Let’s be honest- when you’re pregnant, you’re most likely more concerned about surviving morning sickness than deciding on the perfect dress for a wedding. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to look and feel stylish. After all, you do have that natural glow going on! Sometimes, choosing a fashionable silhouette can be challenging when your belly is growing rounder by the minute. But with these easy tips, you’ll be able to look chic and feel great at an upcoming wedding, baby bump, and all.
Choose an easy silhouette
Of course, you can wear any type of dress you want to rock. However, traditionally, an empire waist dress, whether it’s strapless or not, is a pregnant woman’s dream. Not only will the style highlight the smallest part of your torso, but it’s also a stylish and comfortable choice too.
Other silhouettes that are perfect for pregnancy include a tulip dress, strategically gathered A-line dresses, and anything asymmetrical or with pleats. All these looks highlight your stature and help support your belly in a way that’s both comfortable and fashionable.
Pick a solid colour over print
If you’re self-conscious about your size (even though every size is beautiful), you might want to choose a solid colour instead of a print. Prints tend to scream attention and might prevent your natural curves from truly standing out. On the other hand, wearing a bold colour, whether it’s a gorgeous red, or a classic neutral, like black, is always a stylish and timeless choice.

Choose the best material
Material matters, especially when you’re pregnant and when comfort is key. Avoid materials that constrict your bump or make you feel itchy and sweaty. Instead think of airy and light materials that are both elegant and soft to the touch, like tulle or chiffon. Even stretchy cotton lycra or jersey works too. You want your dress to move with you — not the other way around.
Accessories easily elevate any outfit. Even if you don’t want to buy a new dress, a fashionable statement bag or necklace and earrings definitely adds the right amount of flair. Add a sparkly belt to a flowy dress to define your waistline. Accessories are so amazing because they let you stand out in the best way possible — without even really trying.
Don’t forget the right shoes
When it comes to capping off your outfit with the perfect shoe, you want to make sure you’re keeping your swelling feet in mind. In other words, you might have to forgo your favourite sky-high pumps in lieu of something a little more sensible like strappy platform sandals or a chic pair of kitten heels. Even a stylish pair of sneakers will do!
Pick comfort over style
When in doubt, choose comfort over style. You definitely want to make sure you’re wearing something that will make you feel good throughout the day and night (not to mention something that will be easy to wear after frequent washroom breaks).
Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy, it’s important for you to feel good. And when you feel good, you instantly look good.
