I'm 6 months pregnant and have 3 posh do's in the next 6 weeks - a work's black tie do, plus two weddings (one church, one hotel). I'd like to get a dress that will work for all three, but struggling to find the right thing at the moment. Please <begging emoticon> can you recommend any great dresses? Thank you!
I'm a size 12, 5'5, mousy brown hair, average kind of girl - but I don't like wearing black, so these are all gorgeous colours. I'm getting quite cross with all the black maternity clothes, so these links are fab.
bump to see if anyone can recommend any other retailers - so far have looked on Blooming Marvellous Formes Crave Tiffany Rose Seraphine Bumps Isabella Oliver and seen some I like, but wondering if I've missed anything. Thanks
When I was pregnant I had the same dilemma and got a sleeveless black knee length dress from Next (bit baby doll). I wore it with bright pink pashmina, hat, jewellrey & bag to brighten it up for the wedding and silver shoes, sparkly bag and shoes for the work party. Next don't have the same dress this year but someone must have something similar - if the dress is cheap and you buy accessories you can use post pregnancy or ones you already have even better!
I thought Formes was ok, if rather pricey, but at 8.5 months with DS2 I had to go to Buckingham Palace to see the Queen (DH got a gong!) and then I had a panic. I got a brilliant dress from Isabella Oliver which was really smart (and went well with a hat I'd worn to brother's wedding years ago). Wish I could get more stuff from her, but unlikely seeing as I'm unlikely to be pregnant again. Dress was purple wraparound which I wore to a couple of parties...could easily have been worn to work etc. Like others have said, depends on how you accessorise!
