I'm 32, 5ft8, size 16 and normally allergic to colour and dresses Due to larger boobs the wrap front is slightly lower than on the picture (not indecent though) and dress is just below knee length. Have 4inch black heels, large black clutch and a black pashmina. Need to look pretty damn good as first time out with DH work colleagues.
Unfortunately my legs are horrible so the length is definitely needed. I have the dress, emergency purchase as wedding is this weekend and it was the best of a bad bunch really, a lot of LBD and lots of glitter due to time of year. High necks make me look huge, I mean even bigger than I already am. Think I'll need to brave the shops on Friday and see if there's anything else
Thanks, I'm so undecided! Tried it in again and like the style but think it's the pattern that's putting me off. I've got 3hrs on Friday that I think I'll go look for something else but it won't be the end of the world if I have to wear it. It's now complicated by the fact I think I've broken my toe so will need to rethink my shoes or pop painkillers to be able to wear the ones I planned
Have a look at chi chi clothing they sell on ASOS and ASOS do overnight delivery if you don't fancy wandering around shops on Friday. I've put on a bit of weight recently and like to try before I buy now. Good luck tomorrow!
