Maternity Style with Bonprix – Review

My bump started to show pretty early on in my second pregnancy and, whilst this is lovely, I really struggle to find maternity clothes down the local shops.  When Bonprix asked if I’d like to review a couple of items from their Maternity range, I couldn’t say no.  If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I turned 36 weeks pregnant yesterday!  Although I would say it’s a little late in the day to start buying new maternity clothes, it’s definitely not in my circumstances as I plan to breastfeed for as long as I can, so I need options that make nursing as easy as possible.

I picked out the Maternity Winter Leggings as leggings have been an essential in my wardrobe during pregnancy.  They come up over the bump, which I really like as I find it provides much more comfort than under the bump styles.  The leggings are lined with a fleecy fabric which makes them perfect for this cold snap of weather that we seem to be experiencing at the moment.  The leggings are available at £17.99 which I think is quite reasonable for this particular design.  My only concern is that the sizings are on the small side – but, then again, you wouldn’t want baggy and loose-fitted leggings!

I also chose the Maternity Dotty Dress to pair with the leggings during pregnancy.  I really love this product – it’s so comfy!  The material is stretchy enough to accommodate a growing bump and bosom, without being overly clingy.  A wrap V-neck design coupled with a high waistband also provides concealed buttoned openings to allow for nursing easily.  I’m really looking forward to being able to wear this dress with a pair of tights in Spring after the birth of the baby.  The dress is available to buy at £29.99, which I think is a good investment for mums wishing to breastfeed.

I styled the dotty dress and leggings with a pair of embellished ballet pumps and a black cape with faux fur collar from Dorothy Perkins.

Did you have a favourite piece of maternity wear?

Disclosure:  I was sent these items for the purpose of writing this post, however all words and opinions are my own.

  1. The dress looks lovely on you, I saw it on the Bon Prix website and was really tempted but I already have a black spotty dress so thought they’d be too similar. Love the styling with the cape! xx

  2. These look lovely on you. I hated shopping for maternity ware and mostly got things in a bigger size apart from a dress I wore to my baby shower and a couple of tops. Which I do still wear as baggy tops now!! There seems to be more choice emerging all the time so next time around I think I would have more options. Lovely choices :)! Nice to treat yourself especially towards the end xx

  3. That dress and leggings really suit you. I love that style of maternity dressing. It looks really stylish but is so comfy. I am 18 weeks pregnant tomorrow and I am finally wearing maternity clothes. They are so comfortable. I can’t believe I put off buying them for so long. And I adore that cape and those ballet pumps. You look fantastic. Hugs Lucy xxxx

  4. The outfit looks fab and really suits u! Maternity leggings are the best as they are so comfy and were my must have along with maternity jeans.

  6. Lovely outfit! I’m also taking part in this style challenge, just waiting for a replacement item that didn’t fit! Our looks are totally different 🙂 That dress shows off your bump really nicely 🙂 xx

  7. I love the dotty dress it looks so chic and comfy! I didn’t really treat myself to decent maternity clothes. Maybe next time round x
