SarahMTighe:  I would just pick a dress with an empire waist and order one size up from your usual. You will likely still have to take in the bust, but the skirt should fit. Do they have any empire waisted dresses with pleats or gathers at the seamline? Too bad she didn’t choose a chiffon dress- so much easier for you.

if you get pregnant your feet will swell and standing a lot will be uncomfortable- I think you should bow out gracefully from being a bridesmaid

SarahMTighe:  My sister was in a similar situation for my wedding. Her due date kept changing so she was due right around my wedding date. We didn’t know if she would be VERY pregnant or if she would have just delivered. We went with an empire waist in a size up.

yumcheez:  That’s not necessarily true. I didn’t have that issue at all while pregnant.

SarahMTighe:  I have to agree with everyone else a nice chiffon dress with an empire waist would be best. My MOH wasn’t pregnant when we picked her dress but now she is and will be about 5 months pregnant at my wedding in 3 weeks. She loves the dress, is beautiful in it and most of all comfortable!

SarahMTighe:  Maybe you should cross that bridge when you come to it? Fingers crossed you don’t have problems conceiving, but if it takes a few cycles you might get away with a normal dress. Good luck ttc and start looking for a dress once you get that bfp!!!

SarahMTighe:  The following two dresses are from the allure bridal bridesmaid dresses and could accomodate a growing belly from the pletes in the front and having ahigh/empire waistling?.. it should be no problem.. they are both chiffon and quite flowy..

Oh then that will be a little more dificult.. allure may be ably to pull up the waist on a satin down?.. but they will charge extra for the fabric to plete the front..

Order an extra bolt of fabric and a dress that you like on you today. If you’re pregnant, a seamstress can use the extra fabric to expand the dress in the way that works best with the style. If you order the fabric when you order the dress, it will come from the same dye lot, so it’ll be an exact match amd no one will notice that it’s been heavily altered.

I supose then that you will just have to wait till a week or two from when you need to order them and go in personally to see them.. take a pillow and pretend.. if you succeed quickly like you did baby #1?
