I'd like to shop in an online shop in UK
so far I've found
www.lovehoney.co.uk/lingerie/sexy-plus-size-18/clubwear-dresses/

but not such big choice there

unless you can recommend a good shop I can walk in somewhere in London/SE

In fact Ms West herself is edgy and gorgeousgrin

Depending on your budget Kim West might well go above a 16 , definitely worth emailing her, she's lovelysmile

purple dress arrived, as predicted - not very edgy smile www.ladyvlondon.com/The-Purple-Hepburn-Dress_A1AZL3.aspx?nh=300292
but fits me and I am going to keep it as it looks good and is comfortable

I am going to look at some other dresses from Lsdy VIntage for evryday use

luckily Nehru noone's obliged to wear them unless they want to smile

Lol. These "clothes" are gopping.
That Hoover guy. And the font.

Ha ha

I go to a few 'balls' and get bored of seeing the same outfit over and over so have had a couple of attempts at fashioning something myself.

On all occassions- my own effort ended up costing more than double what I would have spent in a shop/online and was held together with glitter basically.

Unless I drastically improve my seamstress skills I am getting somebody else to do the dirty work all the way....

(Speaking of which I met a fabulous corsetier at this event last year. Some really fun and interesting vendors that I would never have found on my own. Definitely worth a weekend)

I agree about badly fitted clothes - I hate those!

my granny was a dress maker, I grew up watching her making them (never had enough patience to learn everything from her though smile ) , so I look at something and know where there's a mistake in it

making something for myself - I could try, but that is even harder than for another person ;)
esp dresses

envy MrsC

IME the fabric has very little to no stretch. Sorry.

Also- FYI- you don't NEED somebody to do up a corset for you. With a bit of practice you can do it will a full length mirror. I have it down to 20 mins to get strapped in grin

happyAvocado Fri 17-May-13 21:30:23

E would be too small for me sad
I can see that they go up to 34FF - I need H, but would need to try on - all depends how stretchy is the fabric they use

I always liked their range , but when I looked at their shop a while ago they had clothes only up to the size 14

I am sure they used to do soem victorian garments too around 2-3 years ago

happyavocado.... god only knows. It's much more fun than regular clothes shopping and pre-dd a lot of it was just my every clothes. (Can't even imagine that now!!)

I have a lot of old lip service stuff. Classic PVC. Some custom latex. Rubber...but not so much a fan.

I am a curvy girl but you really need to dress to your shape as there's so many ill fitting outfits etc that make you wince. Believe it or not I always got invited to participate in more plays when I was wearing PVC from neck to knee. Nothing on show at all. Just very clever corsetry wink

Would Merry Widow appeal? They're reasonably strict. THese go to a 38E, no idea what size you are though.

happyAvocado Fri 17-May-13 21:16:57

I know I should ge a corset too, but the thought of always having someone to do it up for me makes me very unhappy smile

I am very independent lady

MrsLettuce Fri 17-May-13 21:15:00

THat's the sort of measurement instruction that I like to see. Grand!

happyAvocado Fri 17-May-13 21:12:48

look what measure they need for that Extomorph goth costume
www.ectomorph.com/sales/order/5/153/Draped%20Neckline%20Corset

it shows that they take great care into making it right

mrscumberbatch - how many dresses do you have for going to clubs?

BinksToEnlightenment - hand made one would be best - I need to enquire to find fabrics and how much would it cost to make one

Another vouch for ectomorph dresses. I get a lot of comments on mine whenever I go out and rarely see anyone in anything similar.

A lot of places are adopting a door policy of 'no fetish by numbers' attendees. (Which is nice as it reduces the number of gawpers.)

Could you find a style you like and have it handmade?

MrsLettuce Fri 17-May-13 20:46:23

x post

That first one is amazing!

MrsLettuce Fri 17-May-13 20:45:39

Oh yes, it's great! Have you seen GetCutie by the way? Love the Red BOnsai and Cactus prints.

lovely skirt (they specialise in made to measure)
this would be great at just-under-the-knee length

I like this look:

ectomorph.com/sales/buy/5/153/latex-corset-top-ectomorph-fetish-designer-london

or this
ectomorph.com/sales/buy/2/60/

both are pricier than I had hoped - but very original
