going out maternity dress for a shortie!

I'm only 5 foot - and due to be going to a wedding when I am nearly 8months pregnant.
Haven't had a chance to get out shopping for medical reasons.
Did try to order something from Isabella Oliver's sale last month - but it was way too big, clearly designed for someone much taller.
It was a hassle to return it so am a bit reluctant to just randomly order a load of stuff without a few pointers in the right direction!
Does anyone know of maternity wear that is good for shorties?

Thanks in advance!

I'm 5"2 and had a lovely dress from last time I was pregnant... Might be worth a look

Thanks - have spotted a shift dress on there that I really like the look of!
Also seen it in their outlet store on ebay - new. Now have to decide whether to take the risk of saving money with ebay but not being able to return if it does not fit.. or paying more so I can send it back if unsuitable!

Hi Halen

Hope you find a perfect dress - if it's the same shift dress I saw on their website then I agree it's gorgeous! (Cap sleeves with ribbon over bump?)

Came across one of your other posts yesterday - Sounds like you deserve a nice night out so I really hope the wedding goes really well and you enjoy yourself smile
