So, I am getting married this Christmas. It's not a traditional wedding - a Registry Office ceremony followed by meal (immediate family only), followed by party for friends. I would like to get a really nice frock, though not a bridal one. The thing is, I'll be 18 weeks pregnant (which we're delighted about, to put it mildly). Anyway, that will be too early I think for a maternity dress and in any case I'd much prefer to splash out on a dress I'll get to wear again.
I guess I'll need something that goes out under boobs. But everything in the shops right now seems to go in at the waist! I don't imagine bump will be too big but I'm 10 weeks now and already can't get into a pair of jeans. Hence this rambly post. I'd be so grateful for any suggestions. Pregnancy is still a secret in RL so can't ask anyone I normally would...
Well I attended a wedding last week and discovered none of my dresses fit me. I looked online and bought one of those evening style maxi dresses which had an elasticated back. It looked lovely and rather flattering considering I look more like a moose now (I'm 32 weeks) I would recommend a maxi dress you can buy some lovely ones and they hug the chest and go floaty for your stomach. Unfortunately it just covered my ankles so it wasn't long enough for me to get away with wearing trainers
Thanks everyone. MagicMoneyTree, that is a good idea - might just try that if I get stuck. From suggestions yesterday, I ended up going on asos website and bought four dresses! Plan is to hopefully be sending back three for refund ... I went with maternity ones in the end as I really liked some of them and figure I can always get the one I go with taken in afterwards to have it as a non-maternity dress in future.
