What to wear for court?

I usually attend court for work and have generally got by with black trousers and shirts/ dressy tops. However I'm now 31 weeks pregnant and cannot for the life of me find shirts that are suitable (fit round belly and shoulders, it's one or the other!)

Any suggestions? Pics would be great!

I like my legs but would wear tights/boots combo if wearing a dress. TIA

I was working in the City when pg admittedly 20+ years ago. Sadly I found one had to pay. Is a shop called Formed still about. Friends and I passed the formal stuff around over a give year period. Back then women over 5'7" didn't appear to be capable of fertility either --unless they had £££ to spend.

I've never heard of that! All the maternity wear around here seems to be really grumpy sad

Isabella Oliver stuff is really nice. It's quite expensive but I managed to get some bits second hand. It lasts well.

Jojo usually have some nice smart dresses and they're not too spendy

I’m a lawyer so in court frequently and also 23 weeks pregnant so just into maternity work clothes. My best buy has been a black Seraphine wrap dress, I’ve got a JoJo one too and a couple from Next. I’ve also got a stretchy black tube pencil skirt from M&S which I pair with a shell style top no buttons though! I do wear a gown in court though which I adore as it hides a multitude of sins and a growing bump!
