Maternity-Friendly CNY Outfits That Can Be Reused Post-Pregnancy

Many mummies-to-be may think that buying maternity wear when they’re pregnant is a waste of money because these outfits hardly get any airtime after the baby is born. But just because you’re expecting a child doesn’t mean that you should go without new clothes this Chinese New Year.

Which is why we’ve hunted down for the best festive outfits that aren’t just maternity-friendly, but also stylish and versatile enough to be used in your post-partum days. Here are some of our favourites:

The Eliana Maxi Nursing Dress from Jump Eat Cry

Posts – Got a story?

This classy wine-coloured dress comes in a beautiful wine is stretchable, comfortable and is a great buy because it is nursing friendly. Mums who are planning to breastfeed will certainly get lots of use out of this. Pair with sparkly sandals for a casual look or with a pair of heels (post-partum) to dress it up.
S$49.90, available at Jump Eat Cry.


Blair Dress from Elohim by Sabrina Goh

This sophisticated dress is crafted from lightweight stretch cotton rayon, so it can easily accommodate a growing belly while remaining comfortable and functional enough for busy mamas to wear even after baby is born. It can be paired with flats and sneakers while pregnant or on casual weekends, or some classic pumps when you’re back to work.
S$159.90, available at Elohim by Sabrina Goh.
The MW Ruched Maternity and Nursing Dress in Lunar Red Print from Milky Way

With its flattering A-line cut, this dress from Milky Way is bright and beautiful. It is made of a rayon spandax so it can be worn during pregnancy but can also be used for nursing (you simply lift the layers of fabric at the bodice).

S$89, available at Milky Way.

SOSN 2.01 from Something Old Something New
There’s so much to love about this oriental-inspired dress from Something Old Something New. Its baby doll silhouette makes it maternity-friendly but it’s definitely a stylish keeper in the closet regardless of whether you’re pregnant or not. It can be paired with flats or kitten-heeled sandals for those pregnant days or easily jazzed up with a pair of strappy heels for post-partum mamas out on dinner dates.
S$89, available at Something Old Something New.

Wrap Sleeveless Dress from Mothers en Vogue

This sleeveless day dress is exceptionally flattering and fits almost any body shape and size, making it usable both during and after pregnancy. It turns into a discreet nursing dress after baby is born which makes it a great buy. It works well with ballerina flats or leather sandals during the day but could quite easily be glammed up with a pair of heels.
S$82.90, available at Mothers en Vogue.
