Hiya I need something to wear to a wedding next week. I’m 5’8”, 35, size 12. I’m feeling a bit chubby since Christmas so I don’t want anything short and I would like sleeves. I think I suit more fitted styles... I haven’t got tome to go shopping properly. Has anyone seen anything nice?! X

Not sure of budget but I'd try to go for something not totally wedding-guest-ish so you can wear it again...

This jumpsuit?

With bright pink heels and a clutch with pink in it? Or metallic heels and clutch? With some 'statement' jewellery?

P.s. 5'8'' and size 12 is definitely not chubby!!

Take a look at Dancing Leopard online. i just bought a lovely long shirt dress for a wedding from there.

Thanks ladies. Lovely suggestions.
Unfortunately the jumpsuit is a bit out of my price range currently!
I really like the dancing leopard stuff. Have you ever ordered from them? I just just wondering what the quality is like

Saw lots of this sort of thing in the Boden sale, hopefully would reach you in time if it's next weekend

I just ordered a dress - nice quality and fit. I'd say just as good as any high st shop. 🙂
