I must admit, when I saw this dress, the first word that came to mind was moo moo! But for some reason I was still drawn to it. I'm determined NOT to buy maternity clothes this round, so that means finding regular sized clothes that'll fit my baby bump. There's nothing wrong with maternity wear. I mean, I wore them just fine when I was pregnant 2 years ago but the style options just aren't where I'd like them to be.
As I twirled around in the fitting room, I realized, this dress would look good on any woman! Here's why pleated maxi dresses look good in any size.
When it comes to styling myself, I currently have 2 challenging body features to accommodate; a baby bump and a petite height with long extremities. Not only is my body growing outwardly but in width. So I need clothes that will allow me room to grow and this Vince dress is perfect. It can grow with me through the end of my 3rd trimester.
Regular Through Plus Size
Whether you're into flowing frocks, are hiding a bloated belly, have a medical condition or are naturally voluptuous the vertical pleats give the effect of a floating goddess. Not to mention, it also lengthens your frame as opposed to a horizontal stipe that would accentuate your body's width. The versatility of a pleated dress leaves room for your creativity. Add a brooch, or belt, wear it with flats or heels and dress it up for dinner or down for a chic casual day. It's one of those, I didn't have to try too hard but it looks like I put plenty of effort looks. I wore mine with an edgy studded block heel and denim jacket. An outfit that transitions my summer clothes into fall.
I've found a few pleated maxis for you in the slide show (scroll down).
