there are loads of geat work dresses around at the moment, kind of smart pinafores IYKWIM. BUT they all seem to have high slash type necklines that just does not suit the large of brears sucha smyself. I've tried on 4 diferent styles today in Mand S and all styles made me look likemy tits were growing out of my neck.
I like the M&S ones. There are loads around at the mo. Just try a few different styles. Have you tried Oasis, Warehouse, Zara? Or if your budget stretches a bit further, my favourite is Banana Republic.
I've been interested in work dresses (though, as my name suggests, have the opposite problem with my shape).
However, everything I've seen so far looks like it's intended to be worn by itself (no tops underneath etc) and has been sleeveless which means exposing my upper arms. Not something I'm comfortable with since I noticed them flapping around independently as I waved bye bye to my children at nursery
Any links would be lovely! Sorry I can't help out.
Ghost, Warehouse, Oasis, Coast, Monsoon seem to fit me well, in that they expand and cling where they need to. Cannot fit into any top half from WhiteStuff/Gap without going up to a 14 and then rest just billows.
Just bought a dress in Bravissimo today- fitted heavy black jersey, cap sleeves, scoop neckline, fancy stuff going on to hide tummy in clever fashionable way, no ties, very slimming, easy to dress up or down.
Oddly must have just come out as not on website yet so I can't link to it but do keep your eye out. It's £45. I have recently found Bravissimo clothes a bit horrid but this is a winner.
