teal ponte dress

I'm mid thirties, normally size 10 but 2 weeks post baby and still with a stone to lose, wobbly belly but thought this dress might be ok as it doesn't sit flat against belly?

Needed for dinner in early January.

It's a nice dress but the way it's styled looks more like a work dress - personally I think it would need to be jazzed up for a dinner.

Not the most exciting dress but perfectly fine (and two weeks post partum I was doing well to be out of my dressing gown )

Thanks; no it definitely is not the most exciting but I'm not very exciting at the minute! I just want to blend, if that makes sense?

This may not be a relevant factor, but are you breastfeeding? It's not going to be easy to do that in that dress.

I like it. Its a good simple dress that can be styled up and down. Nice with boots and a simple pendant. I think it could look very good on. Also the colour is lovely and it looks like comfy material smile

Thanks for the opinions! At least no one is saying it's hideous, will probably wear with gold necklace and ankle boots.

Don't need boob access!

It's okay and I looked at it for myself ( am in my 50s, size 8-10) but thought it wasn't special enough for dinners etc but ok for work, everyday.
I think you could better and more youthful.

I really like it. I would wear it as a day dress but you could dress it up. It's a v flattering cut and I like the colour. Actually I might buy one too.

Add a statement necklace in opaque white and teal colours will look lovely

Or shades of teal and gold like this
