3 Things to Know When Shopping For a Sample Wedding Dress While Pregnant
Having your wedding while also expecting a baby are two incredibly special moments wrapped into one! For a bride with a baby bump, it’s understandable that you may initially think there aren’t many dress choices for you, but that’s just not true!
In this post, we share 3 important tips to consider when starting your search for the perfect wedding dress.
Communication is always key
Remember, you’re not alone in your search! Before your wedding dress appointment, talk with your bridal stylist and let them know your goals, hopes, and concerns. It’s important to be totally honest, after all this is your big day.
By communicating with your stylist, they’ll be able to pull a selection of sizes before you come in.
Choosing the best silhouette for your shape
Don’t forget to do your own bridal research to get an idea of the different styles available and what might fit you best.
Decide if you want to showcase your baby bump or keep things more inconspicuous. No matter what your vision is, there are plenty of styles to bring it to life.
Tighter silhouettes, such as mermaid gowns or sheath gowns are suitable for putting the bump on display, while also accentuating the bride’s curves.
For a less showy look, check out empire waist gowns, which provide a loose, comfortable fit.
Navigating fabrics and sizes
Comfort is a priority for most pregnant brides, which is where choosing the right fabric and proper sizing is important.
For sizing, naturally, your beautiful bump will be growing through the months. You’ll want to touch base with your bridal consultant well in advance to discuss how your body will be changing size and the best way to accommodate this when ordering your gown.
Don’t forget to mention fabrics, and opt for one that stretches and adapts with your body to provide ample comfort and support.
