Available from: ASOS

2. Seraphine Black Ribbed Knit Maternity Dress, £52

seraphine knit bodycon

Works as office wear, pottering-about-in-the-day wear and going-out garb. Not the cheapest on our list, but hopefully one to get lots of use from.

Available from: Seraphine

3. Katie Piper Maternity Burgundy Twist Front Bodycon Dress, £25.95

Long sleeves, below-your-knees length and a flattering twist that sits just above bump. Classy and stylish for a night out – and works well if you want your bump to be the focus.

Sizes: UK 10, 16 and 18. Other colours in more sizes.

Available from: Want That Trend

4. ASOS Design Maternity Nursing Cape Floral Bodycon Dress, £38

Another dress designed for mums who are nursing. The cape top is really subtle, as is the floral print.

The overall colour? Not so much. So, prepare for you and bump to stand out in this dazzling jade green number.

Sizes: UK 6 – 20. Shop your usual size, or check the size guide on the site against your current measurements.

Available from: ASOS

5. Boohoo Maternity Cap Sleeve Wrap Midi Dress, £18

maternity cap sleeve boohoo

A simple cut, with a leg slit up the front and a v-neckline. We’ve picked this one because it’s great for a party, nice do or night out – and we know our Instamums rate Boohoo’s range.

It’s available in a bunch of colours: black, berry, caramel, sky and nude. Stock up on a couple if you like the fit, and you don’t want to spend a fortune.

Sizes: UK 8 – 16

Available from: Boohoo

6. New Look Maternity Multicolour Stripe Bodycon Dress, £12.99

new look stripe maternity

We love that this bodycon’s stripy, but it’s also got a bit of colour. It’s very easy to wear day-to-day, with a round neckline and sleeves that come up just above the elbow.

Sizes: UK 8 – 20. One reviewer says it's “very true to size”.

Available from: New Look

7. Mothercare Striped Double Layer Nursing Dress, £10

mothercare stripes

Tie fastens at front and back, and like some of the others on this list: has a discreet under layer which gives easy access for breastfeeding.

We like that the stripes, like the New Look options, are a bit different, too.

Sizes: UK 10 – 18

Available from: Mothercare

8. Mamalicious Lace Maternity Dress, £40


We think this is a classy, well-priced option suitable for a wedding party or do, which comes in a variety of colours. It’s lacy, bump-hugging and also highlights your bump with a ribbon that sits right on top.

Sizes: XS – XL, depending on dress colour.

Available from: Mamalicious

9. Katie Piper Maternity Blue Bardot Twist Dress, £29.95

katie piper bardot bodycon

Bump-hugging dresses don’t have to be bodycons – and this bardot-esque number is proof. It’s tight around the bust, baring the shoulders, but once it’s skimmed over your bump, it doesn’t cling to your sides or legs, the floaty skirt allowing it to balance out really well.

We saw Katie wear this dress IRL when she was expecting her 2nd, Penelope. So, we confirm it looks this lovely in person!

Sizes: UK 8 – 18.

Available from: Want That Trend

10. H&M MAMA Jersey Dress, £17.99

hm marl dress

This dark blue marl dress is short, and the jersey fabric does cling to and hug your bump neatly.

We also get sporty vibes from this one, so reckon it would look cool with trainers for days where you’re chilling or just popping to the shops.

Sizes: XS – XL

Available from: H&M

11. ASOS Design Maternity Knot Front Slinky Dress in Floral, £35

asos floral

An elegant, classic floral number, again great for a wedding or a party. It’s designed to be close to your bump, with some detailing and a side-tie to highlight your pregnancy shape.

Sizes: UK 6 – 20

Available from: ASOS

12. Boohoo Maternity Square Neck Rib Stripe Midi Dress, £14

boohoo stripe

Long-sleeved, stretchy and a great choice for women who are showing and proud, but aren’t quite ready-to-pop just yet.

Sizes: UK 8 – 16

Available from: Boohoo
