Help! What did you wear to your shower?

Postby trying2beehopeful » Mon Sep 08, 2014 5:37 pm

Ladies, I need help! My shower is in 2 weeks and I have NOTHING to wear.

I found a dress at Marshalls that I liked, it was a size 8 but I couldn't get the zipper all the way up, my boobs wouldn't allow it, and it was largest size they had, I was a 2 pre-pregnancy, I totally broke down in fitting room, balled my eyes out on the drive home. :cry:

My Mom is going all out for this shower, so I need a nice dress at a resonable price. What did you wear to your shower? Where did you purchase it? Suggestions please!

With my first I had just a cute top with some pants. Was at a park, fun and easy not all fancy. This time at my house also fun and easy and because a dress makes me look fat and not pregnant no matter what dress because I carry low, I will probably go with a cute top and a skirt :)

Hope you find something!

How about a long flowing maxi dress? You could wear a cute biker jacket over it in case it's chilly or some other type of jacket or top over it.

Thank you ladies! I found a dress, a blue maxi dress from Marshalls. It's not my favorite and it kind of makes me look huge but... I don't care anymore, it fits and its comfortable.

Why not get a maternity specific dress from Target, Kohls, etc... they would be flattering because you can get them in your small size but they allow for your huge belly. I can imagine that putting clothing on that's way too big all around just to accommodate your belly looks awful on you - that's why maternity clothes are so nice. :/
