    I was looking for a floral print (short) evening dress and I wanted a really specific type of one. I want a floral print with a sweetheart neckline and a tulip shaped dress.

    The sweetheart neckline isn't a must (the dress can be strapless/strappy with any neckline, I'm not fussy) but I really want a tulip dress because it suits my body shape the most.

    I've looked in a few places but I'm not sure I'm looking at the right places and I'd prefer it not to be on an online store but if that's the only place I can find it, then a link would be brilliant, thanks.

    Budget : £50-ish but nothing ridiculous like £100 or anything.

    Just as a guide shape, the floral dress I have in mind looks like this but with a floral print where I'm not fussy about the straps.


    Any other suggestions are welcome because I know that this is quite a specific type of dress I've asked for

    Erm, Primark is a bit iffy for me because they do have nice stuff but I find they don't last very long. Also, I kind of want to recycle this dress over and over again at university formal events and stuff.
    Edit: Love your sig btw

    Fair enough I work for Primark. The clothes are only designed to last a season - so 3 months.

    I always go to Republic for dresses, they have some floral ones in. Not sure about the shape though.
    P.S. Ty

    I looked at Dorothy Perkins and there were actually quite a few tulip style dresses that I liked One issue though is that a lot of the ones I liked had a high neckline and I have a larger chest than normal so the high neckline would just unbalance me boobs-wise.

    I suggest trying them on, I have a large chest myself and there are some really nice square knecklines that are really quite flattering as they have the belt encorporated into the dress style.

    I got a really nice floral dress there last summer and was quite impressed as normally I find it difficult to find dresses that fit in my chest area, as normally I have to go up a size but then their too baggy every where else, but i find those dresses generally have quite a, shall we say, generous amount of fabric in the boob area

    Have you tried looking at a department store website like Debenhams? They emailed me this morning to tell me they have a 50% sale off at the moment too! I'm presuming thats just certain items though

    I have that same problem accomodating for my chest. The only reason why I was keen on a sweetheart neckline was that it makes your shoulders look smaller apparently? :confused: Not sure about that because I usually avoid sweetheart necklines because of my broad shoulders. But I'll try and see if square necklines do me any good. I might try some of the higher necklines as well even though I know it will make my boobs look massive. :nothing: The dress is for my school's formal (not as dressy as prom) so I kind of want to look grown up and kind of summery for the formal.

    I looked online on Debenhams yesterday but I'm gonna look again this weekend. I might try House of Fraser as well actually now that you've mentioned it but department stores tend to be iffy with their collections some times.

    Both are really gorgeous but these are really pretty day dresses! I was looking for an evening dress. Also, I want very light colours that are sort of summery. Sorry, I know I'm being really fussy haha

    Oooh this is really pretty!
    I think it's the closest thing to the kind of print I had in mind.

    Ohhhh I seeeee. Prom Dress got it!

    yeah be careful with sweetheart necklines, especially when ordering online, i often find they hardly work at all or reallllllly accentuate your boobs so i personally feel really uncomfortable with that much on show but look great on some people!

    I'm not sure about florals but i find FCUK sometimes is good, their dresses are quite tight so it doesn't matter if you go a few sizes bigger for fabric around the chest area...
