Bridesmaid who just had a baby...How do you pick a dress size! HELP!!

Recommended Posts

I am hoping that someone else has been in a similar situation and can give me some advice here. I just found out my niece, who is one of my bridesmaid's is pregnant and will not be able to attend my DW Wedding. I am sad that she will not be able to come, but am totally ok with it and super happy for her! She has been trying for a long time.

 

My problem is with her dress. I am having an at home reception shortly after we get back and she will be able to attend that. She will still need to buy a bridesmaid dress, but have no clue what size she would be. The reception will be one month after she gives birth, so I am sure she will still have some baby weight on. And she doesn't want to get the dress before she starts showing because she thinks it will be too tight to wear after giving birth. She is totally already stressed about dress shopping and we haven`t even looked yet! How do you know what size to buy when you have no idea what size you will be!

 

Has anyone else had this problem and how did they go about dress shopping?

 

I would appreciate any tips or suggestions on this! :)

 

Thanks!

That's a toughie. It really depends on how much weight she gains during pregnancy since even with breastfeeding she won't be able to lose a ton in one short month. My sister only put on 35lbs so she was able to get back down quickly but my mom put on almost 70lbs with my older sister so you never know!

I don't know what type of dress you were wanting for the bridesmaids, but if you get like an empire waist dress that flowed freely down and wasn't tight, you would only really have to worry about the bust area which should not be too hard to gauge (maybe 1-2 sizes up from where she is now). Would that work?

this happened to my friend...she ordered 2 sizes larger than her pre-pregnancy size. That way if she needed to get it taken in, it wasn't a big deal. She ended up just wearing it as is...I say order larger, it's easier to take it in than it is to take it out.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
