Hi all hoping someone can find me a nice/suitable dress. My Christmas work do is on the 7th Dec. I'll be 17 weeks pregnant, I'm 15 atm and not showing just have a small podge/bloat. I'm young, size 8 and 5ft2. Would like a dress which can make me look nice but conceal my bump if I have one. Thanks all any help much appreciated! X

Look for a dress that has some folds or pleats across the stomach but is fitted in other areas.

I really think it's more flattering to accentuate rather than try to hide your bump. I wore a lot of body con dresses while pregnant which is not a style I wore before but felt great in them. Sorry it's not exactly answering your question but maybe consider something close fitting that showcases your lovely neat 17 week bump!

Have a look at Popsy clothing - they have some lovely dresses.

Ahh I see! Anything with an empire line then would be best I think!

I wondered if you meant that Meghan @Agatha...and I was gonna say she may be a size 8 but I don't think she would be called young and she looks pretty tall?! 😂

What's the dress code? Wrap dresses are always a great idea or maxi ddresses

Dressy. Men in suits women in dresses not a black tie event though I keep looking but can't find anything I think would do the job. Will keep searching!! Xx

DP in size 8

This would also be very comfortable and I imagine it will do you through Christmas and New Year if you have other occasions to dress up.
