Comfortable Maternity Dresses for Expecting Mums

This is a guest post from my friends at Vertbaudet who, as I found out earlier this year, sell some fab maternity wear.

If you are expecting a baby, you might be feeling more and more uncomfortable, especially if you are still wearing your pre-pregnancy clothes. Some pregnancy mums hold off on buying maternity clothes because they do not want to give up looking trendy just to be comfortable. Fortunately, there are plenty of trendy and comfortable maternity dresses for expecting mums. Vertbaudet features an extensive line of fashion-forward maternity wear for women.

The type of maternity dress you choose may depend on where you would like to wear your clothes. If you need to find clothing for work, you will probably want to stick with modest dresses that give you plenty of room for when your belly gets larger. A simple v-neck style dress with an empire waist can do a lot to slim your silhouette while still projecting a professional appearance. A black sheath style dress with room for a growing belly might also be a good choice for the office.

On the other hand, if you would like to wear your dresses while you are out on the town, you might choose a button-up dress with a dropped waist and short sleeves. You could easily dress the look up by adding boots or strappy sandals and a large bag. Another good choice is a maternity tunic, which you could pair with leggings or jeans for a casual look. A denim coloured maternity tunic dress with a low leather belt is another great option for a night out.

Another factor to consider when choosing a comfortable maternity dress is the time of year you will be wearing it. For the summer, a maternity maxi dress may be ideal since it is light and airy, which will help you stay cool in the heat. Maxi dresses are also a great way to streamline your figure, which may make you feel more comfortable with your changing shape. Strappy tunics are also a good choice for warm weather. Simply wear them with shorts and sandals or, if you are brave enough, wear them all by themselves as a dress.

If you are expecting during the cooler weather such as late fall or winter, it is fairly simple to adapt your maternity dresses for the weather. If you have a short-sleeved dress, layer it over a turtleneck and add a slouchy hat and a pair of boots. A long-sleeved cardigan over a short-sleeved dress might be enough to keep you warm before the weather turns too frigid. But if you prefer a long-sleeved dress, go with a simple crewneck collar dress with long sleeves. Add a pair of thick tights and a low belt to complete the look. You could also layer the collar with a long, chunky scarf to add a bit of flair and to keep your neck warm.
