The maternity-friendly Diane von Furstenberg Kipling Dress is out in two pretty new patterns this season, both of which will liven up the maternity section of your closet. This dress is a first trimester through third trimester through postpartum must-have and you’ll still be wearing it when your baby is a toddler. It is subtly pleated at the base of the neckline, so it allows for gradual expansion without any tugging and pulling. The sleeves are sheer and cut at a 3/4 length, so they look lovely while also offering the upper arm camouflage you might be seeking.
Buy one size up from your normal pre-pregnancy size to ensure you get the room you need to expand, especially considering the fitted black slip liner that accompanies the dress. And to be honest, this is the kind of dress you will be able to wear months after you give birth, even if it’s a size too large for you. Pair it with sky-high platforms and you’ll still have an ideal comfortable, stress-free outfit for a night out once you’re back to your pre-pregnancy size (i.e., no Spanx required under this).
