Sun dresses - struggling!

Hi Stylistas,

Struggling to find a sundress (or two).... I'm a size 10-12, but a bit wobbly round the edges, conscious of arms, quite busty.

I'm after something light for throwing on in warmer weather, preferably with decent sleeves.

I like the shape of some of the Ghost tea dresses but always feel a bit twee in them, that vintage look isn't really me. I have tried a few Hush dresses with waist bands but they look like maternity sacks on me....

Any ideas would be very much appreciated! Separates work well in me but I need a few dresses for easily throwing on with trainers/sandals.

I reccomend the style wrap dresses for your/my figure. I've got one on now that's a midi and has really loose sleeves, lovely and flowy and cool, highlights the good shape! Have to wear a cami top underneath or boobs will be allll out. Get mine from new look, next, H&M, Dorothy Perkins x

Avoid anything with an elasticated line round the waist. I'm busty too and those sort of dresses/playsuits make me look mis-shapen.

Thanks for all tips so far - wrap dresses I can't do, not without a cami and I can't say I love those.... v neck is okay, but I find wrap dresses cling to the tummy too!

Any other ideas?
