You're never going to manage to find something for me to wear.....

It's my Christmas party on Friday.
I'm pregnant and size 20 top/ 22 bottom. I've started to get a bump but I want to wear something that shows I'm pregnant rather than I've just been eating lots of mince pies. At the same time I'm not confident enough to wear body con dresses etc.
Does anyone have any ideas? I had bought a dress but I don't like it. I thought I could wear maybe maternity skinny jeans and a top? I don't know! Help would be much appreciated

purple top

blue top

Either of these tops? Both nice and quite dressy.

What dress did you buy?

I can't get the links to work magic. :-(
It's a next dress off eBay. I thought it was a light material but it's actually jersey so I'd be way to hot.

You don't say what sort of party it is - time of day,venue, etc - so it's a bit difficult to know how 'dressy' or otherwise it would be appropriate to go.

Thanks everyone and sorry for the late reply. It's a hotel with a meal and disco in the evening. Dressy but not cocktail/ball gown.
I like the purple one but worry it would be too clingy for the rest of me.
I've seen this from new look?

Depending on how big your bump is, wouldn't the belt be in just the wrong place?

How about this one? Nice, festive colour

Another red one

This one could look nice but it's not a style I've ever tried.
