Maternity fashion has rapidly evolved over the last decade. Expecting moms are no longer hiding their growing bumps but flaunting them in stylish garments. Couture maternity gowns instantly transform maternity photoshoots, impress at baby showers, and look remarkable at weddings and other formal events.
Here we’ve compiled some of our favorite couture looks in maternity gowns.
1. Delicate Lace
Lace has long been known for its beauty and femininity. This lightweight fabric drapes gracefully over a woman’s curves and is suitable for virtually all occasions. While most people associate lace with the color white, modern maternity gowns can be found in a wide range of shades. The Flamboyant gown by Mii Estilo is an excellent example with its form-fitted lace design and exquisite satin train, perfect for any maternity photoshoot.
2. Soft Ruffles
Ruffles have remained on-trend season after season and the reason why is clear. This dominant feature adds volume and luxuriousness to any maternity gown. Ruffles tend to elevate ordinary dresses, creating a dramatic appearance that instantly draws in the eye. With its cascading ruffles down the front leading to the back, Penelope by Mama Bump Closet is the ultimate couture look for any formal occasion. Along with the ruffles, the bodice is adorned with folded chiffon, a corset back, and a scallop sweetheart neckline.
3. Vintage Sheer
Vintage fashion has become increasingly popular over the years. This is partially due to nostalgia and the fact that the garment cannot be easily duplicated. These one-of-a-kind pieces emit a romantic aura, making them a great option for weddings and other personal events. Magic Maker by Reclamation is a stunning choice for expecting moms who adore vintage fashion. The sheer lace boho gown features long, billowing sleeves and a deep V-neck.
4. Mermaid Skirt
The beloved mermaid skirt has a way of emphasizing the body in all the right places. The fitted bodice hugs the bust, waist, and hips, and then flares out to a wider skirt. These gowns can be found in many variations with different sleeve styles, fabrics, and lengths. The wide mermaid flare is what creates a dramatic silhouette. For a slim fit gown with a full circle tiered mermaid skirt, look no further than Bonnie by Sew Trendy Accessories. The incredible garment also features flutter sleeves and a scoop neckline.
5. Pleated Chiffon
Pleats are often used by designers to create volume in a garment. The fabric is strategically folded or gathered to create a full silhouette that adds aesthetic beauty. Pleats can also be practical, allowing the wearer to gain more airflow and movement. Falyn by J&L Designs Boutique features pleated chiffon, along with other lavish detailing like a glimmering olive leaf belt that clasps below the bust.
