We trawled the shops to bring you dresses to make you feel more fabulous — and crucially, comfortable — throughout your pregnancy. Luckily, the choice for pregnant women is getting better. But there are also some more luxe labels, like HATCH, which was founded in by Ariane Goldman, a former Wall Street maven, who wanted to create chic, timeless styles that you can wear at every stage. A cool Seventies, boho aesthetic makes for desirable velvet print jumpsuits, simple dungarees in a range of colours and runway-worthy frocks with lust-have prints and detailing galore. Look out for their new collection too, which launches in March. With everything designed and made in England, the brand has an emphasis on sustainability and ethical fashion.
Older moms may need maternity business suits or cocktail dresses, but teen maternity clothing needs to be high-style and fun. Whether the pregnancy was planned or accidental and whether a young mom is getting ready to have a family or planning for adoption, teens can keep up their fashionable looks with junior maternity clothes and modern styles the whole nine months. Teens' bodies are still developing. That's why "juniors" size clothes are cut differently from "ladies" sizes. Maternity clothes designed for older women may not fit quite right, and it may take some shopping around to find the right look. In addition, teens may not be ready for grown-up styles.
