New Year’s Eve is all about the glitzy parties, champagne toasts, and late night dancing. Unless, of course, you’re pregnant, in which case, no one would blame you for turning in early, and a glass of bubbly is out of the question. If you’re planning to put on your best party face to ring in the new year (while sipping some New Year’s Eve mocktails), you’ll need to browse some maternity New Year’s Eve dresses to find the perfect fit.

Finding a New Year’s Eve outfit when you’re pregnant can feel like an impossible task (what with all the sequin-covered dresses giving your baby belly the look of a disco ball). And chances are that the further along you are in your pregnancy, the more you just want your New Year’s Eve maternity outfit to be comfortable and stretchy. Stylish too, yes, but like, stretchy most of all. Since you’ll likely not need a New Year’s maternity dress again (at least not any time soon), it’s reasonable to want to buy from a brand that offers cute but affordable maternity clothes too.

Whatever you choose to wear on NYE, be sure to take lots of pics to remember this fun, glam moment in your pregnancy. You’ll be staying up at midnight a lot more often soon, but not to watch a ball drop.


A sheer wrap dress with silver accents

If a sequin-covered dress is not your New Year’s Eve outfit of choice (especially while pregnant — sequins itch), consider the Jessica Simpson Plus Size Clip-Dot Flounce Maternity Dress. The silver, tinsel-like accents on the fabric add that shiny glamour without all the extra weight and discomfort sequins bring. It’s also machine washable.


A sexy one-shoulder look

Not every maternity dress has to be a wrap style, as evidenced by the drop dead sexiness of the Maternity Plus Raine One Shoulder Cutout Long Dress. It’s made of rayon and spandex so it’s super stretchy and accommodating to your bump. This little number is also available in standard sizes.


A bright red maternity New Year’s dress

This Knee-Length Fit N’ Flare Maternity Dress with Pockets is perfect for parties where you need to look put together or professional. It’s made with 24seven’s signature stretch fabric for maximum comfort, and it comes in three different colors so you can go bold or dark. Also, it has pockets.


A high-low New Year’s maternity dress

Also from 24seven Comfort and featuring their ultra comfy material: the Sleeveless Fit and Flare High Low Maternity Dress. It’s got a deep V neckline and a high-low silhouette, perfect for showing off a show-stopping pair of shoes. And honestly, if you’re wearing heels while pregnant, you deserve to let everyone know.


A New Year’s Eve outfit you can rent

If you’re hesitant to spend money on a New Year’s maternity outfit you’ll only wear once, you could try renting. Rent the Runway carries designer maternity styles, like the soon maternity Red Claire Maternity Dress, a bright and classy dress for parties. RTR has a ton of great user photos of real people in their clothes, so be sure to scroll those for a better idea of how it will look.


A simple, shiny maternity New Year’s dress

If you like your New Year’s party dresses on the minimal side, a simple Sleeveless Body-Con Maternity Dress might just be the move. This one’s material is stretchy (yay comfort) and shiny (yay subtle glam), and it’s easy to dress up for one night, then wear casually until baby comes.


A tulle, off-the-shoulder New Year’s Eve dress

This Off-Shoulder A-line Tulle Maternity Dress will make you the talk of the party with its special sleeve details and dramatic silhouette. Choose from seven shades, from a deep purple to a light breezy blue, so you fit the party’s theme perfectly. It would work just as beautifully for a baby shower or maternity photo shoot in the new year too.


A green satin wrap dress

When you’re pregnant and dress shopping, you’ll probably find that wrap dresses are the most comfortable and flattering style. This ASOS DESIGN Maternity Satin Wrap Midi Dress is a classic silhouette in a wintry, forest green color. And if you happen to only have nursing bras that fit you right now, a dress with this neckline means you don’t have to go buy a strapless bra for one night of wear.


A halter-top maternity moment

Oh, so you want to look hot. Well, the Vesper Maternity Cross Neckline Front Split Dress can absolutely make that happen. The off-white color feels very on trend, the material has a little stretch to move with you, and the twisted halter neckline is the cherry on top. This is one maternity outfit you’ll save just in case you’re ever pregnant again.


A satin, pleated halter top look

Looking for more of a classic halter? The Rust Pleated Sleeveless Waist Tie Maternity Plus Maxi Dress is a gorgeous color that’s very of the year, but won’t be worn by every other person at the party. This look is one you could continue wearing after New Year’s Eve, or throw a sweater on over top to wear as a faux skirt.


A subtle, structured maternity look

If you want a simple New Year’s maternity outfit, the Josephine Ruffle Maternity Sheath Dress might be for you. It’s a classic sheath silhouette with a mock neck neckline, complemented by a ruffle detail and keyhole back with three button details. It’s timeless, elegant, and yes, it just so happens to be stretchy.


An eye-catching peekaboo dress

The Ripe Maternity Women's Dot Nursing Dress Black is just straight up cool, and would look equally good styled with heels as it would with Doc Martens. It’s constructed to fit over a growing baby bump, and be worn postpartum, with built-in panels for easy access when nursing or pumping.


A blue velvet wrap dress

Want a New Year’s maternity outfit that is soft and flattering? The Genevieve Velvet Maternity/Nursing Dress is a beautiful muted blue tone perfect for a NYE party, with a tie waist that adjusts to fit you exactly as needed. Because it’s not overly sparkly, you could wear this well into postpartum life, too.

It’s fully lined with soft piping around all the edges to prevent itching and skin irritation, and features a flattering knot detail near the bust.
