A flowing dress gives your growing belly some breathing room, while a stretchy belt cinches above the stomach to shape the garment and accentuate your curves. Wear your belted dress on a night out with wedges and a statement necklace, or sport it to a casual weekend lunch with strappy sandals and a floppy hat.

Maxi skirts with elastic waistbands that hug the stomach have a slimming effect and don’t put pressure on the belly. Paired with a simple tank top or colorful tee, this look is fashion-forward with minimal effort.

The uneven cut of a waterfall cardigan diverts attention from your baby bump and puts the focus back onto the legs. Look for a long cardigan that falls past the waist to keep the attention on all of your best assets.
