Raised / dropped waist dresses ?

Anyone spotted any lovely dresses with raised / dropped waists this summer?

Not sure what my body shape is but I look like a sack of spuds in anything flarey or with a very-defined waistband... (i.e. the stuff the shops are full of).

I usually like stuff from gap / esprit and in my head would like to be more edgy than frumpy (currently failing miserably)... but having no luck finding anything this year.

Hmm, well I may go try this on (I like the colour) ....

White Stuff - red dress

Anyone else?

That's nice. In the style of Gap - Uniqlo have some nice dropped waist casual dresses in a soft stretchy T shirt fabric for only £15.

I've just discovered People Tree. Worth a look?

One of the Amazing MN Dress Finders will be along shortly, I'm sure.

(puts out call for Pants)

Ah thanks. The uniqlo ones I saw were maybe a bit short for my bare legs though...

After more searching lay night I've ordered this one from boden - the brown one with the birds - what do you think?
