Find me a dress (please)

In a couple of weeks me and my DP are having our first child free weekend in 6 years ! We will be going out in the evening for dinner etc and I really want to find something lovely to wear instead of jeans and slightly greying stripey tops.

I am 5'6, a fourteen with large boobs, nice waist and rubbish legs. I would like something with sleeves that is not too short. Budget approx £30 per dress .....
Colour wise anything as long as it isn't purple, gold or orange.....

I have been looking online but think your pooled knowledge will be more effective!

Here's a few suggestions as a starting point. Not sure how dressed up you want to be.

Thank you! I do really like the red one and the striped one but they are a little too short for my tree trunk legs!

I do like this one!

The shirt dress is out of stock but something similar maybe

Very slinky dogtooth - go for it!
Have you checked the length of the two I posted? I was banking on the model being about 6ft.

Dogtooth one was a no....material was really baggy around the shoulders.... Back to the drawing board.

Not too sure about the Boohoo dress Chilly, I think I might feel a bit too glamorous! Thank you though....

I have ordered about 20 dresses from ASOS so fingers crossed....
