    But I'm gonna be at a funeral at 7/8 months pregnant and don't know where to find suitable clothes? Also, would it be considered too casual to attend in flat shoes? It'll probably be held in a church.

    I've never thought that wearing flat shoes would make it casual? i wore flats to a wedding at the weekend, just ballet pump type ones. Perfectly fine! Better than being uncomfy and wobbly in heels... I haven't worn heels since i was about 18 weeks cos i kept veering off to one side when i was trying to walk straight! :)
    ASOS have some nice black dresses, some are on sale too

    As doggy121 said, plain dress with a dark cardi or jacket, perfectly fine hun.
    :hugs:

    Flat shoes are a must I would say, especially if it's a burial, cos then you don't sink into the grass!
    You can get black mat trousers from matalan for 14quid, and they are really nice.
    Sorry about your loss :hugs: xx

    I went to a funeral a couple of weeks ago and wore black trousers, a smart darkish top and my flip flops - I couldn't get my feet into anything else. It was in a Catholic church - the woman sat next to me was wearing flip flops too although she wasn't eight months pregnant!

    I think attitudes have changed a lot now.

    Thank you :flower:

    I have just thought, I have a non-maternity knee length tea dress that will probably still fit. It's pretty much perfect except that it's black with little white dots, would it still be appropriate do you think?

    Sounds fine - ive attended two funerals (my nans and my aunties) both last month so i was 7months, i wore a black dress with white peter pan collor black tights, smart cardigon and flat shoes! My aunties was in an Abby as it was a catholic funeral and no one seemed to notice, and at my nans the vicar shook my hand and i was worried what he would think as i wasnt wearing a ring and living in sin haha =p xx

    They say it's open toe shoes that's bad taste but I think you being there is what people care more about not the shoes your wearing! Go in comfy trousers!

    i went to my uncles funeral last week and i had to go in jeans and a black top with flat shoes, i explained to everyone before the day that i had no black clothes, at the funeral everyone was pleased i made the effort to go. i felt bad not being all in black but showing your respects is what matters the most.

    I think as long as people look presentable, the fact that they're at a funeral is enough :) x

    People dress much more casually for funerals these days and it's even unusual for people to wear black. I went to my nan's funeral when I was 7 months preg and I wore a teal green dress with black shoes that had a one inch heal. I was by far one of the smartest dressed people there. Others were wearing jeans and cardigans.

    I don't even wear black to funerals, I went to one recently and wore a floaty top/dress, leggings and ballet pumps.
