I have a flabby stomach (can't even blame it on 'babies' now blush) and a muffin top <mmmm...lovely>
Please, someone tell me they have found a good dress out there...

Ok, buy some control pants and your choices will be expanded greatly. But until then, it sounds like shift style would skim the bits you don't want to show. I'll have a looky for you......

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:42:57

too plain? I'm thinking layering with a top and with boots

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:44:49

white stuff, nice shape, could wear with cardi

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:45:11

LOL Spanx are my friend!
I like that dress. LOVE layering, just have a pathological fear of jersey because of all of my lumps and bumps blush

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:46:15

We ALLL have lumps and bumps. A pattern would disguise them more. I bought a great dress in Matalan t'other day, hang on.

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:46:28

LOVE white stuff and that dress is gorgeous but I am short and not sure I can carry off patterns that big. Maybe just need to get over my fear of jersey grin

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:47:06

yy that is true about pattern

TheMoistWorldOfSquelchedBrains Thu 30-Oct-08 21:49:14

I bought one of these recently. Skims over my wobbly tum a treat.

Spanx are your friend.

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:49:57

If you bung a little cardi over, no one will see anything. Can't find matalan dress, but Its dead colourful, small pattern and I wear it with teal tights and brown mary janes.

I'll keep looking, LOVE shopping vicariously...

TheMoistWorldOfSquelchedBrains Thu 30-Oct-08 21:50:14


DANCES had not declared that Spanx were her friend when I wrote that. lol grin

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:50:55

What do you think about this monsoon

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:51:04

Thats a nice dress, moist.

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:52:15

its a shame she's sitting down but I like the dress and boots combo

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:52:27

Ooooooooooooh, I like that Oasis dress too smile

Septimus - I saw them first wink

TheMoistWorldOfSquelchedBrains Thu 30-Oct-08 21:52:28

Why, thank you smile

Monsoon one is good

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:53:03

this is bold but funky

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:53:28

Not so keen on that maidamess, too fussy..sorry.

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:54:02

Yes Monsoon is nice. Dorothy Perkins have loads like that, for £15, in lots of colours. Could be a bit summery?

mrsmaidamess Thu 30-Oct-08 21:55:16

dorothy perkins , like Monsoon

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:57:39

OOoh, can you link to Dorothy Perkin ones please.

DANCESwithLordPsGhost Thu 30-Oct-08 21:58:00
