    What to Look for in a Maternity Bridesmaid Dress

    When you're pregnant, a bridesmaid dress should fit well and flatter your bump, but should also be comfortable enough to wear for hours. Below, some basic parameters that will help guide you.

    • Coordinating colors and style: A pregnant bridesmaid can perfectly match the rest of the bridesmaids and bridal party, but she doesn't have to! If finding a perfectly matching maternity dress is tough, consider choosing a lighter or darker shade of the same color. Or, go for the mismatched look with a silhouette in the same shade.

    • Comfort: Pregnant women can be a little more sensitive to scratchy fabrics and uncomfortable embellishments like sequins and beading. Avoid potentially irritating fabrics and go with simpler, stretchier and softer options.

    • Ability to wear a bra: Some pregnant women find that they don't have enough support without wearing a bra. If that sounds like you, consider a maternity bridesmaid dress with sleeves or straps that'll allow you to wear a maternity bra underneath.

    • Room to grow: Whatever your style, the dress should accommodate your growing bump. Just how much room you'll need will depend on how far along you'll be on the wedding day. Pregnant bridesmaids in their first or early second trimester may be able to get away with a maternity-friendly bridesmaid dress in a flowy fabric that skims the midsection. But, if they're in their second half of pregnancy, it's usually best to shop in the maternity section.

    Overall, a pregnant bridesmaid should feel confident and happy in her dress—and able to dance at the reception, if she likes.

    Below, shop our favorite maternity bridesmaid dresses, organized by color.
