    Ah I'm having a major panic. I purchased my perfect dress last night and then realised its made of silk so its gonna cling to everything. Has anyone got any solid recommendation for body shapers that don't cost loads say around the £10 mark. Also panicing because its from River Island and have read that they can be a bit small with their sizes :cry:

    M and S ones are good, although the feckers do tend to roll down a bit.

    I wore the Gok Wan ones at the weekend, they were awful! I was wearing them with the dress below.
    The pants were so tight I couldnt feel my legs, the dress was a halterneck and the weight of my boobs made it pull on my neck and I wore heels which I never do because of my height so my feet hurt. May have looked alright but was so uncomfortable!

    Awww thank you. Not sure whats going on with me at the minute, I still weigh 14 st odd but people are telling me to stop as I look thin enough! Maybe its just that photo! I've attached another in case!

    On a serious note, that dress was a sort of satin one with a silk chiffon over the top and the pull it in pants did help it stop being static and clinging. I did feel more confident wearing them I suppose. Just make sure youre not bursting when you need the loo as it takes a while to get them on and off again!!! I saw some in tescos which looked better than the ones I had.

    Ooooo I like it, it looks lovely. Would look fab with black accessories. Esp something like a black fascinator, they do some lovely little feathered ones now. There were loads of people wearing them at the wedding on Sat xx

    Well it fits still need to stay on the shakes till the party but looking at it I never thought I would get into it. Funny how we just don't see the real us in the mirror sometimes.

    Eyeontheprize, I'm sure the 16's will be fine and if not you'll be there in no time looking at how fantasically you have been doing.
