Help! Suggestions needed for a smart interview outfit while concealing pregnancy

Just that really - I have a very very important interview in 3 weeks when I will be 18 weeks, I already have a healthy 'second pregnancy' bump which I am concealing with difficulty in work with the aid of big scarves over dresses and loose tops over trousers.

Under normal circumstances I would be investing in a smart dress and jacket (e.g. from somewhere like Hobbs), but:

a. my normal fitted style won't work for obvious reasons and
b. I don't want to spend a lot on an outfit that I will only wear once and
c. I have no time to trawl shops as am working and preparing for said interview.

So ideally I would like suggestions for a smart dress, preferably structured rather than jersey, which is loose enough to conceal a bump, but which I would wear again. Or, a suit with a drapy jacket with smart trousers. I'm willing to spend say up to 200 pounds if it was something that I would genuinely wear non-pregnant. Oh and I'm 5'3'', blonde and pale, and busty! smile Help!!

If they don't know you, won't they just think you are overweight?
