Some of you are so good at shopping and I am hopeless with no time, 3 children following me, no style sense etc etc etc so I thought I'd ask the experts for some help. I fancy a new dress for my work Xmas party but sadly I am size 18 with very chunky legs and also a very limited budget!
So my dream is to find a nice flattering dress that will make me look acceptable, but only cost £20 to £30. Am I dreaming??!
All suggestions welcome, I'm off to playgroup now, check in later xx

Can't give actual suggestions but Mtalan and Primark do loads of stuff to 18 and beyond and are cheap as chips I believe the expression is!

I have a funny shape- top heavy. About a 14 bottom and 16 top so dresses are a night are to fit right. By far the best fit and most flattering cut iv found is from Tesco of all places! I ended up buying 5 shift dresses in different patterns and colours. So flattering. And cheap to boot m.clothingattesco.com/.../catalog.do
