I have a hen party coming up in two weeks, we're going to a big city for cocktails, mainly bars, probably some clubs.
What do I wear? I'm 27, but I have zero confidence in wearing anything other than jeans and a hoody since having my three children.
I'm a size 8-10, 5ft 7, no boobs, mummy tummy, and wide hips. I have quite long legs, but they're covered in varicose veins and stretch marks, so need to stay hidden.
I was thinking a jumpsuit but there are a million different styles! And they all seem tailored for women with tiny waists and big boobs!

this jumpsuit? it's a v neck but the model seems to have small boobs and it looks lovely on her.

Warehouse seem to have quite a lot of jumpsuits on their website so hopefully there will be some that you might like here

I find that some of their dresses are designed for bigger hips and to skim the tummy and so can be flattering dependant on the style.

Oasis do one too with a higher neckline which could be dressed up with the right necklace and heels. I'm not sure how flattering it would be one though as it doesn't look quite right on the model imo. Worth a try though as I also find Oasis clothes good for bigger hips!

Oh there's one in the new Hush collection that has an open back - if you are comfortable with that it's a great way to be a bit daring without having to put everything on show. Here: jumpsuit There is 10% off with S17PREVIEW code

you are kinda similiar in size and shape to to me. Id wear a high waisted midi skirt which would hide most of your legs whilst accentuating them at the same time (are your VV all over? mines only go just below the knee so midi skirts cover them mostly) and a pretty top/blouse tucked in. Small boobs can be rectified with a good bra! As i tell dp, dont bother buying me bras unless they have boost/extreme/x sizes bigger in the name!

Also how do jumpsuits fit on you? I find that most of the seem to be made for women 5'4 and under!

Oh my lord and I think all jumpsuits are styled for women with NO boobs and straight figures, lol. Just from the description of your height and size it sounds like jumpsuits would be a great choice!

If I want to be comfy out and want to cover my legs I often go for the velvet thigh high boots and flowy dress or sparkly/perspex high heels and jeans look. You can see here for an idea of the look I mean - www.essexglam.co.uk

Hope this helps, go get em, all the best!

this dress?. The style means it should accommodate hips and hide tummy. As it will still be cold in 2 weeks time wear with black opaques and heels/heeled boots. Will flatter your long legs but hide VV.

If you feel most comfortable in jeans, why not do skinny jeans, heels and a nice top?
long slim legs will look fab in skinny jeans and you can choose a top to highlight what ever part you prefer, a deep v works good with smaller boobs.

I have 4 jumpsuit and I LOVE them but they are impractical for going to the loo in. Something to consider if you're out on the lash.

I love those pleated metallic skirts with a simple black crew neck top, opaques and ankle boots ?
