It’s almost like a rite of passage for pregnant women. When you reach the 7-8 month mark in your pregnancy, you might start considering documenting that beautiful bump in a portrait. And if you take a look-see through Pinterest or Etsy, you’ll be inundated with pictures of pregnant women looking like gorgeous goddesses. So naturally, you might want to get a gown of your own and feel glamorous, too. These nine maternity dresses with a split in front will make you feel like a fairy tale princess.
But unlike the rest of your maternity wardrobe, (which you’ve probably worn in heavy rotation up until now), these dresses are typically a one-wear deal. After all, are you really going to be able to do a Target run with an open flowing gown and nothing covering your nether regions? Kind of unlikely, we say. Although some women do double-duty with the dress and pose postpartum once they’ve delivered the baby (like a before and after photo), which is also equally adorable.
Depending on how much you want to spend, you’ll find dresses that have a split front for pretty much all budgets. But no matter what style you pick, you (and your bump) will look absolutely beautiful.
