Also known as a maternity dress, a pregnancy dress is a kind of dress designed to keep you feeling comfortable and confident throughout the duration of your pregnancy.
The evolution of maternity dresses involved two stages, where the needs in each of those stages were quite different. The first maternity dresses were practical, and intended to make the wearer more comfortable. That was during an era when pregnancy was celebrated as a miraculous gift.
By the time the 19th century arrived, pregnancy had become considered an embarrassing condition in many parts of Europe, so people wanted to conceal evidence of pregnancy for as long as they possibly could.
Modern pregnancy dresses in Australia were designed to suit both purposes, being intended for comfort and a certain degree of concealment.
Since legislation was introduced protecting the jobs of pregnant women, the need for concealment is decreased, and it is becoming more common to see tighter fitting dresses for pregnancy being worn.
There is even now a trend starting for more formal styles of pregnancy dresses, allowing people to “blend in” to a corporate environment, even when quite obviously and unmistakeably pregnant.
We are often asked about what styles are the best pregnancy dresses, and really the honest answer is whatever makes you feel the best when you are wearing it. Dress for comfort, dress for concealment, or even dress to proudly show off your pregnant status. It's all good as long as you feel good wearing it.
When shopping for a pregnancy dress online, you need to keep in mind that your body is undergoing a lot of changes in a short time, so you probably will be best to order something a little larger than your normal dress size.
