Please help. I need a beautiful wedding outfit but I'm really large and really don't want to go.
I need to feel great on the day. I'm overweight and my legs are not good so what do I wear?
I'm happy in loose trousers, a maxi dress but need tops of arms covering.
My best bit is my cleavage and I have long brown hair but that's it.
I was so trying to lose weight but haven't yet managed as so much other stuff going on. Please help with this summer wedding. Thank you x

As a former size 18, I would recommend you look to Boden for dresses. Their jersey dresses usually hang really well, so they don't cling but skim over belly. I wore a maxi dress from there a few years ago to a summer wedding and it was comfortable, flattering and non-tent like!

If you dare to bare a little bit of leg, something like this in a longer length? I have this dress and have had many compliments in it, but it might not be dressy enough for a wedding.

Or Phase 8. I got a gorgeous maxi dress from there a few years ago, it's got a knotted v neck sort of style so it drapes beautifully from a plunge neckline. Mine is a 14 but it fitted and still looked good when I was an 18.

This style is nice

There are often phase eight dresses on eBay - I have bought a few this way.

Or, a jumpsuit can be really flattering, especially phase eight ones which are usually made from really good heavy jersey material which is very flattering. Eg

Most Maxi dresses tend not to have sleeves. So think about getting a little short sleeved bolero as well.

Blue with V neck
Blue and white

Thank you so very much, all of you flowers after much more research I have ordered the navy and white dress from phase eight. I haven't really got the cash but if it makes me feel fab on the day it will be so worth it. I'm waiting for its arrival and will post about it once tried on X

Thank you so much slug. The blue and white maxi is superb. 💐

Amy ideas for shoes and will the bolero you have mentioned above slug, go with it? X

So, for any women size 18+, with large boobs, stomach and legs, I highly recommend this as a smart and glamorous dress for a wedding

Really nice dress. I'd probably go for some block heeled sandals, there are loads around this season, something like these dune from JL
