I am begging you.

Size 10-12, bra 32DD-E

Ideally something light and floaty.

I am driving myself round the bend with pointless interweb surfing and need some direction!

Do you want shirt dress style buttoned up the front?
Or more pinafore style, short sleeves pull over your head style?

I saw something t'other day out with DD, but the edges of the armholes would have rubbed my poor armpits to chafing misery.

I think the softer more smocky type (I'm selling this well grin ) was New Look.

Weeeell, part of the problem appears to be that I don't really know what I want…. blush

Wide straps that hide bra, but no actual sleeves, I think.
I don't like empire line things - they just make me look like a barrel.
So either a generous swing dress or something more pinafore-like I think.

There are too many of them out there!!
I dont' do well with choice.
Communist Russia would have suited me on the fashion front <dither>

Matalan has a Tencel Denim dress - shirtlike with a drawstring pull belt.
I got a khaki shirt similar style/fabric, it's nice and light (I am of the hot'n'hormonal age blush )

On the model it looks just above knee length.

£20 so ok price.

I'm hot'n'hormonal too, so shall have a look at that, thank you! smile

Sorry, didn't read your brief - first one I linked to is probably out but the second one fits it perfectly!

I have this one, I'm a 32f and my bra straps don't show. It's quite light and floaty.

this looks better on, very boob friendly and bra friendly.

Oh, guys, thank you, all!

I've bought one off ebay blush

This one
Not v bra friendly, but I wanted it!! blush
I think I'll have to wear a bikini top as a bra on holiday….
