    Every crimbo I always buy a nice dress or outfit to wear xmas day and to the xmas parties so this year Ive been trawling the internet to find something nice. Maternity stuff is so ugly or just too big :?

    I found this dress on ebay and Ive just bid on it. I woulda brought it in white and gold but Im not sure il feel all that yummy in it being so much bigger this year so I went for safe black. God knows if it will fit or not but its got no waist so Im hoping I can cram myself in it :lol:

    Cripes not really thought about that. We don't bother with going out much and all that. I've never worn a dress in my life :shock:

    I'll put on a skirt and blouse or something on Christmas Day when the family are here, but I doubt it'll be anything new.

    LOL - I was in mat stuff at about 8-9 weeks I think :oops: I do look like Im having quads though so its not suprising :rotfl: Personally I think there isnt a wide enough maternity range. I wear mat jeans and trousers but find normal tops and dresses in a slightly bigger size at the mo.

    Oh manda that sucks! I have abstained from heels too so far but for a special occasion Il hook them out. How about kitten heels?

    ive been in them from about 9 weeks i think
    i buy from many different laces though
    you can get some under bump jeans/trousers called early term they fit quite well at the start
    as for tops i wear mat tops as they look better on me as i used to live in vests they are all too short now :)

    sarah i will be wearing my heels if we go anywhere nice its our year aniversary coming up on dec 13th hoping to go out for a meal so going to sneak a pair of heels on lol :)

    i shop in newlook (great for tops i get them at £3 each in the sales, not so good for trousers unless you are tall)
    -next never had any probs with there clothes lenth wise
    -littlewoods i find the sizes a bit big i ordered 10's but they are more like 12's
    -vertbaudet.co.uk loads of choice and not bad prices either
    -h&m quite stylish a little bit more exspenive then some places but good quality clothes
    think thats about it oh peacocks do some but again trousers miles long on me and tops aint to my taste :)

    aww my main one does but they have scaled down the selection for xmas but il be going in there in the sales to get a few bargins :)
    i find most shops do some mat clothes and if you have the time to shop about you can get some great clothes for good prices :)

    I love that dress Sarah :D

    I haven't got any parties planned yet to go to, don't even know what we're doing xmas day yet, whether we'll be going to the inlaws or staying at home.

    I'd love to go stay with my parents in Devon for xmas but can't cos I've got to work xmas eve and several days between boxing day and new years :cry:
