need a dress for my niece's wedding in a months time.
I am about 170cm, size 14, 85kg. I am quite large busted - 14E.
I want something non black, vneck or scoop neck to play down the bust, maybe knee length or just above. I do have a waist, but also a mummy tummy. My legs are passable. I don't mind sleeveless, but would prefer maybe a cap sleeve or something - my arms are not too bad, but more muscular than most.
No loud patterns or really bright colours - as I know all my sisters are wearing dark colours. Unfortunately for me they are all about a size 8, and have several inches in height on me, and are quite a bit younger. I do quite like lace and floral patterns, but usually not abstract..
My colouring is quite fair skin, blue/green eyes, light brown hair.
So to sum up I want something to make me look slimmer, taller and younger - not so impossible? Throw me your suggestions please.

I saw these the other day.
Also this http://www.birdsnest.com.au/brands/ping-po...-jersey-dress-1
poppy maybe too bright, but the blue looked nice and I love jersey
This for lace - not sure about the boob or colour factor though

Are you near a Myer?
They have such a massive range of dresses.. I got one for a wedding from Basque. And it was under $100.

I am a simailar bild to you (a bit shorter). I buy a lot of clothes here Pepperberry
what about this
It is quite dressy, but I have this dress in blue and it is very flattering (on forgiving on my tummy.
You should also look at Birdsnest , in particular the brands Maiocchi, Elise and Retrospec'd
Hope that gives you some ideas

totally recomened Leona Edmiston. I got one of hers very similar to this https://leonaedmiston.com/online_store/view...9/maddison_d772
after someone on here reccomended it for a wedding. It is lovely and was lovely to wear. Her sizing is a bit weird, my dimentions are not disimilar to yours OP and I was a size 2 (!) anyway. I love the dress.

I really like all the suggestions. Someone asked about budget - probably $200, as I may have to buy shoes.
Wedding is formal - do you think those Leona Edmiston wrap dresses would fit that dress code? - I do have one hanging in my wardrobe!

Have you looked at the Asos Bodycon dresses?
There's a couple there that are quite nice that would fit your bill.

If you have a Jacqui E store nearby go in and have a look at their dresses.
I have recently bought 4 from that store and they are gorgeous.
This is my most recent purchase
I dressed it up with a gold belt and high shiny gold shoes.
I walked past my local store yesterday and they have some very lovely print dresses in that I will have to go back and have a look at.
Jacqui E are fairly accurate with sizing. I'm a size 12 and about the same height as you and I find their dresses sit at the knee.
Hope that helps.
