Oh man, that dress is gorgeous!! That fabric looks like its sooooo soft and comfy.

I have the opposite problem – I bought a Holly Willoughby dress from Very (absolutely stunning) but the boob section is HUGE! There is no way I could fill it out, lol, so it’s going back. Boo.

FI is amazing at clothes shopping – I am not. We went out a few weeks ago and he convinced me to try on a pair of green jeans. He also picked out a cream top that would match and everything – tried them on and loooooooooved them!! I just do not have that same eye. Very annoying!

Super cute dress! And what a great guy! May I ask, is this store online or local to the UK? I have the same problem with clothes fitting in the top area and being huge in the rest of the areas. 🙁

I love my FI to death, but he doesn’t have the greatest taste in clothes and we have very different tastes. He’d put me in a mini skirt and lowcut top if he could lol.

My DH is great with presents! Mostly because he actually pays attention when I say I like things so he can remember to buy them later, haha. He’s also good with non-material things, though, like buying me a massage for my birthday or a night at a local hotel for a little staycation, just fun little things like that. Love your new dress, so cute!

Aww, how sweet! That dress looks great, very versatile and flattering. Can’t go wrong with a LBD (a style commandment your FI clearly respects!)

@chronicwhimsy:  ah we have a pepperberry here, I’ve tried on shirts there before and was like ‘OMG! A shirt that fits without gaping or making me look super fat!’ But it is pretty expensive (like bravissimo is) 🙁 I get that bigger bras need like ‘more engineering’or whatever but still…

I can’t see your dress photo 🙁 but good to know pepperberry is worth it!!

Lovely dress, I have the same problem in  the boob department and struggle to get anything that fits right in the chest but also gives me a waist. Although best tip I got was from a seamstress who said to never feel bad about getting a size bigger as limbered slimming in the problem area (breasticles) then just take it in at the seams with some basic stitches or if your crafty a sewing machine. And to be fair I buy 14/16s and take them in where I need it and feel comfortable and curvy WITHOUT spillage. (as a teacher that’s of HUGE importance!)

Hope this trick helps when shopping in other high street stores.
