    Sorry if you've read this in the SW teams but thought I'd get more advice here;

    H & I are going out (just the 2 of us) next Saturday night to a comedy club. It's been over a year since we've been out & my friend is having my son & the baby overnight so we don't have to rush home.

    I'm really in the mood for dressing up (been so long) so please advise which do you think I should go for. I'm a size 18 (sometimes 16 but very rare lol) I'm pear shape, I've big boobies (38E) smallish waist then my hips/thighs are bigger if you see what I mean.

    So I was going to go for either this, with black trousers or jeans:

    Clothing at Tesco | F&F Border print tunic > long sleeve tops > New In - Womens > featured products

    Or this dress with black tights/leggings with knee high boots

    Clothing at Tesco | F&F Tea Dress > casual dresses > New In - Womens > featured products

    I've a thick black belt so might wear that around the waist of them to show off my smallish (lol) waist.

    What do you think?

    I think the second one but without the belt as it has a tie that should show off your waist and is more dressy with the boots if going glam

    Hope you have a fantastic time!

    I prefer the first one, but it depends on your colouring to some degree.

    Ok sorted - if I copy and paste into the browser I can see them :) I prefer the second one but again without the belt - think it would look a bit too much with that pattern

    I love the purple in the first one.
    You could wear a reallllly thin black belt with it and show off your waist but I think itd do it without the belt.

    Def the purple one. Gorgeous colours, and great kneckline. Also it has long sleeves so no sodding about wondering if you need a cardie over it.
    I think you should treat yourself to some silver and purple accessories as well. Lovely.

    Have a great time xx

    The first one for me, I think the shape would fit better & the neckline would show off your bust:rolleyes:; I think the 2nd is too long to wear with trousers & would make you look big.

    The first seems to hang better than the 2nd.

    Could you go to tescos, try them on, take a photo & post:D then go back to buy which WE like, lol

    personally.... urgh!!! to both of them... but then again I'm a bloke and have no "vision" for what something would look like on and accessorised or dressed up with other pieces of clothing over / under it..

    whichever you choose, do us a pic of you in the full getup so we can see how it turned out..

    I think it's the patterns I'm not keen on because I like the look of the plain purple one that comes up on the "also bought" side panel when you click on the first one..

    I think the first one. From the picture I think it would flatter your chest and skim down your body nicely. I also like the colour

    The dress will suit your shape much better show off your waist and those lovely legs whilst not accentuating your curvy hips! x
