M&S to measure me properly so I just tried on a load until some fitted (yes, I know) and those were 40DD. The 38s were really too tight and cut in. I'll go back to R&P as soon as I get a chance.
This is really helpful! Any other suggestions anyone?
