Need fashion advice

I used to consider myself quite the fashionista, but now, post pregnancy I don't have a clue how to dress my new shape.

I think I'm still a size 10, but my belly is still sticking out 18 months after the birth so none of my old clothes fit.

I have a wedding to go to in August and I think this dress would hide my bump quite nicely. Would you wear this dress to a wedding?

I'd welcome any other suggestions. I'd rather spend around the £100 mark, but I absolutely love this dress.

I'm at work so will cath up with this later.

I like it but think you will get a lot of people telling you it will make you look bigger. If you are only a size 10 then you could wear something much more fitted. Your tummy is probably no where near as bad as you think.

It will give you no shape whatsoever. I agree with pink that you could wear something a lot more fitted if you're only a 10, tummy or none.

It is nice but will make you look pregnant. I would agree with the others above - try something tailored that holds the stomach in, support underwear if needed.

Thanks for the advice. I will definitely reconsider. Maybe I should invest in some Gok wonder pants.

I use control pants and they do work wonders smile

Argghhhhh. Two people just offered me a seat on the train. Serious action is needed.
