    Hi ladies, do any of you have ideas for a nice, short (above knee-length) dress I can buy to wear at my friend's wedding in Feb? I will be around 20 weeks by then so the bump will not be too huge.

    I'm a size 10 but quite short (only 5'00"!), and my boobs are embarrassingly big these days, so I wouldn't want to wear anything that draws too much attention to them (no busty cleavage on display!)

    I'm not feeling hugely inspired by any maternity dresses I see online, but I may not have checked the right places. I suppose it doesn't have to come from a maternity collection so long as it has space for the bump. Oh and I'm UK based.

    I would be really grateful for any tips! Thanks!
    xx

    I have got my aunties wedding in May and I will be quite heavily pregnant then so im wondering the same.. to be honest if your bump isnt too huge it might be worth going to places like topshop or next etc that do maternity but will still look fashionable. I also shop on asos.com and they have a maternity section too so might be worth trying xx

    try dorothy perkins i know they have a petite range and you might find something to go with the bump there, i seen some nice dresses on new looks website in the maternity section

    since your only going to be 20 weeks you might be able to get away with a non maternity dress if your not too big so empire line dresses could sit very well

    mothercare have some lovely tea dress style ones. So nice that I have two already :rofl:

    They all look vile on the website so go in and try on. I tried on every dress they had and was torn between FOUR! nice tea dress, matching pashmina and shoes and a little fascinator. Lovely job :D

    Hi,

    I've just returned from holiday and bought a load of dresses from asos. I got some bargains and some of the dresses I bought would be suitable for a wedding.

    Happy shopping!
