I've seen this dress on ebay for a bargainous price of £4.99 + p&p, and i really like it. I have it in mind to wear at Christmas, when i will be very heavily pregnant, and i need to make a good impression - it's the first Christmas with the almost inlaws.

Now, honest opinoins - look alright or big spotty blimp?

I like the pattern, but it's not go much shape and the material looks flimsy so it may be cold in December/ it will show every lump and bump / it will look like a rag after wearing for a short while!

Will it (the big dots) make your bump look bigger, would you mind that? With something shiny and black or silver I think it would look lovely for Xmas.

Cheap and nasty. If you buy it you will regret it. Wait until nearer the time and get something plain.

the fabric looks very thin.. you can see the manequin's arm through the sleeve

It looks like it's made of nasty cheap material, has no shape whatsoever and will make you look like a badly wrapped xmas pressie (in spotty wrapping paper!)

it looks like it should cost £4.99

Well folks, don't hold back, say what you really feel grin

I'm thinking i may leave it...

DH gave me a very wise piece of style advice when I was dithering over flowery maternity dresses:

If you wouldn't wear it when not pregnant, don't buy it

Deemented Thu 20-Aug-09 16:18:45

I had thought it might be nice with a pair pf black flares under it...

It would make a nice tea towel.

NO. it's horrible

what size are you? I got this dress when I was last pg here
I've got it in 14 which is generous

FrameyMcFrame Thu 20-Aug-09 17:00:38

If it fits you can have it for 4.99!

I actually considered that same dress a few months ago for DH's work do, but decided it couldn't possibly be any good for that price. Suspect it will be very poor quality material and cut badly.
