WIN Your Wedding Dress from Flaunt It by Fur Coat No Knickers!

Fur Coat No Knickers Flaunt It Group 16

It’s no secret that I am a Fur Coat No Knickers super fan. Laura and Emma are the purveyors of the friendliest bridal boutique in the country. No joke, these babes are some of the nicest human beings you will ever meet.

For years now they’ve been the go-to store for vintage wedding dresses, and in 2013 they expanded their range to include made to measure designs. All lovingly handmade in Britain, they wanted to be able to help every bride, whatever her shape or size. They love their vintage gowns, but with vintage sizing being stingy at the best of times, it was really hard for them to cater to anyone over a size 12.

“We love vintage dresses but by their nature they are on the small side”, they say. “Although we search for more realistic sizes, there have been occasions where we just can’t help. We hated that. So we set about designing our very own collection that would be every bit as beautiful as the dresses in our shop but available from size 8 to 22. That collection is Flaunt It.

“The designs are based on vintage dresses that we’ve found and loved over the years, with shapes that are very flattering. They are created from carefully chosen lace, tulle and silk organza which, to our eyes, don’t stand out as being too modern when hanging next to the original dresses.”

“The dresses can all be customised by taking away sleeves, adding different volumes of petticoat, coloured binding, sashes, headpieces and of course by tweaking the fit to the individual, just like we do with our vintage dresses.”

Laura and Emma have been inundated with love for their unique collection since they unleashed it on to the wedding world last year. So much so that they’ve now added six new styles to their already impressive line up.

Their new dresses, still all named after delicious cocktails, are: Swizzle Stick, Sidecar, Martini, Martini FizzBeauty Spot (an update of the original design) and Flirtini.

WIN a your wedding dress from FCNK and Flaunt It!

    I LOVE all the dresses but my favourite is Loved up closely followed by Martini Fizz then by Champagne Fizz. I’m getting married April 25th 2015 to my teenage romance (13yrs since we first got together) by a lake in a field so a short dress is both my style and practical! My favourite wedding dress of all time has always been Audrey Hepburns in Funny face and the dresses have a similar feel/look- in other words they’re the dresses of my dreams! I’m somewhere between a 10 and a 14 because I’m petite with big boobs! and I love the names because I LOVE cocktails and the night my man proposed we went to the ballet & then for champagne cocktails (maybe champagne fizz should be my no.1!) I so wish I could wear such a lovely dress!!!!

  2. Kim Jones

    We are getting married on March 21st 2015, and I would love to do it in Bellini or Gin and It! They are exactly what I’ve imagined my ideal to be; elegant, gorgeous but still injecting that 1950s cool. I’m around the size 8-10 mark and pretty short so modern style wedding dresses just don’t do it for me. This is an awesome competition so fingers crossed!! 🙂

  3. Claire Scott

    I love the Manhattan dress! We are getting married on the 17/02/2015- yes a Tuesday.. We like to be different lol.

    My dress size will hopefully change by then, I also vary in dress style so not going to state as I could be totally wrong!

    What an amazing giveaway, and such a gorgeous collection of dresses! Thanks loads x

  4. Oh gosh, how fantastic! I love vintage-style dresses – wearing lots of petticoats and swooshing around is kind of my favourite thing to do, so I couldn’t imagine anything else but a 50s style for my wedding dress. The Martini is definitely my top pick – that lace detailing practically made me swoon. Plus, it would go perfectly with the super-sparkly shoes I’m planning on purchasing…

    We’re getting married on 2nd May 2015 and I’m around a size 10 🙂

  5. MicG

    FCNK is the shop all brides dream of, the wedding dresses are amazing. My particular favourite is the Gin & It (all lace). Who would not look stunning walking down the aisle (april 2015) in that dress (size 10-12).

    🙂

  6. Roisin Lavelle

    I think the Bellini dress is beautiful. It’s my ultimate idea of vintage glamour. I’m a size 10. We are engaged for two years, but with no date set yet. We are hoping for Christmas 2015. Love the collection x

  7. Kerri Wilson

    To see a world in a grain of sand,
    And a heaven in a #FCNK dress…

    These dresses ARE heaven and an answer to my wishes!!!

