Hot looks that won’t upstage the bride (much…)
We’ve tracked down the best maternity dresses for you to wear to your best friend’s wedding. In these beauties, “Here Comes The Bride” might just become “Here Comes The Bride’s Stunning BFF!”
Embrace your inner flower child with this beautiful silk maxi dress from Séraphine (£99). Über feminine, it’s also a hit with celebs such as Hollywood goddess Halle Berry and Sherlock’s – ahem – Benedict Cumberbatch’s missus, Sophie Hunter. Its drawstring neckline means the dress can be worn as a halterneck or tied around the bust for a strapless look.
If you want to go for a shorter hem, you might like Asos’ offering. The cut of their Scuba Bodycon dress (£45) is just demure enough to make fellow guests think you’re demure. But turn around and there’s a party in the back, with its cheeky cutout detail.
For Pleats Sake!
We’re loving this colour-block number by Rock-a-Bye Rosie from Debenhams (£120). The one-shoulder dress’ lightweight chiffon fabric will drape delicately and beautifully over your bump.
From Mamalicious, check out this Joulie dress, available from John Lewis (£55). Silky and comfortable with a bandeau neckline, the shift dress can be worn during and after pregnancy.
Everything’ll be just peachy in this Bandeau Cocktail midi dress from Asos (£48). Its detachable straps enable the dress to be worn two ways, depending on your mood. You can also wear it all throughout your pregnancy.
When life gives you lemons, wear this Debutante skater dress to match them (Asos, £38)! Show off your bump with pride while keeping it sweetly stylish.
And you can’t have lemon without lime, as this Tulip dress would attest to if it could talk (Asos, £45). Its cutout shoulder detail and crew neckline give it a chic elegance you wouldn’t expect at such a fab price.
You can’t go wrong with a bit of lace. Like this gorgeous Blush cocktail dress by Séraphine (£145). Made with a stretch fabric (thank you, maternity fashion gods!), it comes with a silk sash to emphasise the empire line.
Go a little darker in this Rock-a-Bye Rosie Berry lace bodycon dress (Debenhams, £55). This midi-length number, also made with stretch lace, might even make people forget you’re pregnant. We especially love the scoop back detail.
Take things easy in this Ellis tank dress by Isabella Oliver (£85). Available in four cool colours (Deep Blush pictured), you can take the look from casual day to easy elegant evening with some statement jewellery and a killer clutch.
Or check out this simple sleeveless maxi dress with split sides from Asos(£20). Pictured here in Burnt Orange, the semi-sheer jersey has a scoop neckline and a no-fuss style pregnant women will appreciate.
Heads will turn in this Eden gown from Tiffany Rose(£249), but the bride won’t mind. Available in five stunning colours, including Chocolate (pictured), the dress also comes with a detachable sash to accentuate your bump.
Go for a block colour with this one-shoulder Belmont piece from Isabella Oliver (£179). Its fluid draping gives it just the right amount of old-Hollywood glamour.
For the glamour girl on a budget, check out this Emerald Knot Front maxi from Séraphine(£59). Its deep V neckline and waist-tie enhances your gorgeous new figure in all the right places.
