Hi, I am a size 18, apple shape, 5'5 (short legs though) and I need help with interview clothes. Not a suit as its not that kind of work place, but still smart and slimming. I struggle to wear heels as I have balance problems although I do like dresses.

Any recommendations? I'd rather not spend more than £100 on full outfit (inc accessories/shoes)

I find Dorothy perkins have a lot of smart looking dresses. I have a plain navy one that I used to wear for interviews, with a blazer on top, tights and brogues.
Something like this possibly with a blazer and flats?

That's a nice dress but I don't see it working for my shape unfortunately. I have quite a big bum and tum.

I always wore long spanx underneath to hold everything in.

this may be better? It sort of skims over everything.

Tesco's Fred & Florence do work wear, can be good if you pick classic outfits (usually 25 pounds an outfit including postage.)

I got this in Ivory for a work thing...

It went well with black or navy trousers and blazer.
It is quite see through though so I wore a camisole underneath.
