I’ve got a black tie do to go to next week. I have several posh frocks from years back and assumed I’d wear one of those. Just tried them on and they’re all too tight <sob> I can squeeze into them but they don’t look great, I have to say. So if I can find one in time for next week, I’d rather get a new one. I’m tall, early 40s, need a size 18 (or a looser-fitting 16!). Big boobs so nothing strapless as I can’t deal with having to find a strapless bra in time as well. Most of my weight is around my middle. Deep or bright colours look best on me, nothing blush/nude/pale. Budget up to £200 or so. Heeeeelp!
