Okay, girls, I need a little advice here—can you help me out? This summer I’m going to four weddings while pregnant. FOUR. One in April, one in May and two in July.
In an effort to minimize the amount of one-time-use maternity clothes I purchase (i.e. in an effort to not buy any one-time-use maternity items), I’m planning on buying one dress that I can wear to all four of them. My biggest concern, of course, is the very different sizes I’ll be between mid-April and late-July. And while I tend to favor more fitted clothes for bumps, I’m wondering if perhaps I should venture into the flowy category in an effort to keep it simple. Which, of course, brings me to one brand in particular: Hatch Collection.
Hatch maternity clothes are a breath of fresh air in a sea all of the terrible maternity options out there in the world. Their effortless styles are all designed to be flowy and flattering to all body types—during and after pregnancy. That being said, their chic clothes come with a hefty price tag, so I’m still not completely sure that I want to take the plunge. What do you think?
1 // The Dinner Party Dress, $208
Only available in color shown above.
2 // The Afternoon Dress, $208
In either black or navy.
3 // The Slouch Dress, $158 for jersey and $198 for blend (shown above)
Available in color above, and neutrals in multiple fabrics. All good options.
4 // The Lily Dress, $298
Love the color shown, but also comes in olive and black, which are timeless.
Two questions: 1) Which is your favorite? 2) Even if I wear my dress four times, is it even worth the money?
P.S. All of them come in petite, so if I decided to buy one, I’d go with that option to avoid being totally swallowed in fabric.
