Of course the LBD is a classic and flattering for every figure, but I love a LWD too! The bodycon or side-ruching detail is so popular right now and easily works for maternity or non-maternity because of how it accentuates the female figure, no matter what your body type is. Because of this, it makes for an easy wardrobe staple that can be worn no matter the season –particularly in Southern California where it doesn’t get THAT cold.
This is a very basic Amazon dress that is NON-maternity but obviously fit my 9-month bump easily (I did size up to a Medium). I was specifically looking for a midi length dress, because I can move around freely and not worry about the dress hiking up and getting too short. I have some of the mid-thigh dresses and I am constantly pulling them down or shielding my under-there region. With an active toddler, the midi length is the way to go. This white dress is a little shear, but nude undergarments, a slip, or throwing a kimono or cardigan over top will remedy that. The dress comes in a lot of great colors and sizes from XS-XL too (size up)!
It’s so easy to add some layers, different colors or patterns, to influence the overall vibe of the dress. My favorite look is to add a simple kimono for the summer or to add a graphic tee on top to break up the color and emphasize the baby belly. You could easily tie a sweater over your belly to make the dress last into the colder months as well. What’s your favorite look?
