I am attending a wedding tomorrow. I have two possible dresses to wear, both of which show off my bloated belly! What do you think I can do to hide it? I was thinking about draping a pashmina over my shoulders and letting it hang down over my belly. Any other ideas?

Here are the two dresses I have to choose from:

New Women Long Sleeve Sexy Party Mini Dress Club Wear Tops Shirt Black C182 | eBay

2012 Sexy Beige Cross V Neck Chiffon Sleeve Cocktail Party Club Evening Dress | eBay

I personally love the black one, it's super sexy! But for a fall wedding I think the second one is a little more modest and may hide a bloat a tad better. What did you end up choosing?

I have NO clue because I probably couldn't fit into those two dresses and I'm a tiny girl HA! What did you end up doing?

I like the 2nd one better and it has extra fabric around the tummy that might hide bloat better

I didn't wear either one! lol

I went for a black "bandage" dress. The extra fabric did hide my pooch a bit. Also, I wore a pashmina around my shoulders the whole time. I think having it flow over my midsection helped, too. At this early stage, I'd say no one noticed.

I could've killed the bartender, though. I asked him to make me a drink that looked alcoholic but wasn't. (Hubby said I didn't have to worry, that no one would notice what I was drinking, but I knew better.) The bartender made me a Shirley Temple! In what world does a Shirley Temple look like an alcoholic drink?!? And, of course, someone asked. I just shrugged and ignored the question.

I KNEW my lack of drinking would be commented on, though.

I had a wedding last weekend and I drank cranberry juice. Everyone assumed there was vodka in it

Awesome - this is what I'll be having next weekend at a wedding I'm going to. Thanks for the suggestion.

Next time order a sprite or club soda with lime. It looks just like a vodka or gin & tonic.

I attended a wedding yesterday. The only thing that kept my bloat unnoticeable was Spanx!

That's funny, Dani! I wonder if we were at the same wedding. I'm in MD, too.
