8 best brands to shop for bump-friendly event wear


Dressing a baby bump can feel like a challenge at the best of times. What will fit over your belly? What’s comfy? What will contain your giant pregnancy boobies?! But add in a dress code or a specific type of event, and picking a bump-friendly outfit can feel hellish. We get it!

So, here are 8 of the best brands to shop for bump-friendly event wear, as well as our favorite current styles from each. 

Legoe Heritage

This Aussie maternity-wear brand is lush. It pairs carefully selected textiles with sharp modern designs that you can wear just as much after pregnancy as you do throughout those nine months.

BAE the Label

BAE the Label is on a mission to make maternity wear fashionable. (We love this for us.) Which makes this Aussie brand a must-shop for any event you have on the calendar during pregnancy. (And beyond, for that matter – many of its clothes are designed for wear post-pregnancy, too).

Seraphine 

Seraphine is a go-to for any occasion during pregnancy, from a casual get-together to a black-tie event. All its clothes are designed to help moms feel their best during pregnancy while staying true to their style and celebrating their gorgeous new curves.

HATCH

Ok, HATCH’s clothes are chic AF. The brand was created by a mom of two who was looking for elevated maternity clothing, but… well, couldn’t find it. Enter Hatch: a line of timeless, stylish wear designed to be worn at every stage of pregnancy and motherhood (yes, it offers nursing-friendly clothes too). We particularly love Hatch’s range of jumpsuits – they’re boss! 

Styles we love:

  • For an afternoon (non-alcoholic) aperitif, try HATCH’s Cannes Gown
  • For a dressy bridal shower, try HATCH’s Harlow Dress.
  • For a laid-back dinner at your corner Italian, try HATCH’s Belen Dress.

Wolford

We know Wolford isn’t a maternity wear brand. But, the hosiery brand also makes gorgeous clothes, many of which are wonderfully stretchy (so bump appropriate) – its Fatal Dress was Kim Kardashian’s go-to dress during pregnancy. 

Styles we love:

  • For a night out on the town (even if you’re home by 9 pm), try Wolford’s Fatal Dress.
  • For a cool-weather cocktail event, try Wolford’s Aurora Dress. 
  • For an event-packed vacation (you know, the one with a dinner every night!), try Wolford’s Fatal Skirt (it can be a mini dress, a top, a skirt – versatility!).

Nothing Fits But

This South Korean brand offers perhaps some of the most stylish maternity wear we’ve ever seen. Designed by a mom on a mission to prove maternity clothes can be fashionable, each item is made with the best fabrics and the chicest of cuts. We love that it offers styles for any occasion too, from a very casual affair or a dressier get-together. 

Styles we love:

  • For high tea, try Nothing Fits But’s Haru Dress.  
  • For a festive-season cookie swap, try Nothing Fits But’s Aria Dress.
  • For a picnic in the park, try Nothing Fits But’s Pleated Tie Dye Dress (pair it with white sneakers for a fresh look).
