Memorial Day weekend signifies that summer is almost here! Hooray! Time for ice cream, swimming, and maxi dresses! We love maxi dresses for pregnant women because the look great on the pregnant body and feel comfortable too. However, there are a few things to consider when buying a maxi dress.
* Choose a light and airy fabric rather than a heavy or thick jersey. Sitting in the hot sun will make you extremely warm with all that fabric, so look for lighter weight fabrics such as cotton or a light modal.
* Some women would prefer to buy non-maternity clothing for the majority of their wardrobe if they can. We warn you, however, that doing this when purchasing dresses is a no-no if you are well into your pregnancy. The reason is that your belly lifts the dress length up several inches making the overall look of the dress appear uneven. If you are worried about spending too much, look out for killer deals like the ones we have going on right now on Target.com. All of our dresses are selling for under $35!
*Try to avoid maxi dresses with tiers that go across your belly.This will make your belly appear larger. Rather, look for a dress that either has no tiers or a few longer tiers to give that belly some room!
* Consider the size of the straps on the dress. If you are nursing or wearing thicker bras, consider a maxi that has wider straps or a flutter sleeve so that you do not have to wear layers under your dress. When the weather is warm, it is best to stay cool and not over dress so you will not get over heat.
Have a great day!
