I found the best bodycon dresses! - M Loves M @marmar

Alright guys, I have to be honest with you. I am so close to giving birth that it’s getting super hard to plan cute outfits to share with you! I’ve tried to wear non-maternity clothes as much as possible and I can’t believe I managed to find a dress that looks good while in my third trimester! I really love wearing bodycon dresses when I’m pregnant, even though I never would otherwise! Isn’t that interesting?!

Why I’ve Finally Started Wearing Bodycon Dresses

One of the funniest things about dressing yourself when pregnant, is that your style totally changes. For example, I never wear bodycon dresses normally, but I think they just look so great while pregnant! I’ve found for me that flowy styles aren’t very flattering, so I am embracing showing off my bump. It’s not like I can hide it anymore {this is how I get away with hiding pregnancies at first}! This dress isn’t a maternity style, but I sized up one size and was able to still wear it even at 35 weeks! I could see it being a great transitional piece for the early days of pregnancy when you want to show that you do have a little bump.

I think I’ve just never cared for how tight bodycon dresses can be, I tend to go for a looser silhouette {like this floral maxi dress I’ve been wearing!}. I liked adding a moto jacket for extra coverage. I think I might even try wearing a bodycon dress after the baby comes because I just love how this style turned out. I’m such a fan of this blue and beige stripe combo because it allowed me to add a fun red bag and lip!

What are your thoughts on bodycon dresses?? I think as long as they aren’t too short or low cut, they can be great for layering. I think this dress would also look great with a long loose cardigan over it. I’ve been wearing this cardigan {P.S. it’s 50% off} a lot lately and think it would look so good with this dress!


I’ll probably only share a few more outfit posts before the baby comes! I’ll still be posting on my maternity leave, but will probably be doing less outfit posts than usually while I adjust to life with my little one. I can’t wait to start styling non-maternity outfits again! In the meantime, here are some of my favorite styles you can shop for under $100!
