Coco Myles is a fantastic resource for fancy dresses - prom & other formals, galas (if you're a gala-attending kind of girl), bridesmaid, and more - for many Bombshells because all of their dresses are available up to size 28. You can choose a pre-designed dress inspired by the likes of our favorite Desperate Housewives, Debra Messing, and more. Or you can choose the top and bottom of your gown, creating your own custom design. Choose the colors, choose the fabric- playing around on their site is highly addictive. (I should note that David's Bridal also has a lot of really great dresses in our sizes, and allows you to mix and match to create your own gown.)
Coco Myles has not yet released designs inspired by this year's Emmy attendees. When they do, I hope to see dresses inspired by my fashion favorites of the night:
I love the color of Mariska Hargitay's dress. The rest of the details are simple, but elegant like the draping on her shoulder. And showing a little leg via a sly slit is very old-school Bombshell.
I'm a sucker for lace-done-right. It can be a really great way to add texture to an outfit without adding bulk. The cut across Sandra Oh's shoulders shows off a pretty, long neck and perfectly combines elegance with sportiness.
Debra Messing's dress would be great for a Bombshell with an ample bust (provided she wears sufficient undergarments to support said bust) because the full, floaty bottom would balance out top-heaviness. Plus the skirt looks like a lot of fun to swish around in.
