Wedding is evening only event, I'll be 32 weeks, huge, wonderful bump, big ole tits and currently a size 14.

In fact look at profile pics and that's me.

So anyway, need a dress.

Was thinking one of those to the floor jobs so I don't have to worry about having pale legs and flat shoes will be ok with that style (have to do flats at the mo).

Have ordered this to try on from Topshop What do you think?

Any other suggestions?

i dont think they have maternity?, but try monsoon, i got gorgeous dress for cyprus wedding last week and they have lots which are sort of cross over at front then band at waist then flowing and loose over tum and hang lovely..there wasa lovely coral/orange one and they were all half price(that one was about £40 reduced from £105

I'd worry about nork support, and indeed coverage, in the Topshop one.
Ebay? here or a long one here
Hire something?

I found shorter ones more flattering than floor-length as they proved my bump didn't extend all the way to my ankles

PinkChick Thu 26-Jul-07 13:23:35

well theres more in stores as the dress i bought isnt on site, but at least that will give you some ideas..ill see if i can find the one i was talking about....(it was in green too!)

SpawnHorcrux Thu 26-Jul-07 13:24:23

How about a maxi dress from I've bought a couple of dresses from there. Love it.

PinkChick Thu 26-Jul-07 13:25:26

nah, not there but in real life..this was beautiful.. didnt have in my size tho and was more pricy..

thomcat Thu 26-Jul-07 13:25:52

Can't see anything online in Monsoon. Don't want to pay £180 for a maxi dress cos I can't see me wearing it that much. The one I like that is int eh sale for £25 that might work with a mahhoosive bump is only in sixe 8.


PinkChick Thu 26-Jul-07 13:27:10

nah, not there but in real life..this was beautiful.. didnt have in my size tho and was more pricy..

PinkChick Thu 26-Jul-07 13:32:29

Not sure if the link will work, but I recently bought
from H&M, and it looks brilliant on, despite not being much on the hanger. Only £20, too, which is a bargain, and very comfy, stretchy material (though it is entirely synthetic, so has the potential to be a bit sweaty )

frisbyrat Thu 26-Jul-07 13:38:47

I'm not the ebay seller, by the way! I just couldn't find a picture of it on H&M online.

PinkChick Thu 26-Jul-07 13:43:55 was the one i treid but no in sale..was nice fit but not for me in end?

SpawnHorcrux Thu 26-Jul-07 13:57:25

Actually, if you take a look here you can see some of the dresses I got from there. The MN consensus was that the maxi-dresses were awful on me, BUT I kept the lilac/pink one anyway because DH said I looked gorgeous in it , and if I ever have another baby it will be a perfect pregnancy dress. It's soooo comfy and soft. However, it does make me look pg
