When it comes to styling the bump, I prefer to wear dresses, especially non-maternity styles that I can wear during and after pregnancy. I’m all about investing in pieces you can wear over and over again, and I didn’t want to splurge on something that I’ll only wear for a few months.
A quick note – Maternity activewear is a must. Your pre-pregnancy leggings will only stretch so far, and you’ll want to be as comfortable as can be when you’re working out or lounging at home.
These are some of my favorite bump-friendly non-maternity outfits I’ve been wearing during pregnancy.
Non-maternity dresses you can totally wear while pregnant
You can’t go wrong with a flowy boho maxi dress. Most Salty Crush dresses have an elastic waistband that stretches to accommodate your growing bump. I also love all the bright and fun prints. The fabric is 100% rayon, so it’s lightweight and easy to wear on hot days.
These are some of my favorite styles I’ve been wearing on repeat.
