You are brave. And possibly misguided ;) But try Asos online (they also have a no hassle returns policy).

You don't need to make up stories like this.There are places that specialise in clothing for cross dressers and they are very discreet.;)

id just get her a meadowhall gift voucher theres a good chance she might not like the dress you choose her. otherwise try QUIZ, Debenhams, BHS, Select, Boohoo.com, River Island maybe New Look and Top Shop good luck!

H&M is pretty good as well as the other places people have mentioned, but check her clothes before you go so you know her size!

Depending on what/when you want it for, when I'm going out girly I like 50's style swing dresses, look on ebay. Sirens and starlets is a great ebay shop for girly dresses.

Good luck :)

If the 16 year old is like any 16 year old that I knew, they'd probably appreciate choosing the dress themselves.

Try sites like Forever 21, Asos and Missguided - they do some lovely stuff & it's not very expensive either! :)

has prom dresses from £70. used to be a wedding dress shop now more repairs and proms, im sure youll find something spectacular and cheap here.

 

best thing to do is get your pc/phone and start looking at nice dresses while with said 16 yr old...she will start saying oooooooh i like that...ooooooooh thats nice...she'll pick her fave...you have an idea of what style she likes...show the pictures to tracy and she what she has or can make!

 

good luck.

Book a personal shopper appointment for her in Debenhams. You will have a private changing room with an assistant running round for you. They supply free soft drinks, tea or coffee while you wait. You don't have to buy anything if they don't find you anything you like.

 

Its usually easier to book an appointment on line but Ive just checked and the website is down at the moment so you need to phone up.

This is a very high risk maneuver. If you don't even know where to buy it from the likelihood of picking 'correctly' is very low...

It really is a difficult task isn't it? I know the sort of stuff she likes and will look good in...she really is very girly and skinny, and I know the sorts of colours she likes...but not having kids of my own means it's not the sort of outlet I'd normally find myself in! Thanks for all the suggestions - it's great to have a starting point....watch this space for the updates!!!!!
