Dress from ASOS, vintage handbag
In a 1970s-style maxi dress you can look glamorous even when you’re bloated with furry legs and swollen ankles, which is great news if you’re pregnant, or just lazy and greedy with poor circulation like me.
My favourite style is cap-sleeved, V-necked and tied at the back with a wide ribbon belt, just like the one I’m modelling here. This shape accentuates your waist while skimming over your tummy and covers up your legs while letting you secretly extend them via the power of wedges.
It’s sexy in a buxom milkmaid way, which I really like because I have always wanted to play saucy wenches who make bawdy jokes while squeezing udders in rural period dramas.
