raspberrybidet :  I don’t mean to be a debbie downer, but I really don’t think that this dress will work at 7 months pregnant, the waist/sash part comes way too low on the stomach. I think she will need to find something with more of an empire waist that is flowy straight down from the bust area like these:

sapphire27 :  I agree. As someone who has recently had a baby, there’s no way a waistline like that would have worked for me at seven months pregnant.

I’m currently 28 weeks, so 7 months pregnant. I’m also about an 8 in bridal, street size 6, so very similar to your friend! I think the dress is beautiful, but not great for a pregnant woman. That’s way too tight around the abdomen. While 2 sizes up *might* work in the thighs or breasts, for me, it would definitely not be enough in the belly area. Of course, everyone gains pregnancy weight differently, but just looking at that dress and imaging putting it on right now feels overwhelming. 

I think it’s such a sweet gesture for you to buy a dress for your friend! Congrats on her pregnancy!
