Stylist Summer Maternity Dressing – Is It Possible?
So it’s hot, and you’re pregnant. What do you wear? Eliza was due in January, so I had a whole different winter wardrobe last time.
But this time, I’m pregnant over the summer, and in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s really, really hot (did I mention the weather?).
It’s difficult to find the balance between something that looks good and won’t leave you roasting, isn’t it?
Step Forward, Isabella Oliver Maternity Dresses…
So when Isabella Oliver, makers of stylishly lovely, luxury maternity clothes offered to send me something to review a dress seemed like the obvious hot weather choice.
Isabella Oliver make more high-end maternity clothes, with a more premium price but they’re really well made, and offer smart and stylish looks I really love.
For summer, I picked the Leora Maternity Tunic in French Navy. I did buy a handful of lovely tops and dresses from Isabella Oliver last time round, but as they were all very tight fitting I went for the slightly different option this time
A Perfect Summer Maternity Dress
And do you know what? I love this Isabella Oliver maternity dress. It’s a looser fit, which means it’s comfortable and cool. However, the straps (which you can tie however you like) means it has shape against your bump so is more flattering (if that’s what you want).
it. It’s a perfect summer maternity dress that looks good and isn’t hot to wear. It’s also really flattering, and I always get nice comments when wearing it (or maybe people are just scared of upsetting me?!) And not a dreaded spaghetti strap in sight.
You can tie it at the back – and the models on the site are wearing it this way – but I think it looks better to tie it around first, then at the back, and emphasise the good bits. Especially when you’re packing a giant pillow down your front.
Isabella Oliver Review – What I Thought
Isabella Oliver clothes are slightly pricier than your average high street selection, but they’re really well made and fit so well. I’ve been wearing this again and again so they do work out as worth the money. All my clothes from last time still look pristine, so I’ll be wearing them once it cools down slightly (and this dress, with tights and long sleeves over it). I can also see myself wearing this dress next summer, as it doesn’t scream ‘frumpy maternity.’
The tunic is currently in the sale for a bargainous £41. There’s at least a month left of summer – what are you waiting for?
