Designer Maternity Dresses for the Green Mother-To-Be
Designer Maternity Dresses for the Green Mother-to-be
Sure, it was exciting (in an Alien-eqsue sort of way) to be growing another human being inside of me, but I found the most fascinating part of being pregnant to be my ever-morphing figure. As a woman who was always light on curves, I never quite tired of greeting that increasingly bodacious woman in the mirror each morning. Finally, I had boobs! I had a butt! And a basketball-sized stomach. But just because I appreciated my new shape, didn’t mean that I wanted to walk around looking like a house covered in an extremely large sheet. I had fashion standards that would not be compromised by impending mammahood.

The queen of maternity strikes again with an organic cotton take on the shift dress ($24.99). Liz Lange’s version of this classic cut provides enough room to stay comfortable all day while remaining pulled together for that second trimester lunch meeting or dinner date. And this one can be dressed up or down with a flashy accessory or a casual pair of shoes.
Outfit yourself with a couple of wrap dresses and you’ll make it through pregnancy without ever visiting the maternity section. Mission Playground’s Willow Dress ($64) will take you from your first glance at the pregnancy test (OMG!) to the day you give birth. Made entirely from organic cotton, this dress will expand with you.
