Have a huge family party to go to at the end of month and really dreading it as have put on a few pounds around the tummy area.

Have a relatively small bust, and bum just a slightly large tummy and hips

Been looking at dresses than come in just under bust as this area is quite small but need something that doesnt cling to my stomach.

Any ideas really appreciated!!!!

Sorry do you mean more empire line?

I really don't know what I mean, never been a huge follower of fashion just normally buy what I like, but the extra weight is meaning what I would normally wear draws a lot of attention to the fact I'm slightly rounder than normal.

Spanx or other punitive underwear?

Bardot style neckline to widen you out at the top andbalanceyou our more could be flattering and worth a try

Hi the Grinch, Have you looked in LK Bennett?
something like this or this? this may be an unforgiving fabric but with the proper under armour might be fab!wink

Does it have to be a dress? I have a tummy and do much better with trousers and a top.