    Stunning tealength dresses where the collection is fully adaptable to your (desperate) needs!?!? i.e Big boobed and short(ish)… YES PLEASE! We’ve really struggled to find a lace dress with sleeves that i can wear a supportive bra with but i have found the answer in your Martini Full Lace size 22 (hopefully size 20 or 18 by 23rd April 2016)!!!

    Fingers crossed that my Love gets to see me in one of these FCNK beauties. Either way i can’t wait to see his beautiful bearded face at the end of the aisle waiting for me. Thank you for giving us busty budget brides hope x x x

    PS I love love LOVE that you used one of my favourite bloggers for your collections’ photoshoot… Elie from Pretty Much Pennyless is awesome… my fav after Rock n Roll Bride 😉

  8. Joanne Dunthorne

    My absolute fave is Bellini – stunning! We are getting married in either 2015 or 2016 but would LOVE to wear the Bellini! 🙂

  9. With so many amazing dresses it was impossible to pick just one!So I have managed to whittle it down to 3… I get married on the 5th Sept 2015, so as of yet I haven`t even tried a single wedding dress on, I am a size 12 and still undecided if I would like a long or tea length dress? My 3 picks are…

    No1 Manhattan- I love this long dress with the beautiful lace and v back with the button detail.

    No2 Gin & It- I love this tea length dress with the full skirt, also the longer sleeves. With the delicate more see through lace around the neckline and arms.

    No3 Bellini- I also love this dress. It was really hard to choose between this and the Gin & It, I love that it is slightly more covered around the neckline but still has the lovely lace arms.

    Any of these dresses would be amazing for my vintage wedding. And look lovely with my pom pom bouquet! Sorry for writing such an essay, I am just super excited to be getting married and the possibility of winning one of you amazing dresses! xx

    I recently got engaged to my partner of 8 years who is also the father to our beautiful daughter and flower girl to be, Edie.

    I absolutely adore the Flirtini dress. It’s exactly the vintage style I’ve been looking for. The whole look is elegant, feminine and sexy which also looks fun to wear, perfect for any season too! I adore the birdcage veil but I think I would like to throw on a pair of matching cropped lace gloves to give it a more personal look! Fabulous!

  11. Hello!
    I love the dresses, in particular Bellini which I think would be fantastic for either our wedding in the Cotswolds on 1st July 2015 or our American reception party we’re doing in October 2015 for my family back in Ohio. I’m a size 14 and love the look of tea length dresses on my height. Thanks for the opportunity!

  12. Emily Darling

    These are all beautiful but it would have to be lovely longer sleeved Martini for me.

    I’m horrendously short (5 foot) and very petite 8-10 and finding the perfect wedding dress I know is going to be a very difficult task, I’m not even sure where to start! Every dress I’ve seen so far is worn by tall stick thin models, yes I know they do this on purpose but I know I’ll never look like that in one, and a train is really out of the question!

    We’ve booked a beautiful barn for August 15th 2015 and my fiancée is naturally stylish. For once I’d just like to take his breath away rather than the other way round!!

    Good luck to everyone whoever wins is so lucky to have a chance to wear any of these beautiful gowns.

    Emily

  13. Jacqui

    Wow thank you so much to Rock and Roll Bride and FCNK for this amazing competition! I absolutely adore vintage but being somewhere between a 12 and 14 have found it so hard to find a dress that would fit me for the wedding. I have drooled over FCNK dresses for ages online but our wedding budget just took a major hit as our boiler blew up and we need to fork out for a new one There was nearly a moment when I did consider whether we could do without the boiler instead but cold showers are just too horrible!!!

    I love the Bellini dress, would be perfect for our wedding which will be 18th April 2015. We’re planning an intimate London wedding in Registry office, and then going to party on a vintage London bus ride round the city we love, before going to our favourite local café in the evening. So excited and if could have the vintage style dress I’ve dreamed of it would be so wonderful!

