So I am seeing them on webites and am curious on what size to buy. Any of you ladies know, do you up size by one or buy your same size PP? I kinda fell in love with this one but IDK what size to buy! I'm thinking of going up one because I'm sure in a couple months when the weather is nice enough to live in these I'll be larger around/under my boobs and will need a larger size to fit around that area. But then I worry after PG will it be way too big, I know I wont shrink that fast but still. What do you ladies think?

I'm probably going to be wearing a ton of maxi dresses later on. I haven't looked into them yet.

maxi dresses are the bomb!! and I wouldnt go up in size till you know the sizing of the dress. they vary according to style in my experience. but surely not bigger than 1 size up.

BTW it wouldnt allow to me to open ur link

Honestly if you are wanting to wear it now/in the future id go a size up, your carrying twins and may need a little more room. I always go a size up, I hate when I buy things and the bigger I get it doesn't fit I just did that . You won't shrink immediately after giving birth, it take a couple weeks an depending on how deliver you may want to e extra comfy. I know after dd ( I didn't have a c section) i was still sore in the tummy area and hated anything being on my tummy. Go with what you are comfy with but I love maxi dresses when I'm pg so easy and comfy

I'd go a size up.

I've lived in those things for years and most of mine are starting to tighten up around the belly.

OK I fixed the link, it's too cute not to share! Hmmm, it's an online only dress but maybe 1 size up will be the best plan, can always return it in store. I'll go in store and try on some fo the other maxis im thinking about to see how they lay.

The 1 pair of maternity jeans I got at about 14 weeks already don't fit anymore, too tight now but at the time they were too big.

I have one in that style, definitely go a size up.

Also, even if it is a little too big, they are really easy to bring in.
