Bridesmaid

I guess the correct term is Matron of Honor, but bridesmaid is so much cuter. My little sister is engaged and although she is entirely too young (28), everyone tells me there's not much I can do about it. So here's the scoop, she is marrying her longtime friend Josh in November. I will be 32 weeks along. That's eight months people. I am in need of a cute bridesmaid dress. Wait, make that a cute maternity bridesmaid dress. No wait, make that a cute, modest maternity bridesmaid dress. You see my dilemma. There are a lot of cute maternity bridesmaid dresses on line, but it seems designers think if your breasts are going to get huge, you must want to show everyone. I'm taking suggestions for dress shops in Utah, or online, or even really talented seamstresses.

You'll look cute no matter what. I really loved my pregnant body. Now if only I could learn to love my postpartum body...

I bought a delightful little black dress for a wedding at Motherhood Maternity....it was modest AND "slimming" to my rather pregnant 7 1/2 body! You might be able to find something you like and then have it modified by a tailor at a bridal dress shop (i.e. add some sparkles....every pregnant bridesmaid needs sparkles!!)...I'm pretty sure you're not the first pregnant maid of honor...and I totally agree, 28 IS to too young to get married!!

You are so tiny, that you will never get very big. Any dress you love will do. Mimi Maternity at Gateway might have something, or Pea in a Pod. I did not do much maternity shopping. You really only need it the last month or so.

Well I needed maternity clothes before the last month (lets say half way at least)...but elastic waste skirts work great when you are pregnant so...I have never bought maternity dresses. I would think Utah of all places would have some. I bet they can order their dresses in Maternity sizes even if it appears they don't carry any in the store. Good luck on that search. And congrats to Jessica on the engagement!!

totallymodest.com has some maternity styles online although I'm sure Modest By Design in Layton/SLC would have SOMETHING. You'll probably be good with a non-maternity dress with an empire waist since those make even the smallest women look pregnant when they're not. You'll want to compensate for your "assets" so I wouldn't recommend buying or even trying on anything until just before. I find that I go up a cup size with every pregnancy. (Fortunately for me, they don't deflate! Although they're still going to need to be lifted at some point.) Okay, TMI.
