based in dublin but willing to travel a bit, anyone know good shops for ocassion wear..............i've a wedding comming up would like a nice fitted dress to flatter the bump, i'm quite neat! been looking on-line but would like to try on some stuff first, looked in mamas & papas in blanch thought they had nothing...............help!!!!
I have a wedding July and got a dress from Isabella Oliver, I love it. It was a bit pricey but I could find nothing nice that sited me at all.
Keep an eye on this website for discount codes, I was lucky and got 20% off when I ordered.
Nelo on Clarendon Street have some nice dressy maternity stuff
Bella Mama in Ranelagh, just at the Triangle, had some lovely dresses when I was in there last, but that was a good few weeks ago. They are very helpful in there too, and do alterations if needed etc.
If you're neat, don't discount Monsoon. The empire line and full skirt thing they do is super-flattering for the bump. I tried on a rake of stuff most of which was brilliant and ended up getting a lovely dress there. I'd normally be size 8 in there and all of the 10 or 12 dresses empire line and loose dresses fit brilliantly. I'm not small - I wore it at 30 weeks - it's just that the designs there are very bump-friendly. Hth.
thanks all, will keep looking........
Bump & beyond in Swords has some beautiful maternity dresses, Nelo on Clarendon St also really good, think they have most of their stuff online too
