For far too long, maternity clothing was rather
drab. Many of the dresses fit like a tent, offering a minimum of
style. The only other options were oversized tops and nerdy-looking

taking place in maternity wear. Today's styles are eye-catching,
feminine, and even sexy. For instance, www.evalillian.com offers

Sexy Formal Maternity Clothing
For a number of years, formal maternity clothing
did not really exist. If you wanted to go to a fancy event while you
were pregnant, you simply had to wear whatever maternity dress you
found on the rack-usually, something in demure pink. But now, manufacturers
are offering maternity dresses with a formal flair.
For instance, the Sophia maternity dress by designer Nicole Michelle
is a case in point. This dress is billed as being classic and sophisticated-but
with a definite edge. The black stretch fabric makes this dress appear
luxurious and form-fitting. It is, in fact, a new take on the popular
sexy "little black dress."
The dress features an elegant off-the-shoulder style
with ¾ sleeves. As a result, it is appropriate for an autumn wedding,
a holiday party, or a romantic evening out with the dad-to-be. The dress
comes in extra small, small, medium, large, extra large, and 2XL.
The Bellysock or Maternity Belly Band
One new development in maternity clothing is an item that can allow
you to extend your pre-pregnancy wardrobe. It's called the BellySock,
and it can be used to complement non-maternity clothing. Also known
as a maternity band or belly band, this item can be worn underneath
non-maternity tops in order to provide extra support and coverage.
You can wear maternity belly bandsBellySock underneath or over your
shirt, folded over or high on your waist, depending on your own personal
style. Its maker says the BellySock could quickly become the most
versatile item in your wardrobe.
These "bella bands" can also be worn
postpartum and while you're nursing as an alternative to a draped blanket.
The garment comes in a variety of colors, including coral, cotton candy
pink, black with pink dots, garden, lilac, black, and white. It also comes
in a full range of sizes, including small, medium, large, extra large,
2X and 3X.
