Hi, got a special evening planned at the start of June. I will be around 14 weeks so not big enough for maternity, but regular outfits maybe tight. I am a size 8/10 so happy for the dress to be short. I have already gone up to a 34e again. I have spotted a couple in phase8 anyone offer any ideas?
Sorry for offtopic, but I do not believe you're a 34 bra and size 8. Were you fitted by M&S? Seen any of the bra intervention threads here? Most people that size need a significantly smaller band and a well-fitting bra will also make your clothes look miles better.
As for dresses, at 14 weeks, if it's your first child, you can probably still wear your normal clothes. If not, anything stretchy and preferably with some ruching will fit you. Phase 8 is good for that, also LK Bennett has several options that you can also wear after the pregnancy.
Thank you I will take a look. Its my second pregnancy so I'm expecting to have a slight bump but at least I can wear the dress again afterwards. Hazle last time I was measured it was during my last pregnancy which was five years ago.... I think I will have a look at the bra threads!
