Have big boobs, curvy hourglass figure and a size 12ish, have bum on the big side. Can I do sequins?

I'm just not sure I can - have found a few dresses (with the help of mumsnet!) that are "my" shape. But covered in sequins.

Not sure I can carry it off TBH. Is there a rule to wearing sequins ie only rake thin people with long legs?

depends on shape of dress and of wearer imo

simple shift shape with non-revealing neck on long legged lady = yes

low cut on curvy woman = Bette Lynch

and onyl ever with opaques

You can carry off sequins, particularly with the hourglass shape, very pretty. Keep it a nice shade, with all over small sequins, may be tank style, or long sleeves, with muted tights and shoes.

You'll look knockout.

I was looking at sequin dresses myself, have narrowed it down to this, this and this.
