    The list is:

    *Debenhams
    *Zara
    *House of Fraser
    *John Lewis
    *TK Maxx
    *Matalan
    *Bridal shops - you can often get discounted bridesmaids dresses that are much nicer than your average prom dress but cost considerably less.

    Some people are a bit snobby about buying dresses from Monsoon because so many other people do. But I'm telling you, there's a reason for that. Their dresses are good quality, beautiful and above all, flattering. I have this one.

    I think that dress looks nice, but it's really hard to tell without seeing someone in it - at the moment I could equally well mistake it for a hanky, but perhaps that's because it's 3am and I'm probably a little tired.

    No, there's a lot of material to it and it comes to mid calf (almost ankle) length. Technically it's a wedding dress, but I wouldn't wear it as one. It has a ruched bodice which is great because it means you can be strapless without looking boobless. I'm a D cup but some strapless dresses can make me look flat as a pancake!

    Well in that case it sounds good! And on that note I will bid you goodnight. x

    Ditto with Debenhams. My last one is Pierce II Fionda from the Designers @ Debenhams section, and I'm completely in love with it. And nobody else had it

    I have that dress in black. It's gorgeous. I get loads of compliments for it when I bring it out.

    Karen Millen do absolutely stunning dresses, and they are not much more expensive than Monsoon. If you find a style of dress you like you can always try ebay if you're looking for a bargain

    It's just a gorgeous style. I might get mine dyed a different colour once I've worn it a few times to give it a new lease of life.

    I like it during the sales, when their going out tops are reduced by ridiculous amounts. I got one top reduced from £85 to £25 and another reduced from £80 to £24. You get beautiful tops for the price of normal ones, and they don't just have them left in a 6 and a 20.
