Most Flattering Dress Ever!

I just wanted to share how much I love my LK Bennett Davina dress Grin

It's so flattering (I'm a size 10 all arse, no boobs) and best of all, many of the colours are on sale at the moment. I've just ordered a second one in "New Navy" (I've also got it in Magenta).

Wearing it makes me feel like a 40s/50s film star, I'd wear it all the time if I could!

My plan (haven't told DH yet) is to get one in every colour and just alternate between them Wink

It's not worth £200 though. Is only crepe

I don't really like it but think I am wrong shape plus I am so over the grecian drape thing. It looks quite basic for teh price!

I was kidding a bit. The sale helps with some of them down to £150.

Gorgeous dress, but overpriced, even in the sale.

The waist thing is fixed. Is very very flattering.

And of course you so need a flattering dress- what with you being a size 10 an' all!

Ooh noddy what is the fabric like? Is it heavy or light?

Looks lovely

It is medium weight It stretches a bit but not like lycra iygwim. Just if you needed a bit of give it would be ok. Not clingy at all.

That's quite nice, noddy, but it's mainly polyester so would make me smell like tinned vegetable soup. Hmm Grin

Noddy - I really like that dress. Do you think the navy blue would be smart enough for a wedding with heels? Do you have this? How do the sizes come up - I am a 10/12 but usually find things tight round my bust and i have a belly (apple shaped I think Hmm)

I have a wedding coming up and seeing lots of friend that I haven't seen for ages. Don't want to look frumpy!
