Dressing your bump for a wedding

By Elaine Scully Styling

A reader asked for my help she was looking for a dress to wear to a wedding in a few weeks time. The lovely lady will be 8 months pregnant and was having trouble finding a dress that she would be both comfortable and stylish in. I did some on-line window shopping for her and found the following styles which I feel would be perfect!




Tips: Look for a dress that is simple - you don't want too much fuss or detailing. You can add extra glamour to a simple elegant dress with the help of statement accessories. For a bump flattering fit choose Empire line styles (dresses with definition directly beneath your bust). Wide set straps and low cut v-necks are very flattering and slimming on your over all shape. Maxi styles give an instant glamorous look and help to lengthen and slim your figure.

I was thrilled to hear that my reader feel in love with one of the dresses and ordered it immediately. She is delighted with her new purchase and it fits her perfectly. I absolutely love hearing stories like this........and even though I have to work at my day job all weekend I will have a big smile on my face :)

Happy Shopping
