Going to a wedding 10wks and no outfit fits

(10 Posts)

I've got a wedding on Saturday, am almost 10wks pregnant with DC2 and am already a lot bigger than my normal size 10. I have been eating loads due to nausea but mainly it's on my tummy and boobs (huge). I just tried a few dresses on and just look hideous. I've only put on 3lb but it's all on my front I can tell.

I know it's because I am pregnant and it's the last thing I should care about but we won't be telling anyone and my normal dress style is pretty fitted because I am normally slim and they all just look awful / literally can't get them over my boobs.

Any advice of what I could do? I have some smart ish navy peg leg trousers that I like and still fit but could I wear those and a top to a wedding?? I always wear a dress but just felt so uncomfortable when I put them on mainly because my boobs are so massive and making me look fat. Blimey moan over. Any ideas welcomed / links to suitable options! Would spend up to £100 but need to get it tomorrow as the wedding is on Sat.

i reckon trousers and a top would be fine- i went to a wedding last week, and someone did that, topped it off with a fascinator, and she looked really pretty swish!

If you're looking for a dress though, a 50's-ish 'fit and flare' dress might be just the job- fitted at the top, but flares out just under empire line level. I wore one to the same wedding, with a net petticoat underneath and although im not really showing yet, i don't think anyone would have noticed even if i was!

I had exactly the same problem with a wedding at 13 weeks and wanted to save announcing as it was someone else's day. It was my boobs that caused the problem too-usually quite flat so felt like they would give the game away. I found that some size 10s are bigger than others. Try monsoon or oasis. I bought a 50s style dress from Laura Ashley in the end-again came up larger than some other shops. You could also try a floaty maxi dress. They hide many sins!

Oooh some great ideas here thanks. Just need some inspiration I think, I don't have much money at the moment so wanted to avoid spending but have another wedding in 3 weeks so perhaps a maxi dress is worth the investment as it will hide sins in a few weeks too. It's annoying as I will be 12 weeks by the next one but it's 3 days before our scan so that's going to be even trickier to hide! Anyway thanks for these tips, I think maxi dress could be the answer or one of those tops which might be good for work for a few weeks too!

I don't know if it's any help but I bought an all in one trouser suit. I don't know what they are called-it's like a play suit with long legs. You can get some smart ones in debenhams. I jazzed it up with a pashmina, smart cardi and little flat sandals.

I think trousers will look lovely! Just add jewellery, accessories and a nice hair style and u will look great I am sure. I have had to start hiding clothes that make me look big already and need to get more loose ones desperately!

Maxi dress! My husband bought me one and I'm 31 weeks pregnant and looks amazing with the bump now. But a lot of people didn't believe me when I said that baby is due in October. As the dress was kind of hiding the huge bump.. I know you are only 10 weeks but if you get a maxi dress with a pattern on it, people will notice the bump as the pattern will distract them.. grin

Thanks for the tips guys. In the end went for a lovely bright blue dress from Warehouse which altho relatively fitted seems to skim the tummy rather well and minimises the boobs without drowning me! Still needed a 10 so made me feel a bit less fat and will do nicely for weddings next summer post baby (hopefull) as it's quite a loose style.
