    Default Graduation Dress

    I will be graduating from grad school in 3 weeks, and am just buried in

    schoolwork, so I have no time to go shopping for a dress. After years

    of taking care of children and being a student, there is nothing even

    remotely appropriate in my closet! I'm looking for suggestions of

    websites that would have stylish, but classy dresses (these pictures

    will be around for a long time!) that aren't too expensive. It's hard

    to find dresses to fit me, because I'm smaller on the top than the

    hips/belly. So, I'll probably need to order several, hope that one

    fits, and send back the rest. Free shipping would help.



    Thanks,

    Suzanne

    Instead of a dress, why not go with two separates - a skirt or trouser pants

    with even a light jacket. It sounds like that may be more beneficial to

    you as far as fit and more appropriate for months/years to come?



    Congrats on the graduation!

    I agree Chadwick's is a good source of inexpensive clothing but in the

    past I have had mixed results with them.



    will you be wearing a cap & gown? If so, then what you wear on your

    body isn't so important, since it will be covered up! Focus on some

    nice makeup, something natural looking.



    If you do need a dress, sounds like something like an A-line dress or

    other belly-hiding outfit would work.



    When I graduated from grad school, I wore the same dress I wore when I

    graduated as an undergraduate, a sleeveless 100% cotton tank dress.

    Hides any belly, went down to my ankles, didn't overheat me in the cap/

    gown, and I can dress it up or down. 20 years after graduating from

    college I still wear it!!!



    Good luck!

    Stephanie

    I have found nice things at www.target.com and also www.fashionbug.com

    I was able to order dresses from both for special occasions and target.com if they don&#39;t work you can just return to the store with packing slip.
