WHILE some may envy Elizabeth Foster's petite size six frame, finding a flattering frock always proved problematic.

After tirelessly trawling the Internet for dresses in her size, the stunning 27-year-old from Ponteland decided to take the matter in her own hands. The young entrepreneur recently launched online dress boutique, She Likes It Mini (or SLIM for short) and now has a wardrobe full to choose from!

Priced from PS49.99, the dresses are named after popular celebs. There's the 'Victoria' in homage to Mrs Beckham, the 'Rhi' named after Rihanna, and the 'Kim' as seen on reality star Kim Kardashian. …
