Very Bump Friendly!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner at 8 months pregnant, and I felt gorgeous. I got compliments all night on how tiny I was, which is great to hear when you're carrying a 20 pound bump. Fit wise, the dress was HUGE -- way too big. As in I could have easily worn the small, even as big as I was. The shoulders hung off me, and I'm not overly petite. I ended up cinching it with a skinny silver belt, and it looked like the oversize was intentional and really highlighted the bump instead of the too big shoulders. The length wasn't a problem (though I definitely wouldn't want it shorter!) and I wore it with flats. The reviews that talk about how it wrinkles are spot on -- I steamed it before wearing, and it still was a mess before the dinner even started. Thankfully, no one but me seemed to notice, and it still photographed beautifully. I wish RTR had better resources for us preggo ladies, but this dress definitely fits the bill.
