I know that in these past few #bumpstyle posts, I’ve made a point of highlighting certain fits and silhouettes that are pregnancy-friendly (aka: roomy, flattering and will grow with your belly). Today, I’m going to say there is something you should always keep in mind while taking these tips to heart. While dressing for your figure (ahem belly) is smart and will save you a quite bit of dressing room-frustration, ultimately, a pregnant woman should dress in what makes her feel good. Take this tiered dress, for instance. There is really no rhyme or reason as to why I feel great in it- maybe it’s the print, or the feminine ruffles, or the long sleeves that cover my least favorite “asset.” Regardless of the reason, I feel like a lady in this dress. I love everything about it, and I’m thankful that it is one of the few non-maternity dresses in my closet that still fits my pregnant figure!
The dress I’m raving about is a last-year, Chloe-inspired H&M find, but I’ve linked to some dresses below with very similar fits. As a contrast to the feminine silhouette of dress, I paired it with my favorite Sam Edelman suede fringed ankle booties (which are on sale now!) and styled them with black socks to add a little bit of height to my calf. Lastly, I accessorized this look with a neon-strap Michele watch for a pop of color (similar strap here), some large gold filigree earrings for a metallic accent, and my favorite Rimmel lipstick.

So, ladies- tell me, do you have a “feel-good” dress?
