Before we get into it, let’s have a quick look at fabrics.

Why does viscose flatter your bump?

Viscose is a man-made fabric, it originates as wood pulp before being transformed into a substance bit like cotton.

I love wearing viscose – it feels natural like cotton but it drapes and is far more flattering. When the fabric composition is good; the dress can last for years regardless of how often you throw it in the wash.

This is crucial for a hard working maternity dress.

3. Bodycon maternity dress for the office

In order to look professional on daily basis I would recommend something a bit more strict than you usually wear. Remember your cup size may be increasing and this can change not only the cut but the style of clothes that flatter you. Maternity bodycon dress will still be a great fit and a versatile piece for the workplace.

Choose muted colours and you can pair it with different cardigans, scarfs, shoes and jewellery. This will mean you don’t get bored and no one will ever notice that you are wearing the same dress!

Verdict

Maternity bodycon dress can be a versatile addition to your wardrobe and even if you do not usually wear contouring dresses. Many women find it a fantastic solution for work and home life during their pregnancy.

Order you maternity dresses early. Many designers try to make them wearable beyond pregnancy as well as during. So why not try them on now – it is a special time of your life and a time to look after yourself.
