Tips for Dos and Don’ts for Dressing a Baby Bump

Do “Add a dash of luxury,” like this bohemian luxe floral maxi  or this Ella Moss number for an edgier look. “Beautiful soft cotton blended with luxe cashmere and smooth silk charmeuse will take you a long way from feeling frumpy and land you into feeling fabulous!” advises the designer.

Do a Kate Hudson and belt right above the bump. “Every mom-to-be no matter how big or small needs to feel beautiful, so accent your assets.”

Do “Think day to evening, work to weekend versatility when using your purchasing power.” Take this navy knit henley dress that can easily work from day to night.  

And for the don’ts:

Don’t “show too much flesh.  Be tasteful not tasteless,” coaches Stafford. I don’t think we need to point out Mrs. Gainsbourg’s photo again for reference.  

Don’t “buy just for the moment.” Ask yourself, “what will suit me throughout my 2nd and 3rd trimesters and still do double duty when I return home with my bundle of joy from the hospital?”

Don’t “over do it. Simple, classic well made pieces will always showcase your positives, hang on your curves nicely and most importantly make you feel good too,” says Stafford. If you need a visual, channel Natalie Portman’s pregnancy style—it’s all about simple designs and classic cuts.
