This from Bravissimo is quite flattering and very suitable for the large of nork.

I didn't buy it - they didn't have the nork size I needed, but iirc it didn't feel hideous either.

Het has posted some really nice things. Op you sound like you have a knock out figure so I doubt you need to worry but still go for something you feel confident in. That's worth loads

Why not add a nice robe to go over a chemise? Something like this although for polyester you might want something cheaper.

Then you can slip into it as soon as you are out from the covers, and cover yourself up a bit although I'm sure your DF thinks you look lovely.

And yes, on my wedding night DH spent forever undoing my dress, I wasn't for getting into more clothes.

On my wedding night I collapsed and slept. No chance of anything happening apart from zzzzz! Was 5 months pregnant so not looking my best. After a 20 hour day you might not care what you are wearing!

No worries, Porkster. What you've identified is exactly why I was concerned about it. I just pictured all my awful parts in stark relief, when I'd intentionally bought something to cover them up!

Hetaera, that second one is gorgeous. I think that could be it. The price is right as well, considering I might have doubled gone slightly over my dress budget.

I think it's sexy as it's very simple. So what if your boobs look massive? Presumably DP has noticed this already...

Or this? Available in blue too

Floralnomad Mon 21-Jan-13 23:21:24

I don't think it was frumpy ,just a little dull. The lace one on the White company page also looked quite nice .

How about this OP?

Anything you like the look of here?
Just silk will look lovely, but slithers about when you try to sleep and your boobs will wriggle free in the night & end up in totally he wrong place
Try something either with some sort of bra/support, or something with a little stretch on atleast your boobs, such as stretch lace.

Sorry, frumpy was a bit mean.

I just think that a slip of silk with no structure could look most unflattering if you've got wobbly bits as, it would cling to them.

Maybe something with a more structured bra bit?

Maybe something like this is better:

Definitely sexier. Just sadly sold out in my size.

I had this. He liked it, it was adequately comfy.

Bumping. Haven't spotted anything yet but am also getting married soon and am the same bra size as you so know how awkward that is in a nightwear sense grin.

Shall have a good scout round the net now.

CabbageLeaves Mon 21-Jan-13 23:08:07

I think it's classy. You wear what makes you feel good

Amaxapax Mon 21-Jan-13 23:05:31

Oh, he has seen me naked! That ship sailed several years ago. But I tend to avoid it as much as possible because I feel quite self conscious. I struggle to change in front of him and I worry he'll be repulsed by my stomach and thighs. I must stress that these are entirely my hang ups. He would be very pleased with a greater amount of nudity, but I can't get there mentally.

Frumpy is not good for a wedding night.

Porkster Mon 21-Jan-13 22:58:28

I think it's quite frumpy, sorry.

But I have no good advice as I always sleep in the noddy.

Well I think that's a lovely nightie. I'm a flannel PJs sort of girl, but only cos I feel the cold. What I would say is 'forget your worries about your body'! Has soon to be DH SEEN you naked? Because if so, he'll be quite happy with what you look like - he knows what he's getting. And if not - then you are the only naked lady in that room and he'll be far too pleased that you are there to be 'comparing' you with anyone else mentally. Please don't worry about your chest/less than ideal bits. Being confident in your skin is far, far sexier than anything else, believe me.

Amaxapax Mon 21-Jan-13 22:50:20

I am not a naked person, so 'nothing' is not an option.

I usually wear flannel pyjama bottoms and a t-shirt, but I recognise flannel is not the sexiest of fabrics and my nearly husband has indicated he'd like to see me in something special.

I considered this:
www.thewhitecompany.com/sale/clothing/silk-short-nightie--alabaster/

I would have bought in silver. But I chickened out because I worried that the silk would highlight all of my less than ideal bits, of which there are many, and now it's sold out. However, I do like the idea of it and a lovely, tactile fabric like silk would be appealing.

I am 5'9", size 12-14 and wear a 32F bra, so I'm especially concerned about my chest looking unwieldy. However, I do intend to sleep in this, so it needs to be comfortable and relatively unstructured. I'm not looking for risqué lingerie with suspenders and whatnot.

Any thoughts on where I could find something like this? I am really not a sexy person, so the world of slinky nightwear is foreign to me!
