    Sorry, one last question.... As I said in my previous post the bra outline is really visible with the dress, are there any bra's that are good to wear under this really thin material?

    OP, if you're really not sure about the dress, then take it back. No point in having something you're not sure about when you can find something that you'll love

    Dressed Down like that?
    Yep. Leggings would be good too. Or with tights and flats and the belt over the cardigan, with a big necklace or brooch on your cardi.

    Yes. Moulded bra's. I'm not sure about their actual name, but if you see them (cheap ones in places like Primark, also in M&S) they're seamless. They sometimes have a 'shell' edge. If you go in Marks and Spencer and ask for a seamless bra to wear under silky clothing, they'll direct you to them. I've seen loads of them in there before.

    I didn't like the jeans I choose - and most others didn't too :rolleyes: Would you keep the necklace same colours (purples/blacks)? Closest to flats I have are some kitten heels from Topshop. I am quite tall so heels make me silly tall :eek3:

    Thank you! I saw this Figleaves bra which is very pretty, shame it's so expensive.

    Bra size? 34 B/C - I have been taking estrogen for quite a while now and it has been very effective. I am not that tempted by implants, been put off when they go wrong.

    Purples and blacks are good. As an alternative you could try something contrast like silver, or a statement necklace like oversized beads. I was just thinking, to dress it up, you could try something like this: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/st...t_category_rn= or this: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/st...t_category_rn= just left open, with no necklace.

    I'd go for Marks for quality, but Primark do them for £4-£6 in a rainbow of colours.

    Have you seen those blouses that are kind of see-through and you make a bow at the top and they button up? One of those open would get the same effect. You can get them pretty cheap now. http://www.peacocks.co.uk/Womenswear...-36162025.html like this, but with buttons all the way down. Dress up with nice earrings a big necklace and a little black cardi for now, if cash is short.

    I personally think it's not a very nice dress at all, I didn't even like it on the website. :\ Meh.
    If you want it to go back, then take it back.
    You could try it with a cinch belt first though?

    I do like the blouse idea, I can also then wear the blouse seperately with a skirt/trousers so double whammy!

    I am in two minds about this dress, I love the colour and shape but don't know if spend my hard earned pennies on it

    Next Dress

    I thought it would look funky with black tights.. Any comments/feedback?
    Yeh that one is a bigseller, i think they might do a short-cut version aswell. It will look good with tights also. Purple seems to be in this autumn/winter, but then again it always is this time of year lol.

    I think the dress is more suited to bigger busted women, or is that total balloney?
