Disclosure: Some items in this post were gifted to me for review by Pink Blush Maternity. All opinions are 100% my own as I like to share brands I am truly passionate about with my readers.
There really is some truth behind the concept that with each subsequent pregnancy after your first, you feel so much more prepared and put together. Although I haven’t delivered yet, I have noticed this definitely applies to my style. It really is silly to invest thousands of dollars in a temporary wardrobe, so I have been all about carefully selecting key pieces of maternity wear along with classic non-maternity pieces that can be worn while pregnant or not.
Enter this dress from Pink Blush maternity. OMG you guys. This gorgeous red lace dress that feels like it was made perfectly for my body now and my body later. At 8 months pregnant, it can be difficult for even the most confident mama to feel sexy and glamorous with her widening waistband. For my body type (I am an average 5’4” with curves on top and bottom) I find that body hugging styles flatter my figure while pregnant the best. Material is also key. The combination of the bump-hugging fit and elegant lace overlay of this classic red dress is exactly what my closet needed for a Valentine’s date night before my February 12th due date. To be honest, this dress will be on repeat with different accessories this whole holiday season – Christmas, New Year’s, and my 31st birthday. It also comes in 12 different colors. Want pink or blue for a gender reveal? Done and done.
I find that 3/4 length sleeves are super flattering during pregnancy. Sometimes I am not so sure my tricep area gets the memo that there is no need for them to expand when I am pregnant! The sleeve length on this pretty maternity dress is perfect for hiding this problem area. I also love the hem length, just below the knees since it both keeps me warm AND covers my legs (legs – we have to have a talk too!) while adding a classy sexy sophistication.
Pink Blush has been kind enough to offer my readers and followers the chance to win a $75 gift card to shop their online store! The perfect amount for a certain aforementioned holiday dress…ahem cough cough wink wink!
