One of the most beautiful maternity dresses I’ve ever seen is pictured right here – the Leota Stained Glass Nouveau Sheath Maternity Dress ($179.95) is simply exquisite in all its jewel toned glory. Whether worn with strappy sandals and bare legs or opaque tights and boots, I think this will be one dress you will wear long after your pregnancy, thanks to its flattering three quarter cut sleeves and stylish shape. The all new Leota range is available from Queen Bee.
Keeping the warmth in and the cold out has never been easier than with this awesome innovative 3-in-1 Ultra Light Maternity and Babywearing Down Jacket. Keep your baby bump covered during the coolest days, then keep both you and baby snug when toting a baby carrier with the help of the removable jacket panel – genius. Of course, by removing the panel you can continue to wear the jacket for many more winters to come sans baby bump or baby carrier. Filled with amazingly light and warm down, the 3-in-1 Ultra Light Maternity and Babywearing Down Jacket is available in four colours from Mamaway, priced $179.95.

Available in sizes S to XXL, the Honeycomb Chemise is available from Cake Lingerie, priced $84.90.
