Shannon on

This is one of the worst trends ever. Looks like fashion school rejects. This goes for maternity and non maternity wear. Just no.

Catca on

I agree with Shannon that it’s a terrible fashion trend but I have to say Kristin C. is carrying small for how far along she is. Some women are really lucky!

Jess on

I completely disagree with the other reviewers – I love this style! Very easy-breezy and laid back for Summer. I do think the flat sandals the celebs are wearing look much better than heels with these dresses. Absolutely adorable!

Kresta on

Hideous fashion.

Gianna on

So pretty! Nice take on the high-low trend for expectant moms. Love it when paired with neon color trend or mixing of bold colors. Agree with Jess 100% re: flat sandals, heels are a bit much with this style!
