"I'm looking for advice on how to buy a bridesmaids dress for my future pregnant self. I'm not visibly pregnant now, but I will be eight months pregnant at the wedding. The bride would really like all the 'maids to match. The big bridal shop says to buy your dress two sizes bigger and then tailor it down, but I have a little bit of sewing know-how and I'm worried that taking in the bust so that it looks good will be more difficult than they're suggesting. Do you have any advice for and/or experience tailoring dresses for pregnancy?" – Jantina

I'd suggest asking your bride to accommodate you wearing an actual maternity bridesmaid dress, if you can. You can absolutely tailor a regular dress to your needs, but a maternity dress will save you some time.

Here are some non-frumpy maternity bridesmaid dresses to peruse. I chose as many dresses that I could find to accommodate your growing tummy, with regular, plus, and custom sizing options in totally affordable price ranges. These maternity bridesmaid dresses should help you stay comfortable while standing, sitting, and dancing. Let's take a peek at what we found and also a few tips for tailoring said dress if these aren't an option.

Maternity tailoring tips

  • If you are a pregnant bridesmaid who is going to be further along in your pregnancy, you might want need gussets sewn in your gown. To get extra fabric to match, you can sometimes use the fabric from the hem at the bottom or from an accompanying wrap.
  • Alternately, consider converting the zipper into a lace-up corset back.
  • Keep doing fittings to make sure the dress still fits as you grow larger.
