I have a funeral coming up and I need a pratical black dress. If I could use it for work as well that would be good. Size 10/12 above knee length and fitted. I am large of norks so round back best. I'm planning to hit the shops this morning but has anyone for any ideas what's out there? I hate shopping so any help is good. Budget up to 40 if possible

Is the neckline too high?

It's a little high but along the right thinking. im in town, been in a lot of shops and so far bought a set of saucepans and a childs t shirt! Now in the library for a mooch and sit down but I'm running out of ideas!

I feel your pain as not keen on high street shopping,tend to just order a load from asos
or somewhere like that and try them on at home !!

I love my new Boden blackberry dress, I can dress it up or down... trying to find a link, but for some reason I don't see the black available..I only bought it 2 weeks ago!

If you have a BHS near you it's worth popping in as everything is reduced. I got this a few weeks ago and paid about £20 for it, it's probably even less now. Fits beautifully, very flattering

Thank you all, some good ideas. I popped into next earlier but didn't see those dresses so maybe a trip to the big next is in order, which is next too the big asda.

Often better to order it online
Much more choice

But it's having stuff delivered and taking it back if it's wrong. I'm never at home so packages are a bit of an issue!
