I have been nuting a dress like this forever and I did in fact buy this last week. It is perfect for all my fussy requirements -
A lowish neckline Long sleeves knee length (or below) soft colour plant-based fibre - (especially no polyester)
I was so happy when I bought it hom but then DH, who is a great judge, immediately said, 'the pockets make you look too wide,' and it is true. the completely unnecessary pockets make actually really unflattering. I am bereft.
I really need to have my arms and upper legs covered due to an allergy and I need a low neckline because of largeish boobs, and I need a non-plasticky fibre as I live in a very hot country. Have you seen anything that matches what I want? I would be very grateful!
John Lewis has that Whistles dress for £45 in several colours (I've got the black and navy). It's enormous btw, I'm a 32FF, usually wear a Large in places like Topshop or a 14 in H&M but bought that dress in a Small.
No not really and that's why I hadn't appreciated it in the shop. It is that you can see the lines of two big squarters across the hips and it is like an optical illusion making me look much wider than I am.
