Advice on Pregnancy Style

Julie from gives some advice on Pregnancy Style to a mum who loves fashion and wants to know what to wear for the party season:

Dear Julie
I’m six months pregnant and my bump is making itself seen! I love fashion and up until now, I’ve been buying the same clothes I would normally choose but in a bigger size – but now I’m getting bigger, do you have any suggestions about what to wear for the party season? I’ll be almost seven/eight months gone at that stage but I still want to enjoy myself! I don’t want anything very tight fitting but have you tips about what to wear?

Hi Debbie,
As your gorgeous bump grows you need good shape, support, comfort especially & confidence for the party season!

I recommend a website called where you can hire out party wear – e.g. the Holly Dress as shown. A great alternative to spending lots on dresses that you won’t get a lot of wear from!

Invest in a good wrap dress, which will be a super addition to your Christmas wardrobe. You can team with heels if you’re going out or with comfy flats during the day.

You can also check out who have a good range of dresses adorned by the likes of Gwen Stefani & Angelina Jolie with reasonable prices. If you like one particular shaped dress they usually stock it in a range of colours also.

On the high street I do love Topshop Maternity for basics and always look at the fabric before you buy. A nice firm fabric with good support will keep you comfortable & stylish in those final weeks.

Happy Shopping!
