Well after my post yesterday I thought I was sorted for a hen night. My Oh came back from working away and says that the dress doesnt suit my shape! (hes no Gok Wan)
So I need some help, I have two other dresses from previous occassions in my wardrobe.
(excuse the messy room - 17yr old teenager)!

Thr floral short one is the one I was going t wear, these are my other options.

Personally, I wouldn't wear a maxi dress for a hen night. I like both the floral and the pale coloured one. The pale colour one looks the most flattering!

The long one really shows off your lovely figure but might be a bit fussy for a hen? I'd go with the plain one. But.... Sometimes the bride is in a very light colour do you know?

I like the pale one best sorry. However, the floral one still looks nice.

Thanks everyone, twobambinos she has a black and gold dress.
OK so plain or floral one

The pale dress looks most flattering.

Pale dress first, looks really good, then maxi dress.

I can't see the light one , maxi too casual .. TT floral one a bit floral for me for a hen night ..Haven't you got a plainer one ?

theothersideof40 Tue 14-Jun-16 13:24:58

Imjessie, no I dont really do dresses, usually trousers and tops!

Judydreamsofhorses Tue 14-Jun-16 13:40:25

Do you have to wear a dress? The pale one is nicest, I think, but is there a reason you can't wear nice trousers and top if that's what you prefer?

Everyone is going in dresses! So I think I would feel strange in trousers. I havnt been on a hen night for years so forgot what people wear!

Karcheer Tue 14-Jun-16 14:10:31

I prefer the pale one, but you say hen night... Is it actually in the day? All dresses look like daywear to me :/

cindyrella Tue 14-Jun-16 14:11:43

Definitely pale dress with the shoes not the sandals. Looks really flattering.

theothersideof40 Tue 14-Jun-16 14:16:55

Thanks cindyrella, I was just trying the shoes. Have some nice gold ones now.
Karcheer, its day and night, if you have anymore suggestions then more than happy to look!

The maxi dress is the most flattering on your (rather nice!) figure.

The others look a bit work-like to me.

keeponkeepinon Tue 14-Jun-16 14:27:58

pale one works best!

theothersideof40 Tue 14-Jun-16 14:48:52

This is a closer picture of the blush one, has little beads on it
Thinking this for hen night and blur one for a christening and two evening wedding receptions I have

Fuzzypeggy Tue 14-Jun-16 18:39:21

Pale one def most flattering IMO, it looks nice

Mrsmaudwatts Tue 14-Jun-16 18:49:04

The first one is lovely!! Whats wrong with it? Shows off your lovely hourglass shape!

Polkadot1974 Tue 14-Jun-16 20:55:18

Pale with sandals for me

theothersideof40 Wed 15-Jun-16 12:14:39

Thanks everyone. Pale - blush one it is!

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Wed 15-Jun-16 12:24:34

The long dress really shows off your hourglass shape but I like the pale one too. Please try to find some matching shoes though wink

theothersideof40 Wed 15-Jun-16 12:34:24

That made me laugh Ilostitintheearly nineties!
