PF has been waiting and waiting and waiting for Fragile Maternity’s newest collection to pop up in various U.S. boutiques, with no luck until this week. Bump Brooklyn has received its first dress from Fragile’s delightful winter collection, the Silk Double Pleated Dress in a subtle orange polka dot print. Cut from 100% silk, the dress has 3/4 sleeves and is similar to Fragile’s classic silk maternity cocktail dresses, which are always the highlight of Fragile’s winter collections. These dresses are holiday party appropriate, but they also work for daywear layered with a knit cardigan or blazer.
I do want to point out that Fragile’s silk maternity dresses are never lined. These pieces are cut from very fine silk and to line them would actually take away from the slinky texture and fit of the garment. They are best worn one size up from your pre-pregnancy size, with a silk slip underneath, and with maternity tights in the colder weather. Somehow, Bump still has all sizes available in the Fragile Silk Double Pleated Dress, which is slightly shocking, as Fragile sells out almost immediately at Bump. The dress is priced at USD $345. If you are up for paying international shipping, the same dress is available in a green polka dot print at French online boutique Emoi-Emoi.
