For women, there is no experience quite like being pregnant. Mothers-to-be go through all kinds of changes, not the least of which are changes to their wardrobe. For expectant women, especially first-time expectant women, it can be difficult to make the transition from the clothes you're used to wearing every day to maternity clothes, and maternity dresses can be particularly challenging to pick out. The good news is that Kohl's can help take the guesswork out of finding the right maternity dress and offers a stunning array of dresses for every stage of your pregnancy.
How To Choose The Right Maternity Dress
For many women (not all but many), maternity clothes are not needed for the first two trimesters. It typically isn't until that third trimester that many women feel they can't hold off any longer and need to make the transition to maternity clothes. Maternity dresses are particularly popular with pregnant women because they are comfortable and easy to put on and take off. So how do you find the best maternity dress for you when you're ready?
Choose a Form-Fitting Silhouette
There are as many styles of maternity dresses as there are expecting mothers at any given time. Some of those, unfortunately, have little shape or form to them. They're really little more than just a large curve-free piece of fabric. Women are not shapeless, pregnant women even less so. With that in mind, you likely want to show off your bump and go with a dress that conforms to it. Kohl's offers belted dresses or ones that are hemmed just above the waistline which can work to beautifully accentuate your bump.
Consider the Seasons
Some maternity dresses are made for the spring and summer seasons, others are made for the fall and winter seasons. It may seem like something of a no-brainer but it's sometimes easy to overlook the fact that, depending on the climate in which you live, your pregnancy is going to span multiple seasons of the year. Keeping in mind that you won't be showing until well into the second trimester of your pregnancy, you should take into consideration what time of year your second and third trimesters are going to fall into. Something long sleeve and made of a heavier material is obviously going to be more comfortable if you're going to be showing closer to the fall and winter seasons. Conversely, going with a sleeveless dress made of lighter, more breathable material is going to offer more comfort during the spring and summer months. No matter what season you're going to be needing your maternity dresses, Kohl's has the styles and sizes to fit every mother-to-be.
The best maternity dresses should do three things for expectant mothers. First, they should keep you comfortable at every stage of your pregnancy. Second, they should flatter your changing body. And third, they should conform to your baby belly once you begin to show. And thanks to Kohl's you don't have to compromise comfort or style when choosing your maternity dresses. Whether you're choosing a lightweight t-shirt dress for family gatherings or lounging around the house on the weekends, or a professional sheath to make the right impression at those professional business meetings, Kohl's has all the latest styles and trends to help enhance your natural glow and keep you comfortable for the duration of your pregnancy.
