Is it ok to dress sexy when pregnant?(for wedding)

Going to a wedding on Sat. I had two choices for a dress. One was a long maxi dress which is lovely, but of course had no shoes to match and the ones I got that match ok are a bit high IMO for being comfortable and pg.

Then I got this dress off ebay which arrived today. It's rediculously comfortable, I have shoes(black pumps) to match that I've worn a zillion times, so no concerns about too high/wobbly etc. Seller also provided me with a cute black sash to put above belly and I'll pin with a brooch on the side(suppose emphasis pg/cute etc).


Anyhoo, do you think it's ok to wear a dress that's still a bit clingy etc when 6.5 m pregnant. I would be pretty similar sizing to ladies on this site, I think the dress is a teeny bit clingier than show on them.

It's a young couple getting married and a lot of our younger friends(late 20's/early mid 30's)


Or is it a bit much seeing a pg lady in a clingy dress?

I should mention that the maxi dress I would feel fine in flats, but feel like it could be a tripping hazard with long dress, high shoes...

Hmm..what does your significant other think, and how do you feel about it? I probably wouldn't but only because I think that people that I would probably be around might not be comfortable with it. I would probably feel okay in that kind of a dress, but I wouldn't want to make other people feel uncomfortable.

I don't really see it as super sexy (in the showing too much or something like that manor) but I'm young (22) so I don't know if that makes a difference. I would definitely wear it to the wedding if you are comfortable in it.

Yeah I don't think it is super sexy either. I think it is pretty and would look cute.

I think it looks nice! Wear it! If you can wear a sexy dress at 6.5 months pregnant then do it! At this point I don't feel sexy in anything, but I think it was easier at 6.5 months...I don't remember.

I don't think it looks revealing or overly sexy, but I think its weird to wear black to a wedding. But hey, I'm old fashioned Just my
