With the likes of High Street stores such as Marks and Spencer and Dorothy Perkins releasing the first wave of their Spring stock, as well as online stores including Vertbaudet and Crave Maternity, we are seeing some beautiful wrap dresses ideal for Spring that are really going to make us feel sunny, even if the sun never raises its head above the clouds.

Maternity Wrap Dress from Crave MaternityAnd the wrap dress is perfect for pregnancy. The wrap style with a tie back enables you to adjust your dress so that you get a perfect fit throughout your pregnancy, but still have the opportunity to let it out a bit when you need that extra space. The tie itself creates definition at the waist line to draw you in, and the v style neckline draws the eye up your body to balance out your growing bump.

We love this ruched sided wrap dress from Crave Maternity which gives your bump even further space to grow and then shrinks back with you after the baby is born so that you can continue to wear this dress as you regain your pre-pregnancy shape.

The gorgeous deep blue colour can be dresses up or down for evening or day wear and the tones used to create this colour are so beautiful that it can be worn by almost anybody.

Recently seen on Amanda Holden, this dress ties at the side rather than the back to draw your eye across the body and further flatten out your growing tummy.

Heavenly Bump Polka Dot TunicOr if you are looking for a more economical design why not try this Heavenly Bump Polka Dot Tunic from New Look which uses the same wrap style but has given it an up to the minute fresh slant using a funky polka dot design that will really put a spring in your step.

This tunic dress can be worn with leggings or tights for the colder days and then can be worn on its own or with cropped leggings or shorts when it starts to get warmer.

The Wrap Dress at Isabella OliverThe maternity wrap dress is ideal for a multi functioning style outfit that can be dressed up or dressed down with differing accessories, shoes and hairstyles and is one of the most popular styles of maternity dress on our site.

The V style neckline of the traditional wrap dress provides definition to your bust and draws attention up your body line giving you a longer sleeker look during your pregnancy accentuating your assets and giving you a neat, comfortable silhouette.

Traditionally cut just on the knee, the wrap cut flatters your bump and skims your body to provide a tailored look that is still extremely comfortable.

Choose from block colours that will accentuate the length of your body and provide a more tailored look or opt for bold patterns for a more fun special occasion dress that is going to add colour and fun to this design.

Look out for:

  • Dresses with an adjustable tie under the bust or on the wrap itself so that your dress will expand with you during pregnancy and then reduce again after the birth to provide you with a flattering style that you can wear until you are back in your standard clothes.
  • Jersey or material with added extra stretch to provide a flattering but comfortable fit.
  • Ruched sides which will provide side detail drawing the eye across your body and giving you the room to expand into your dress as your pregnancy progresses.
  • Differing length sleeves for differing seasons and occasions. Remember you will be warmer during your pregnancy that at other times due to the increased blood in your system so thinner layers that you can add and remove easily will work better than one thick layer which will not be so easy to adjust.
  • Breastfeeding design incorporated into the dress which will making nursing easier and more convenient.

Coordinate with:

  • High heels and sparkling jewellery for night or special occasion.
  • Broad rimmed hats or fascinators look great with a wrap dress as they provide further balance to your figure and extend your body length further.
  • Or add a scarf or sash under the bust and tie at the side or back to create eye catching detail which could add colour or sparkle to your outfit.
  • Use wedges and oversized bags for a funky day look
  • Or keep simple with court shoes for classic maternity work wear adding a maternity blazer for a more formal, corporate look.

Suggested Brands

  • For a standard wrap dress that is going to be both versatile and comfortable, opt for a brand such as Marks and Spencers or for something with a bit more colour, look to Dorothy Perkins for a splash of colour and pattern in your dress.
  • If you are looking for something a bit more special, look out for dresses from Crave Maternity or Isabella Oliver that is going to look and feel incredible during your pregnancy.
