Pregnant Cinderella!?

(8 Posts)

I'm currently 26wks pregnant and at the end of next month have a charity ball to go to!!

It's a black tie event to raise money for Action Medical Research and I need to find a flattering ball gown/evening dress to go in!

Has anyone got any recommendations on where I can find one!?

I'd want to try it on before hand and won't be buying until closer to the event (I don't know how big I'll be!?) I don't want to spend LOADS of money either!

So somewhere where I can try it, not to expensive and also flatters my bump...

Tiffany Rose? I know they specialise in maternity occasion dresses. There is an section on their website where there are lots of pretty dresses on sale. Also, ASOS has maternity dresses which are affordable and cool. Have fun at your event!

I'm not a mum but I'm always planning my maternity wardrobe blushgrin

Oh no, I've recommended online shops. So sorry OP. Hope someone else comes along soon blush

I really struggled to find anywhere to shop for this sort of thing in person when I was pregnant. I ended up buying loads online and having a little trying on session at home.

The only thing I might try is if you make a personal shopper appointment and tell them you are looking for maternity, evening gowns they would be able to have it there for you to try.

I second what Rock suggests
Order loads online and try on in the comfort of your own home, delivery is often free as is returns. For something like this you could spent hours shopping
I do this for most things now as often stores don't have the size you want in store and they have to order it anyway

Forgot to say this company often has some gems and have a small maternity section

I would buy a few off asos and return the ones I don't like (free delivery and returns)
