PREGNANCY STYLE :: ISABELLA OLIVER

isabella oliver maternity fashion 

During both of my pregnancies, I've never really gravitated much to specific 'maternity' labeled clothing. One, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something that will only fit for a short period of time. And, two, it's hard to find things that are fashionable and not just frumpy.

Then, once I tried on this Isabella Oliver dress...... I mean, it fit like a glove and hugged in all the right places and not in the no-so-right places and made me feel like a million bucks. I was always worried that maternity clothes made you look more pregnant than you really are (and not in a good way), but when well made and tailored perfectly, like this dress, they actually make you look so much better than just wearing a potato sack over your bump. Trust me, there's still a time and place for potato sacks, but when you need to up your game a bit, don't be scared of a little bodycon. I especially like that the print kind of hides that side ruching, that I know is necessary for maternity wear, but all it does is scream 'I'M A MATERNITY DRESS'.

I definitely plan to do a full post on my favorite stores for each category from t-shirts to jeans to dresses to bras... and so on, to wear throughout your pregnancy very soon - so keep a look out for that!
