I'm a tall pearshaped 16/18 and will be 21wks pregnant. I've ordered a couple of possibilities from ASOS but wondered if anyone had found any nice maternity dresses online recently?

My knees are a disgrace so not too short would be great. I'm pretty lumpy so not too clingy is also key grin

Seraphine has some nice ones? I'll be watching this with interest as I have the same dilemma (28wks)

I have a lace one from asos that's really similar and not too clingy you could add a piec of ribbon above the bump.

Wow, thanks everyone!

Budget - under £150 preferably unless it's AMAZING.

I love those lace ones but worry that I'll look a bit...hefty blush

The clingy ruched ones make me similarly paranoid.

I've got 3 Tiffany Rose ones in a basket now - shall I just order loads and send back the ones that aren't right? Quite a few of the dresses are on pre-order so wouldn't arrive in time - a shame as that Sienna one is lovely, Magicmelons

I hadn't thought of Topshop or Matalan - off to have another look

Get some maternity spanx, you'll be fine. Nobody expects you to be svelte in pregnancy and because they are double lined they are quite flattering.

In case anyone's still here wink, just popping in to say I found this on ASOS which I think might be perfect with a shrug or something!

But may also have ordered a load of stuff from Matalan and Seraphine that I didn't actually needed, thanks to you lot....grin

Thanks all
