Hi, my cousin is getting married next week and the dress I thought I was going to wear doesn't fit. I'm 5 ft 2 and carry lots of weight in my stomach area. Would need sleeves or wear a cardigan due to scars on arms . It needs to be dressy but can only afford to spend about 100 in total. Can anyone help, style isn't my strong point

Evening dress (as in dress code) or a dress for the evening do?

How about this, it'd be longer on you.

What size shoes are you after?

Hi Mrs Lettuce, it's dress for the full day and evening. I'm thinking maybe even trousers and top as I'm still breastfeeding so might make it easier

SteffiMuse Sun 22-May-16 22:13:48

This is a lovely dress

PebbleTTC Sun 22-May-16 22:16:10

I think it would make me much bigger than I am

MrsLettuce Sun 22-May-16 22:22:38

trousers (or skirt) and top is a good idea if you're BF yes. Easier for sleeves too. Is it full, wrist length we need? Do you have shoes or a bag that might work?

Anything here you like?

Or maybe in Phase Eight ?

MrsLettuce Sun 22-May-16 22:33:00

But, is there an evening dress dress code? Am confused smile

I'm a short size 18 and am wearing this to a wedding next weekend www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Monsoon-PIPPA-Blue-Maxi-Dress-szs-12-14-16-18-20-22-Cruise-Coast-Party-/181838535628?var=&hash=item2a566bdbcc:m:mEiK03FCVcz0U6uoFL61NHA

Not on sale anymore so only on ebay but it looks fab. I will be wearing spanx underneath to cover lumps and bumps but I have a big belly and it looks fine.

No dress code as such just dressy wedding clothes

I have black heels and a beige colour too. Half sleeve would be perfect, Iv really left all this very late!

MrsLettuce Sun 22-May-16 23:08:36

this with your black heels and a pinky-beige clutch would look great. If you're ok to 'go off' to BF you can just lift to feed.

MrsLettuce Sun 22-May-16 23:34:05

this, these and a black clutch?

Thanks lettuce, I like the first one but think I need to try something like that on before I buy. I think I'll take half day tomorrow and go to the shops
