Our Favourite Little Black DressesWritten by simplymaternity on Friday 14th of October 2011
With the Christmas Party season starting, here at Simply Maternity we have been scouring the stores for our favourite Little Black Dresses to take the effort out of shopping for that perfect party frock.
When you are pregnant, more than ever, it is vital to have a little black party number that is going to work with everything, cover a multitude of sins and make you feel great through the festive season. And we think we’ve got this season sewn up with our selection of the four best LBD’s for your maternity style.
Created in super soft jersey which provides such an elegant line during pregnancy, this dress has a simple but elegant style with a detachable corset for that little extra splash of detail.
Use other colours or diamante details around the bust line when the corsage is not in place to emphasise the gorgeous empire fit and change the look and style of the design to fit any occasion. And with hidden internal bust support, this dress will not only make sure you look good but that you feel great too.
At Â£59 this dress is not the cheapest in our selection but is still well within the budget for most women when they are choosing their signature dress for the party season, and with such a high quality design and fit, this has to be the ideal maternity dress for any party going mummy to be.
For something with a more casual feeling, we love this Knitted Maternity Dress from Mamas & Papas. With a high cotton and wool mix this fine knit dress is warm enough to keep you comfortable but still cool enough for you to be able to wear it all night long.
The three quarter length sleeves are incredibly flattering and are great if you are not feeling very confident about your upper arms as your pregnancy progresses. But the relaxed fit of these sleeves means that you will stay comfortable even if you wear this dress all day long and the arms will continue to remain flexible throughout your entire pregnancy.
Team with thick tights or leggings for a more casual look or glam up with high heels and sparkling jewellery and you have a fabulous but comfortable LBD that is going to really turn heads.
The best part about this dress is that it was brought out in the Spring range at Mamas and Papas which means that right now it is in the Mid Season sale and on offer at Â£24, less than half the original price.
At only Â£19.99, this dress is amazingly economical and looks great. The baby doll design really flatters the pregnant form and the self tie wrap style not only accentuates the bust area but gives definition to your waste and ensures that your dress continues to fit beautifully as your body shape changes.
The shorter hemline on this dress creates a great silhouette to your pregnant form and is ideal if you want to show off your legs during your pregnancy – this style is going to make them look slim, long and lean.
Dress the deep v neck with sparkling jewellery for a great evening look or consider wearing a camisole underneath for smart day or work wear while you are pregnant.
Though you will pay less for this dress than some of the others on this site, just because you are opting for a less expensive style, you still get the soft jersey material and 4% elastane to ensure this dress keeps it shape but remains comfortable throughout your pregnancy.
Worn by Mylene Klass last October at the National Lottery Winners Party and highly recommended by Glamour Magazine, this designer maternity dress is absolutely beautiful and will really have heads turning at any special occasion.
The deep black sheer lace overlays covers the most flattering soft black jersey lining that hugs your outline and provides a beautiful smooth silhouette to your growing body while stretching with you as you progress during your pregnancy.
The low cut under dress brings attention to your shoulders while the lace covering provides a subtle but beautiful covering which provides sophistication and elegance to this Little Black Dress.
Wear with the detachable black sash in any style or leave the sash off completely for another variation on an absolutely gorgeous style.
At Â£169, this dress will certainly stretch most people’s budget but if you want to treat yourself to something extra special or you are looking for that once in a life time gift for your favourite mum-to-be, then Tiffany Rose is a great place to start and this Chloe Dress certainly is worth a second look.

All the dresses above are all available on our site in our maternity dresses section as well as many more suggestions on how to make the most of your maternity figure. So take a look around our site and find the style for you this season and make a splash this Christmas, it will be a year you won’t want to forget.
