I have a wedding coming up next month and I need to buy something to wear. I spent all morning trying on dresses and the only thing I found was more disgust for my body. I have been searching a few sites tonight as well and everything seems to be very fitted and short. I really want to go and I want to feel comfortable and pretty. I need help!!
I have a large bust and I carry all my weight in my stomach area. I need something that will 'hide' my fat stomach whilst not ageing me at the same time. I would like to try and move away from black also. Please throw me you're suggestions before I just give up and stay home

Dress shopping - I desperately need some help!

What size are you? Dress code? Long? knee length?
03-09-2014 21:56 #3
Sorry! That info would have been helpful to begin with! Size 14. No dress code has been stated but I would assume formal. Lengthwise, knee or just above.

is a great website where you can buy clothing according to your body type. Sorry I hope it's ok to post a link to it- I find it very helpful for finding clothing to hide my not so fantastic areas ;-)

I was on Birds nest last night and just got so overwhelmed! I got back on this morning and I do love the wrap dress. That particular one is probably a little too floral for me but I found a few other colours. I also found this one. I LOVE it! Do you think it would suit? Could I still wear a cardi?

That dress is amazing!
ETA: not sure if a cardi would fit over the sleeves? I guess it would depended on how much fabric is in the sleeves - it may bunch up?

I like that dress OP ^
I'm a similar shape. We are known as an 'apple' body shape.
An alternative is a shift style of dress. There seems to be quite a few around online and in the shops.
Avoid anything that cinches in at the waist - it really accentuates the muffin zone. Looks like the dress above cinches in under the bust, which is more flattering for our shape.
I personally think a lot of the dresses around at the moment are really tacky and awful. Seems to be a lot of cheap lacework and excessively fitted garments with lots of weird cut-outs!

It can be disheartening when nothing seems to fit. My advice is try things on you think may not suit you because you may be surprised. Myer and Target tend to have a good range of dresses at this time of year. Or Crossroads. Try again in a good frame of mind "i WILL find a dress that shows off my good points"! Everyone has good features you just have to accentuate them! Are you slimmer in the legs? Try an above-knee length dress that is flowy around the middle or a "wrap-style" to hide your bumps
Best of luck
