Get the Most Out of Your Maternity Clothes With a Convertible Dress

Friday, May 17, 2013
The best way to get the most for your money with your maternity clothes is to buy those that will fit you through multiple stages of pregnancy and beyond. Also it is even wiser to get pieces you love that can double for other sorts of styles. Oftentimes these are just the sort of pieces that can also be worn after your pregnancy because they are so versatile and will both stretch and stay put on your body in a flattering and comfortable way.

This summer season’s top pick is Maternal America’s Convertible Maternity Dress/Skirt. This beautiful ruffled tiered dress can be worn as an above the knee flirty strapless maternity dress, a fabulous flowing casual knee length skirt or a swimsuit cover-up. You can literally wear it anywhere and anyway and look amazing in it.

The elastic smocking is perfect for maternity as it will hug your curves in a flattering way and stay in place over your expanding belly or over your bust. Worn as a maternity dress, the pretty smocking creates an empire waist silhouette that comfortably drapes over your growing baby bump. The fabric is 100% cotton which breathes well in the warm weather and feels soft against your skin and is non-irritating.

This maternity dress/skirt/cover-up piece is an excellent addition to your maternity wardrobe like the gift that keeps on giving. You can continue to wear it in the cooler fall weather, particularly in the Olive Green and Black colors as a maternity skirt

 Another take on this same theme but in a longer version is Maternal America’s Long Convertible Dress and Skirt in turquoise. This particular style doubles as a long full length maternity skirt. There are tiers without ruffles. When worn as a dress it provides a smooth fit across the bust and upper torso but without the smocking. It also features a relaxed casual summer beach look without the effort and doubles well as a cover-up, but in a longer style.

Unless you are Kim Kardashian, you will probably not want to flaunt your baby body at the local beach restaurant without throwing on a cover-up. It’s a great intermediary item to easily get you to the pool or beach and anywhere in between in a casual fashionable and easy way. The cover-up also saves you the hassle of multiple wardrobe changes of getting into and out of swimwear and back into casual clothes.

Maternal America’s Swimsuit Cover-up Tunic is a flexible fashion choice for an item that was designed as a swimsuit cover-up but can also be worn as a casual maternity top or tunic. This piece features a deep V-neck, an empire waist with some smocking and a back sash tie. You can layer it over a one or two piece swimsuit, wear it alone with a little cleavage or over a tank. This cover-up looks great as a casual tunic top over shorts, capris or pants. You will want to wear it to the beach long after you have your baby.

It is better to invest a little more in a few choice items of clothing that can be worn again and again without being easily recognized as the same piece you wore yesterday than buy a plethora of cheaper items that quickly stretch out of shape and lose their appeal. During pregnancy you want to enjoy the way you look and embrace your curves as well as your sense of fashion. Choose items that can easily transition with your body and with your venue.
