What can I wear to hide 3 stone?

ok so maybe that's not going to happen sad

DP is graduating in 2 weeks so I want something nice to wear for the day but I feel massive after having dd. What type of dress/outfit should I be looking for?! I have no idea. Do I wear black? Something loose or will that look worse? Ahhhhh

Forgot to add I'm breastfeeding so need something I can feed in.

I'm not looking forward to this

A smart wrap dress would be my bet. Easy to bf in and hides the lumps and bumps. As higher heels as you can walk in too.

I find wrap dresses and heels excellent - but it will depend on your body shape, and where you're carrying the weight. Spanx or similar can hold a wobbly stomach in.

If your legs a good, a shorter, looser dress & jacket can work.

Tailored jackets are good, and you can hide the bf'ing baby under there too wink

I'm kind of still an hour glass but urr a big hourglass grinI think the main things I want to hide are arms and wobbly belly and fat face blush

Definitely a wrap dress with something to nip in the waste. Most wrap dresses are belted.

I was all poised to say Lindy Boo but they are not at all bf-friendly

Lindy BOP, I mean

Ah a wrap dress with long sleeves and possibly a jacket too then.

I've been there op - had to find a dress for my baby's christening and similarly 3 stone over and breastfeeding!
