Strapless wonder...

I found some pics from my holiday with a couple of outfits I forgot to blog. There was never going to be anything startling because when I go abroad I pack for comfort and coolness. I think most importantly for me though, was this strapless dress I bought from George at Asda. 



Firstly, please for give the ropey pics. On the first one above my belt had gone all saggy and I hadn't realised until after dinner so we took some more round the pool in which I appear to have sunburn, but I didn't burn, so that's weird! Must have been the lighting! Anyway... back to the dress   


So, yes it's nothing special, but I just wanted to blog it to reiterate the point of - try things on and don't trust the size label! 

This dress is from the G21 range, which sadly only goes up to a 20, but, find the right cut and fabric and you can make an item that is 1-2 sizes too small, work for you. 

Depending on how tight you like and/or are comfortable wearing, I would say this would stretch to a 26. It had bags, and I mean bags of room on my 22/24 body. So please, don't be blinkered in your shopping options. Shop around, try things on that aren't necessarily your size and don't be afraid to go into shops that only stock smaller sizes. You might discover a little gem!!
