    Well - if you do get one Shrimpy, take your measurements and give the shop a call to check what size you need. The sizings are very strange at Vivien of Holloway (presumably because they're made to vintage patterns) - they are very flattering dresses and worth the money, esp as you don't need to wear a bra with them as they're boned and support even larger ladies well. (I always find the whole thing of finding suitable bras for strappy / halter dresses a complete bloody nightmare! - well, any bra shopping is horrendous to be honest.)

    I think I will definately get one, It will be my Target dress, LOL. :D I shall take your advice on the measuring! I love the idea of not having to go wandering around M&S accompanied by the scary old lady with the measuring tape around her neck! I absolutely HATE bra shopping, but I am being good and getting measured semi regularly!

    Enjoy the wedding and get some photos up ASAP! I know you'll look absolutely fabulous!

    I'm really looking forward to this now. I don't actually know the people at the wedding at all (lol). It's someone my o/h has spoken to regularly through work from the 'other' office (we're Cambs, they're in Southend). That means we get to have a night in a hotel (yay), plus we're going with another couple who we've know for years but they don't often come out together now as they've got children. I was best person at their wedding 10 years ago. It'll be fun spending some time with them together as I usually only get to see one of them at one time. COOLIO!!!!

    That dress is awesome and makes me very envious that I dont have a figure that would suit it. Their measurements are insane. Oh to be ickle.

    Honestly - I've seen ladies of all sizes in these dresses, and they all look fab in them.

    I love it when you can see pics of 'normal' people in clothes rather than just models (not that models aren't 'normal' - you know what I mean!!)

    I adore that dress. I wonder if they would suit my figure as i am bigger on top than bottom.

    Have a fab time and love the facebook link, I am def going to treat myself to one fo these if I can get one to fit and get to the bottom end of my target !
