I was still a good 20-25lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight with DD when I was a BM in a wedding around 4 months pp.  I got a stretchy, flowy, empire waist dress and stuffed myself into some spanx.  It was snug, but it worked.  It was I think 2 sizes up from my normal size?  I figured I could get it taken in if need be.

Oh, and my boobs were definitely not back to normal since I was breastfeeding.  By the end of the night they were borderline inappropriate, so that’s just something for her to consider when chosing a neckline.

Wait as long as is reasonable, then order it on the larger side to be safe.  Dresses can always be taken in, but not always let out!
