Which dress?

I have a baptism to attend tomorrow, but have left choosing an outfit to the last minute blush not good considering I'm 33 weeks pregnant and the size of a house blush
I've narrowed it down to 3 possibles. These are the only church-appropriate outfits I have that I think I can still fit into - they all have a pretty good amount of "stretch".
Which one??

You must make a good house if those are the options! wink I personally like the red one. Enjoy the day

The one I have is the same style as the red, but it's more of a purplish-burgundy.
I do like that one, but that's the one that is more likely to be a bit of squeeze blush

I love the red one.

The black one with the see through panels is not very church appropriate (NB - my experience of churches is largely Catholic).

I think number 3 is most baptism friendly. The others look a bit sexy.

Oops Sorry, I should have said in the OP - those aren't pictures of the actual dresses I have, but they are close in style!
The Red: mine is more purplish/burgundy
The Black: pretty much the same but does not have the lace, see-through panels!! It's solid fabric all the way down.
The Maxi: more or less exactly the same.

First dress. That was the style I found most flattering when I was pregnant. No 3 has the possibility to be a bit tent like. No 2 probs not appropriate for church

PotatoBread Sat 10-Sep-16 20:08:59

Oh, didn't realise your version of the black dress doesn't have the see through panels! Still, first dress IMO

MyBreadIsEggy Sat 10-Sep-16 20:09:11

Potato yeah I'm a bit paranoid about the maxi dress looking like a tent confused

Number 3 looks lovely for a baptism. Number 1 would do as well. Not number 2 with the black lace see-through panels though!

What's your skin colour? I know that probably sounds random, but if you are quite pale, the black will make you look a bit washed out. I love the cut and shape of the dress though, more so than the other ones.

MyBreadIsEggy Sat 10-Sep-16 20:18:59

I am see-through pale, very dark brown hair.

Dress 1 or 2, see what feels comfortable tomorrow!

Cellardoor23 Sat 10-Sep-16 20:28:53

I would go with the black one. You may need to make your makeup a bit bolder though. Maybe a bright lipstick or something?

MyBreadIsEggy Sat 10-Sep-16 20:51:29

Thank you all smile I will try on the black and the red in the morning and let you know which one I decide on smile

luckiestgirl Sat 10-Sep-16 23:10:18

Oh I change my mind then. Number two should be fine if it doesn't have the sexy panels.

No 3 is the only one with a bit of extra fabric in the pleats. I think the other two might look too stretched and a bit night clubby. I'd go with no 3.

Thanks all for your input!!
Red one was more of a squeeze than I anticipated blush so didn't wear that one.
I decided on the maxi dress because it's roasting hot here today....then Dd proceeded to smear banana on it just before we left. So I wore the black one.
