Juat that really. I had a dress, a beautiful silk one, but my boobs wont cooperate. It wasnt a proper wedding dress just an off white dress i had loved and worn once.
So now, i need a dress, im not a dress person. Would like something i could wear again, under £100. Idealy a plain solid colour, no patterns. Doesnt even have to be white. I have been searching the net with no luck.
I have broad shoulders? And a huge chest. We have decided to keep qiite about it untill we send invites out and even if people knew, i dont really have anyone to go dress shopping with. Apart from my mum.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Im sorry about the typos, i have nail extensions on atm that make it difficult to type.

Does your dress not fit any more? Can it be made to fit? New bra?

What size and shape are you?

ASOS Bridal have a nice selection around that price point, but not sure what would suit you.

Have you looked at those online design your own websites? I did this. Got it made two inches bigger all over as I was pregnant at the time then got a seamstress to alter where needed. I was really happy with mine

Sorry should have said, im going to double check but im quite certain the dress i have can not be altered to fit. I have gone up a few hundred cup sizes since breastfeeding and even after atoppi.g they are 2 very different sizes. There would be too much bra on show and boobs escaping.

Currently in a 10/12 jeans. I have a big tummy that sticks out and wobbles. Broad shoulders, size 34h. I would say i am an inverted triangle. I could try to post pictures, but not sure what would be best to wear in them.
I think my issue is i have no idea what would look good on me.

TimeForMy10thCuppa Sat 10-Mar-18 20:09:41

Thank you for the replies. OH thinks i dont need to panic but i think i do.
To add, i could loose a few inches in i put my mind to it, but not enough to look like the model's who wear these beautifull dresses online.

Suggest you get this moved to Style & Beauty for more traffic OP

To balance out your chest I think you should wear cap or 3/4 length sleeves. I'd avoid anything with a high neckline as its not flattering to the well endowed.
I recommended Quiz on here. Good bridal section but lots of other occasion wear dresses too. There clothes are well designed I think - fashionable but without being too young and silly.Prices are excellent.
My dress was £120 discounts code and TooCashBack it came in at under £100. Debenhams stock them online too had it at 20% off.

Bit over budget but noticed John Lewis had some beautiful dresses by a designer I had never heard of that were very weddingy. I'll have a look and link.

Quiz, little mistress, ASOS and lipsy have some lovely bargain bridal dresses too.

DBoo Sat 10-Mar-18 20:25:57

Sorry I can only do crappy links. The brand is Adriana pappell

You sound exactly the same shape as me. I have a one year old wedding dress you are welcome to borrow or if you wanted to I would sell.

Giraffeski Sat 10-Mar-18 20:28:55

Forgot to add, PM me if you want. I've even got a veil and hopped underskirt, I suppose it depends where you're based. I'm in Cheshire.

TimeForMy10thCuppa Sat 10-Mar-18 20:34:16

This is me. I hope you cant see my big fat face. But if you do recognise me ( like the lady who did my hair today) please dont tell anyone in rl.

smartiecake Sat 10-Mar-18 20:36:03

Have you looked on debenhams? They have a wide range of styles in the wedding dresses and quite a few are under your budget

smartiecake Sat 10-Mar-18 20:38:25

You have a fabulous figure you would look fab in most styles. Honestly you have nothing to worry about!

DBoo Sat 10-Mar-18 20:39:46

Do you need support up top? This is a nice shape for your frame but might not be supportive enough

Giraffeski that is incredibly kind of you, thank you, that dress is beautifull. However, i would feel way too dressed up in a proper wedding dress. I really want something i could wear again. Its only a small casual wedding with 10 guests. Two of which are children. I hope you are not offended, it is a beautifull dress. The neckline is exactly what i imagine would suit me.

DBoo Sat 10-Mar-18 20:42:09

This is nice too

Lindy Bop Wedding is good for large chests!

TimeForMy10thCuppa Sat 10-Mar-18 20:46:46

I panic bought these two earlier, im not even sure how i feel about them bit i like that they are not wedding dresses iykwim. I would love to be able to wear it again.

tissuesosoft Sat 10-Mar-18 20:48:40

Lots of beautiful dresses in each of those sections on the Lindy Bop link (bridesmaid etc)- if you weren’t particularly after white

DBoo Sat 10-Mar-18 20:49:50

Can only see the pink club l one and it's lovely from the back very nice.

Have you looked on little mistress? They have lots of fancy dresses that you could wear again. Dorothy Perkins do a range called 'showcase' too which is worth a look and so is Chichi.

TimeForMy10thCuppa Sat 10-Mar-18 20:52:40

smartiecake thank you, that is so nice of you. I do feel huge atm though. A colleage told me i had gained lota of weight yesterday, combined with the pasta tonight i feel huge.

Dboo i need all the support up top. I did almost buy a roll of gaffer tape. I really like the dorothy perkins one. Its very simple, not too busy. I like that. Have saved it i think to my phone.
Thank you.

Bravissimo I know they can be hit or miss but they have a blush pink maxi dress. https://www.bravissimo.com/products/heidi-maxi-dress-blush-pd736bls/

Could maybe be accessorised to look more bridal?
