The Dessy Group

$284

For an endless variety of cuts and colors, it’s hard to beat The Dessy Group! In addition to carrying go-to brands like Alfred Sung, After Six and its own collection, the store has a dedicated lineup of maternity bridesmaid dresses. Better yet, many of the styles come in dozens of shades for any wedding color palette. We like this long maternity bridesmaid dress for its empire waistline and unique neckline. It doesn’t hurt that it comes in everything from a moody, black floral “Noir Garden” pattern to a solid, purpleish peony hue called “Enchanted.” And FYI, everything sold by The Dessy Group comes in plus sizes up to size 30.

Seraphine

$419

Seraphine—a favourite of Duchess Kate and Zoe Saldana’s—is known for its stunning collection of formal maternity dresses, including pregnant bridesmaid dresses. While the brand is pricey overall, the quality and refined details are hard to beat. We love this floor-length blush stunner for its lace bodice, cap sleeves and jewelled waistband.

ASOS

$140

This fast-fashion retailer may not be dedicated to wedding wear, but it actually has a vast assortment of bridesmaid dresses—including maternity bridesmaid dresses. The site is our source for inexpensive, trendy options, with some timeless styles thrown in there too. (It’s also got an inclusive array of tall, petite and plus size attire for the rest of your bridal party.) Can you stay stunning? This springy yellow maternity bridesmaid gown has a trendy off-the-shoulder neckline, a sparkly sequin bodice and pretty pleats. Oh, and it won’t break the bank.

The 11 Best Baby Bath Products your Baby will Love

24 hours after my son was born, it was time for his first bath. This, I learned, is a big newborn deal. I had no idea this was such a major rite of passage, but, it turns out, I wasn’t completely wrong.

Prior to 2017, it was pretty common practice to bathe a baby fairly soon after birth. Birth, bath, bond, boom! Recent research has shown that not only is it okay to wait to bathe, but that the delay is really beneficial for both baby and mom. Studies have shown that babies that were bathed 14 hours after birth were less likely to have issues controlling their temperature and blood sugar levels and tended to be more successful in breastfeeding.

27 Best Breathable Bras and Panties for Summer

Summer dresses and cute workout tanks are fun, but without the proper hot-weather-appropriate underwear layered beneath your summer fashion staples, a cute outfit can feel sweaty fast.

To keep cool this summer, it’s important to have panties and bras that are made from breathable fabrics that allows natural airflow and prevents irritation. Beyond that, they should also be made with your comfort in mind, because sweating in thick underwear or having to readjust ill-fitting straps on a summer evening is the opposite of fun.
