I attended my best friend’s wedding at the weekend. I only had a baby 6 weeks ago and I wasn’t really up for getting all glammed up with bub in tow but it was my best friend so what could I do? I had to suck it up.
I’m not feeling my usual self at the moment body-wise. My boobs are massive and sometimes one is bigger than the other due to breastfeeding. Sexy! I’m also a bit chunkier than usual (although you probably wouldn’t notice) so I wanted to wear a dress I would feel confident in.
As soon as I saw this Maiocchi Dress I knew it was the one. The Japanese inspired print is so bright and summery and a patterned dress masks baby vomit and milk spillage. My reality people! The dress is A-Line which doesn’t suit my body type but I loved the design so much I had it taken in at the sides into a pencil skirt.
The vertical panel lines that are highlighted with a contrast piping create a slimming line and the cutaway neckline is really flattering. Perfect for boosting post-pregnancy confidence. I paired it with a pair of purple Next heels et voilà, I felt like my old self.
