Pregnancy Fashion: Contemporary Dresses

No need for maternity with these pregnancy-friendly picks.

Contemporary Dresses for Pregnancy

Dresses are the quintessential, no-brainer fashion item when expecting. Not only are they a complete outfit in one, and can adjust to your changing body with the right fit, but they also cut your morning routine in half. And keep things easy (who doesn’t love that!?). Instead of limiting your shopping choices to styles designated for baby-bumps only, there are a plethora of contemporary silhouettes that work pre-, during and post-pregnancy. 

Key objectives to consider are:

  • Fabric: Go for flexible fabrics with stretch such as spandex, cotton or lycra to accommodate your changing shape.
  • Length: Choose knee length styles (or longer) which will slowly creep up as your belly begins to emerge.
  • Color: Dark colors like black, grey, navy and hunter green create the illusion of a slimmer silhouette and will help to conceal your belly button when/if it pops.
  • Shape: A clean, basic shape without defined seams won’t limit you as your breasts and belly become larger.
