Searching for a petite formal/wedding dress I can bf in

I'm getting married in a month and am on the hunt for something to wear, but am categorically useless at shopping online.

We're having a small registry office do so I'd like something dressy but not too formal. DS feeds like a monster so will need to be able to wap them out with relative ease and decorum.

I'm 4'11, large of nork (30g), usually a size 6 but since having DS and eating all the chocolate I'm more an 8. Colouring-wise I'm pale and dark haired, so while I and Catholic DM would like white or similar pale colour I'm worried they might wash me out.

I'd really appreciate any help as I'm struggling to find something that suits and that I can feed in.

Ooh, I love a very specific dress hunt.

Rough budget?

Oh and do you want full length or not bothered?

What about this sort of thing with a cowl neck - this one looks loose enough to get your boobs out. Comes in many colours.

Lots of potentially suitable ones on the LindyBop site if you like 1950 style:

Here is the Ophelia which comes in lots of different prints. On their website they say it should work for BF.

FauxFox's white lace one is gorgeous.

Found this which also comes in red, and similarly this

this one is a nice pale-but-not-white colour and would suit your norks!

Another from the same site and another. In fact that site ( has absolutely loads of wrapover styles in different colours and prints and different skirt styles - worth taking a look.

minipie and Faux you're amazing! Going to have a look at all these now and report back. I haven't heard of half of these sites so may get lost down the rabbit hole

I love this one but it's only in a size 6. I had to return a load of Lindy Bop sale goodies I'd ordered in a 6 as the zips wouldn't close over my boobs and am still bitter.
I think I'm going to try to find a swingy wrap dress.

Lovely dress you've linked to but I don't think I'd be able to get my norks out of it sufficiently to BF - hard to tell from a pic tho.

Let us know how you get on, good luck!
