Hi Im looking for a nice dress for the day after the wedding that isn't short or above the knee. Short dresses don't suit me so Id like something that falls just knee lenght or a little longer. Id like something with straps or v-neck that I could wear a proper bra and something summery as Im getting married in June. Everywhere I look the dresses are all cut too short. Or else they are the type of dress that I would wear to a wedding myself as a guest. We're going to the local pub the night after so I want something dressy but not too dressy IYKWIM. Thx :wv

I thought it was just me! I'm 5' 2" and recently I've found it sooo hard to get a dress that isn't too short on me. And if it's too short on me, it must be seriously indecent on anyone of average height. I just don't understand it. If it were a winter dress that you could wear tights under, it'd be one thing, but it's so hard to find a nice summer dress that isn't too short. I resorted to getting a couple of dresses custom-made for my hen night and the day after the wedding. Although I did pick up a nice black dress by Julian McDonald in Debenhams at the weekend. It just comes to the knee. And I got a lovely one in Monsoon also.

I found one, in Monsoon, not too dressy but nice and comfy and sweet, IYKWIM. I think it will be perfect for day after wedding, especially in June. Its so easy to wear and all I need to do now is find a nice pair of shoes to go with it and the right jewellery. Im not sure how to post pics but here's the link. ... 446_m1.jpg And its also the kinda dress that wld go lovely on honeymoon.
