Gorgeous, but can you wear a bra?

southeastastra Thu 10-Jul-08 20:13:06

that's lovely, only size 6 left!

MadamAnt Thu 10-Jul-08 20:14:29

Oooh side view is particularly good. I likey.

Amphibimum Fri 11-Jul-08 10:39:45

i got a size 14, which is a wee bit roomy, but its designed to be ridiculously tight i think. im not a 14, but it looks good.
the side and back views are really really cool! (said in manner of person in 30s who lives in the countryside for last 5 yrs and is well aware she has no idea what is currently 'cool')
iwas wearing a bra when i tried it, so yes.

Jeez, it's got a bustle - my arse would look colossal...

Amphibimum Fri 11-Jul-08 19:16:12

yes but its colossalality would appear to be amassed fabric, not lard. grin

MadamAnt Fri 11-Jul-08 19:27:42

I am so tempted to buy it.

I have no actual event/occasion to wera it to, though.

Amphibimum Fri 11-Jul-08 19:30:12

blush me neither. but i fell in love.
tis rare to find clothing i feel sexy in since having dc tbh.

S1ur Fri 11-Jul-08 19:30:39

very pretty.

love the shoulders, less keen on drop waist line down skirt front. But still, lovely smile

check the returns from online shopping... maybe tis easy/free to return and therefore no risk to order and try on... [bad influence]

Amphibimum Fri 11-Jul-08 19:33:48

oh have just looked at the other colour option - much easier to see the dress properly in calico.

MadamAnt Fri 11-Jul-08 19:37:14

I agree. And it's obviously v timeless. It has wardrobe staying-power.

yes. the shop had lots of things in 4's 6's and 8's. and this random 14 (which is actually about a 12 imo). was about to walk out with inferiority/elephant complex when i found that beauty.
