Every style of dress I try looks naff on me, I think. I'm 5'5, about 69kg, small boobs and a bit of weight to lose around my middle. My bum and thighs aren't massive but not slim. Dresses that cinch in the middle like Kirstie Allsop wears don't suit as they are unflattering on top. Knitted dresses and short dresses look ok on top but make my bottom half look big, especially if they end above knee. Boden /FatFace etc jersey dresses look forward on me. Is there another alternative?
