What style of formal dresses will work well for hiding my little friend? I'm sure, Summerstorm, your the expert! LOL! My sil is getting married and if she gets married here (she wants to elope but her man is having a hissy) then I'll have the dubious honor of being a bridesmaid. I've not dressed up in ages let alone formal wear!! She wanted to know what I could wear but I'm not really sure... Help me!!

this kind of dress will work, also dresses that have bows that you can tie in the front work

I like any dress or outfit with a long, flowy, lightweight jacket. I also wear spanx underneath which hides any bulge if the pouch fills up. I wore outfits like this for both my daughter and sons' weddingg.

I'm surprised that graphite color one wouldn't work. I thought someone had said empire waisted dresses did well to cover? Thank you so much! If any of the rest of you ladies want to weight in I'm all ears!

I have a tight black dress that I wear with my bag. I purchased tight spandex underwear from Wal-Mart for $10.00 and they hide the bag well. Plus, they make my butt look smaller and I like that! I was nervous about the bag getting smooshed so I kept checking it every hour. But my bag was fine...I was worried over nothing.

jen that empire waisted one might have worked, for someone with a smaller chest than me, but it just hung funny on me, and ended up with the bag showing
