The wedding and party season is in full swing and no doubt you will have been invited to an event or two.
If you’re in the middle or later stages of your pregnancy then you’ll know that picking that smart maternity dress for your friend’s wedding or summer party isn’t as easy as stepping into a store and picking the first dress that takes your fancy.
Instead you have to consider how big your bump will be and if the frock you pick will be suitable for other events, because lets face it we all like a bit of recycling in our lives.
Opting for a maxi dress is a great way to channel the smart look, while a floral number is great for mums-to-be who want to show off their fashion sense.
A chiffon number will keep you and your bump cool, while opting for a non-maternity frock with an empire waist and abundance of fabric will also let your bump grow.
Opt for the next size up and take it in after the baby arrives.
