When I was pregnant, I realised just how difficult it was to look stylish. I was lost in a world of accessories and trying to find smart yet comfy shoes (still not sure they exist… ). It took me a while to realise that a couple of perfect statement dresses is all that’s needed to get you through any sort of occasion.
Avoid drab dressing during pregnancy and beyond by investing in a beautiful frock or two from Body by Dainy Sawatzky, a beautiful range of womenswear that’s all about being effortlessly stylish. While Body is not strictly maternity wear, it’s perfect for pregnant silhouettes.
Popular with new mums, and rightly so, the store in Melbourne’s Prahran is kitted out so tots can enjoy crayon drawing on butcher’s paper while their mums shop. There are stockists all over Australia if you are not a Melbourne local.
I love these dresses. The balloon dress can be gathered or loosened in three sections to achieve a different look to suit your frame, or frame of mind. Other garments, such as the Sail dress and Cloud dress, are perfect for making the most of pregnancy by wearing them with a belt for a tighter fit or loose on days when you want to cover the bump or post baby tummy.
