Pregnancy is such a hard time for many women, not all pregnancies go perfectly to plan. With this said the occasional treat is defiantly needed in pregnancy. There's so many changes happening inside your body that reflect in the outside. One of the things I find hard is my changing body shape. Some women love the change and I do too but I takes me a while to get used to it. I won't lie, I do find putting on weight quite hard. I feel that because I'm so small any weight that I put on really shows.
With that said having some proper maternity clothes is a big must for me. They fit with your new shape and enhance it. They give me confidence and honestly make me feel nice.
This Tiffany Rose dress is a very special piece of maternity wear. When I first looked at the site it took me at least a few days to decide which dress to review. There all gorgeous and I would of loved every single one. I picked the Amelia dress because I personally think that you can't go wrong with a little black dress. To feel confident while not pregnant i'd wear a little black dress so why not do the same while pregnant.
The dress arrived in the most gorgeous packaging. It defiantly felt special when I received it. The dress itself was wrapped in tissue paper. I first tried the dress on about 3 weeks ago and I loved the fit. Obviously my bump wasn't as big as it is now but the dress still looked lovely and I had room to grow.
I ordered the dress in a size 8/10 as my pre pregnancy size is an 8, sometimes I run a bit smaller. But I think the sizing is perfect. The dress fits me well but I still have room to grow which is super important for maternity wear.
One of the first things I noticed about the dress was how comfortable it was. I could of literally slept in it. For me maternity wear has to be comfortable and this dress defiantly is! The dress also comes with a black satin sash which is included in the price. I do think this is a good option but personally I found it quite hard to make it stay on me. I'm not sure if it's because I am so petite but no matter how hard I tied it, it just came loose. So you will notice that I did take it off. I also felt a little like a present when it was tied with a bow to the front but on the model on the website it does look fabulous and I think it would work for some women. But I love that you have the option to wear it or not.
I love the lace overlay and I feel like a princess when I'm wearing it. It honestly makes me smile and feel good. Another thing I love about the dress is the boat neckline. I think that its quite flattering and if like me and don't like a deep necklace then it's the perfect choice.
The sleeves are three quarter in length which is very flattering for most people. A lot of women don't like there arms and I'm not one of these people but I love the length of the sleeves. They give a bit of cover and I like that.
The length of the dress is also nice. It is 73cm from under the bust to the hem. Now I'm only 5'3 and a half (the half is very important) so I am quite petite but I think the dress looks nice. In a perfect world I think I would like it to fall just a little bit higher so the lace came just below my knee. This would, for me, be the difference of a few cm's so if you are taller than me the dress would be perfect.
The Amelia dress retails at £169 which I think is really good. It may seem expensive for a maternity item of clothing but for a special occasion dress it is reasonably priced. It could be worn to many different occasions and Mark actually took me out for a lovely meal in mine. I'm also looking forward to wearing the dress around my birthday at the beginning of April. I will be around 30 weeks then so I look forward to seeing how the dress fits my bump then but I have no concerns that it will look perfect.
Have you tried a Tiffany Rose maternity dress?
