  • Beat the Heat

    We think it's safe to say that this summer could not get any hotter. Let Belly Dance Maternity help keep you cool. Check out some of our favorite things to help you beat the heat.

    One of our favorite dresses for the summer is the Japanese Weekend White Skirt/Dress. This maternity dress is made from a light weight voile material that is very breathable plus the strapless style is perfect for the beach or a shower.

    The Bobble Water Bottle is the best way to sip your water this summer in style. This water bottle is perfect for pregnant women because the carbon filter removes chlorine and other contaminants from the water. This BPA free water bottle not only makes your water taste better, but it's the fraction of the cost of regular bottled water.

    When all else fails heading to the pool or a beach is surely the best way to stay cool. Arrive at the water in style in this fun and sexy maternity bikini from Ripe Maternity. The side ruching on the Ripe Maternity Bond Girl Bikini gives it a flattering fit and the halter neck provides lots of support. Comfort and style, what more could a pregnant woman ask for?

  • 5 Essential Tips from Belly Dance Maternity

    1.  During the first trimester of pregnancy, dressing your changing body can be hard. Going up a size in your regular pants can often lead to baggy bottoms that just fall off. You need a maternity pant with a good fit in your regular size. From basics to work pants to designer jeans, you’ll find lots of options from all of our brands.
    2.  Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite designer denim. Designers like Serfontaine, Paige and JBrand all design fabulous maternity jeans for different body types, while staying on top of the current trends such as straight and skinny jeans.
    3.  Versatility is key when thinking about your maternity wardrobe. A little black dress or skirt gives you tons of options. Wear a chic, fitted dress to the office with a blazer, or pair with high heels for a night out. Finding a piece that can be worn many different ways is important.
    4.  Don’t be afraid of prints or color throughout your pregnancy. They are a great way to add some spice to your maternity wardrobe.
    5.  Stay stylish even after your pregnancy with a hip diaper bag. There are many options from brands like Nest, Not Rational and Storksak. These diaper bags look like your favorite purse and are guaranteed to have strangers stopping you in the street to find out where you got them.
