this one
Love love love it so much.

So if I am 5'7'', size 14, 36B boobs, typical pear shape with long legs, short body and a certain amount of 'bootay' would this wok on me?

I think there is a pic of me on my profile

bratnav Sun 27-Jul-08 13:14:47

work not wok, and pic on profile is useless hmm

I think that's a pretty flattering shape for most body types tho am no trinny. And it's a real bargain so maybe take a risk and flog it on ebay if it turns out not to look as good as you hope?

I think it's horrid. Frumpy

Gobbledigook Sun 27-Jul-08 15:28:58

Chiffony frilly fabrics are not 'with it' imo. The colour would drain the average person too.

Tbh I don't like it much.

Were you planning on getting the pink or black ?

I think that there is a very high risk of that dress looking a bit mother of the bride. Sorry. I suspect that is the reason it is so discounted.

MOB not good, I am only turning 30 in 3 weeks shock

I was thinking the pink rather than the black

Gobbledigook Sun 27-Jul-08 16:05:37

Yikes, no.

Gobbledigook Sun 27-Jul-08 16:06:58

Someone who is not yet 30 should not be wearing that dress!

Most of the stuff on that Ghost website is horribly frumpy. Is it not aimed at the over 50s?

My mother is 75 and it is the kind of thing she would like - sorry Bratnav

bratnav Sun 27-Jul-08 16:21:09

OK OK I will try and find something else unless anyone else wants to......

VersdeSociete Sun 27-Jul-08 16:30:11

Oi, Ghost is not all frumpy and for over-50s, some is v nice. that dress is quite MOB though...

Gobbledigook Sun 27-Jul-08 16:34:31

It's just my opinion based on what I've just scrolled through on the sales page. Not my bag anyway - I consider it old fashioned.

cornsilk Sun 27-Jul-08 16:38:12

I don't like it.

oi Sun 27-Jul-08 16:40:22

lol GDG

I don't think it's that bad at all but it looks see through?

I need to find a dress for a wedding for next Saturday and had completely forgotten until today arrghh

oi Sun 27-Jul-08 16:41:14

in fact, I think it looks ok (though I hate viscose)

flowerybeanbag Sun 27-Jul-08 16:47:13

I quite like it actually. I don't think it would look MOB on someone young and un-frumpy.

BBBee Sun 27-Jul-08 17:03:46

i think that given your body shape you might benefit from a tighter fit round the midriff to show off difference between waust and hips - the dress skims over waist to hips so might make waist seem bigger IYSWIM

oi Sun 27-Jul-08 17:11:37

why is everything pink? I've just looked at a lot of the online shops and loads of dresses are in that violent pink colour

chipmonkey Sun 27-Jul-08 17:28:50

Shape OK, colour horrible and I don't think it would look great in black either, sorry.

maidamess Sun 27-Jul-08 17:30:47

I didn't like it on the other thread either! I don't think it has any redeeming features at all...sorry!

Mumsnut Mon 28-Jul-08 10:04:43

I own it and like it!

Mumsnut Mon 28-Jul-08 10:05:02

I own it and like it!

Oops. Didn't mean to be THAT emphatic ...
