My quest, people, is to find other full-length options. You know, so I can have "options." Has anyone else been in a bridal party when they were pregnant? If so, where did you buy your dress? If you made it, I will be very envious of your talents. :)

...I'll be the Round One with Sneakers
In November, one of my best girls from college (undergrad), Julie, is getting married in Mizz-oor-ah (Missouri, for those of you who aren't related to Great Grandma Jones). She is one of the kindest people in the world. And so I can continue my pursuit of the Guinness World Record for bridesmaid appearances, Julie asked me to be her Matron of Honor.
I'm so flattered and beyond excited for my girl. As I said, she's faboo. Her husband-to-be is smart, handsome and witty. Not to mention tall ~ about 6'05". Julie's about 6'00", so their kids are going to be giants! Awesome.
Julie has four sisters (all tall), so she most certainly didn't have to ask me to stand up with her. And I KNOW that this day isn't at all about me, but I've got to figure out how to get a red, floor-length gown that's not going to look like a burlap sack on me. Is that possible, do you think? Here's an awful picture of me from last Friday. I looked suspiciously pregnant that day (the round belly comes and goes; no one told me about that) and my word, the boobs ... and the scowl, please overlook the scowl.
Here's the only full-length maternity gown David's bridal has. It's very pretty ... but I also realize the model is a size 2.
