    Default Maternity ball gown / dress

    Help! I'm going to a black tie ball at the beginning of November, but I'll be 6 and a half months pregnant then (already have a fair bump). Can anyone recommend any stores to get a dress that would fit in either Central Coast / Sydney or online?

    I've had a bit of a look on eBay but nothing took my fancy as most of it's from China which can be a bit hit or miss in my experience. I want something floor length as it's a formal event and all the nice dresses on maternity websites seem to be short. Do people not go to black tie events when pregnant? Lol.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Have you tries ASOS maternity? I have seen nice long formal dresses on there. Cannot comment on length as I am short so everything is long on me.

    I second ASOS Maternity - some nice dresses. I think I saw some on QueenBee Maternity as well.

    ETA: Both have long dresses.

    Depends how much you want to spend. Pea in a Pod have some nice long dresses but the average price is around $180. This one is on special 1443639352145.jpg

    I had a formal wedding at 39 weeks and I actually picked up a really nice floor length gown from ally. It was loose from the bust down so flowed over my massive bump easily. There are no zippers in it either. Best part was it was on sale for $20. Would definitely recommend going and having a look and trying some on.

    I went to a formal wedding at 6 months pregnant and strangely enough found a gorgeous maxi dress in City Beach! It had a lace bust and chiffon type flowy skirt.

    Otherwise ASOS is always a good bet. Their sizes are regular.

    I bought a full length dress from Asos when I was pregnant to wear to a black tie dinner. It was lovely and fit really well.

    I just had a quick look at their website. Had some nice stuff and not bad prices. Might go have a look in Erina tomorrow when DD is at daycare.
