Looking Your Best!

Yes, girls, it is possible to look beautiful while pregnant! All you need is a figure-flattering dress to show off your best assets. Try an empire-waisted dress like this black jeweled evening gown from Kiki Risa (opposite page) that enhances the elegance of your expecting figure. Stay away from super bright colors like yellow or lime green or you might end up looking like a piece of fruit. Celebrate your curves! Although you may not feel like yourself with that extra baby bump, you should show off what you’ve got. Be proud of your bump, be confident, and enjoy your pregnancy ... you won’t regret it.

Tip: The most important thing may be looking your best on your night out, but make sure to pick out a dress that is also comfortable.
