peachacid:  How about a maxi dress paired with a cardigan of some sort?

I’d look for an empire waist style dress. Our Macy’s has a maternity section near the dresses. I’d look for something in this kind of shape/sillouette. Just make sure it’s long enough for your belly… being short should help with that though.

peachacid:  You mentioned that you can get to a few outlets.  If it’s a decent sized outlet mall it should have a maternity store.  There’s a larger Gap and Old Navy near me that have small maternity sections.  Otherwise I’d look for empire waist and a longer length so it’s not too short in the front with your belly.  A maxi dress could work if you rigged it with hem tape for the evening.  Good luck!

Wait, I’m 5’2″ and maxi dresses can be a little long, but you can definitely wear them. Especially pregnant and with no other options the next day! 

I would just start hitting those outlets hard, try on lots of things & hope for the best.. 

If nothing works, hey, you’re pregnant! What better excuse to show up to a wedding in comfy leggings? 🙂

Do you have a Target? They seem to have a pretty decent maternity section and is pretty affordable.

If not, it’s really hard to tell you what to wear without knowing what stores are available or close by.

peachacid:  No matter what we tell you, you will argue against it. You have posted your pics here before. You do NOT have fat legs. Short people CAN wear a maxi dress.

Given that you are pregnant, and that you don’t like yourself in anything, anyhow, I suggest you buy either a maternity dress or an empire waist dress. At least then, you woud have something to wear in the next few weeks.

A top and leggings are not appropriate for a wedding.

See if your Macy’s has this dress . It’s from their maternity seection, but it has a removeable belt so you can place it wherever suits you best at the time.

this one would be perfect for the holidays

This maxi (yes you can wear a maxi) is on sale, perfectly on trend in black and white and the diagonal stripes fool the eye in regards to both height and width. Wear it with a cute black cardigan or wrap.

You could also try a wrap dress. Those are easy to wear and adjust to however your belly is feeling at the moment.

And I agree, I wouldn’t do a maxi dress as my first choice (not because you’re “too short” for one — you’re not! but because I htink they tend to be too informal for weddings).

ps Make an appointment in the near future with a wardrobe stylist/personal shopper and LISTEN to what they say. Put aside your own opinions. You have had plenty of feedback here on the Boards that you are not seeing yourself as other see you.

We shouldn’t have to go crisis shopping. Our closets should contain pieces that we can wear in different ways to different events. You will spend less money and not be wasting time right before an event trying to find something to wear.

You are going to need clothes throughout your pregnancy and you will likely have at least a few events where you want to dress up.

If you realy want to wear pants, and you own some in a dressy material, look for an embellished tank top that is loose and flowy at the bottom.
