    I'm 38", 30", 39"... working on making them all a bit smaller lol. But I can't decide if this suits my shape/size or not. Opinions?

    Oh and please excuse the white bra... I wouldn't be wearing that with this dress normally.

    I personally don't really like it, but that may be something to do with it being a similar colour to my old school uniform. But it doesn't look like it doesn't fit you or anything, it sits nicely and I quite like the lace. I just don't like dark green lol. Maybe wear higher heels, but again that might be my own personal vendetta against kitten heels.

    It's actually black/grey... The walls are green which is giving it the tint.

    And as for the heels, I do actually agree with you. But I'm so out of practice on my proper heels that it just isn't worth it. They're better than flats and the only possibility if I want to dance all night.

    it's a bit 'meh'.

    I mean, it's alright but it isn't really anything special.

    Y'know, what with me being an expert in female fashion. :awesome:

    I don't think it suits you as well. The colour is

    Not something I would wear. I prefer clubbing clothes to fit more closely to the body (i.e. snug, not tight) - Maybe a thicker belt would do the trick?

    I actually bought it a year ago and haven't worn it (impulse buy ).

    I do have other dresses to wear. It's just that I wore most of them recently. To be honest I could do with something new but I've left it a bit late now.

    It's not a club, it's a party at a sports/social club. And I had been considering a bigger belt. Just the belt is sewn into the dress so I'd need one thatsat over the top without showing the other one below.

    It looks quite formal. It wouldn't work for a house party for example, but if it's quite formal, you say it's at a social club, that sounds quite formal, perhaps it'd work.

    I quite like the lace. I think the problem is there's not really much colour in there at all. It's all greys and black. Perhaps if you had some red heels, or I dunno perhaps red lipstick would offer enough colour. I'm no expert obviously, but, do you get what I'm saying? Some coloured heels, perhaps a coloured belt, may look better than more black.

    I'm not keen on it; it makes you look a little top heavy. I think you should find something a little more flattering for your figure.

    Depends on what type of party you are going to. Also try and brighten it up/accessorise it a bit with a purse/handbag or some jewellery

    :zomg: If they are your idea of kitten heels, I hate to think what you would call my heels which are definitely lower than those..!

    WIth your proportions you should be wearing a fit and flare dress to pinch in the waist and give the appearance of smaller legs, but also emphasise the chest to give an hourglass look

    Haha, maybe it's just the picture. I don't wear very high heels either my friends laugh at me trying to walk . I tried looking on new look to show you my heels I bought a while ago but they're not there. I don't even have a ruler to see how high they are :cry2:


    p.s love your sig

    I think I'd pair it with a black cardigan, because it's fairly short. But then, I don't usually do both bare arms and bare legs, I tend to go for one or the other.

    I like it! I am the same size as you and I find it a pain to find dresses to suit me (I don't like bodycon dresses etc on me). The colour is slimming even though its not bright and out there. The only thing I would change is the shoes - go bigger and make them a great feature and make your legs longer. With your hair and make up done you'll look fab!

    I would say wear a different dress as don't think that dress really compliments your figure

    I think it looks nice! It is quite formal, like others said, but it seems to suit your purpose. A little cardi would look nice. You could spice it up with your hair/make-up/accessories. I think it'd look nice if you loosely curled your hair and had some neutral but sparkly eyeshadow going on?
