Great bump dress! Tons of compliments all night!
I rented this dress for a formal party my husband and I attended when I was 22 weeks pregnant. Since I would normally wear a 6, I wanted to size up to an 8, but it was unavailable. I was getting desperate for any dress, so I decided to try the 10R. It was slightly big on me, especially on top. I ended up having to cross the top of the back and pin it over itself to make it look nice, but it wasn't noticeable, even with my hair up. I didn't mind the extra room in the rest of the dress, but I think the 8 would have been fine as well. The only issue was that the dress was a bit short for a regular length dress. I'm 5'2", by no means tall, and it was barely longer than floor length without shoes. I almost wore flats, but decided to go with heels anyway and it was fine. Just beware the length-- I triple checked to make sure I hadn't somehow ended up with a Petite instead. Overall- this dress is perfect if you are pregnant and I would definitely rent it again. It seems like it would work at any stage of pregnancy and I felt beautiful-- several strangers stopped to tell me how amazing I looked.
