There are many wedding dresses that are suitable to flaunt your pregnancy, all you need to decide if you want to hide your pregnancy or proudly display it. Once you are clear on that, just follow these tips:
Disguise your Belly
If you prefer to hide your belly, you might want to go with a loose or an A-line dress that will help you conceal your abdomen. Take into account that this will only work if you are stating your pregnancy because your belly is still small. To help you camouflage, choose soft and loose-fitting fabrics which adapt better to your body.Kurt Boomer stylemepretty.com
Show off your Belly
If, on the other hand, you want your pregnancy to be exhibited, you should go for a straight-cut dress. Even better if it has subtle pleats under the breasts. The best dress you can choose is the one that has ribbons on the back that you can adjust—corset like—so you can fit it to your back and let it loose in your belly. All dresses with an empire cut are appropriate to display an advanced pregnancy. Another option is to wear a thigh-fitting dress; however, you must be careful because depending on your ceremony’s theme, your dress may not be appropriate.
Now, when you decide which type of dress you want, you must consider the changes your body will present when you actually wear it. Usually, you will go at least a couple months before your ceremony to get your dress fitted and adjusted. Make sure to remember that your weight and size will increase at least by one (approx. 3.3 pounds) per month.
So, how do you want your wedding dress to be?
