Tips for Pregnant Bridesmaids: Maternity Bridesmaid Dress
Sizing You Up
As a general rule, mom-to-be bridesmaids should add an inch to each measurement for every remaining month of pregnancy before the wedding day. For instance, if the wedding is 2 months away, then account for an additional 2 inches to your current bust, waist and hip measurements.
Friendly Tips If you are 7-9 months pregnant at the wedding, you should not only consider the size, but also consider purchasing extra fabric for alterations. With a large bump, your bridesmaid dress may lose too much length in the front. So, providing extra matching fabric to your seamstress will be extremely helpful!
