Ooh that is a lovely dress.  Is that you ? If so , please allow me  to say you look stunning  !!!!!

There was a Bee some time ago  who had a similar dress, bought from an  ordinary  department store I think and she added sleeves. She was  a beautiful  curvaceous woman too,

elderbee :  haha no that’s not me looking glam in that pic unfortunately, although I do own the same dress in red and black. I was going to get it in white for my wedding but fell in love with the Million Dollar Baby Dress by Stop Staring instead. It is another good choice price wise and also has ruching across the tummy to disguise any lumps or bumps, although it wouldn’t be as forgiving as the Monica. I’m not sure if the OP wants something that fitted though.

I second the suggestion for Lulus! I got some white dresses from there for engagement party and my rehearsal dinner, they have lots of great options and are VERY reasonably priced 🙂

 I am not sure truly how reusable some of these dresseas are regardless of ability to change weight.  Unles it is  white cotton summer casual sund ress a lot of white dresses aren’t super wearable.  Waht about a simple silk sheath or a lace suit or white silk suit. Then you can wear the lovely sya lace jacket with jeans for a more casual look, with dress slacks, a mre flowy skairt, a fitted skirt for owrk

You’re welcome! It’s super flattering on and the built in shaper is genius. I also cannot believe the variation in sizing between shops. I measured myself and started checking size charts and that helped a bit because I was a size small in one brand and an xl in another! I mean, what the heck? Lol. Good luck shopping and please don’t forget to nip back and post THE dress when you find it 🙂
