You just found out the good news; you’re pregnant! Congratulations! Over the next nine months, you’ll be experiencing a lot of changes, getting ready to bring your baby home and adjusting to the ultimate job of parent.
And while you’re getting things ready for the baby (or babies if you’re an expecting mother of multiples), there are a few items you’re going to need before the baby arrives. Namely, maternity clothes.
We know, we know, that phrase carries a lot of stigma; images of 80s velour dresses adorned with shoulderpads creep into the mind, or shapeless frocks that women had no choice but to where. Thankfully, times have changed and you no longer need to sacrifice style for comfort.
Whatever your style, there are pieces that will compliment your already unique to you wardrobe.
And hey, if you’re looking to update your style, why wait until the baby comes? As we head into summertime, upgrade your closets with tops, jeans, jumpsuits, rompers, and maternity dresses by Hatch. They’re trendy, comfortable, and always gives you room to grow as your baby does.
The Carolina Dress
Hatch says, “Cut from a soft, double gauze fabric in spring-y hues, a lighter-than-air dress for breezing in and out all summer long with a pretty tie you can wear at the front or back.”
This breezy gown is the perfect summer staple. Whether you’re heading to a backyard barbeque, a graduation party, a nice dinner, or a stroll on the beach, the Carolina dress is your answer to “I have no idea what I want to wear tonight.”
The Emily Dress
Hatch says, “Easy, breezy and all kinds of dreamy, a maternity dress with an understated tonal floral pattern, grow-with-you ruching at the back, and a pretty (double!) ruffle detail at the neckline. Basically a one-way ticket to Cloud 9.”
Your baby shower is coming up, and you know you want to look extra special; you and your child will look back at pictures from that day for years! The subtle floral pattern coupled with the ruffled neckline and the dress’ cascading flow will make you feel beautiful (even though you always are).
The Riviera Dress
Hatch says, “Black-tie affair, meet caftan. Caftan, meet black-tie affair. With an easy silhouette that’s as comfortable as it is striking, the Riviera Dress works for everything from that destination wedding to a night out. Bonus: the removable sash is perfect for those early months and post babe. Yes, we thought of everything.”
Do you have a formal event falling a month or two before your due date? Do you love to dance, and picture dancing the night away (aka, 10 p.m.) with your hunny, dressed in something fit for the Queen you are? Then run, don’t walk to add this dress to your closet.
The drapey fabric, asymmetrical hemline, with the sash draped perfectly above your bump and dropped sleeves create an ethereal aura around you that will add to your already beautiful glow.
This dress is the epitome of style meets comfort.
The Elia Dress
Hatch says, “The perfect day-to-evening maternity dress in an understated tonal floral with a smocked bodice, super romantic short blouson sleeves with elastic at the top and bottom (so you can wear it on or off your shoulder), and…drumroll…POCKETS.”
I mean, they should have started with pockets honestly. That right there had us sold. But add in the dreamy off-the-shoulder (optional) sleeves and roomy bodice, it’s a no brainer for summer. Perfect for an outdoor concert or brunch.
The Softest Rib Nursing Dress
Hatch says, “It’s in the name. In a super soft, super fine ribbed fabric that’s crazy comfy with a nursing-friendly snap front placket and romantic empire waist, this maternity dress channels the ‘90s in the very best way.”
Who says maternity clothes are just for being pregnant? Liars and thieves, that’s who! Just kidding, kind of, because maternity clothes should be made to be worn post-partum — especially if you choose to breastfeed and need to do some creative feeding. And hey, we’re all for breastfeeding wherever and whenever you want, but wearing clothes that make it easier to do so will make your life so much easier.
The Isa T-Shirt Dress
Hatch says, “For after the beach: a short version of the classic shirtdress in a waffle pique fabric with just the right amount of structure and easy feel (also: stripes!).”
Alright. We’ll say it. On a 90 degree day, there’s really nothing better than a t-shirt dress. It’s light, it’s breezy, it’s stylish, and you can dress it up or down. Throw it on over your bathing suit, and you’re ready for the beach. Toss a cardigan over it, and you’re ready for lunch or a shopping trip with your girlfriends.
The bottom line is, maternity clothes can be trendy. Find your style at Hatch!
