Dressing The Bump: 3rd Trimester

Dressing The Bump: 3rd Trimester

I currently live in maxi dresses…It’s my essential item in the pregnancy wardrobe. And the reasons for that are obvious—they are comfortable and there is room for my bump to expand.  But more importantly, they can work with every single body type.

Dressing your bump during your 3rd trimester is somewhat tough—I must admit. These days I’m all about comfort, doing my best to avoid wearing pants. For some reason I feel very much confined in them + it seems too much of a hassle to get them on these days. I’m telling you: The struggle is real, ladies! So, yes, I can’t stop won’t stop with maxi dresses. They are great when not pregnant and amazing when pregnant.


How about you?! What are your thoughts on maxi dresses? Pregnant or not…sound off in the comments below!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a great Monday!

    I only like maxi dresses, not love. Maybe because I haven’t been able to style them in a way that I like yet, but they’re never my first choice. Maybe only for sunny holidays. This one looks great on you though. I love the geometric print.

    I think maxi dresses are pure perfection for pregnant women because most of the times they are looking for fashionable comfort which a maxi dress offers. You look fabulous in yours and am surprised that your beautiful legs aren’t swollen……

    Dear V., how lovely you are, always! I tell you, you really show on the outside the beauty you have on the inside! I loved the pictures, you really look stunning! This dress is marvellous and it suits you so well! I believe that the last trimester is the toughest to find clothes, and I agree with you that maxi dresses are good for anyone and fantastic for pregnancy! I looove maxi dresses and I can say I am always “in” a maxi dress – they are so comfortable and at the same time, practical and beautiful – that’s what i like and I can see you like this too! Especially now that you need to be more than comfortable! This, as I said, is an impressive dress and I loved it with the jacket! Hope you have a very beautiful and sweet week, dear V.! Hugs and kisses!

    This is such a chic look, loving the statement print and the leather jacket gives it that contemporary edge. I went through a period of wearing maxi dressses, I’ve kinda stopped because I realised that midi dresses suit my figure better buuuuut having said that I do still love to float around in ankle length kaftans. Have a lovely start to your week Bella. Xx

    I can only imagine the struggle of finding the right fitting clothes when you’re in the third trimester. This is a gorgeous dress.

    I absolutely LOVE this maxi dress! The print and colors are so beautiful and I love the way it looks paired with the leather jacket and those sunnies, adding an edgy twist. You look gorgeous, my friend! I can imagine how tough it must be wearing jeans during the 3rd trimester, I’m definitely looking forward to embracing dresses when I get there too, lol! I hope you’re having the absolute best start to your week so far, beautiful!
