I am currently very early on (7w1d) but I have been invited to attend 2 weddings – one when I’ll be about 25 weeks and one at 34 weeks. I’d like to only buy one dress since they seem to be so expensive.
Where did you find a nice maternity formal dress? What cut did you find most comfortable? I’m seeing a lot of empire waists but also the dresses that accent the belly with the ruching (sp?) on the sides.

Have you thought about doing Rent the Runway? They have a special section that is called “bump friendly?”

Oh wow, no I hadn’t thought about that! I’ll have to take a look 🙂 Thanks!

Ebay is a great resource as well. Most likely a dress that you can wear when you are 25 weeks is not going to fit right at 34 weeks. I just went through this! So, you may want to check sale racks, Ebay, resale, etc.

I had a black tie wedding to go to and I got this dress in black.
It was really pretty, and comfortable. I’d be willing to sell it -if you’re interested, send me a PM. Otherwise, I looked everywhere, and I liked Ripe Maternity’s dresses the best. You can get them at figure8maternity.com too.
