I’ll be a bridesmaid and eight months pregnant for a family wedding in September. I ordered the dress this evening and was told to order three sizes larger than my current size. I figured I’d need a size or two larger, but I’m pretty surprised that they suggested such a large dress. The dress has an empire waist, but the assistants at the shop said there is very little give in the waist and bust.

I was matron of honor when I was 6 months pregnant and I did have to buy a second dress because the one the bride bought me didn't fit just a couple months after she bought it. It isn't really just the weight you gain, it's how your body changes- mostly your boobs, to be frank! :) I would recommend getting the larger dress, mostly because it is more important for you to be as comfortable as possible that far into your pregnancy.
