I got mine on ebay, and I'm a size 20 Smile. Looked like a maid marion dress the first time I saw it, but I ordered it in a darker silver grey & it was so flattering. Very much a wedding dress though.

Don't know if you remember me saying, but they sent 2 dresses, so I have one sitting still wrapped if you want me to send it to try on.

OMG Sparkle!  Did they really?

You could send me a picture perhaps - I'll pm you my email address? 

I have grey hair and fair freckly complexion........ and I am SO pleased that other ladies are my size too - I feel a bit better about that I have to say.

I know that buying off ebay is a risk, and I'm not sure I'll buy from there, but I am looking because you can see so many in one place.

That Monsoon one is the only one I've really really liked though.

The first one or the second BFG?  I rather like them both - the second I think I'd wear with a purpley shrug and shoes.  Or maybe lime green.  Definitely a colour though, nothing ivory.

I like that first one brandie

but then we pull into my second handicap - not only am I fat as butter, I'm short.  Long dresses make me look very cuboid...
