Hi, I am wondering if anyone has got any recommendations for nice party dresses that can accommodate a bump?! Doesn't necessarily need to be maternity.

I will be 25-26 weeks at Christmas time.

TIA smile

I'm in the same boat - but plus size. Next have some nice things

I've just ordered 2 from asos, both were less than £35 which I thought was good as I'm sure I'll get a few wears out of them smile

I found a really nice maxi dress on Amazon. Search for miusol.
It's long to the floor and skims over my bump nicely.
For another party I found one in Dorothy Perkins.

I've just bought this ready for my Christmas party.

Not too expensive as I begrudge spending a fortune on maternity clothes. It's nice and stretchy, so I think it would accommodate any sized bump.

I had a black knee-length tank top dress from top shop that I wore with heels an a missoni poncho for fancy occasions, but also with a jumper or cardigan and boots for work. It wasn't particularly festive, but I loved that dress.

This is lovely, looks like it would fit a 25 week bump (certainly would have on me at that stage) and I like how the zip can move so you can make the neckline more daring or not.

I got a really nice burgandy lace dress from dorthory perkins that was only around 22 quid.

And you could breastfeed in it!

I'm pretty much at the same stage as you, I'm 23 weeks now and just ordered a dead cheap wrap style midi dress off an eBay shop and it's blummin gorgeous on. I never normally wear tighter clothes but with a bump I feel better in something that shows the bump not hides it. I'll try and post a pic...

I didn't wanna spend a lot knowing I'll wear it once and not my usual style. I hope you find the perfect dress that makes you feel good smile

Not a dress S such but i ended up in one of the indian sari shops when pregnant the first time.

We were off to a xmas wedding and i wanted some colour and sparkle as all the maternity wear was bland and looked as if you wanted to blend into the background. I cant remember what theycallec it but it was trousers and a tunic top.

Asos maternity - definitely. Check out the sales section too.

Another vote for ASOS maternity. They've got loads of lovely dresses at the moment.
