I'm off to Northern Spain in July. I'm too chubby for my liking. There is a beach but, it's not a tourist spot. Just think North Devon with everyone speaking Spanish. I hate the thought of chubby legs rubbing together in a dress and becoming sore! blush I'm staying with my aunt who is lovely but very polished. How can I not embarrass her?

fat tummy, big hips & fat legs. Top half not to bad but fatter than 5 years ago. Can't blame ds but since he was born sad can't wwear heels due to the fact I have flat feet.

If you are size 14 you are hardly a whale
get some flattering dresses and wear cycling shorts type knicks if legs rub

I'm size 14, age 38, and I will be wearing wide leg linen trousers with quite fitted tops because then I look slimmer, flattering dresses that skim my hips and hide my tum and not-too-high wedges, because I don't do heels

40 and size 14 here too.

Sound very similar to

Love wide leg linen trousers, smock tops and dresses that fall nicely over my big belly (3DC's)

Like both dresses but might be too short. But I'll have a look and try them on. Nothing worse than giving tips and the op not having a go. I love shirt dresses might hunt them out!

I am 38 and size 14 and what I am wearing would not inspire you at all.
