I neeeeed one for a christening I am going to, and am 11 weeks pg, so it needs to be relatively roomy, but not tent like. Has anyone seen anything lovely. Not worried about colour or anything like that, I am quite versatile wink

I am nearly 26 weeks pregnant and have decided to spend the next 14 weeks in maxis. following the success of the 2 American Vintage ones I bought.

so hit me with some options too please. Just for ordinary daywear, nowt special.

I like them but they look awful on me even though I am tallish and slimmish but I do have boobs so they tend to look matronly.

The strapless one is pretty.

However, I would be worried that I would tread on the hem and reveal norkage in a rather dramatic fashion blush.

Any plain-ish ones out there rather than patterned? Am thinking the same style as the strapless except.....with straps

There was a lovely one in Hobbs in a heavy weight jersey in dark blue (not as dark as navy). I tried it on in Westfield shopping centre. Wasn't gathered at all so wouldn't add bulk. Sleeveless, lovely keyhole detail on the back (but didn't show bra) Looked fab with wedges.

A hippy one in Mango atm, not for a wedding, though.
