Help me find a dress. My neck is covered in bruises.

I have an important event coming up tomorrow. After an operation, my neck is covered in bruises and I have a scar (luckily not too noticeable). Ideally I would like black but am open to suggestions. It needs to be fairly modest (not boring though, just not a clubbing dress but not a work dress). I am five foot and a size 12.

Sorry for the short notice.

Could you just wear a normal dress and cover the bruises with a silk scarf?

Is this too daytime?

You guys are fab, knew I could rely on the MN style and beauty gang. I'm off into town in a minute to have a look and they are all gorgeous. Particularly love the Phase 8 one.

I went for this in the end. It looks a bit frumpy on the hanger but looks fab on. I'm going to accessorise with some nude heels, gold leaf shaped earrings and a sparkly gold handbag. Got some matching nail varnish too and getting my hair put up tomorrow. Exciting grin

Nice dress, but surely it doesn't cover the bruises?

You can go for that Phase Eight one, you can get 20% off if you go to womanandhome/phaseeight

It's lovely.
Are the bruises on your chest and shoulders rather than your neck?

With this dress, you can see about 10% of the bruising whereas with the dress I was going to wear I was more like 80%. Unless I wore a polo neck then I don't think I could do too much better grinFeeling a lot better about it now and off to get my hair done at 12.

And yes, it is neck and shoulders.
