So have a wedding on the Nigerian side of my family in a few weeks. I should have got mil to get me something sewn but I didn't and now it's too late! So I need to find something to wear! I need help please.

I'm 5'2" and 4 months postpartum I've managed to get down to about a 12 but with a disproportionate amount of weight on my tummy. I'm still 20lb from my best. I need something that I can feed in and generally not look like a sack of spuds. Am quite fair skinned and so generally suit jewel type colours. It needs to not be too low cut. I recently bought a nice shirt dress but until I shift a bit more weight from pregnancy it doesn't look good as just gives me a massive waist.

Please help!

My sister was a breast feeding bridesmaid at my wedding in the summer and I bought her a dress from a website called Milk and Mummy - it was really lovely (royal purple colour) and not expensive either.

What sort of budget? This isn't jewel coloured at all but linking anyway 'cause it's lovely. They'd probably have a 12 in store.

I wore this to a wedding when I was at a similar stage.
Loads of people complimented me on it, and it was really easy to feed in (I used a small cover). It was surprisingly flattering, and pretty good value. It also comes in several jewel colours.
