Dress for job interview - public sector, middle management

I've got an interview next week, but nothing to wear. I'm temporarily a bit fatter than usual due to a knackered Achilles, and stress, probably about a 16, but with a very huge arse and thighs. I don't really do trousers, and tend to favour blues and greys - was amateur House of Coloured as a cool winter. Anything overly structured tends to look a bit shit on me, in part due to cleavage.

Job is public sector, probably middle management. Where I currently work is v casual, but the job itself is very similar.

Anyone seen a good dress?

It know it must be a cliche but with a curvy figure, a wrap dress is probably your best best. Good places to try are Boden, Phase Eight and Baukjen:

Or this one:

I would also go online to House of Fraser and order lots of dresses to try on before deciding.

I love the baukjen! Are the sizes generous?

I would say these are fairly spot on.

I am similar proportions to you (bit fatter) and clingy wrap dresses look shite on me.

I am public sector senior management ( would say though that I am definitely the scruffy casual end) and my favourite suit at the moment is Next

this dress and jacket is very flattering on.

This dress again is very flattering, I'm about 5ft9 and it's a good length.

OP has said that anything structured looks shit on her - she has huge boobs and bum so I'm not sure if the first dress would look right on her.
