    Default Tips for a maternity outfit

    I have a wedding to go to in 5 weeks, and even though I'm only 6.5 weeks now, I'll be about 12 weeks by then and I'm already getting a tummy!
    It's my second bub so I'm guessing I'm probably going to show earlier. But the problem I have is that I don't really want to let that particular circle of friends know about it around the wedding (don't want to look like I'm trying to steal anyone's thunder iykwim).
    We don't really want to announce it earlier than the wedding because it feels a bit TOO early for us to be telling friends.

    Anyway after all that dribble, my point is that I need a style of dress that won't cost the earth that will help to minimize the appearance of my tummy.
    I need some suggestions! Anything that ties around the waist won't work because I have quite a small waist and drawing attention to it would make it look more obvious that something's going on.
    But my boobs have gotten ENORMOUS already, so an empire cut which wouldn't accentuate my waste will also do the exact opposite with my already huge honkers!

    So what do I do? Does anyone have any suggestions of styles or stores? It's a daytime wedding and probably more cocktail style. It won't be particularly warm but I'm ok with wearing a bolero or something similar.
    Any suggestions appreciated .

    I'm thinking maybe a shift dress, something with a higher neckline (so attention isn't drawn to your breasts) that skims over the belly. They are generally a bit shapeless but that can good as it won't draw attention to your torso - it will draw attention to your legs.

    FREAKIN' GENIUS!

    I'm so terrible with clothes, I'd never have thought of a shift dress I will begin my hunt!
    Any other tips still appreciated, I'm not sure what a shift dress will look like on me yet so a few options would be handy

    Also White Peach, where did you find that first picture? That's pretty much exactly what I'd be looking for (the flower at the next of the other one is a bit fru-fru for me *dies of laughter*).

    Eko i just googled "cocktail shift dress" and looked thru the images. That green dress seems to be from a site called New for the Night, at first glance seems to be an outfit rental business in the Usa?? Prob not going to be very helpful for you!!! :-P
