Why do we love ruffle maternity dresses? And why should you? Hmm… well, we can tell you that it’s the only style that instantly transforms your shape — in the best kind of way! And those layers? That look is super in! Wear the ruffles on the waist or the neck, it’s all cute. They add an interesting dimension to your look and make a terrific texture accent.
Interesting dimension? Texture? What does all of this mean? Hold on, we’ll tell you! And we’ll also let you know how to dress up your ruffle maternity dress for ultimate fashion success.
What Are Ruffle Maternity Dresses?
A ruffle pregnancy dress is a maternity gown with frilly (AKA flounced) features. Whether it be the neckline, sleeves, or skirt, a ruffle maternity dress has, well, ruffles! This frilled, folded material adds a lil’ something extra to your outfit.
How to Wear a Ruffle Pregnancy Dress
With pride! Well, that’s a given. The thing about ruffles is that they tend to enlarge the part of the body they decorate. So, the rest of your outfit should follow suit.
For example, if your maternity gown has a ruffled neckline, it will make your bust more apparent. If the skirt is ruffled, the texture will make your hips wider. This is why ruffle maternity dresses are great for filling out your shape, but you’ll want to focus on shrinking your waist and/or shoulders for the best silhouette.
Our advice? It’s best to avoid adding other bulky pieces to your outfit, like large coats, because they can add extra weight. Using a belt or sash to cinch your waist can enhance the ruffle effect and slim your figure.
And think about it. Ruffle styles that show some skin (like Maribel!) are always flattering because the large petals next to your bare skin shrink your figure and make you instantly appear slimmer. The same can be said of ruffled midi or mini skirts. If you want to wear any ruffle maternity clothes, your best accessory may be your skin!
What to Wear With a Ruffle Maternity Dress
This will depend on the style of maternity gown you buy. Here are a few general pointers:
She’s a maternity midi dress with a ruffled, off the shoulder neckline. SO, you can wear her with almost any footwear you deem cute (and lengthens your leg). Wedges, sneakers, and low heels are all on the table! A delicate necklace will highlight your collar and make your shoulders stand out. Since she has a bodycon design, no cinching is required.
Another midi-length pregnancy dress, Melody is also good with most shoes. We especially love her with sneakers since she has a more casual feel. The pencil skirt also makes her a great match for heels!
