I am a large lady size 20-22 who would like to look nice for her DS's christening, have neen trawling but depressed about the choice out there

So which bits do you like to show, and which hide? And rough budget?

FiveGoMadInDorset Thu 02-Oct-08 22:32:27

No legs no arms, am short as well so nice smart trousers or long skirt, with a longish top budget about £150 as will keep in cupboard for a long time

FiveGoMadInDorset Thu 02-Oct-08 22:34:02

I had an idea about this skirt

JackieNo Thu 02-Oct-08 22:41:26

That skirt's really pretty. Might be difficult to match the colour for a top though. You should be fine to fit Monsoon size 20s.

lovely colour

comes in black too


gorge but not sure on etiquette of wearing black to a christening

maybe a bit too old lady?

nappyaddict Thu 02-Oct-08 22:43:31

and you can wear a pashmina, shrug, jacket, cardie etc over the top.

Like the second one, must come back to you tomorrow, got to feed DS and get to bed as early breakfasts but big thank you for your help.

How about something like this with a grey skirt, or a velvet skirt with this top?

JackieNo Thu 02-Oct-08 22:56:37

How about a dress, in the teal, or black - I think black's fine for a christening.

JackieNo Thu 02-Oct-08 22:58:43

Or this in the purple?

nappyaddict Thu 02-Oct-08 23:08:32

not sure about the flower..

Wow, thank you, I love that gery skirt that you found so will have a good look at that again.

Thank you both for your help.

nappyaddict - you're on a roll theregrin.

More stuff:
darker colours but a nice shape (and good quality stuff).
Ditto this,
Lovely skirt but rather £££.

Maybe some wide legged trousers with a tunic?
Sequin tunic
Or another lovely top
Same sort of shape but maybe a bit more casual.
