Wedding evening guest dress help!

I've been invited by a close friend to her evening do in April- I'll be 36 weeks pregnant and I can't seem to find a dress that doesn't look like I'll be wrapped in cling film and bursting at the seams, or ones that have a weird bow detail at the front like I'd be some sort of manatee sized gift for the happy couple!

I've looked at Asos, new look, next, H&M and can't seem to find anything!

The only stipulation is that it can't be sleeveless as my arms seem to have the majority of the pregnancy pounds!

Please help me gurus!

Different price range than where you've looked, but lots with sleeves!

And not a weird bow in sight!

Jojo maman Bebe has a few nice ones, reasonably priced.

Like both of these - but it would help if we knew your size and colouring

Sorry I've not replied- poorly wee boy has kept me busy all day!

Thank you for the links- they are lovely dresses.

I'm a size 12/14 (bump included!) with dyed red hair- I'm also of the Peely Wally Scottish colouring!

The Isabella Oliver dresses are gorgeous but I'm only planning to wear this once so sadly a little out my price range sad

I was thinking up to around £50?

I had a fab seraphine Maxi dress that made me feel tres glamorous even when I was huge!

I like this!

Oo that is pretty!

How come all the models only have the baby bump and none of the other joys of pregnancy? Double chin, black bags under the eyes etc? Or is it just me?grin

Have you tried eBay? I bought a lovely Isabella Oliver dress that was much more in my price range grin

I was planning to wear this

to a wedding at 39 weeks. Tried it on and liked it, but gave birth the day before the wedding so unfortunately it had to go back!

Eclectic I'll have a look on EBay and see what I can find.

Rocket that dress is lovely- think I'll order it and see how it looks on smile
