Marni 3/4 length dress: the fastest route to a seat on the commute

marni 3/4 length dress

We know what you’re thinking. We thought the same. What a cute maternity dress.

Except this model? Not pregnant. And the dress? Not maternity.

That’s right, for the bargain price of £298 you too can appear to have your very own bump! Freak out your boyfriend and your boss, or just use it to get a seat on the long commute. Just don’t be insulted when people ask when you’re due!

    I actually quite like it…. But I think I’d have to cinch the waist in with a belt to avoid the bump issues!

    I like the colour and the pattern – it would look nice if it were fitted. As it is, it is kinda bulgy!

    Why not spend $15 and wear a housecoat instead? At least they come in pretty colors and patterns. Even without the bump, the collar and shoulders are plain and unflattering, and the color is atrocious. Yeech.

    On a more general note, whenever I click to see the original website, inevitably I find that the FP have only picked one of many, many offenders.

      I agree.
      Especially that short grey dress with the zipper down the front is horrible. 249,- Pounds for a shapeless, cheap-looking grey sack???!!!

    It *would* be a really cute maternity dress, though. These designers should start taking tips from the fashion police!
