Why You Need These Baby Shower Dresses Right Now

Baby showers! They’re exciting, unforgettable and completely creep up on you all at the same time! You feel like you blink and you’re in the third trimester with a baby room that’s still used for storage, an empty hospital bag and a looming party that you’re throwing to celebrate with all your family and friends. Despite the fun of it all, there’s still a lot of other things going on at the same time and it can be easy to let slip the most important person of all - you! 

So first, if you’re looking for inspiration to start prepping your baby shower dress to welcome the newest member of your family, you’ve come to the right place. As much as we love our comfy and casual, there is nothing more exciting than putting on some makeup and getting dressed up for a party…and not just any party - You’ll want something special for the occasion and something that also flatters your bump! We’ve pulled together some of the best maternity baby shower dresses - from sweet pink, to baby blue or white stripe (cos is there ever a wrong stripe?), we’ve got you covered. 

Great! Now onto the baby shower dresses.

The Knit Dress

Knit rib dresses are our tried and tested way to get a little extra stretch and comfort into your maternity wardrobe. Pregnant or not there’s always an appreciation for a knit dress and they have a way of making you feel like you’re polished yet comfy (remember: comfort is key, especially if you’re going to be on your feet all day working the room!). In other words these are a no-brainer if you want something easy and essential that can double as your baby shower dress and continue to fit you like a dream post-babe.
