I have an interview in a fortnight for a really exciting job opportunity and I'd love to look fabulous! I'm a bit hopeless with clothes.

I'm 5'10 and normally a size 10, however I had twins 6 months ago and am bf. Have huge boobs and a wobbly tum so my normal clothes look awful. I'm very pale skinned with dark hair and have fairly decent legs!! Probably budget of around £100. Any suggestions welcome?

For lack of anyone else....maybe an on the knee black skirt, not too short, not too tight, Next or somewhere like that? Actually, Matalan were praised a while ago for their office basics, which all had lycra in them, so they keep their shape. Shirt/blouse would depend on the culture of the working environment. I would opt for plain if more conservative, you can be a little more 'out there' if it's a more creative/media/you-get-the-idea job. And a nicely cut jacket?

A darker shirt would diminish the size of the norkage, if that's the look you were going for, maybe.

dresses have more ability to disguise figure imperfections IMO. maybe a dress with/out a jacket. Jaeger has good interview clothes.

I'd go for a dress too - when my tummy is feeling wobbly trousers/skirts just make me feel fat and give me a visible waistband - not a great look for confidence!

How about a dress that nips you in at the waist, with smart pair of heels? - something along these lines -

(not sure if the colour will work on you but I'm looking at the shape)

Perhaps look for something a bit open at the neckline to balance your big boobs - not to show cleavage but I'm big boobed and find scoop necks often balance me out a bit better than high necklines.

Make sure you start off with well fitting underwear of course, everything else will follow easily after that!
