The Independent, April 2017, 10 Best Maternity Dresses


London-based Clary and Peg’s vintage-inspired line marks you out from the crowd when you’re expecting, but it does come at a price. Nevertheless, we received compliments from our colleagues when we wore this empire-line dress, which comes as a one-off piece cut from end of line material sourced directly by the manufacturers. An optional belt helps to draw in the waist (while you still have one). Impressively, this is also available in petite sizes and can be worn again after birth, with button openings at the breast to allow you to feed.
