I want something with large enough straps to hide mahoosove wide bra straps (wear a 34FF/G)

I might consider striped across but was thinking a dress where the stripes go horizontally and vertically might be a bit more flattering to my size 14/16 frame.

I've not seen anything in the shops.
Bit of a longshot.

Any help appreciated blush

Not stripy as their stripy ones have sold out but flattering I bet

Dorothy Perkins have a t-shirt style subtle striped maxi.

Not black and white, it's navy and white, but worth a try

I think Me & Em have one. I have a shorter version of the dress with stripes that kind of go diagonally. The straps do cover a bra easily.

American Apparel, I have one and it's quite generously sized.

Banana Republic have fine ones in the sale for about 35 quid.

TT- thank you for that link- but with my big ol tithes that dress will look awful (my arms aren't my best feature either grin
Cory I heart to google as I don't have a store near me.

Thank you fine ladies X

LOve the episode dress. How did i miss that one- I went to HOF as well blush

I'm a 38E with a big tum Meg, and I like it. It's more of a casual, moping around the house/school run sort of dress than a smart dress though.

The DP shops stock a tiny amount of the range, try online.

I have a colleague - she's a size 18.

She has this Dorothy Perkins maxi and it is so flattering. If I had seen it on the hanger I would have said 'no way' to her, but it looks so nice on.

Megglevache Tue 25-Jun-13 21:11:46

OMG that is gorgeous...I must have that- oh tits..out of stock. That looks gorgeous on the model.

<<looks at saggy boobs>>

Megglevache Tue 25-Jun-13 21:13:15

TT- yes I do really like it but you know when you have something in your head and it will not short- I want something quite graphic and striking- this sounds mad but something not too dissimilar to the frock that Kim Kardashian wore when she was heavily pregnant...I'm not sure I saw it online.


itstheyearzero Tue 25-Jun-13 21:16:46

That's a shame, its really lovely on. They do seem to restock quite frequently though. its also available in other colours, just have a look at the maxi dress range.

itstheyearzero Tue 25-Jun-13 21:19:49

navy and red
