Same thing, again?!
Now that I'm more than six months pregnant fitting into anything with a button or zipper near my midsection feels like an incredible novelty. That this dress still zips and feels comfortable has me reaching for it on the regular. So I'm wearing basically the same thing I've worn, multiple times on this blog. I even ordered the navy version because it went on sale at Anthropologie.
For other pregnant Anthrophiles, I think it's useful to know that this particular piece does have a seamed waistline but it is a forgiving one. The entire dress, including the very soft cotton lining has stretch to it. I bought a size up from my pre-pregnancy size (a deal on ebay while the dress was still full price) and it has been a great second trimester garment. It also is a piece that can be easily layered to hide the bump if that is a concern. Even now, from the front I don't think I especially look pregnant in it. Its easy a-line shape is a great camouflage. The one thing I should caution is that I am not very tall (5'3"). And a growing belly shortens most everything. This is less of an issue if you have legs you don't mind highlighting and/or if it is tight season. But it still seems important to point out. I see it working well as part of my postpartum winter wardrobe. It is definitely an all star dress in which to be pregnant in Anthropologie.
