    Right guys. I want to buy myself an amazing dress to wear at christmas (having just discovered that my favourite dress that i expanded out of is now in fact too big. gutted) so i need to get another one.

    i want to get a size 16 but need room for my boobs. i'm an hourglass shape and i love the 50s style flarey dresses and i wouldn't say not to a sexy maxi dress either. halter necks are out.

    i don't have a clue where to look. i want to spend under £50 as i'm skint and shouldn't be buying a dress at all... but am going to end up spending chrimbo and chrimbo parties in my black work trousers which is all that i have that currently fits...

    i also love colour, especially red. have checked out bravissimo for extra boobage room and their colours are boring and i don't like the sleeves on the only red one.

    anyone have any ideas?

    I'm not encouraging anyone to get into debt but I absolutely love my catalogue for party dresses. Best thing about it is that I can order a few, try them on at home with my accessories, then send back the ones that I don't like or don't fit :D

    god lelly.lovely as they are i don't think i want to show off quite that much thigh!! ha. love the first one though. and i don't really have shoulders. i have narrow sloping shoulders so halternecks tend to make my boobs look even bigger and the shape doesn't flatter me.

    will check out yours when i can get onto the debenhams site susan. have been trying to look on there all day. i'm guessing their sale has broken it..

    I know this is prob too late in the day but have you checked out Debenhams? And they have 25% off yest, today and tom. As you know i am at a wedding on Sat and when i shopped i just was spoilt for choice there. There were oodles of party dresses but as they reach the floor would be unsuitable as a wedding guest outfit but i drooled for ages over them all. They seemed to have any colour, shape, size etc. Oooh i hope you get something nice.
