    I have a wedding on 10th August, by which time I will be 32 weeks! I am already huge and trying to find something acceptable to wear.

    Any thoughts on this? Any other suggestions would be appreciated! I want my chunky bingo wings covered!!! xx

    Personally (and please don't be offended!) I don't like it. I think it would swamp even the most petite lady and combined with a bump you risk making yourself look huge! What size ru normally?

    However, it does look very cool and comfortable! H&M often do some lovely maternity stuff that will compliment bump, although I don't know what they have in their current range.

    You may be suprised what regular stuff u can buy which still looks lovely over a bump. I'm still in a lot of non mat stuff, esp dresses.

    Good luck hun

    Xx

    ^^^wss - I'm afraid I agree I think it would make even the smallest lady look huge, never mind what it would do to a bump. Sorry.

    I think New look maternity dresses are so lovely and a lot of them have three quarter arms which are so nice looking x

    How about a maxi dress with a shawl? I bought a lovely maternity one to a wedding a few weeks ago and I felt extremely comfy in it all day it was lovely and cool. But i've just looked and they've sold out of the one I got. Good luck I know its a nightmare !!

    New look do really nice dresses. Bought a lovely lace one which had 3/4 length arms. Was fitted but very flattening. I think it's nice to show off your bump. Embrace it while you can I say.

    My friends run a maternity hire company, and they have some lovely dresses for hire if you want to treat yourself to something a bit more special but without the giant price tag! Their website is www.hireexpectations.co.uk
