5 AMAZING wrap dresses that will see you through your entire pregnancy

If there is one item every pregnant mama needs to put on her must-buy list, it's a wrap dress.

Just take my word for it – I pretty much lived in these when pregnant – both times.

Maternity wear is often expensive, certainly when you account for the fact that you'll only wear it for a few short months, then probably never want to ever wear it again.

However, a wrap dress, I argue, you will actually continue to wear also after you have your baby, not only because they are just pretty much the most flattering shape you'll ever wear, but also, if you wear them with a camisole or vest top underneath, because they are seriously practical if you are breastfeeding.

Take our word for it; this is the one maternity wear item you need to treat yourself to, mamas:

1. Burgundy Crossover Maternity and Nursing Dress

Few things are as flattering as a wrap dress when it comes to dressing your bump. And this dress is not only oh-so pretty, it also comes in this season's number one colour: burgundy.

2. Maternity Lara Wrap Front Side Tie Dress

You can't beat a little black dress, ladies – maybe even more so when you are pregnant and need that one go-to outfit that can make you feel on fire. And this Boohoo number ticks all the boxes – and guys; the price is almost too good to be true too.

3. Bluebelle Maternity Wrap Midi Dress With Tie Waist

This dress is not only the perfect option to wear to the office, it is also pretty enough to wear out to dinner or a night on the town (should you feel like one of those). We love the monochrome print, and think the three-quarter lenght sleeves are so flattering.

4. Geo Print Maternity Wrap Dress

A classic printed dress is a life-saver – and can easily take you from the office to (non-alcoholic) drinks with the girls – and see you through pretty much your entire pregnancy. Bonus? Wrap dresses are pretty much the most comfy (and flattering) thing you'll ever wear.

Elegant and versatile, this fail–safe dress is ultra–comfortable and offers a flattering, fitted silhouette at every stage of your pregnancy. Pair with a pointed kitten heel for evening glamour.
