Pregnancy Style - Look 5

Last weekend we were invited to a christening. I panicked as I knew I had nothing to wear. At 32 weeks pregnant I didn't really want to buy a new dress that I wasn't going to wear again. I'm trying to save as much money as I can so buying a dress in a larger size would mean I wouldn't get a lot of usage out of it. Someone advised me to buy something that would be suitable for breastfeeding. Genius idea I thought. 

As per usual I'd left it to the last minute and I had to dash into town the day before the christening to try and find something. Most of my old breastfeeding clothes were from JoJo Maman Bebe so I thought I would try there first. They didn't have a huge selection in store and only had one occasion type dress. The hubby pointed out that even if I bought a more casual style one, it would still look dressy enough with a pair of heels. 

I found this perfect maternity/breastfeeding wrap dress which was £39, wrap dress. I tried it on and immediately fell in love with it. I even managed to buy it in a small size. I think that's proof of how well made it is. 

It's ideal as it's so versatile. It can be worn through your whole pregnancy for every day wear, work wear or evening and occasion wear. You just have to accessorise it accordingly. It also has concealed breastfeeding access so it can be used after pregnancy. The fabric is very comfortable and moves with you. It didn't feel tight in any areas. The skirt isn't a wrap skirt which is great as normally they flap open and you end up showing off your knickers!! You can also tie the wrap part at the front, side or back, therefore making the dress appear different every time you wear it.

I can't recommend this dress enough and thankfully I have checked online and they have it in 3 different colours so I am definitely going to get another one in black, Wrap dress.With the festive period coming up i'm going to need something to see me through all the family and work parties.

Have you bought any clothes from their before? They are my favourite place for maternity wear! It always fits so well.



  1. You look lovely. That dress is so simple but a beautiful shape and it shows off your bump really nicely. I didn't think to buy clothes that could be used for breastfeeding while I was pregnant, I just went for cheapy short term outfits x

  2. You look lovely. Your dress really suits you x

  3. I love this dress. It looks gorgeous on you. You're right! It's so versatile. Hope it was a nice christening x

  4. I like your outfit here. I really like navy/dark blue as it can be worn for almost anything x

  5. Gorgeous dress and you look fabulous. Lovely to see the bump growing. I had a similar style dress when I was pregnant - but what a great idea to get one that will also last you for breastfeeding too. I found it hard while bf to find clothes that were both stylish and practical, but this does both. x

  6. The dress looks wonderful and it's great you'll be able to wear it for breastfeeding.

  7. Really nice dress! Not long to go now cant believe your are 32 weeks already!!! :) :) :)

  8. What a great find! That colour looks so good on you x
