I don't intend to embrace the theme fully but am trying to find a nice maternity dress with a 1920s vibe.

Has anyone seen anything about recently or have any ideas where to look for something that would fit this criteria.

Many thanks ladies!

Pregnant flapper? wig, long necklace? Not sure about dress.

Hi what size are you? I have a silk beaded maternity dress which may fit the criteria. Blush pink size 8 let me know if any good

The fabric looks cheap but might it work with the right accessories

Could you go in a glam "tux" instead?

I’d look for a 1920s style long kaftan with sleeves from the high street in bigger than your usual size. Ideally with metallic detail. I’d accessorise with lots of jewellery, maybe a Jewelly Art Deco-y belt under your boobs and a turban.

Oooh are you gunna do the vampy makeup? Dark rosebud Clara bow-inspired lips, big downturned eyes with Smokey shadow and draw your brows super thin? Pin straight bob like Louise brooks or more marcel-type waves? And the little kitten heels with the ankle strap.
Oh and don’t forget maybe the headband , long gloves, fake cigarette holder, and the long pearls!
I think any kind of straight shift type dress would do as long as you did the accessories and hair/makeup. Halloween has just ended so many costume stores are selling stuff at very cheap prices.

@tanitot I'm a 12 unfortunately, thanks for the kind offer though!

@AnaWinter I absolutely love this one you suggested! www.asos.com/prd/8571090

Just not sure how the pearls etc will look with it.

Will embrace the make up and the straight bob but don't really want to go out with the gloves and headband.

I saw this dress (which isn't available) m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Top-Shop-1920s-flapper-beaded-maternity-dress-size-UK-14-Eu-42-USA-10-Gatsby-/201369217549

Something like this but cheaper would be perfect!!
