Go on then - shape, size, budget? Good bits, bad bits, bits that Must Be Hidden?

Well - I have lots of clothes that I can ear. I am pg which makes it tricky.

If everyone else is going to be in dresses/smart casual then I will wear my (hopefully by then restored to its former glory) sweater dress. If everyone else is going in jeans I'll be some kind of jumper/skirt combo. My new sock boots will almost certainly be making an appearance! grin

Anyway - I'm 5'6" ish, a size 14 ish but with bump. If anyone has any way of making my boobs look smaller that'd be great.

What do you all think of this, but with knee high boots and some funky accessories to glam it up a bit?

TSD i really like that dress- reckon you would get lots of wear out of it with different

Cremolatorium Wed 22-Oct-08 19:47:33

I will be starting with this
it's what to wear over that's a problem

I have one similar that I wear for work - it's not a maternity dress but it's gathered under the bust so it works as such.

So....LBD or sweater dress?? Decisions decisions. Anyway - I'm not going to be overdressed if i wear either of them am I?
