Dear Stylemma, I have a wedding to attend in the next few weeks and I’m having a nightmare sorting out what dress to wear. I’m six months pregnant, so I want something elegant but comfortable — what do you recommend? Nelo Maternity on Clarendon Street is a dream come true for mums-to-be.
Their satin-trim maternity dress with three-quarter length sleeves, €89, comes in black or purple, falls to the knee and is made from soft jersey material: it looks great and it feels even better. Online Irish store www.hautemama.ie has a fabulous range of European and US labels — the Passepartout sundress, €49, is extremely flattering thanks to its dainty cap sleeves and ruching on the bust, while the pale buttercup hue will leave you feeling like Little Miss Sunshine. If you want to channel some red-carpet glamour, then take a trip to the Cork-based store Beautiful Bumps.
Their full-length satin dress in scarlet, €229, would make any mama-to-be look like a million dollars. Send your style dilemmas to firstname.lastname@example.org
