This dramatic gown has a statement-making painterly print rising up from its hem, stopping just short of the waist. There’s also plenty of hidden cleverness with discreet elastic for support around the off-the-shoulder neckline, waist pleats that cascade over your stomach and soft stretchy fabric that will keep you comfortable all day. The best bit? It has pockets!

4) Athena Nursing Dress, £189, Tiffany Rose

This dress is great for the early stages of pregnancy or after you’ve had your baby and are breastfeeding. An empire line waistband and stretchy fabric add comfort, while the dress’ straps unhook for easy breastfeeding.

10) Dotted Maternity Dress, £48.00, Mamalicious

The ruffled hem and fun, polka-dot print give this dress a relaxed, boho vibe. A casual take on the traditional bridesmaid dress, this offers a fantastic trans-seasonal look as the sheer sleeves are light enough for summer but offer some warmth should it turn chilly.