    What an amazing competition, anyone would be lucky to win! Our wedding date is the 2nd of December 2017, myself and my childhood sweetheart will also celebrate our ten year anniversary that day. I love all the dresses, but for me my favourite is Martini Fizz, I can just imagine twirling my way around the dance floor for our first dance (which will be Alkaline Trio – Every thug needs a lady) in that beautiful layered skirt. We have a small budget for our wedding and such a stunning dress is something I realistically can only dream of. I would be happy enough to wear anything as long as I became the Mrs to his Mr but such a special gown would truly make what will be one of the best days of my life even better and I would love to see the reaction of my partner when he saw me in something absolutely spectacular. I am a dress size 12 – 14 :)xx

  15. Anna Wivell

    What beautiful and fun dresses! I love them all and would get married in any one of them, but I will present you with my difficult choice.
    Somewhere from the depths of myself (rather unexpected) I have summoned up a whole lot of love for lace. The Champagne Fizz would have to be my pick. It so delicate, amazing amounts of lace, and different to anything else I have come across. I would also love the model’s hair if that was going?!
    We are getting hitched on the 10th of Jan 2015 (maybe graced with some snow to make it extra romantic) here in London. I am about a size 12, although way more curvaceous on the bottom than the the top.
    Exciting!

  16. Katy Chessum

    I would love to win a ‘Martini’ dress, please! The skirt is perfect for me as I am petite and feel like I’m drowning in fabric when I try on princess or fishtail gowns – plus the opportunity to wear some stunning shoes and show them off is not to be missed! I absolutely love the lace sleeves – I think a dress is so chic and pretty when you have sleeves (especially helpful when you have missed a few gym sessions like I have and arms are not as toned as you’d like…!). I feel like the skirt would be beautifully ‘swishy’ and would look fab when spinning round the dance floor. I am getting married in September next year and this would be a great dress no matter what the weather as it can be styled up with a cute jacket if chilly. The style of dress is what I tend to go for in ‘real life’ and it would just be the icing on the cake to have such a pretty dress to wear when I walk down the aisle.
    Finally, it is such a wonderful change to see models actually looking *happy* when they are wearing bridal dresses! Your girls look like they are having so much fun, how could you not want a dress like the ‘Martini’ to put a smile on your face?! If I won please could I have a size 10-12. Thank you xx

  17. Samantha Thompson

    I am in love with Champagne Fizz! It is just what I’ve been looking for! Delicate, and Vintagesque. Like what Daisy would have worn if she had married Gatsby! I am an American size 14. My wedding date is set for 10/10/15, and I would love to be wearing this dress!

  18. Emma R

    Martini Fizz is the one! I’d be interested to see how this looks on plus sized brides – and whether there is a UK 24 available. Our wedding is 28 May 2015.

  19. Kay

    I must admit, I’ve been terrified of going dress shopping. I’ve been organising everything else (much to my bridesmaids annoyance!) as I really can’t see myself in a typical ‘wedding dress’..

    Well, that was until now – how have I not been told about Fur Coat No Knickers?! I love the idea of having a new dress based on vintage designs with customising options. The bonus is the sheer choice of short dresses – I thought I’d have to battle finding a short dress in a long dress world.. Plus, I will be travelling by pier train to get married at the end of Southend Pier followed by a motorcycle ride along the seafront so I need a short dress for practical reasons!

    However, these dresses are too beautiful to be called practical. My favourite has got to be the BELLINI – the feminine skirt (such a unique shape- tulip shaped?) and the contrast of the different fabrics against the flattering waist sash. That is a dress made for a real person, show off the waist and hide the tummy! I thought I’d like a dress with lace detail as well as a full skirt to twirl in – but I didn’t think the combination would be possible – especially without long lacey sleeves! I would definitely opt for no sleeves to avoid getting too sweaty on the dancefloor!

    Thank you for this competition and opening my eyes to the world of Fur Coat No Knickers wedding dresses.. now to go investigate your headpieces!

    P.S. I’m getting married on Saturday 25th July 2015 and I’m a size 12. All my fingers and toes are crossed 🙂

  20. I’m getting married on 18th July 2015 to my wonderful partner of six years. We’ve booked our wedding in a beautiful local barn. I love the style of the ‘Bellini’ dress and I think it would be perfect for me. I’ve been inspired to go for a shorter dress after looking through pictures of my late mother on her wedding day in 1960. Her dress was a very similar style to Bellini, and she looked stunning.
    It’s great to see ‘fur coat no knickers’ doing justice to these timeless designs.
    I’m a uk size 12/14. X

  21. Sarah

    Getting married on the 6th of June 2015. Absolutely love the beauty! I’ve been looking for a tea length dress or ages but never seemed to be able to find ‘the one’. That dress is it! It’s elegant and eyecatching all in one. love it

