Shopping for maternity wear can be a tricky business.  Whilst you want to look great and feel comfortable, you know that you’ll only use the clothes for a relatively short period of time and may struggle to justify the cost vs use.  To that end, the choices you make need to be the right ones.  Make sure you invest in items that will see you through, wardrobe staples that can be dressed up or dressed down, used after pregnancy and for subsequent pregnancies.

Whether you’re pregnant or not, the maxi dress has become a fashion staple for summer. Great for the beach or for parties, formal or informal and so easily smartened up or toned down with the right accessories, the maxi suits any shape and covers a multitude of lumps and bumps! Lengthening your silhouette and accommodating your changing shape, if you are pregnant, then a maxi dress ticks all the boxes; comfort, style and elegance it has it all!
