How to Rock That Baby Bump!

Just because you’ve got a bun in the oven, it doesn’t mean you can’t dress to impress. Mommies-to-be can keep up with the latest trends and feel fashionable, too! Check out stylish ways to rock that bump with these maternity-friendly fashion picks.

Maternity Fitted Dress & Low Boots
Some women hide their growing bellies behind baggy dresses, but according to fashion expert Sadie Murray, a fitted dress enhances a pregnant woman’s shape like no other. “You can definitely wear a fitted dress,” she says. “It shows your cute belly, and a low boot looks great with a dress. When you’re pregnant, your feet swell and it’s important to have a shoe that allows room.”

You can find this leopard dress for $14.99 at Burlington Coat Factory, and the boots for $99 at Crocs.

Maternity Skinny Jeans
“A great pair of bright-colored skinny jeans are all the rage,” Sadie says. “You don’t have to stick to dark colors, mamas, and do not be shy about wearing stripes. They accent the bump, and that’s a plus!”

You can find red jeans like these for $15 at Ross.

Maternity Beachwear
“If you are taking a romantic babymoon trip to the beach, you need this,” Sadie advises. “You want to look sexy in your swimsuit and cover-up, and this hot combo will provide that. The swimsuit hugs all the right curves.”

You can purchase this swimsuit for $90 at A Pea in the Pod.

Maternity Formal Wear
“This gown will make you feel like a million bucks,” Sadie says. “Pregnant women sometimes have a tough time feeling sexy, and if you have to go to a formal event, that puts more pressure on you, but don’t worry, just dress for the bump!”

You can find an evening gown like this for $150 at Bloomingdale’s.
