what to wear to a lawyer interview during the 3rd trimester?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I got an interview for a 1/2 time job that I am really excited about.  The interview isn't until the end of the month, meaning that I will be like 35 weeks pregnant at that point.  I am a lawyer, I haven't been working for the last year and I don't have formal maternity cloths.  The job is at a Legal Aid in a small town so it is about as casual as a lawyer job can be.  Do people think I have to buy a maternity suit?  It seems like such a waste to wear it once.  Someone else suggested a dress shirt with black pants and a cardigan?

On whether you need to wear a suit or not, probably others are better help than I, since I'm in a different industry. (Where suit wearing in interviews is mandatory. And pregnant bellies are interview death ... sigh ;)

 

But if you decide that you want to wear one, you might be able to buy/borrow one used. Or, you could buy one new and then resell it. Then it will be worn more than once, one way or another ... just a thought. : )

I work in a biglaw firm and even though we have a "business casual" dress code like most big law firms every single lawyer interviewing here wheres that boring interview suit. However, given the circumstances I think that while you need to dress formally, you needn't wear a suit.

 

Something like this with class accessories and heels if you can manage them would be fine:

And as long as the neckline isn't too low, which plauges many maternity dresses
