Cut to the chase:

Size 18/20
Hourglass shape with big boobs (need bra) and post pregnancy wobbly belly

Not got a clue about fashion/ hate shopping.

Prefer not to spend over £40.

Others will be in sparkly/ lbd type get up.

Mostly 30 somethings.

Any ideas?

Nice new bra, then clothes shop! A good bra changes your whole shape.

Do you like dresses or trousers?

Clothes?

Sorry. That's not helpful, I know.

How about these - £15 today and I've heard very good things about them:

Can't copy, but I just got a black midi dress with a sort of "cage" detail in an 18 from ASOS CURVE. £35. And if i say so myself I look fucking brilliant in it!

I saw that dress Paula, I loved it!

I'm the same size shape. I find a pair of well cut jeans , heels , nice sparkly flowing camisole top ( in every shop I've just bought a lovely one from primark )dress up/ down with jewellery or sparkly shoes is super flattering and age appropriate without being too young or old

I like that lady vintage site!

I've never bought any clothes online before though. I usually have to try on 10 things in a shop to find something that fits right.

It has to be a dress/skirt.

Also is like something sparkly!

Ooo that's a bargain, tofu!

I second Asos curve - they have some lovely flattering dresses and I'm a similar size and shape to you.

Love the asos curve dress, but I'm only 5'2, what the length like Paula? Thank you !

I feel your pain as I have been doing a similar trawl. I'd say avoid anything clingy, you want to be able to relax and enjoy yourself. What about this or this? over black leggings
