The skirt portion is an overlapping design that easily drapes over your baby bump and allows an equally flattering flowing look if you are nursing and no longer pregnant.

Reese Witherspoon is never one to disappoint in the fashion arena. So, we are not surprised that she wears her pregnancy well with each advancing month and season. Recently Reese was photographed with this casual but chic grey cotton short sleeve maternity dress which was just tight enough to hug her curves without being constricting or clingy. The dress appears to have side ruching which is a great style feature to look for in a maternity dress as it gives room for your belly to grow comfortably and flatters your bump. Also, the above the knee to mid thigh length is great for this time of the year and allows you a full range of footwear to choose from.
A solid color go-to maternity dress such as this, allows Reese to capitalize on accessorizing. She hits the perfect casual but thoughtful vibe with an artisan necklace, stacked but understated bracelets, a fabulous big leather saddlebag to protect that bump from paparazzi, simple gold hoop earrings and oversized sunglasses. Reese looks glam with a simple low rise ponytail and little or no makeup.

The gorgeous Molly Sims and her handsome husband Scott Stuber announced just last month that they are expecting their first child together, and we could not be happier for the newlywed couple. Always stylish, Molly’s maternity style has been no different. We love her effortless and comfortable choices!
Several weeks ago, Molly was running errands around town in one of this season’s biggest trends: animal print. She paired a stylish leopard print top with a long skirt. Very comfortable yet fashionable, it is a great go-to look. For a similar look, try the Maternal America Maxi Skirt. Its supportive built in belly band is incredibly comfortable, and it works well during both spring and fall.
Earlier this week, Molly appeared at a red carpet premier in a beautiful, color blocked dress. The coral color of the dress was contrasted by the pink band underneath the bust and at the trim. The accent underneath the bust is very flattering and allows her baby bump to be showcased beautifully. For similar color and the same flattering shape, try the Olian Coral Maternity Dress. The fitted tank top design is accented by a grey band beneath the bust and a pretty coral skirt. Comfy and stylish, this can easily be dressed up or down.
Aside from her great style, we appreciate her openness with sharing her pregnancy on her blog. Last month she wrote, “I’ve already been though the morning sickness (every morning from 4 to 6 AM for seven weeks—it was the worst), the strange cravings (I’m looking at you, Kraft Easy Mac) and daily episodes of what I call ‘pregnancy brain.’ But believe it or not, I’m cherishing every moment.” Congratulations to this gorgeous family!
Va-va-voom! Beyonce made her first post-baby appearance on Monday evening to support her husband’s concert and looked as incredible as ever. The first time mother gave birth to baby Blue Ivy Carter just one month ago, but one would never know from her amazing post-baby body. Wearing a bright orange figure hugging dress, she truly glowed.
We love Beyonce’s dress as a great postpartum option as it has several features that are very figure flattering. The V-neck has an elongating effect, which in turn creates a slimming look. The long, vertical center seam helps to enhance this elongating and slimming feel. Ruching across the belly helps to hide any imperfections and adds visual interest. We also love how well balanced this outfit is, as the deep V-neck pairs perfectly with the below knee length hem. Beyonce could not have chosen a better way to celebrate her post-baby body!
We are looking forward to seeing more of Beyonce’s postpartum wardrobe as she begins to make more public appearances. Since she loves to show off her beautiful curves, we think she would look great in a fabulous pair of skinny jeans and a funky loose top. For any rock star mama’s out there interested in a fresh and fashionable look, try the Olian Off the Shoulder Peace Maternity Tee paired with their Long Straight Leg Elly B Jeans.
Congratulations again to Beyonce, Jay Z and their little bundle of joy!
