Gap Maxi Dress

Has anyone bought the Gap Goddess Maxi Dress (down to £25 from £40 in the Gap "all dresses £25" Sale).
It looks fabulous on the hanger but even though i'm carrying a few extra pounds and thats being kind to myself I don't think its going to look much better when i've lost the weight, and by then I'm too late for a refund.

Has anyone else had a similar experience? Such a shame as its a brilliant bargain at that price Sad

Don't now how much help this is but I have two of their maternity maxi dresses and they're not that clingy.

I do try not to buy things for the size I "should / want to be soon" though iykwim as they hardly ever get worn.

thanks for your reply MM i'm steadily losing the weight so it won't be long now but the size i bought is the size i normally wear and looks fine on. However, for me, it clings immediately under the bust and then "flows out" so gives the idea that i'm bigger than i am - not the look i was hoping for Grin. I think buying the next size down might be pushing it!!

i think it will have to go back as i have a new mantra of "only buy it if i love it and more importantly it FITS properly" !!!