  22. Gemma

    I’m getting married on 25th July 2015 at a place that looks like Pop Larkins Farm!
    We found the venue by fate- after numerous viewings in many palatial venues, which shot our merge budget out of the water, I found this place- owned by a lovely couple who simply rent their rather large back garden/field out for weddings.
    Since then fate has not been so kind as I can’t find a dress that makes me go ‘oooooo’… But your Manhattan frock has done just that- what’s more Jim popped the question on the Brooklyn Bridge in the Shadow of Manhattan’s twinkling lights – so, for me, that’s THE ONE!
    P.S I’m a UK size 10

  23. Alex Keeler

    Oh wow, I love them all, just what I’ve been looking for! My favourite has to be Bellini. I’m getting married in March and although I know I want a shorter dress (long dresses make me feel so silly!) I’m worried about being too cold, so the sleeves are perfect, whilst adding character at the same time. The Bellini also happens to be one of my favourite cocktails!
    The date is set for 20/03/15 and I’m a UK size 8.

  24. claire o'malley

    I am loving the styles of the dresses i am having a dr who themed wedding and a traditional dress will just not do for the day. Rose wore a 50s style dress in dr who and would be fab to keep the dress tying in with the theme

    the date is 19/09/2015 and dress size 14

  25. Natasha

    Oh these are so darling, it’s been my dream since we got engaged to wear a FCNK dress. We are getting hitched March 18th 2015, I’d love to twirl down the aisle in the martini fizz dress, it’s pretty delicate lace detailing is sublime & I’m in love with the skirt with layers of tulle, I’m a size eighteen. x x

  26. ellie

    Flirtini is gorgeous. Would have been sidecar as we met at a vintage motorbike racing meeting. Getting married September 2016. Vintage themed with vintage bikes xx

  27. Marnie Moncur

    I love the bellini dress, its beautiful. All of them are lovely though and individual. The date for my wedding is 26th of March 2016 and I am a uk size 10.

  28. Kelly McCormack

    I love the bellini dress it is the perfect combination of vintage and glamour. It would be perfect for my Brighton wedding which will be happening in October this year. It would look amazing in the photographs against the backdrop of the beach and pier. I would especially like to get a picture of me wearing it whilst sitting on the carousel!! Me and my partner have been together for 15 years and have an 8 year old daughter who will be chief bridesmaid on the day. This dress would be a dream come true for me. I am a size 14.

  29. Erin Michalak

    All of these dresses are amazing! My fiance are going to be married in May of 2015. It is going to be a vintage lace theme 🙂

  30. Charlotte windsor

    Bellini is the dress for me! It’s beautiful, simple but fancy at the same time! I’m a size 10 and getting married 19th September 2015, as we have had our children already, our wedding will be all about friends and family enjoying ourselves without too much order or drama, this dress is perfect for feeling comfortable and looking fab while I enjoy the best day ever with everyone 😉

  31. Johanna Wroe

    Loved Up, without a doubt, to see me walk to my one true love, the soul mate I never believed existed. They say 3rd time lucky, I say you have to make mistakes to learn from experience.
    The date? Not yet sorted as waiting for decree absolute, so we look forward to our years together that we will seal, but definitely after 1/1/2015. I can’t be more honest than that.

    Thanks for a wonderful selection and considering us curvy birds, esp the ones who love 50s style dresses!

  32. Gary Black

    Hi,
    My fiancée would absolutely love one of your dresses for our wedding day I know she adores your styles they are all she talks about along with Rock an’ Roll Bride!!! Our day is very vintage I’m wearing tweed and although she would look drop dead gorgeous in any if your dresses I think either the Martini Fizz, or the Martini all lace would suit her personality and compliment the tweed ! She is a size 10-12 and our wedding is booked for March the 27th 2016!!! An Easter bank holiday Sunday! Thanks FCNK she deffo deserves to wear one of your dresses!!!

  33. Amy Beckett

    The dresses are absolutely stunning. I don’t know if i’d dare eat or drink throughout the day I’d be to scared to ruin it.
    I think the sidecar is for me is soo nice and a nice nod to my grandma and grandad who use to have a sidecar when they were courting until my grandad wrapped it around a tree. Getting married in July 2016 and i’m a size 12 now hopefully a size 10 soon.

