Final dress chosen... help me out.

Okay, this is the problem I have. Since I have lost over 100 lbs. I have saggy skin in some areas. In this dress, it shows under my arms and in my armpits. It also shows at the top of my knees from thigh skin hanging loose.

I want to hide all that. I will need some sort of cover up or jacket and some hose/tights to help hold everything in as tight as possible.

What colors of cover up/jacket, hose/tights, and shoes should I choose? I am thinking I need some silver in there, but I could do that with jewelry and a handbag if needed. Our "date" is tomorrow, so it can't be anything I have to order.

The dress is navy blue.

Oh, and I need to find a strapless bra or one with clear straps big enough for my boobs.

Thanks. Hopefully, someone will tell me what to do because I have no clue.

Sheer hose, dove gray pashmina, gray/silver shoe.  BAM!  Do it.

 I'd go with yellow. Like a bright yellow for the jacket, and some nude tights with some yellow pumps.

Oh!  Bra: can you sew a few stiches?  Nothing fancy.  I can help you out if you can do a simple stitches.

You need a better bra...it will help under the arms and will push up the tatas giving you a better silhouette.

If you go strapless find a bra that is a cup size bigger than you are.

Next get some magic under wear at Wal-Mart. I get the light support ones.  I wouldn't worry about your legs, they look great!
