Something like a wrap dress? This one has quite a lot of pattern, would that work? Or do you prefer something in black and white ? Have to go to do the school run, but Wallis also have some nice ones - wrap ones good for the bigger norked, and anything with a v-neck, wrap effect over the bust.

Oh I agree with jackie ,there are a few nice wraps in h&m and monsoon.Sorry can't do links...must learn.

Sorry but definitely not a wrap dress I think they look terrible on big boobs unless you are big bum too which I'm not!I had a plain black one last year and always felt like my boobs were in everyones faceI like an empire sort of shape with maybe a knot or a twist under the bust.Or a skirt and top AAAAAAAAAAAH

No worries - will have a look.

Empire line one here?

One in the sale here ?

How about this? Not party-ish enough? Or this is lovely, but may be too party-ish, and show off your norks too much for your liking - would be lovely in the petrol colour, or even in the aubergine (purple with red hair can look fab)

Some of those are lovely!Haven't been to oasis in years even though there is one near me!
