15 Events Dresses That Work With A Bump

Whether it's a wedding or a christening, finding a dress is hard enough, but factor in a burgeoning baby bump and it's an even less enjoyable task. But we’re here to help, with our edit of the best bump-friendly dresses out there right now – plus, some helpful tips from our resident maternity best-dressed, Laura Wills (aka The Fashion Bug Blog)…
Belts are a great way to accentuate your bump – you can wear one just above your bump when wearing a floaty dress or knit.
Both bodycon and floaty work well with a bump. When I was pregnant, most days I loved to show off the bump, often opting for a fitted midi skirt with a jumper or T-shirt tucked in, but some days I felt like a subtler look and loved wearing floaty dresses.
I loved wearing heels during my pregnancy, but it’s really important to feel comfortable. If you’re wearing flats, an easy way to dress up a look is by adding statement earrings.
Make the most of your bump – for some, it can feel like the pregnancy goes on forever, but it actually goes by really fast when you look back and so just try to enjoy it.
'Show off the parts you feel comfortable with – during my first pregnancy I wore a lot of off-the-shoulder tops and dresses (my ankles were so swollen and I wanted to take the focus away from them!) '
