Heavily pregnant, just gave birth, still breastfeeding? If you’re not yet back into your favourite dress, there’s NO reason why you can’t look GORGEOUS for any upcoming parties and festivities!
We’ve rounded up the best options for you to SAVE TIME and feel like a STAR!
We’ve picked outfits for you away from general stores and specific pregnancy departments to show you what can be achieved through different styles.
Swingy Trapeze Dresses
This shape is both elegant and kind to your mummy tummy! Whatever your size or height this style of dress is very flattering as it doesn’t cling to your stomach bits, perfect if you’re not quite ready or don’t wish to lose baby weight. This Wallis Purple Swing dress would make for a glamorous part frock!
Chiffon Layered Dress
Another lovely style is layers! Found in House of Fraser and on Lyst.com, these are embroidered and easy to wear after pregnancy, leaving you feeling very comfortable amongst your mummy duties as well as being out!
Trousers with Loose Blouses
If you don’t fancy a dress, or have a less formal festive event, a combination of trousers with a gorgeous TOP as your main focus can be very dazzling yet comfortable. This top found on Ebay takes our fancy!
Dressing for pregnancy means we need clothes kind and comfortable for all areas of our growing bodies! We think that these maternity outfits are both kind to our mummy tummies and bottom as they give a light freedom to these body areas.
Maternity Tunic Dress
Maternity Skater Dress
Want to look informal but still gorgeous? This combination of maternity trousers and top is just for you!
Breastfeeding in public unfortunately requires careful planning of the top half of clothes! It can be hard to find practical breastfeeding styles when you need to go and breastfeed at a party, so we’ve picked out some great styles for you to have a look at!
Front Zip Dresses
This front zip print dress makes for the perfect breastfeeding dress and if you’re conscious of zipping too far down to reveal your chest, just pop on a strappy top underneath or a matching coloured maternity bra.
Fancy something a bit more Diva’ish? If you’re looking for something more outgoing here’s a lovely front zip bodycon dress so convenient for you and your baby to reach when feeding time arrives!
Now here’s a style tried and tested by our very own BeHappyMum team! We love Kimono style as its elegant, very trendy and so EASY to wear! These floral prints are great if you’re fancying a brighter or patterned dress for your Christmas party or general festivities, mothers! We love that you can tie up around the middle, making this more versatile for different body shapes after childbirth.
Layered Chiffon Top
Whether you are in a warmer country like Australia or in the cold UK like us, layered chiffon tops are equally as practical for breastfeeding, just pick one with the appropriate material and thickness. We love the chiffon top here allowing you to put your own layers on first (recycle your clothes Mums!) and then glam it up with an over-the-top number like this black one.
Don’t forget that so many fashion manufactures are thinking of you. This dress addresses all your needs to look fantastic with a hidden breastfeeding bra underneath.
We’ve picked two of our favourite specific maternity and breastfeeding dresses from specific online maternity stores. Loving this one from BellMama, with pretty lace detail allowing you to pull aside the tunic discreetly and even layer up underneath with a long-sleeved top for a boho look if you wish!
And lastly, Tiffany Rose’s very elegant block-colour breastfeeding dress is not only a knockout for your festive outing, but just as good as a mummy treat to wear on Christmas Day! Because we work hard enough making everyone else’s day special, it’s only right you feel great too!
