I am going shopping next week for a dress for a wedding in December. I have been looking for ages and can't find one that suits me anywhere. I am relatively tall, (5ft 6), slimmish (10/12) but have quite big thighs and big calves!! Hmm sound lovely don't i! For that reason I don't want anything too short but really want to wear a dress. I can get away with just below my knee but this season all dresses seem to be mid thigh.
I have about £100 to spend and would love something that goes with some beautiful grey diamante shoes that I have.
Please help me!

Just re-read my title and just to clarify, I don't mean particularly "trendy", just young and modern!! Thankyou x

The one from Next is the best, imo.

If you have big calves, you want a dress which finishes just at your narrowest point (which on me would be just above my knee or below). However, ime, just above is more flattering with chunkier legs.

i thinki next one is nicer tha the others too. So hard shopping for other

Thankyou! I like the Next one too but have tried above the knee dresses and for some reason they look terrible on me! I love the blue Monsoon one!

i think the first monsoon one is by far the best but i appear to be channelling my inner goth atm so you may wish to discount my opinion.
