Getting together a pregnancy wardrobe of maternity casual dresses can be fun. Most of these dresses feature comfortable, easy-to-care-for fabrics, and come in various colors, patterns, and lengths.
Styles of maternity casual dresses
Maternity casual dresses come in a wide range of styles. Some drape over the baby bump while others fit to your shape. Many provide accessibility choices if you plan to nurse, and some styles might still fit you after nursing. Three popular styles in maternity casual dresses are the wrap dress, tube dress, and empire waist.
Wrap or wraparound dresses are flexible from a fit point of view. In this style, most of the selections fall to the knees or just above them. The tie can be snug above the baby bump or loosened for nursing. This flattering style offers a promise of comfort.
The tube dress offers a simple pull-on style that comes in either a fitted or flowing option. Most tube dresses are sleeveless and strapless, for ease of movement in the arms. To nurse, just pull down the tube top, or some styles have a discreet front panel that you can lift for nursing.
An empire waist sits just below the bust and is a popular choice in maternity casual dresses. Attached to the waistband is a skirt that loosely covers the baby bump. This style comes in a variety of length options, from short to maxi.