  34. After waiting for gay marriage to become legal in the UK, my girlfriend of 7 years and I are delighted to being getting married on Easter Saturday 2015 (4/4/2015) We are getting married in a beautiful ‘turret like’ building on the Jurassic Coast (Lyme Regis) and are holding our reception in the very cool ‘little theatre by the sea’ Marine Theatre just next door, which is fitting as we both have a background in theatre and my fiancé is a Head of Drama at a school.

    The whole wedding is 1950s themed as we are big on the music and styling and both grew up on rockabilly as our parents are ol’ teddy boys and rock n rollers! We already have our bridesmaids dresses- they are wearing Hell Bunny Claudia dresses in blue (google them- we love them) Now comes the task of our dresses. We both are going for 1950s styles which isn’t a secret, but I would love to surprise my wife-to-be on the day with an outstanding, frankly kick-ass FLIRTINI dress from FCNK. I have been stalking your website for a few months now after hearing about you guys via our photographer-to-be ‘Asassaynation’, but haven’t got the budget to get one 🙁 What I love about the FLIRTINI dress is that it has a retro yet contemporary feel to it. I really love the lace sleeve detailing with the sweetheart neckline. The bottom banding on the dress is stunning and gives a youthful vibe (I’m 29). I just love this dress and what is difficult for us is the fact that we will both be wearing dresses (1950s in style) So we really need beautiful dresses to stand out by themselves. I think your group ‘collection’ photos show that your dresses more than hold their own!! Hopefully, my partner doesn’t read this as I want it to be a secret.

    The vision for our day is 1950s seaside- so we have an ice cream cake planned, popcorn machine at the theatre- buckets and spades, fish and chips, hook a duck and copious numbers of flamingos and palm trees dotted around etc. My shoes are going to be custom made by a lady in St Austell (google ice cream shoes to get a vague idea) and I would love to put a blue (duck egg maybe) sash on the FLIRTINI to finish it off. I would also be eyeing up one of your dandy box veils to finish it off! My final stats are:

    Dress- FLIRTINI with a box veil
    Size 18 (at the moment- I have just lost 4 1/2 stones on Slimming World and was a size 24!! Another reason for looking forward to being glam and fabulous on the day)
    Date and Venues of wedding- 4/4/2015 in Lyme Regis (Guildhall and Marine Theatre)

    Thanks for reading my entry and I shall be keeping my fingers tightly crossed.

    p.s. Lizzie (fiance) if you read this close your eyes. Well that won’t work, but know that I am doing this because I want to look dapper on the day!

    Thanks again,

    Sadie

  35. Hayley Tutton

    These dresses are all absolutely stunning. Our wedding date is 31st October 2015 (Halloween!!!)
    I love the Martini – All Lace dress, it’s so similar to the one my Nan made for her wedding day in 1959. Whilst I have the pattern she used unfortunately my sewing skills don’t nearly match up! She was also a lot more petit than I am so some mega alterations would have had to be made! I’m around a size 16.
    The Loved Up dress comes a very close second also – love that neckline!

  36. Kate

    What an amazing giveaway! I remember reading the post about Diana’s wedding and how gorgeous she looked in her dress. I’m getting married on 30th May 2015 but haven’t been into a single dress shop yet – to be honest the whole thing scares me a bit as I’m usually a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of girl and everything I’ve seen in the windows so far has been strapless (gahhh my arms!) mermaid style (gahhh my thighs!) or too big to allow a clumsy bride to go to the loo without bridesmaid assistance (gahhh my dignity!).
    As soon as we got engaged I told my fiance that we shouldn’t allocate very much of the budget to the dress – I just couldn’t imagine me on the big day stepping around daintily in several thousands of pounds’ worth of slinky designer silk – but I’m SO excited about actually getting married to him after 14 years (we met during our A Levels!) I would really love for him to see me looking a million dollars as I walk down the aisle.
    We both love everything 50s and 60s so FCNK’s retro vibes are right up our street, especially since they cater for ‘hourglass’ (ahem) size 12-14 types like me. I love the tea lengths – the Martini Fizz is just gorgeous. And yet still practical enough to allow a girl to use the bathroom on her own – hurray to that! 😉

  37. Alison Turner

    I love Champagne Fizz as I need something to cover my bingo wings and this is just elegant and gorgeous. We are getting married on Sept 27th this year.

  38. Kirsty

    I love the Loved Up dress…gorgeous shape and style. I’m getting married on 25th September this year and I’m a size 22!

