I had 2 weddings to go to last year when I was 29 and 33 weeks pregnant. I bought a dress from littlewoods catelogue in a bigger size. Pregnancy i was size 18/20 i bought 22/24. Took it to the dress maker to get taken up at the top. It also had matching shrug. Found it very comfortable. Hope this helps.

There's no decent maternity wear out there at all, and if there is you pay an absolute fortune for it! I've a wedding at 36 weeks - I'll keep this in mind! Although at that stage nothing will fit me!
