Dress I had my heart set on arrived today...and it's hideous grin(

It's just the 2 of us 'eloping' but I want to look my best. He is wearing his family tartan kilt...Im into rockabilly/vintage type dresses. I had a radical hysterectomy a couple of months ago and have a very swelly belly as well as being a plus size (20/22).

Can you spam me with some ideas please? x

Ooh, this sounds fab, congratulations!

I'm a similar dress size and I do well with dresses from Lindy Bop. You may want to have one tailored - I usually need straps shortening for example, but that's not expensive.

Any colours in mind or do you want bridal? Any shape for shoulders, neckline etc?

Where was the hideous one from? What did to look like?

Awe thank you x

Only preference I have is sleeves, either full or 3/4 length, no colour preference, would happily go with red and/or black. Knee length. I'll try dress that arrived with better shape wear and see how it looks x

There are apps and websites that allow you to upload photos of yourself to see yourself in lots of different types of wedding dresses

I went to Curves & Couture off the TV show from TLC. They were amazing!

I'm not sure where you are but they are in Essex.

The designer I ended up purchasing was called Sonsie.
