It's my graduation in just over 2 weeks and I still haven't found a dress!

Suits a size 18 figure with big belly and bum. Needs to be at least knee length, needs to have some type of sleeve, ideally mid-long as it's likely to be cold and can't be fitted as will emphasise the big belly and bum so ideally skater type etc.

I've looked everywhere it seems like it dosnt exist!

Have you tried monsoon? I got a gorgeous one for my little boys christening in the summer, I'm a very self conscious size 16 and also wanted midi with sleeves. The Ellie embroidered dress looks nice? Sold out in 18 but I found the sizing generous....mine was a similar style xx

On another thread someone recommended the Phase Eight Cara dress as being very flattering.

I've seen this which I like and think it fits the bill. It's also a bargain so could get new shoes, bag and accessories also!

Does it look smart enough for graduation? Never done it before to know how formal people normally dress.

Also it's navy so tan tights not black yes? What colour shoes / bag?

You can probably tell I usually live in jeans!
