Hi - would really appreciate some help. Am pg and have 5 weddings this summer so would like at least one nice dress so I don't feel like a sack of potatoes at them. I really like this, but am worried it will be too low cut as I am a 34 G at the start of this pregnancy . Will there just be too much boob on show?

Otherwise I am size 14, 5'7" very curvy, tend to suit empire line or princess line dresses. I had a b-i-g bump last time and am already showing early in this pregnancy so will probably have another huge bump.

Yes I think will highlight big boobs

Can you find something with a V neck, one colour, more empire line, maybe in a nice heavy jersey?

Mmmmm not sure! I like the skirt part a lot - elegant and floaty - but wonder if you would end up constantly making sure the top part was in place and not revealing too much boobage - especially for the photos.

Its a nice dress, but it looks like the sort that would show a lot of cleavage.
I'm guessing they have a returns policy if you buy it and its just too much?

Thanks - yes i think it will be too low.

V necks are a bit of a problem, as they are nearly always too low for me, and I have to wear a vest top underneath & I just can't be bothered this summer. Would prefer something a bit more 'special' and like what I would normally wear tbh - sorry I am very fussy. I know everyone raves about her but I don't really like jersey Isabella Oliver style dresses (tho maybe you have to try them on?)

Ok, I'm pretty much the same size as you, and just had my baby so bump issues are still fresh in my mind Grin

I think the first dress is lovely but I would really worry about how much boob coverage you would get. In my experience those dresses just aren't designed for those of us with big boobs, and you end up either having them overspilling or having the lower part lifted up by the bottom of your boobs, giving a really odd shape Sad

The red one may be a better bet. It's still lovely.

Than guys only just seen more replies! I love Tiffany Rose but just wondering if I can justify the price. I think I'll max the credit card, order all 3 and see what looks ok...
