The holidays are all about glitz and glamour, and whether you’re breastfeeding or pregnant (or both!), you can still look glamorous and not have to sacrifice style.  The Olian Flare Dress from Belly Dance Maternity is pure, figure-flattering perfection for making the transition from pregnancy to breastfeeding this holiday season.  The high quality of this gorgeous dress is immediately apparent from the first touch – from the soft top, to the thicker material of the full skirt – this is one dress that will last you for years to come.

The flared skirt has just the right amount of poof, hits slightly below the knee, and will help conceal any post-baby belly.  The fitted waist and top will draw attention upwards – and, as a bonus, the deep v-neck, crossover-style top is made of a soft, stretchy material that can easily be pulled aside for effortless breastfeeding on the go.  You’ll truly feel like the belle of the ball in this trendy, yet classic black and white dress that’s perfect for Christmas dinner, a Chanukkah celebration, office holiday party, a holiday date night, or even New Year’s Eve.  Belly Dance Maternity has a whole host of gorgeous dresses for the holiday season, and this Olian Flare Dress is our top pick!

When you’re still nursing, attending holiday dinners with extended family around can become awkward fast. However, with Dote dresses, you no longer need to hide to breastfeed your baby. There is no doubt that the majority of nursing friendly dresses look like nursing dresses. It is difficult to find one that looks festive and doesn’t have gobs of fabric to fuss with. Dote nursing wear looks like the fashions you lust after in magazines but know you won’t be able to wear for a few years. High neckline, cute details, lace- they have got it all!

Mia Colorblock dress is extremely flattering even for postpartum bodies, yet doesn’t look like you’re wearing a maternity dress when you’re back in shape. It is made of silky stretchy fabric in beautiful colors fit for a fancy Christmas dinner. Nursing is a breeze in it due to its stretchy quality and the colorblock band that can be raised to accommodate even a toddler. Doubles as a maternity dress.

Isabella Oliver

It can be a challenge to find stylish maternity dresses that are also dressy enough for a holiday party. One of the great things about Isabella Oliver is that their dresses are so sophisticated and well-designed that they can very easily be dressed up for a winter soiree and worn more casually while doing some last minute shopping. This year, do yourself a favor and invest in a dress that does double duty. Every Isabella Oliver dress, like the Ruched Midi Maternity Dress and the Emily Maternity Dress, can easily be dressed up or down–for the office party, family meals, and even New Year’s Eve.

Is a v-neck more fitting to your pregnancy style? The Emily Maternity dress by Isabella Oliver is drop dead gorgeous! It boasts a beautiful neck line that wraps around the chest and gracefully ties in the back to gently hug ever-changing curves. Allowing maximum comfort at any stage of pregnancy. The easy and relaxed skirt is sure to make your bump look and feel stunning. This dress is perfect for any holiday festivities with the vibrant red design and can be transitioned into a gorgeous staple to any wardrobe after pregnancy. To top it off, the crossover wrap feature is nursing-friendly, making this dress truly versatile in every way. Look magnificent this holiday season with this dress from Isabella Oliver!

The Ruched Midi Maternity Dress comes in 7 different colors, although we are partial to the wine color, pictured here. This dress has super stretch–it fits the body at all stages–before, during, and after pregnancy. With ruched sides and a scoop neck front, the Ruched Midi Dress is a flattering fit for many shapes and sizes. You can dress it up with heels and a sparkly belt or necklace, or dress it down with loafers or even tennis shoes.

Garnet Hill

Are you in search of that perfect holiday dress? Wouldn’t it be great if you could find something versatile to fit all the parties – day, evening, and night.  We found a dress that is flattering whether you are headed to a cocktail party, holiday luncheon, or special dinner this holiday season.  A Sequined Tack Dress from Garnet Hill adds some sparkle to your day or night.  You will undoubtedly feel special in this highly detailed dress.  The sleeveless, above-knee length, slight A-line silhouette has just enough swing to flatter every body.  Bands of glamour add a sculptural touch in front and back. The best part is that you will be absolutely comfy in this Pima Cotton dress.  Take the dress down a notch with flats by day or up to the hilt with heels to a host of holiday parties.

Boob Design

Boob Design keeps function and fashion in mind with their clothing line that allows easy nursing access. It’s nice to know when you buy a maternity piece that you will get extended wear from it, and you definitely have that with Boob Design. Their clothing is made of high quality materials to guarantee them to last years and multiple pregnancies. The women behind this Swedish based company treat their designs and their customers with care.

The 50/50 dress can be worn both during pregnancy and afterward with the discreet front nursing panel. This dress comes in both black and indigo/denim. The top part of the dress is a soft, stretchy knit and the bottom is made of 100% woven lyocell, a very smooth fabric with an almost velvet-y texture to it. A small side tie is a sweet little feature that keeps the top secure, while adding a little detail to the basic design. Sometimes, a more basic style like this is the best kind as it can be made versatile when paired with a variety of accessories and shoes.
