It shouldn't be this hard to find a dress! Where else should I try.
Want a new dress for mates 26th Birthday night out. Not black, maybe purple/blue. Not with high neckline due to norks (34DD), will happily wear boob tube stlye but prefer scoop/square neck. V neck can be dody if it's a cross V neck IYKWIM?
Have tried, River Island, Top Shop, FC, House of F, debenhams,Miss S, Dorothy P.
Am 5ft 2, size 12ish don't mind getting my legs out but nothing below the knee. Will be blonde, hazel eyes, fair skin.
HELP, what am I forgetting?!!! Don't have tome to shop properly so trying to a online reccy so can whizz around shops.
Ohh thanks Katy Mac, sadly they would both make me look massive! I'm "curvy" but need to be really careful and normally have to wear tighter fitting dressess with nothing stuck on them ie tassles, ruffeles etc.
Will look at the rest of matalan now tho forgot about them.
What dress are you looking for? will go see if you have a thread!
Katymac, thanks so much for the links, I'm going to sound ungrateful but:
The barvissimo one is a v neck one and the problem is that the top and sides of my boobs are always exposed in those sorts of dresses. It's a PITA for me!
The Chiffon one has a neckline that's too high and my boobs would melt into my tummy
The Linen one is a bit plain.
Thank you thank you thank you though and keep the links coming!
Will also try M&S and John Lewis, forgot about them!
momijigari, in theiry the warehouse one shold work, I just think it's a bit too casual? The buble dress is nice but I can't see it being very flattering. The cowl neck is not really my thing and the shantung is a bit grim. Sorry!
Sorry to be so negative! Please keep the links coming though
I have this dress which is very flattering (and pretty good quality for the price) I am a size 10 with 32 E norks and worn with a balconette bra it gives a subltle cleaveage as opposed to full on chest arse The belt is a bit distracting and makes a lovely dress look a bit tarty IMO but this isn't included anyway.
