    I'm about a size 22 and short! I have to go to an 80's fancy dress hen night in sept.

    Anyone got any ideas on what I can wear??

    Big girls look ridiculous in fancy dress costumes and I dont want to look silly!! (unless that is my intention of course lol)

    I know how you feel Mel. I'm off to Flashback to the 80's at Clumber Park in 3 weeks time & was looking at fancy dress but decided against it cos even though I've lost weight & inches I'm still a size 20 at the moment & can't find owt to fit.

    You could do Dexys Midnight Runners - denim dungarees, plimsols, vest top & head scarf???

    I think a nice baggy top, leggings and tutu like Sparkles said sounds good and retro lol :) Maybe you could go on Ebay, type in 1980 and your size and see what comes up :)

    That's a really good point!

    And there is always the easiest costume in the world to fall back on, albeit not the most feminine... Ghostbusters!!

    Amethyst Witch put pictures to what I was thinking! Just go neon, tutu and loads of jewellery, backcomb your hair and put on some bright red lippy and you'll totally look the part! xx

    Thanks for all the great ideas! I got myself on eBay and found an outfit which consisted of a dress, jacket and gloves for 25 quid. It is a madonnas fancy dress thing. I was sceptical as it was a 20-22 and very shirt, but it's cool with a pair of leggings and is longer at the back. I have ordered a White blinds wig and black wayfarer sunglasses (as I'm brunette I can wait to see what it looks like to be blonde). So now I'm sorted I'm really excited.

    My sister saw the outfit and wasn't keen, but once I put it on she really like it, said it really suited my body shape!! Bring on the red Lilly and White stillettos
