have a posh function coming up soon at dh's work, it is a annual thing and i am dreading it more this year than ever as i have failed miserably at trying to lose weight.

it has to be a long dress (i am 5'11 so good luck finding something suitable wink) and even though i am not fussy about colour i dont want anything that is "boring" black, dont mind if its funky/cool/sexy black iykwim hmm

i am a size 16 but dresses are usually a problem as i have 36g boobs but then smaller waist, only problem here is my jiggly jelly belly but i can get good support pants so dont worry about that to much.

ideally i think i would like someone corsert style to show of my good points, my legs are the hideous part of me but as the dress is long this wont be a problem.

have not really thought of a budget as i hate finding a suitable dress so much i would be willing to pay out for something spectacular.

forgot to add since i have huge norks backless is not a option (sad shame cause i have a lovely back) but can get away with a strapless so low back is not a problem.

love that dress, but would a us12 fit?

US 12 is UK 16 so worth a try!

That DVF dress is phenomenal!! Absolutely stunning!

With some good support undergarment you would indeed be Jessica Rabbit!
