Can you believe that we’re at that time of year again when you’re starting to plan what you’ll be wearing to Christmas and New Year parties? Not to mention, all those Spring weddings that have you wondering what to wear…
When I was pregnant, I’d be dreading this time of year as there were such limited choices available – everything was either very mumsy or simply not worth spending the money on. Not only would I only be wearing this dress when I was pregnant, quite possibly, I’d never wear it again during my pregnancy. Anything between $150-$400 was simply way too expensive in my opinion. However, we all know that we still want to look glamorous and gorgeous when we’re pregnant, just like Kate Middleton. Here, she’s relieved to be stepping out during her first trimester after experiencing severe morning sickness. And, she looks divine in this edgy, on-trend Alice Temperley dress. Lucky for Kate, she’s still slim enough to wear a non-maternity option.
However, if you’re in the middle of your second or third trimester, you’re going to need something that will encompass your new curves. Eve of Eden Maternity has a some fantastic inexpensive options that will make you feel all dressed up and ready to paint the town red (as long as you’re in bed before 12pm!)
Our favourite option is this delicate lace spot dress in royal blue. Like Kate, you’ll be right on trend with the lace insert. The beauty of this dress is that it’s only $76 which is less than half the price of most maternity evening dresses. It’s very cute and also wouldn’t look out of place if you wanted something special to wear to dinner or for even to work.
Two other options for mums who are breastfeeding is our Pink Tiered Maternity Evening Dress and the Black/Gold Crossover Dress. The former allows you to nurse your baby discreetly through the under layer having hidden gaps in the fabric. The front of the crossover dress can be pulled to either side and the modestly layer underneath lifted up for breastfeeding.
Thankfully, it’s now easier than ever to shop for maternity evening dresses online in Australia without breaking the bank!
