There’s nothing like a wedding invite to send you in to a sartorial spin

by Wendy Turner

There are always a few factors to consider when you’re hunting for that perfect wedding guest dress. Personally the location and style of wedding usually dictates what I’m wearing. Now as I’ve reached my 40’s there’s another consideration – my ever evolving body shape. It has to be said things were a lot easier when I didn’t have to worry about covering my knees or that area in-between my arm-pit and chest that with the wrong bra can somewhat resemble some other part of the anatomy, known to me as ‘fanny arm’. 

I’ve been invited to a rather beautiful wedding in September. For once I’ve been organised and started my search as being a size 12, I usually find it’s the first to go. The hours on the internet have added up to days in search of that perfect dress. And hopefully one that can be dressed up or down so I can wear it again. To save you some time, I’ve sourced my favourites – from High Street to high end and finding the most flattering shapes to cover any problem areas.
