I was over the moon when I received this dress to review as being pregnant, a new item of clothing can really lift your spirits, especially when you are quite far gone. When the dress arrived it was beautifully and delicately packaged, wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a cotton bag (which you can reuse). When I took the dress out of the tissue paper I could tell it was of high quality and just what I had imagined it to be from looking at the website photo.
I couldn’t wait to try it on. I tried on the “Charlotte” Maternity and Breastfeeding Net Jersey Dress in Black. As soon as I put it on I automatically felt really good. The polyester fabric felt very soft and gave the dress a special shine which makes it the perfect dress for all occasions. During the day I know I could wear this dress with a casual cardigan and tights. Although a cardigan isn’t really needed as it has ¾ length sleeves which I love as I hate the tops of my arms. Now I have this dress I have an excuse to put some make up on, do my hair and have one last date night with the hubby before this baby arrives, as it is a perfect evening dress too. Also you could wear it for work. A very versatile dress for sure!
There are so many aspects to this dress which I LOVE! The bow which is tied to one side is very cute and pretty and makes you feel very feminine. I also think the v neckline makes the dress feel very flattering. The colour black makes the dress a classic and an essential piece of clothing for any pregnant woman. Most women feel better in black too and the material just sits beautifully over my ever expanding bump, making it feel extremely comfortable. As previously stated I love the ¾ length sleeves as I hate the tops of my arms. The silky polyester makes a nice change than cotton and like I have already said it can be dressed up or dressed down. What is really really great is that it has easy access to the breasts for when I am breastfeeding too after the baby is born. Instead of sticking on my jogging bottoms and feeling frumpy straight after the birth I’m looking forward to still feeling a bit glam. This means you can get plenty of wear out of what is an already reasonably priced dress.
I will definitely be recommending this dress 110% and the website Angel Maternity to some pregnant friends. I would give it 5/5. I think all women deserve to feel nice during pregnancy and just a few really nice pieces of clothing is a must- especially this dress! It’s so versatile, flattering, comfortable and stylish. So if you are a pregnant lady, go on and treat yourself!! Why not? You deserve it! It also makes a lovely present for your pregnant friend/ relative, especially as it comes beautifully presented.
One happy lady.
