Avoid really tight tops and choose something you're comfortable in. And have a blast!
    thanks. Noe that you mentioned it I have some cute maternity jeans (I have a small wardrobe for this type of thing) and some chunky black heels. I can pair that with the black blouse Jafo bought me las t Christmas and be cute! THANKS!!

In LA, I probably would have been fine, but at a client party for IT consultants in the South, I probably stood out.
    OMG, phat32!!! I am so going to be making a t-shirt with that phrase on it....Hollywood Trash...I it!

    JAFO: In my experience, jeans are pretty unforgiving of tummy bumps and can make for an uncomfortable night, especially if there's already pressure over the "puffy" area and you plan on eating.

    But, if jeans it is, de-emphasis the area your sensitive over by wearing a kick-ass sweater coat that goes down to the hips, so in profile, you are exceedingly slim. To further cover up your area, but look FAB, also buy a sparkly, wonderful scarf that is tied around your neck and it cascades down the front of you. That way, if you have to open your jeans, to relieve pressure, the sweater coat (fancy, by the way) and the glittery scarf completely hid it.

    If you want to go the dress route, chose an Empire waisted dress that goes directly under the bust line, so it floats over the rest of your body. Carrying a beautiful shawl, held at both elbows rather than over your shoulders, will also allow you to mask any areas you're wanting to hide.
    Still crazy, after all these shears
