Bump Friendly Dresses


This post took me forever. I've been searching my favorite sites these past few days trying to find bump friendly dresses for special occasions. It's harder than you think! It's even harder when you can't physically try non-maternity dresses on to see if they would work with a pregnant belly but I did my best and to be honest every pregnant woman carries differently and it's going to be trial and error. So if you see a style you really love you might want to order a few different sizes to see if it will work! With that said the three dresses pictured in the post were all my regular size and fit really well. I could have probably sized up with the Poupette St. Barth dress to get me through the whole summer but I wanted to be able to wear it again next summer and went with my normal size. The Vince dress is so beautiful in person and would be perfect for a baby shower. I love a pretty white dress and this one will fit right up until delivery. My Ronny Kobo dress is also a good one and very stretchy. It's extremely comfortable and I think a good knit dress is a summer staple.

I tend to gravitate more towards non-maternity pieces when I'm shopping and I always try to see if the piece is something I can continue to wear when I'm not pregnant. However, there definitely comes a time when you have to wear maternity styles.  A Pea in the Pod is having a massive summer sale right now and I have a few dresses in my cart- this one, this one and this one.

A few notes about the dresses I've rounded up below::

  • Some of the dresses have a separate tie belt you can take completely off of the dress and sit it comfortably above your belly. 
  • There are a few different types of dress that will work with bump:: 
    • fitted and stretchy: this is a splurge for sure but would be so pretty for a baby shower- would definitely size up in this brand. And of course, I love the style I have by Ronny Kobo
    • loose and breezy: love both this style and this style. 
    • empire waist or a tied waist:  This Rebecca Taylor one is currently on sale and my sister has it. It's so pretty and I might order one for myself. I tried on two sizes up and it fit pretty well. This Wayf dress would also be so pretty for a baby shower- it comes in a blush shade and a blue shade! Also love this Wayf style as well.  I'm not 100% sure how this style would look but I really love the color and the print- I might order it today and see what it's like! 
  • If you are having a baby shower later on in your pregnancy and think you will definitely need a maternity style dress I love these ones:: one, two, three (in white). 
Shop all of my picks below! And I'll definitely keep you updated when I find some more good ones! xo Chrissy
