http://www.isabellaoliver.com/maternity-clothes/ A little pricey but I bought a couple of wrap dresses there and they have gotten me through dress up or dress down. Delivery is next day! Execellent service

I dont know if you are close to the border, but found out today there is a shop in enniskillen doing maternity dress hire for between £35 and £45. I am thrilled because I have a wedding in three weeks time and now hate the dress I have for it. Their website is www.bumpthematernitystore.co.uk. The lady is from Dublin married and living in Enniskillen. She has posted me things before and is extremely helpful. I rang today to see if she had many dresses before I went down and she said she had lots of new ones in stock from sizes 8-22 for sale and hire. I know I sound like an ad but am just so thrilled at the prospect of hiring a dress instead of having to pay hundreds for a dress I will only wear once. Good luck! By the way the shop is called bump.

Why not try a size up in a shop like Monsoon? I got a dress a size bigger than normal there for a wedding when I was 16/17 wks and it looked perfect. They have some really nice empire line cut dresses in at the moment that might work.

try klassy dress hire, based in carlow. Some fab dresses to hire. They have a website so google that and you should find them.

I got a fab dress for a wedding in Nelo during the week. They have a nice range and not overly proced either. I went to the clarendon st shop in Dublina but they're in cork and limerick too.

I paid €105 for a lovely "Maternal America" knee-length dress, so not too pricey. There's not too much on the website but good selection in the shop (I tried on about 6 black dresses and 2 or 3 brighter colours too.) Good luck.

Happy Shopping :wv
