Meanwhile, we’ll explore the ins and outs of the midi style so you can wear your dress with confidence every single time.
What is a Maternity Midi Dress?
A maternity midi dress is a dress specially tailored for pregnant women that falls between the knee and the ankle. This length makes it a bit shorter than a maternity maxi dress, but not quite as short as a mini dress.
The midi style is fashionable all year long, though it’s adored in the spring and summertime. When the warm weather comes along, a pink or white midi maternity dress is a fashion-forward choice that can’t do you wrong.
You can wear a white midi maternity dress (or any color, really) to your baby shower, gender reveal, photoshoot, or to the grocery store. A midi is always cute and super feminine!
How to Wear a Maternity Midi Dress
Some claim the midi style is challenging, especially for more petite women. Don’t listen! Here are a few easy hacks to help you pull off the perfect midi look every time. Note: “being tall” is not a part of this list.
Choose a good length - Choose a maternity midi dress that falls right above or right below the middle of your calf will create great composure overall. Mid-calf length is what tends to make women look shorter than they really are.
Solid color/pattern - Color blocks or complicated patterns will throw off the form of this dress. We recommend opting for a solid color or a simple print. This will keep the focus on the pretty shape and movement of the dress. P.S. — we have a lovely red maternity dress in a midi length!
Cinch it up! - If the dress is not already fitted at the waist, throw on a belt to give yourself some more shape. A maternity midi dress from our collection will already cling to your waist, but a belt could always add a nice touch.
Get the heels - Heels and midi dresses mix like strawberries and cream! Heels will lengthen your leg and give you more height. As always, wear comfy heels and take extra caution! A mother in the making wouldn’t want to risk any falls for the sake of fashion.
Choosing Accessories for a Maternity Midi Dress
Extra bling and things are a must for any gown, whether it be a formal maternity dress or a cute sundress. Sure, you could sport a solid white midi maternity dress and look pretty cute, but accessories take your whole look up several notches. Here’s what we recommend for a midi:
Metallic jewelry. Choose for your complexion, be it silver, gold, or bronze.
Belts. This is SO important! Belts show your waistline and really enhance the skirt of your dress.
Jacket. One that falls at your hips or right above is good. Leather or denim are excellent choices! For a more upscale look, try fur or a bolero. You can dress your maternity midi dress up or down depending on the coat you pair it with.
Handbag. Either a clutch or purse will work, just make sure your bag is not too large. Small bags best complement your maternity midi dress.
