I found lots of dress options for you—some are short, a few are long—and I hope that one of these works for you. :)
I love this Susana Monaco maxi ($202). The gathering at the waistline will be flattering and the shape is simple and chic. Another pretty maxi dress is this one from Young, Fabulous & Broke ($215). The blousy gathering around the midsection is perfect! If you want something more on the casual side, this tshirt-style Velvet by Graham & Spencer maxi ($129) could work. This embroidered maxi by Babakul is on sale for $85 (from $189).
If you wanted something a bit more bridal, this Anthropologie lace dress ($150) is a good style for skimming over your body instead of hugging it too tightly. This Nanette Lepore dress ($192 from $398) is a little more conservative and has such pretty detail if you zoom in. This Dolce Vita dress ($193) is very bridal—so gorgeous.
If you wanted something more boho-chic, this For Love and Lemons dress ($195) has gorgeous lace on the sleeves and on the hem. It’s a flowy style so you don’t need to worry about the problem areas! Another similar dress is this one on sale for $50 (from $168) from Free People.
One of my favorite options for you is this Vero Moda dress. It’s just $71 and has a flattering, body-skimming fit.
Another favorite is this Elizabeth and James dress (marked down to $173 from $385!). It’s nice and loose and has great detail on the back.
The pleated sleeves on this Alice + Olivia dress are so interesting and the style strikes just the right balance between casual/dressy. It’s on sale for $192 (from $396).
This simple, full-skirted cotton dress from Calvin Klein ($128) is perfect if you want something minimal. J.Crew’s cotton pique dress ($158, take 25% off with code SPRINGISHERE) is drop-waisted, which is not my favorite postpartum style, but it might work perfectly for you! (I suggest trying it on in store if you can!)
This eyelet shift dress from Banana Republic is $130 (get 30% off today with code BRTODAY). Pretty, not too clingy.
The neckline on this Silence + Noise maxi might be too low for you, but it’s just $69 and the empire waist is great!
I love this midi cami dress from ASOS ($159). The sequins are subtle and the style could be dressed up or worn more casually (with sandals). This kimono sleeve midi dress from ASOS ($45 from $76) is good too.
This dress from ZARA ($99) is cute—I like the textured fabric.
If you want something that doesn’t hug your body at all, this Rachel Pally maxi dress ($242) has the fabric floating straight down from the bodice. Rachel Pally’s caftan dress ($233) is really nice.
I don’t know if you’ve thought of renting one, but RTR has a few dresses that caught my eye! This Shoshanna ($45) has a peplum and peplums are GREAT for disguising postpartum problem areas. If you were leaning toward a long dress, this Erin by Erin Fetherston one isn’t too stuffy or fancy ($100). This Tibi dress is just $40 and is very sweet and pretty. Last—this Vera Wang dress ($128) is made of cotton canvas so it’s heavy enough to disguise bumps and smooth over any areas you might feel uncomfortable about. I love the structured skirt.
Have a great wedding day and enjoy all these exciting things happening in your life! xo
