    Help me find a dress!

    Advertisements
    Prince Charming's brother is getting married in February and I'm tagging along.

    - It is in Florida. (so I don't need to worry about being cold.)
    - I will be meeting his parents/family for the first time. (so nothing super scandalous.)
    - I am top heavy (32F) and would prefer something that's not strapless.
    - I have gained weight in the stomach/hips that I am pretty self-conscious about and would like to conceal that as much as possible. (nothing form fitting.)

    I don't know much about the wedding/dress code, but Prince Charming was fitted for his tux today. I've assumed I should wear a cocktail dress.

    I would prefer to keep it under $75 since there will be some hefty travel expenses incurred.

    I am very pale complected and look best in greens, blues, and some purples. I can do the occasional blue-based reds/pinks.

    I would love some help looking! Thanks, ladies!

    How do you feel about a little black dress? Or do you want color?

    I would prefer something with color. I feel super washed out in black.

    ooooh this thread is RIGHT up my alley. I LOVE this dress. I just got it in! They shipped super fast. I ordered 1 size bigger then I usually am and it fits me great. I think it's really feminine, flattering, and is for sure family appropriate!

    I wasn't sure how high of a neckline you wanted with meeting his parents. I am "top heavy" and I get self-conscious when meeting new people, so I went for higher necklines. Let me know if that is too high...

    Grecian One-Shoulder Beaded Bridesmaid Dress : sale : women : jcpenney

    Chiffon V-Neck Bridesmaid Dress w/Rosette Waist : sale : women : jcpenney

    Danny & Nicole Taffeta Rose Detail Dress : sale : women : jcpenney

    Some of my favorite dresses thus far that I want to show you are only available in black, but I am trying to avoid that because I don't want to tempt you with a style you can't have.

    Did you order one size up from your American size? Or what the equivalent UK size would be? (I think there's a two size difference usually. US 4 = UK 8. Just trying to figure out if it runs big or small. )

    I love that first one! I wish it wasn't so expensive.

    The neckline of the first one is perfect, and I really like that second dress, minus the embellishments! I'm not a big jewels/flowers/decorations person. I might go see if I can find that one in-store and see how it looks on, though. Thank you!
