After we published our pregnancy announcement a few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely owner of Bumpalicious Maternity to choose and review one of their maternity dresses. I was so excited to be asked as I had been eyeing up a few of their designs for weeks!
I decided on the Sweetheart Maternity Dress as I immediately fell in love with the cute black heart print, it also featured some of my favourite things including a peter pan collar and a detachable bow, I mean who doesn’t love bows!
It arrived quickly, was beautifully wrapped and came with a tote bag and a packet of love heart sweets, yum! I was so excited to receive it and opened it immediately. I was not disappointed as it looked absolutely stunning, I tried it on and oh my goodness it fitted so well (with plenty of room left for a developing bump) and I felt amazing in it, something that every pregnant lady wants to feel. It was soft, luxurious and really flattering which was helped by the black band that fits over the top of your bump.
I was also happy that it was actually long enough for me, I really struggle finding maternity dresses that are long enough (well to be fair I find it hard enough anyway) and this has the length and it’ll still remain long enough with a big bump. A great feature of the Bumpalicious Maternity website is that the majority of dresses have the length of the dress detailed in the description, which I find really useful.
This dress will easily see me through my entire pregnancy and afterwards too. In fact it’s a dress I’d wear even if I wasn’t pregnant. I’ll definitely be purchasing more dresses from Bumpalicious Maternity as they have such a wide range of both maternity and nursing dresses in so many different styles, it would be hard not to be able to find one or two items that you absolutely love.
The Sweetheart Maternity Dress is made from a lightweight fabric with added stretch to fit comfortably throughout all stages of pregnancy. It retails for £75 and I ordered it in a size 12 to give me some extra room for growth.
Bumpalicious Maternity have a range of beautiful dresses for all occasions, including special occasions such as weddings and christenings, as well as a bridesmaid range. They also offer a bespoke maternity dress making service.
