I have never posted on this board before but am a frequent lurker..

Anyway, I am in a dilemma about my BIL's wedding in a few weeks, I will be 12 weeks pg, I am 8 and a bit weeks at the mo and already have a tum (is number 2!). I don't really want it to be obvious that I am pg as don't think it's fair on the bride really. Anyway, I would love an empire style maxi dress in a neutralish shade, maybe in a Grecian type style.

I am 5'9 and usually about a size 10. If anyone spots anything whilst trawling t'internet I will be super grateful. Can't find anything! Also, as ever it has to be reasonably cheapo as am saving the pennies at the mo' (isn't everyone?).

Thanks in advance!

Neutral shade sounds dull. What are your best colours?

And also, you do know that an empire line maxi will make you look as PG as possible, don't you?!

This is lovely but very green-which I like, but you may not.

Not at all what you described, but very pretty

No offence to Plumsykes but I wouldn't get a maternity dress if your only going to be 12weeks. They're invariably longer at the front to cope with a decent bump and look a tad odd without one.

None taken! I know, but it's pretty, so thought I would link!

I loved LK bennett for empire line dresses when pregnant, try ebay you get a lot posh frocks that other people have worn once for weddings.

Or new

I agree with Gracie, and particular like this, although it might be too exxy:
