Find me a lovely outfit in a nice bright colour (eg peacock blue.... no mustards, olives, browns bleuuuuurrrgggghhhhhh!!!!!!) and a nice hat to go with it.
I am large of Nork and sadly (sob) large of tum.... yes I am the one that occasionally gets seats on the tube as they think I carry a baby in there......and I don't say no to the seat
It needs to be under £100 preferably... but if it's really nice I'll stretch (gulp) to £150. Cheap and classy (is there such a thing?) is good!
Oh and whilst you're there... some shoes please. It would be great if the outfit were timeless or at least wearable again. Don't worry I like bright colours and don't just save them for special occasions.
So my lovelies... if I haven't been too demanding........... show me what you got!
Try Ebay Marsy - I'm sure lots of people have bought expensive wedding outfits and are now flogging them - they only get worn once don't they? Npt sure what size you are, but here's an example or end of season Monsoon dresses there are loads of hats and fascinators on there too.
righty ho - sounds like you need a dress with a demure (and warm) jacket or similar for the church that you can the shed to strut your stuff on the dancefloor.
the ruched waistline of this shape of dress (not necc with halterneck though) is remarkably flattering to tums. This is also a possibility so long as you have a good strapless bra.
One that flares empirely from the bust thus or thus, skimming tum, though you may find this makes you look more pg not less.
A dress with some black in it means you can wear black shoes & bag, v useful to wear again.
