I'm having abdominal surgery next week and really need a dress, as I only currently own jeans or trousers. I'm a 16 and 5'7" I love seasalt, but most are slightly too short for what I want. Ideally something below the knee, but not maxi. Fit and flare/wrap There is one lovely seasalt one, but they're out of stock online and in store of the 16 I want a pattern and short sleeves. Ideally under £50, but can stretch to more for the perfect dress! Can you help me please?
Oasis have a few t shirt material wrap dresses that are super soft so they won't tug or hurt you. The one I've included comes in a longer length but if your 5"7 then the others might finish just above the knee ever so slightly. They come in S,M and large. A medium is a 12 to 14, a large should be perfect for you. I'm a 14 and most of the time I'm a medium. Take a look in the website as they have some lovely wrap dresses.
That's a very similar shape to the Boden casual jersey dress. It's available in petite, regular and long length so you should hopefully be able to get one that's a good length for you, it's normally on the knee length wise if you buy your normal length. There's a 25% off sale starting tomorrow so don't buy until then.
