Help! I've got a mammoth year of weddings to attend. I'll be ranging from 14 weeks to 8 months pregnant and don't want to spend a fortune on outfits. Luckily theyre sll completely different sets of people do im hoping to wear the same thing yo them all. Does anyone have any suggestions of what or where to buy from.
Also, I'm 5'10" so a lot of high street shops don't cater for me.
I'm 6' and went to several weddings throughout my pregnancy, without once buying a 'maternity' dress. The key is to spot suitable shapes in normal shops. I had the same tunic dress in two colours from Jaeger for the winter and last year's freezing cold 'spring', and a pleated jersey maxi dress from John Lewis for the summer, which had plenty of room for my bump.
I've got a wedding that I might be going to at 40 weeks and I've bought a Butter by Nadia dress - it's the one that can be worn in tonnes of different ways depending on how you tie it up so you would feel like you were wearing a different dress every time. They're expensive to buy new but I picked mine up on eBay and one size fits all!
Might sound naff but quiz do great maxi dresses, I had two when 8months pregnant. And for the other three weddings I just bought different dresses, not specific maternity dresses. Try tk max for dresses too x
I've got 3 to go to before I'm due and I've been looking on eBay at 2nd hand ones. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but a decent maternity dress will set you back 30 quid at least, and I've got better things to spend my money on than three dresses I will only wear once. The ones I have bought, arrived in immaculate condition, had only been worn once by the seller and set me back £5.50! win win all round
Gosh so many occasions to dress up. It didn't occur to me to buy 'nice' clothes for pregnancy as I bought a new work wardrobe so just got a few tees for weekend, but I was pregnant over Xmas - so many Xmas nights out. I got a nice black formal fancyl dress from h&m & a decent pair of maternity tights from boots, (h&m maternity tights were awful clicked & ran after a couple of washes) & just wore different accessories & shoes. I do regret that I look the same in all the photos. If you buy something , I'd go for lots of colours & patterns then you could wear a different fascinator with each outfit thus looking different
Bran I've used them- they're older stock of the high street, wash fine etc'.
They often get stretch jersey dresses, tunics and maxis in. I have 2 of the stretch 'midi' (as they call them) dresses and they've got a fair bit of stretch - if you order a size up it would probs work (indeed that is something I'm planning on doing!)
