FINDING THE PERFECT DRESS TO DRESS YOUR BUMP

At the mention of “maternity wear”, images of tent-like dresses and often unsightly elastic panels come to mind. When dressing for a formal or black tie event, everyone wants to look smart and feel confident.This is particularly difficult for mummies-to-be, due to our ever-changing body shape.

Here are some ideas for nesting mothers who want to dress easily and comfortably but still want to look chic.

 


 

1.Simplicity is Key

Elongate your body by keeping to solid colours and long lines. Flowing dresses are a more forgiving style, falling gracefully over your bump and giving you more comfort and ease as well. Contrary to popular belief, wearing more accessories does not distract from your pregnancy.  Minimize on accessories to highlight the best accessory- your baby bump.

 


2.Wrap it Up
Many people think wearing bodycon clothing make you look bigger than you are. On the contrary, it’s one of the most flattering shapes. A wrapped style is especially forgiving and should be a staple in all maternity wardrobes.
Wrap dresses are also the most versatile as you can wear it throughout your pregnancy, emphasising on your curves and minimising your flaws.

 


 

3.Show some Skin

For most mummies to be, clothing is usually preferred to be less revealing to conceal bloating and less flattering areas of the body. Many think showing skin usually refers to decolletage, midriff or legs, but there is one area that is often forgotten.
Backless gowns are a classy way of making you feel more alluring, and has a lesser chance of letting you suffer any wardrobe malfunctions.

THE BEST GLAMOUR DRESS FOR YOUR FLAWS

All women want to look their best, especially when the occasion calls for it, such as when the dress code dictates you have to don an evening gown. Like most women, you will probably be interested in minimising your “figure flaws”.

Style Lease, shares some tips on selecting the best dresses for each concerned area you may have, to best flatter your figure.

If your area of concern is flabby arms:

Fret not if you don’t have perfectly toned biceps and triceps, sleeved dresses or pieces that incorporate a cape would help hide your flaws.

If your area of concern is having broad shoulders or being busty:

Most women are the object of envy when they have broad shoulders or a large bust. However, not all kinds of styles flatter these assets, and in particular, you should avoid pieces with heavy detailing on the top and halter neck styles as they will draw attention to your areas of concern.

Instead, choose a mermaid style dress with a defined corset to accentuate your bust would be ideal. Alternatively, pick a piece that has diagonal details at the top or one that has cut out shoulders to create the illusion of a more proportionate figure.

If your area of concern is a flabby tummy:

This is one of the areas that most ladies are concerned about, but the good news is that there are still many ways to look fabulously stylish. There are many styles that are flattering – layering, vertical lines, asymmetrical tops, drapes, peplums add structure to your figure with more defined bust and waist areas and cover up the tummy area.

If your area of concern is large and curvy hips:

Sexy and feminine hips are definitely a good asset, but pieces with a maxi cut won’t flatter your feminine figure. If you have a curvy bottom, you will want to draw the attention away from your bottom half. Pick dresses with a high slit that show off your legs or those with an A-line silhouette and flowy empire waist cut.
