    Default Maternity cocktail dress

    I have an event coming up in few weeks, I will be about 29 weeks pregnant at the time and am wondering if anyone could recommend any online stores to buy reasonably priced dresses!

    Thanks!

    I went to a wedding when I was 33wks and bought a cocktail dress from maternity sales online.

    ASOS have a nice maternity range I've found their sizing runs big though

    I've attended all sorts of formal events through all my pregnancies and personally I've never worn a maternity specific dress for something like that. I find they're often too expensive to wear one off. I have bought beautiful tunic dresses from boutiques or shops like Gorman which I know I'll wear for years to come.

    Also given it's coming into winter you can often find a lot more choice as a lot of winter clothing is suitable given people like to layer up.

    Yes to ASOS!! Bought 2 lovely and quite cheap dresses for weddings from there last year. Was free delivery (and very fast) at the time too.

    Asos i found do run bigger and arent as flattering or as comfortable as some of the specialty mat stores..like Ripe Maternity ....depending how big u are u might be lucky to find a stretchy wrap dress at DJs, Myers or Big W / Target...even in a bigger size they are flattering cos of their style good luck
