Between doctors’ offices, work, and babymoons, it can be hard to find the perfect sartorial outfit to see you through your pregnancy.

However, there is a solution that celebrities from Meghan Markle to Jesinta Franklin implemented during their own pregnancies – and it’s some transeasonal ingenuity!

The humble but very effective maxi dress can be worn in a body con style or draped perfectly around your growing bump in a romantic A-line cut.

Stars like Edwina Bartholomew and Jennifer Hawkins have shown just how versatile it can be too when styled with a jumper and a jacket.

You can also opt for a long-sleeved maxi to wear on cooler nights a la former Bachelor contestant Snezana Wood or adopt a splash of colour like Meghan, Duchess of Sussex did when she was pregnant with Archie on a royal tour.