  39. Dee

    I’d love to wear Champagne Fizz, the fabric is so pretty and the lace sleeves would balance out my pear shaped figure and be very flattering.
    Dress size 14, date 26th Sept 2015.x

    Amanda and I are getting married in September next year and have wasted no time sorting out venues, food and music for the big day. We have the same silly sense of humour and like to do things a bit differently so it has been a lot of fun distilling what ‘feels right’ for us when planning the wedding. It’s this feeling that that’s most important to us – we don’t really have a theme (apart from ‘nice’ and ‘us’), we are just going with our gut and with what makes us happy.

    This is why it would be fantastic if we won this competition, as I’ve never seen Amanda happier than when she returned from Fur Coat No Knickers after trying out some of your wedding dresses (she was thrilled when I proposed, but there were tears, too!).

    I love Amanda to bits and I think she’s gorgeous but she rarely feels as beautiful as I think she is – so to have her come home all excited about the Martini Fizz that she wore – how she would customise it, how well it fit her figure (currently a size 14) and how pretty it made her feel – was wonderful to behold. She told me how Laura at FCNK made her feel very special and that it was so rare that she went dress shopping and found stuff that she not only loved but really suited her too.

    Put simply, it just felt right.

    Amanda was pretty nervous about what she was going to wear for her wedding but I know she’d feel the bees knees in the Martini Fizz dress she wore, allowing her to feel like the amazing bride hiding inside who I just can’t wait to marry.

  41. Kerry Hanna

    Martini Fizz – this page popped up on my news feed a while ago and I loved that dress instantly. As it happens I am now engaged and am so looking forward to looking at dream dresses! wedding date 17 June 2016.

  42. Ali

    My favourite dresses are loved up and flirtini. My partner and I are planning to get married early next year. I’m from Australia and he is first generation british with Bangladeshi Swiss heritage so planning a wedding is almost impossible with the distance. Instead we are going to have a small affair and over the next few years travel to see our families having parties along the way. The beauty of these dresses is that for our wedding, and the preceding parties, either one would work for all occasions. The fact we met and live in the Bermondsey/London Bridge area and my dress would also be from the area, would make it just that much more special.

    I’m a size 12 to 14 depending on the day!

    Everything’s booked for our jazz inspired wedding from sining artist to a flair cocktail barman on the 4th April 2015. The only thing missing is my dress, I have had many lovely offers to come with me and try on dresses but it’s the one thing that’s giving me the hebejebes, I want to look hot n classy for my man but as I’m a size 16 I’m not so sure I can pull it off…. that is until I saw the Gin a Tonic dress, maybe I can….my finance would agree I’m definitely a Fur Coat No Knickers kinda girl!!

    I absolutely love the ‘Martini’ dress and would love to wear one of these ‘Fur Coat No Knickers’designs on our special day next year.
    After getting engaged on 27th April we are now busy planning and have booked our wedding for Saturday 5th September 2015 …EEeeeek!
    Sadly being a ‘plus size’ is pretty rubbish when it comes to buying clothes at the best of times, so alas sorting the wedding dress is way down on my list of priorities as I get excited about ‘keep the date free’ cards & vintage crockery!
    I am anxious about bridal shops where being larger is actually frowned upon, especially after the trauma of looking for bridesmaid dresses over the years when I’ve accompanied my friends getting married …. deep breath … so forget all those ‘oh doesn’t she take a lovely photo’…’such a lovely smile’…I will be heading to ‘Fur Coat no knickers’ with a brave smile on my face as I say confidently (kind-of) ‘Please can I try this on in a size 20?’ 🙂

    Wow! I’ve been coveting FCNK dresses for a while now after my photographer posted some sneak peek shots of a wedding where the bride looked so beautiful, I had to find out where the dress was from! It was exactly what I am after! Our budget is small and no matter how much I’ve rejigged things & cut back here & there, I just can’t stretch to it. I’ve trawled the wedding fayres & found nothing like these dresses.
    I love Flirtini, I have been set on a tea length dress from the beginning, I am small but curvy & I think vintage dresses look so beautiful on any shape. They’re different, classy & never look outdated. Who wants to squeeze themselves into a dress that looks like everybody else’s and that they don’t feel entirely comfortable in?! The neckline on Flirtini is beautiful too!
    I am getting married on 6th June 2015 & I’m a size 10-12. I would be absolutely thrilled to wear this dress on my special day!!
