Maternity Dress

After the initial excitement about getting pregnant has passed, the realisation sinks in that – at least until maternity leave starts – you still have to leave the house and look at worst presentable, and at best, fashionable and stylish. Unless you have the luxury of working from home in your pyjamas, and plan on not socialising for the next nine months, stylish maternity wear should be high on your list of priorities.

Nothing is easier to wear during your pregnancy than a dress that will not only adapt to your changing shape, but dress up or down, depending on whether you’re heading out to work or play. For a seasoned internet (or high street) fashion shopper, it can be dispiriting to find that your usual outlets either associate “pregnant” with “frumpy and shapeless”, or worse still, stock nothing at all!

One terrific solution is Style in View – a search engine dedicated to fashion, with a separate maternity dresses section, the choice of stylish and fashionable clothing is like stumbling into a dreamworld. With the option to save your personal wish list, and get email alerts from your favourite retailers, Style in View allows you to shop by brand, style, size, colour, and price.

What’s in stock?

Obviously, the availability of items will vary with the seasons, but to have separates, underwear, outerwear, shoes and accessories all pulled together in one place is a dream if you’re short on time and desperate for something stylish to wear. The selection of dresses is staggering – ranging from plain and simple shifts through to glamorous evening wear, rather than complaining you have nothing to wear, your wardrobe will grow almost as fast as your bump.

Day Dresses

The perfect item of clothing for those mornings when you feel you really have absolutely nothing to wear is a dress. Casual jersey dresses should be a staple of any hard-working wardrobe – pregnant or not – and bright colours and vivid patterns for the summer months will make warmer weather dressing a breeze. Maxi dresses can be dressed up with cork-soled sandals, or worn with ballet flats for comfort. In light cotton fabrics, staying cool even on the hottest days of the year is easy.

Dressing Up

Pregnancy doesn’t necessarily have to be a barrier to finding the perfect little black dress. The choice, in practically any material you can name – chiffon, silk, lace, and stretchy jersey – is staggering. The option to buy shoes and a matching bag at the same time shouldn’t be passed up either; the less time you have to spend looking for the perfect match in crowded shops is time well spent putting your feet up instead.

So instead of resigning yourself to living in a shapeless sack as soon as your bump starts to grow out of your pre-pregnancy wardrobe, sit down in comfort, and shop the latest fashions to help you get through the next nine months in style!
