Japanese Weekend is really at the forefront of integrating functionality and fashion in maternity wear. “Maternity” is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind when you see a Japanese Weekend dress. This Japanese Weekend Button Sleeve Maternity/Nursing Dress combines a flowing design with a flattering shape. The brown band lifts up so you can look stylish and nurse discreetly. It has button detailing on the sleeve and an elastic trimmed neckline that can be worn off the shoulder. This dress is fun to wear and great for any summer event.

Another great dress for spring and summer is the Maternal America Asymeretric Ruffle Dress. The fabric has a cheerful floral pattern and light cotton-like feel. This dress features a faux one shoulder neckline design, with bra-friendly straps. The empire waist with elastic fitting below the bust is easy to wear for all stages of your pregnancy. Throw on a cardigan and wear this dress to a party or baby shower.
Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump is pregnant! Known for her appearances on her father’s show The Apprentice, she is the second oldest of Trump’s five children. Trump’s son Donald Jr. and his wife Vanessa have two kids: Kai 3, and Donald Trump III, age 1. Ivanka is expecting her first child with husband Jared Kushner, whom she married in 2009. She shared the news on her Twitter page in January, writing “I’m pregnant!” and “Jared and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Ivanka has her own line of jewelry and a new shoe and handbag line. Pregnant Ivanka was recently promoting her shoe line at a mall wearing a slimming black outfit. At 6 months, it is almost impossible to notice her baby bump! As a business woman, Ivanka often has a “professional look” even while pregnant.
If you want to capture this career mom style, go for classic pieces like Ivanka. She was seen wearing a flattering maternity top, a simple black knee-length skirt, and a pair of flats (how comfortable!). A babydoll style maxi length dress is another good silhouette for mom’s to be.
At a more formal event, Ivanka Trump was photographed wearing an empire waist black dress with metallic details. The Maternal America Gold Band Maxi Dress is very similar, so you too can dress like an heiress!
One of the most essential items in any woman’s wardrobe is the little black dress. The Olian Maternity Black & White Dress is a great way of doing the classic with a little flair. As a shift dress, it is always in style. It is the perfect go-to option for your little black (and white) dress. Depending on how you accessorize, it can go from work to evening (or day) dress-up. The color black is slimming and will accentuate all the positives to your new figure.
Pregnant Kate Hudson, 31, and father of her baby, Matthew Bellamy, 32, have been enjoying time together on a “baby moon” in Mexico. It has become popular for celebrities to spend this last ‘hurrah’ vacationing before the baby arrives. This is Kate’s second child (and first with Bellamy). Kate Hudson caught a lot of attention at a resort in Cabo this March wearing a skimpy bikini with a scarf wrap. Tagging along on the beach was Kate’s son, Ryder age 7, and ex-husband Chris Robinson. A friend of the family said “Kate is happy for Ryder to finally have a brother or sister.”
If you are lucky enough to spend some time soaking up the sun before the big day, being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t have cute swimwear. If you want to bare your baby bump like Kate, the Japanese Weekend Bikini with Sarong Set is a great option to be the envy of everyone at the beach or pool, if they’re pregnant or not! The sarong wrap makes a flirty skirt that can be tied for the perfect fit.
If you prefer a little more coverage, I recommend a tankini in a colorful print that accentuates your body in the right places. The Jenni Tankini from Maternal America is a great choice.
Kate was also seen draping her belly in a cool and comfortable gauzy maxi beach dress. The Beach Maternity Nursing Dress from 1 in the Oven is a similar look that captures this celebrity’s style.
One of the hottest looks, not only in maternity fashion, but for all women is the wrap dress. The wrap dress works so well in maternity because it is both figure flattering and easy to adjust to fit you perfectly throughout your pregnancy. The Cap Sleeve V-Neck Tie Maternity Dress from Olian Maternity is a great example of this style. It is so versatile it can be worn during and after pregnancy. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable and the cap sleeves will make your arms appear slimmer. Jewel tones like this fuchsia are very popular among celebrities, and for good reason as they look great against any skin color. Dresses from Olian Maternity are super versatile because they can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
