I have a wedding in less than two weeks and will be 33 wks pregnant, I have a fairly large bump, I look pretty much like this turkey is cooked. Im all bump though, and my legs etc are still skinny ( on my good days). I was a size 12, so id def be a 14 now, I am ordering this dress on ASOS http://www.asos.com/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2554612 [img:dw8n8lgq]http://images.asos.com/inv/media/2/1/6/4/2554612/black/image1xl.jpg[/img:dw8n8lgq] I went into town and tried on a dress very similar yesterday, black lace etc, when the girl asked me what size i was i said possibly a 16 and she said no way, your no where near a 16, the dress she gave me was a 14 it was loose still on me. Im wondering what size i should order this dress, I dont want it loose,and i dont want to be bet into it either. I dont have time to return this dress if its not right. Anyone experience with asos maternity sizes ?

Would you maybe order 2 sizes and return one? I'm normally a 12 but I've been ordering 14's on New look because i wanted stuff to last me to the end and my chest has gotten very big. I was ordering a dress on Next for a wedding and ordered a 14 but it was swimming on me so it does just depend on the store I think.

I'm a 14 (well...maybe a 15 at the moment) but when I was pregnant I was also "all bump" and I was a maternity 12! Himself bought me a dress from Asos in 14 and it was a little loose but grand on me. I'd be tempted to buy the 2 sizes as previous poster suggested. 12 and 14 (definitely not 16!)

Yomamma, Asos sizes are huge. I'm a good size 14 and the 12 fitted me perfectly. If I were you I'd order the 12 too.
