It's my brothers wedding in 2.5weeks and my sister still needs a dress.
She thinks dresses dont suit her but I think she's looking at the wrong styles.

She's quite opposite to me and so doesnt suit the things i suit.

She's 37, size 14. She wants to hide her bum and tops of legs.

I think a V neck dress cut below the knee or tea-length would go well but feel free to correct me.
She's dark with dark hair so suits colours.

Can you help me find some dresses or suggest some places to look then i'm going to send her a list of possibles.

I've managed to put some photos of her on my profile if it helps

I've got one on my profile that I've bought for a wedding. I'm size 14 too. From Monsoon sale, if you're interested.

Your sister sounds a lot like me. I bought this dress recently, simply because I loved it, it suits me and I never have anything smart and girly to wear when I need it. And now I even have an occassion to wear it!

I'd suggest a wrap dress or something that enhances her curves.

I have similar colouring and I suit bright/jewel colours.

How about Fenn Wright Manson? Their wrap dresses are really good quality and always suit me (similar shape to your sis):

Pacific blue wrap dress

For something more 'weddingy' how about this?:

Coast Demure

Or this (subtly sexy and navy good with her hair):

Coast bubble dress

I always thought that Bravissimo dress was pink, VRS. I might have to buy one now!

The Bravissimo dress is a dark pinky red. Sort of raspberry. Sort of Ruby. Less pink than it looks in pic. But def red rather than pink.

Oooh good suggestions, thanks.

I'm compiling a list of links to email her to look at so i'll add these to it.

MrsMuddle I really like that dress, have already suggested it to her so i'll see what she says.

Thank you. I'm SO not a dress person - my norks are too big and my legs are too short -but I'm really looking forward to wearing it because it's so light ans swishy!

Best of all, it was reduced to £40 in the sale (so there may not be any left).

Hope your sis finds somthing.

You'll look fab! I really love the colour

Tis, lovely. Very similar to the Bravissimo one BRS has in style. Definitely curve enhancing grin
