Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
I don't really want to buy anything for a wedding we're going to next month, but the dresses I've got are either evening or day/work. I will have to wear flats and my work dresses are mostly plain coloured jersey which don't feel very special. I think my options are to try and dress one of these up or shell out for something new.
I'm a size 16 with massive boobs - currently a 36j. My bottom half is usually about a 12 but I'll be about 32 weeks pregnant and it's 2nd time around so I'm quite big.
My normal style tends to be fitted rather than floaty but I'm not thin/toned enough for bodycon. I like 50s 60s styles. I have pale skin, dark hair and favour bright colours over pastels. I don't mind florals but nothing too girly/cutesy. DH hates lace so I avoid it.
Had looked at Tiffany rose on eBay and nothing grabbing me in my size at the moment, but will check again in a couple of days. At the moment there's a lot of lace or dresses that didn't look like they'd accommodate huge boobs.
If I wore the purple jersey dress with a knot front I have shoes that match pretty well with a big rose on the front. Guess I could get a contrasting handbag and hair thing/fascinator.
The purple knot dress is gorgeous and could definitely be dressed up or down so could be worn again.
I've just bought a Tiffany Rose dress for my sister's wedding in May as I'm maid of honour, and it is very generous in both the boob and bump areas (I'm currently 38E but it will accommodate further growth). Though if you don't want lace, it might not be right for you anyway!
