    I'm due on February 24 and am in my friend's wedding on April 18. I have to order my BM dress soon and have no idea what size to get. I'm usually a size 4 in wedding/BM dresses. But I have no idea how much weight I will gain with this pregnancy and how fast I will lose it. If the baby comes on time, I will have 6 weeks from his/her birth til the wedding. I'm definitely planning to order at least 1-2 sizes bigger (it can always be taken in), but don't want to order too big or too small. Any suggestions?!?!?

      I'm trying to remember what size I was after my kids. I'm usually a size 2 and because I breastfed both of mine I lost the weight pretty fast. But that's another thing to think about too, if your going to be breastfeeding your breast will get huge. So maybe a size 8would be good.

        I was going to say it matters what size your bust normally is you need a dress size that will fit your bust and then you can take it in from there. My cousin is normally a size 4 and her waist went back to a size 4 when she had the baby pretty quickly but her bust needed a 8 and that was tight basically you will have to resize the entire dress so buy bigger just in cae

          I also breastfed and ended up smaller than the size I started. My chest was however, HUGE. It's easier to work from more fabric than to have fabric added. What's the style of the dress?

            I'm still a 4 for dresses but for pants sometimes I have to get a 6, so I think it depends on how big your boobs are, mine are super tiny so that's why I can fit in my dresses

              Thanks for the feedback girls. I think I'll definitely go with an 8. She's still undecided on which dress to get, so I'm not sure the style yet. My chest is usually very small and hasn't gotten too much bigger being prego, but I don't want to chance it.
