I found the perfect New Year’s Eve dress for a pregnant woman

I spotted this marvelous Isabella Oliver  Ashwell maternity dress float across my radar and thought how perfect it would be for a New Year’s eve party for a pregnant woman. The halter criss cross bodice looks as if it would accommodate a woman with ample bossoms, fuller because she is pregnant. Also, a long sleeve style is ideal for women who are not that comfortable with having her arms exposed as many evening dresses are either strapless or come with spaghetti straps or cap sleeves.

Red is a perfect color for winter and the holidays and even if one isn’t comfortable with mini dresses and having their legs exposed, this dress can be worn with wedge boots to limit the amount of legs shown and exposed.

I do think it’s the perfect New Year’s eve dress for a pregnant woman. Currently, it’s down to $101 from the original $169. And though it comes in a brown for those who are fearful of bright colors, I challenge you to go brave and the the year on a boom and get the red! There’s still time to order this dress or hunt for  similar style.

Here are some alternatives I also spotted while surfing my Shopstyle partner’s website recently.

Evelyn Lozada says no to maternity clothes, considers designing sexy maternity line

Basketball Wives’ Eveyln Lozada recently told Que Mas online magazine that she doesn’t wear maternity wear because maternity clothes make her feel “old and frumpy.”

The newly-engaged clothing store owner and author said. “I love tops that hug my tummy and show off my bump”

She added that she is thinking of designing a line of sexy maternity clothes. Why not? Throw your hat in the ring too.

“Pregnant women need to feel beautiful, wear gorgeous prints and nice solids,” the Afro-Latina mama-to-be shared. “Don’t conceal your bump! Wear it with pride.””

Good advice, mama!

….um  but on that old and frumpy maternity thing, we think she needs to take a better look at some of the creative maternity lines out there like Isabella Oliver for example.

These don’t look old and frumpy to us!

And some other brands too have done sexy maternity pretty well:
