    Default Fashion question

    So I am off to a wedding in early January and I will be 6.5 months pregnant. Its an evening wedding, it will be summer and tbh I already feel like a big whale so by then I will be heavier, more self concious and blah. The wedding is kind of 'c-grade celeb' so I know all the other women will be making a huge effort. I am struggling to find anything kind of decent but came across these:
    http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/Womens-Cl...=p3286.c0.m282

    Would you wear one of these to the wedding or do you think it's a little casual? I thought if I made an effort with my hair, skin and nails, I may look half decent.

    WDYT?

    I think they'll be really unflattering and give you absolutely no shape whatsoever.

    I also don't know the dress-code for the wedding, but they look like something you'd wear strolling around the beach... not what I'd wear to a wedding anyway.

    For that kind of money I'd much rather get something from ripe maternity or similar designer maternity dress.

    Ripe have some nice satin dresses for that price, or check out queenbee for special occasion dresses.

    I have seen a 6 way dress, Ripe I think? Or Sasha Drake has a 'normal' one that should work.

    I couldn't see the pictures but I got one of these dresses when I was pregnant and wore it to two weddings and a Christmas party! It was fantastic and made me feel good about my frumpy-ness lol!

    I agree.

    I know when you feel huge the urge is to cover up with big, baggy clothes but it usually just makes you look even bigger than you really are. Embrace your bump, don't hide it.
    Aside from that it does appear too casual to me but it really depends on what type of wedding it is and what the dress code is.

    Your belly is your best accessory, get something that will show it off

    I wouldnt wear that to a wedding, its for the beach.

    Check out Ripe Maternity - they are some beautiful dresses.

    The more you try and hide yourself with loose layers the bigger you will look.

    Show that belly off, you will look gorgeous!
