Any ideas what I could wear over a tight-fitting dress to camouflage my arse?

Just that.

I lost weight in the last year, so in a fit of confidence bought a clingy dress for the Big Christmas Night Out - it is lovely and it does suit me with the appropriate scaffolding underneath, but as it is Not Black the acreage of backside seems vast.

Could I wear some kind of sleeveless silvery cardigan over the top of it?? Or have a long scarfy thing draped around my neck, dangling down my back?

Or should I just own my arse?!

Advice please thanks

Or a shrug? confused

Congrats on the weight loss

I'd just own it. I'm sure with the aforementioned appropriate scaffolding it actually looks great. Show off what you have and be confident about it.

I say own your arse, I have always wanted a curvy bum, so attractive

Own it, flaunt it! smile

You won't be able to see it, so don't worry about it

Honestly just leave it. Maybe some control pants/shorts or tights to make it all smooth?

How about a triangular shawl you can hook over your aunty used to make the most beautiful shawls.

Something like this but better/more suited to your dress.

Sit on it grin

Just wear the dress ...... and wiggle your bum!

I'm in the same boat ..... 4 stone off this year ...... I'm about to go out for drinks this afternoon in a very-pencil leather skirt, and a top whisper it tucked in!

I'm sure you'll look fab!

Oh, unanimous verdict! grin

It's the thought of having to get up and go to the loo with everybody staring at my backside.... I know, I know, the problem is not my bum but what's in my head hmm
I've got a great tucks-everything-in slip for underneath, so there should not be any VPL or lumps.

Drquin, I know, right? Tucking things in - amazing! grin

Ye gawds, suddenly a sparkly top, trousers and heels seems so safe and easy <gulp>

wish, I thought about a shawl like that but I think the dress is too structured/plain/all sharp angles and lines that the style would not match? I think.

Own it. All anyone will be thinking is that you look amazing.

Trying to cover it will just draw attention to it! I would love a bigger bum. They're the in thing! I bet you look great in your dress

BusterGonad Sat 26-Nov-16 13:33:37

Be proud of the backside!

Covering up your bum will ruin the look of your dress and let's not forget, a generous arse makes your waist look smaller.. Big bums are definitely in this season, you're totally on trend.

If you have a crisis of confidence, aim to drink enough so that you're past caring grin. I expect you to be on the dance floor too, Pacific, no sitting in the corner please.

Wish my bum was bigger. Luckily since having my baby 4 months ago it is a big bigger but then so is everything else * sob*

Own your arse, bet you'll look great.

I'm going for drinks today and have nothing to wear sad

Drquin Sat 26-Nov-16 13:53:36

I'm now wearing said pencil skirt ....... so "slim fitting" on the legs I have no choice BUT to wiggle wink

PacificDogwod Sat 26-Nov-16 16:15:49

a generous arse makes your waist look smaller

That shall be my new motto! grin

It's a civilised sit-down dinner with colleagues although the last time there was dancing when there was no dance floor <demure>

Whenever I feel a bit self conscious about my arse I employ my Invincible Shield Of Three Glasses of Prosecco As I'm Getting Ready. Everything looks and feels brilliant in it.

Another vote for own your arse. Everyone will be looking because you look fab.
