Maternity Dress Options
When you're shopping for a designer maternity dress, there are a number of choices you must make. For example:
- Color. Do you prefer a basic black dress or a more daring pink ensemble?
- Print. Do you want a subtle floral print or a bold geometric design?
- Fabric. Do you prefer simple cotton, elegant silk, or soft stretch jersey fabric?
- Length. Do you want a dress that's short and sexy or one that is longer and more conservative?
Finding a stylish designer maternity dress is easy when you shop online. You can compare a wide variety of styles from the comfort of your own home. If you're worried about finding the proper fit, look for stores with a liberal return policy or take pictures of your favorite styles to the nearest retail location so you can try them on in person.

Designer Maternity Dress Styles
While designer maternity dresses come in styles to fit every fashion personality, the wrap dress and the empire waist dress continue to be among the most popular.
The Wrap Dress
It's no secret that a wrap dress is almost universally flattering, since it adds definition where you need it the most. It's the perfect maternity wardrobe staple, since most styles are adjustable to work throughout the nine months of your pregnancy.
If you're looking for a wrap dress, check out these beautiful designer maternity dress styles:

- The Seraphine Callie Jersey Maternity Nursing Wrap Dress is classic, yet sexy designer maternity dress with short sleeves and a cheery geometric print.
The Empire Waist Dress
While there's nothing wrong with flaunting the shape of your pregnant belly, some women feel a bit more comfortable in a style that minimizes the shape of their expanding tummy. An empire waist dress provides a stylish way to accomplish this goal. It fits around the bust to create an attractive neckline, then flows from just under the bust to camouflage your stomach.
