    Default Shapewear!!

    So I just received my dress that was based on my measurements nearly two months ago. I just found out I'm pregnant and the dreaded bloat is in full effect

    So I NEED SHAPEWEAR so I can fit into my gorgeous dress and not faint-that fine line really lol!

    Any suggestions? I'm usually a size 20 but with bloat I'm def 22! The event is 4 weeks away and I'm currently 5 weeks...HELP!!!

    Alternatively you could take it to a laundro mat and get it altered. I had the same problem when I got married, found out I was pregnant tho at 9 weeks I mm/c
    But my boobs grew heaps and didnt go down. Unfortunately it was too late to get it altered (I only had a couple of days to get it fixed) but its just an idea cos you might neex to get the boob area fixed too no doubt.

    i'd see if maybe possible to get altered. If not don't wear anything too tight. I wore shapewear under a dress to friends wedding at 12 weeks didnt think the pants were so tight i was in so much pain during the ceremony they were well off before the reception.

    I've found triumph to be awesome for bottom half. They do a good minimiser bra too but probs wouldn't go under your dress :/

    Good luck and I hope you find something/someone to help you!

    Thanks guys! I'm gunna see if I can get it altered but I doubt it N I definitely need something for my boobs as they are a size bigger already!

    Having to alter a dress is a small price to pay for a healthy bub so I guess we'll see! I need an extra size up to accommodate boob and lower belly bloat...
