    ....between me and the dress I want to wear for a wedding on 5 Sept.

    I bought three dresses from Romans Originals and this is the one i want to wear: "Roman Originals" Floral devore dress at Roman Originals

    I started this diet at an 18/20 and am now comfortably a 16. Stupidly, when I bought them, I thought by now I'd be into a 14 and i also understood that RO dresses come up 'a bit large'.

    I have tried and tried to get into it and it certainly goes on better than it did a few weeks ago - but although I can do it up, its soooooo tight - unpleasantly so. And I have to hoick (isnt' that a great word) my boobs up so high that I look like the prow of a ship, otherwise it flattens me altogether.

    I've got a lovely cream hat to wear with it, brown patent shoes and bag, and it has a brown wrap, although if weather poor I'll use my cream pashmina instead. Such a nice outfit. And I don't think it'll fit.....where is the <stiff bodied tantrum> icon???

    so the race is on. Me vs The Dress. Tune in next week for an update on who's winning.

    Hi Liz - just CD along - and sing the "It will fit" mantra. Whatever you do, dont do what I did and buy a Trinny and Suzannah body stocking. Never, ever again. I deserved to lose 2 stone just getting into it, had an oversized head and legs by the end of the day it was so tight, and nearly ended up in Calais when I took it off (such was the elastic effect). Yours sounds a great outfit & hnot one to be ruined with inappropriate undergarments!

    Minimins are with you all the way to ROriginal success!!
