I am invited to a close friends wedding during the Christmas holidays and would like a dress that's really beautiful. I am a size 20, Is there such a dress?

What’s your bet? Studio 8 (by phase 8) have some beautiful dresses, but you’re looking at £100+

Budget not bet🙄

Shesparkles I can stretch to £150 for the right dress smile

Debenhams, Next and a few other places sell Studio 8, but Debenhams is definitely worth a look anyway as they do a lot of labels in a 20 🙂

I popped into Monsoon today and they had some beautiful dresses in the sale with 70% off. There were some navy blue ones with lovely beading (maxi length and knee length) that were reduced from £119 + to between £25 and £35!

Had them in a size 20 and would have been perfect for a winter wedding. Might be worth a look!

What style do you like? What colour? Navabi worth a look, Saint Bustier, Scarlett & Jo...lots will offer 10% off for first buy.

The truth is I don't even know what I like. I am the heaviest I have ever been and have decided that I shall dress with my weight in mind but want to look lovely. I have been stuck in a clothes rut for the past 2 years wearing baggy black pants and plain t shirts in various colours.
Thanks for the suggestions I will have a look at Debenhams. Never heard of Navabi, Saint Bustier or Scarlett and Jo but will check these out too x
