Bloat-Friendly Dresses For Weddings

As my mum never fails to remind me, everyone seems to be getting married this summer. From early July onwards, I’ve got ceremonies in the diary every weekend, and I need outfit inspo, stat!

When searching for occasion dresses, I mainly focus on one thing: comfort. I need something that can accommodate several rounds of canapés, a three-course meal and copious quantities of bubbly. I’ll be looking out for details like elasticated waists, adjustable belts or stretchy fabrics.

If you’re also on the hunt for bloat-friendly wedding guest dresses, I’ve pulled together my fave pieces from the site that combine style with comfort. Happy reading!

Prints are your friend

Busy prints are an easy way to hide a bloated tum, and this flattering wrap dress comes in a gorgeous mix of colourful florals. You can also easily adjust the fit as the night goes on, tying the dress loosely at the side for added comfort. I’d style with neutral accessories – think nude or white heels and a matching mini bag.

Shirt dresses for the win

If you prefer maxi lengths, this vibrant floral shirt dress would be my top pick. Buttons and a tie-waist mean you can adjust both the fit and the neckline, and the subtly pleated skirt will help conceal bloating. Pair that vivid print with nude or metallic heels, and get ready to catch the bouquet.

Wraps won’t let you down

Wrap dresses are one of my favourite styles to wear on days when bloating might pose issues. This floral maxi dress not only creates a flattering silhouette, but it also provides you with some extra leeway – it’s super easy to loosen the tie-waist if needs be! Wear this floral option with blue or green heels for a chic tonal look.

Ruched waists really work

Dresses with ruching around the tummy are guaranteed to flatter your figure and camouflage food babies. The floaty Venetian Dreams tunic comes in a figure-skimming fit and has a ruched waist too! I love the print on this one – it’s so pretty, and it’s perfect for summer weddings. Complete the look with simple nude heels.

The most loved midi

The bestselling Bardot midi dress is a popular choice amongst shoppers for all sorts of fancy events, and it’s an ideal option for weddings in every season. It comes in a comfy fabric that feels lovely on the skin, and the ruffle details hide bloating like pros. Plus, it comes in loads of other colours, from spicy orange to royal blue and suit-all black.

Sasha Midi Dress, Black Multi by Jolie Moi | £75

The sleek Sasha midi may look structured (and it does cinch your waist for an hourglass figure), but it actually comes in a stretchy material that’s both forgiving and flattering. Loosen the ties at the back for added comfort, and finish the look with white heels and a glass of champers.
