Five Tips on How to Dress for Your Baby Shower

Are you excited about your upcoming baby shower but are worried you have nothing to wear? Then it’s time to treat yourself to some beautiful maternity clothes. Pregnancy is a special time in your life, so enjoy it and embrace your changing body. Here are some tips for dressing for your baby shower.

  1. Always go for comfort.
You won’t enjoy the party if you’re uncomfortable with what you’re wearing. Make sure to ask the baby shower host about the theme and dress code. You should also consider the venue and the weather. Will it be a summer garden party? Then consider wearing a lightweight chiffon maternity dress. If it’s a more formal event indoors at night, look for comfortable maternity evening dresses that will turn heads.
  1. Don’t hide your bump.
Your baby shower is a great time to flaunt your pregnancy curves, so don’t hesitate to wear one of those figure-hugging maternity dresses. If you’re not a fan of dresses, consider form-flattering tops and bottoms that fit and flare so you don’t look frumpy. Wearing clothes that fit you well will boost your confidence and make you look good in pictures. It’s a baby shower, so you’re sure to have a lot of photos and videos taken of you.
  1. When in doubt, wear a maxi dress.
Lightweight maternity gowns are versatile for any occasion, even for casual get-togethers. They can make you look and feel stylish and cool. If your baby shower is dressier, you can always choose maternity evening dresses.
  1. Wear the right shoes.
Pick flats instead of high heels. Even if you’re used to heels, it’s still important to be cautious especially in your final trimester. You should also ensure your feet can breathe in your footwear.
  1. Ask about the planned activities.
If the host is planning to have baby shower games, make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothes that will allow you to move freely.
