    I posted something on here last week but didn't get much response.. have since been shopping and am still in dire need of help! It's my 18th this weekend and I need 2 dresses!

    I've seen a couple I like but will have to order from the internet as I have NO time to go shopping before saturday! I'm a size 14..lightly tanned, blonde hair. I need something quite dressy and glam/sophisticated..not really in to the tea-dress style dresses that are everywhere.

    Any ideas?! I really am struggling on finding something and that will suit me!


    1. http://www.lipsy.co.uk/Product/16851...oll_Dress.aspx
    2. http://www.lipsy.co.uk/Product/17083...ow_Dress_.aspx (not sure if this would just make me look massively wide at the top?)
    3. http://www.lipsy.co.uk/Product/16929...em_Dress_.aspx (tried it on and quite like it, doesn't do much for my small-ish boobs though and maybe a bit bland?)
    4. http://www.lipsy.co.uk/Product/16933...ck_Dress_.aspx
    5. http://www.lipsy.co.uk/Product/4971_...ey_Dress_.aspx
    6. http://www.asos.com/Kate-Hudson/Asos...&clr=Grey&sh=0 (grey or black??)
    7. http://www.asos.com/Nelly-Furtado/As...lr=Purple&sh=0 (potentially make me look huge though??)

    Are just a couple of the ones I quite like.. am very open to other suggestions though!

    any help would be much appreciated girls (and guys I guess!) - I want something to make me feel and look great! x

    I like the like 4,6 and 7 tbh but i think you would need to be very slim for 7. My overall favourite is 6.

    I like 4,5 and 7 the best. Not keen on 6 though, it doesn't look like a good fabric and ASOS aren't the best quality anyway.

    I've tried on this almost identical one from Miss Selfridge, its really nice and looks like a much better fabric:

    Theres loads of nice dresses on Miss Selfridge and Topshop, a black fitted dress would look good with the right accessories, something like this:

    Here are my suggestions which I think will suit you:

    What about this bubblegum print dress?
    This prom dress will be very flattering for your figure
    This lace print dress in my opinion will suit you

    1. tacky / cheap looking
    2. depends on your body, if you are heavier in the hips it won't be flattering, but its 2nd best. the fabric will be good for your body, toobad the neckline looks cheap
    3. horrible. this would be very very unflattering. the fabric and the bulkiness from the bottom would make you look huge
    4. provided you don't have a really fat back this is the very best one. it looks the least cheap, is a good colour, and empire waste is very flattering on a size 14 body type
    5. absolutely not. horrizontal stripes in mostly white. you woudl look like a marshmellow
    6. hideous neck. very cheap looking.
    7. only if you want to look like you like a shapeless block of a girl wearing a coloured potato sack
