Im meeting my boyfriends parents this weekend, staying over his house etc, just wondering what to wear because im really stuck! Im a size 12/14, big-ish boobs, and I generally shop in places like river island etc :) if someone could give me an idea or even pick an outfit for me it would be great :D
I was planning on wearing jeans/flat shoes :)

    I'd go for jeans, flatties (more along the ballet pump line than the trainer line), and simple top and a really nice scarf, with some lovely understated jewellery. I'm pretty big in the chest too and I find that I look better if I actually show a little flesh in a v or scoop neck t-shirt rather than trying to cover up - draws less attention to the area, especially with a great scarf or necklace to distract.

    Basically aim for flattering but demure - don't suck your personality out, but maybe tone it down a notch. If you're there for the whole weekend, a pair of jeans and a couple of nice t-shirts will see you through and look fresh and simple. And mothers seem to like practical shoes, for some reason.

    Enjoy :)

    I would take something nice to wear as well just in case you end up going out somewhere nice for dinner and anyway its always nice to dress up a bit.

    Depends what you feel comfortable in!

    Personally I would go for Jeans, nice top and small heeled boots

    Or Casual dress, Leggings/tights and boots
