I ain't sugar coating it, I'm a fat frump . I'm going to a (not particularly posh, I don't think) wedding in early November and all my 'wedding' dresses are summer ones. I'm a size 18/20 with an hourglass lurking somewhere in there. I have awful legs but will expose them if the dress is distracting enough and I can wear black/dark tights. Dress needs to be below the knee.
I have spotted this Lindy Bop dress which I would probably wear with one of their navy bolero type cardies, navy tights and shoes and a dinky little navy hat with a little veil I've got. The cost of this dress is extreeeeeemely attractive to me as I need to buy the shoes and cardy. I don't really do high heels so a lowish wedge would be ideal. Ugh I've just been searching for shoes and can't find anything!
I don't like not being able to see the dress on a model, but it looks like it would be long enough. Love the idea of a big boufy petticoat but that would pull the length up a bit wouldn't it?
I like the shape of the dress but not the pattern. I like the shoes but think they may be a bit clunky for the dress. I think I would look for something without a pattern, in a beautiful dark jewel colour, like a maroon?
I wear Lindy Bop dresses every time I have to dress up. I have NORKS (see NN) and am not in the least petite. Petticoat underneath makes me feel all swishy Irregular Choice shoes make me feel funky Little cropped cardy over the top to hide my un-toned arms
I saw the title and came on to suggest Lindybop! Love all their dresses and they fit well. I usually wear them with these shoes which are very comfy and I can walk for miles in them. Have to admit I find wedges a bit frumpy, these are as comfy as wedges I promise!
