Dress to the Nines in Childish Maternity

More than pickles and ice cream, mamas-to-be crave droolworthy clothing that’s fashionable and figure flattering. Your body may be changing, but your style doesn’t have to!

Hip celeb moms like Heidi Klum, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jessica Alba are fans of Childish Clothing, which is designed by Skye Hoppus (wife of Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus and author of Rock Star Momma: The Hip Guide to Looking Gorgeous Through All Nine Months And Beyond).

Childish’s fashion forward designs are body conscious, well made and comfy. I adore the Ellie Dress ($88) from the Childish Fall line. Casual yet still refined, this flirty feminine dress is made of Childish’s exclusive organic french terry fabric. It’s hard to find clothing that is both eco-friendly as well as elegant, but this dress is both “green” and chic. 

The Ellie is available in several colors. Basic black transitions seamlessly from day-to-night and with the right accessories would work for both dinner parties or a day at the office– making it a practical option for expectant mamas on a budget. But the dip-dye mulberry is so beautiful if you’re looking to add a little color to your wardrobe and can afford to buy more than just the basics.  If you’re really in the mood to splurge, check out the hip gold and diamond “baby” necklace ($595) Jessica Alba sported throughout her pregnancy.

I had the opportunity to preview Childish’s WInter 2008 fashions, including their luxurious silk charmeuse dresses and tunics which float over your curves and accentuate all the right places on your figure. 

The Natalie (pictured here) with its fun flutter sleeve has just the right amount of sexiness. If you love the half-moon pattern silk but need a little more coverage up top, the Amy has soft butterfly sleeves which flatter the arms.  If you’re looking for a beautiful holiday or baby shower dress, definitely bookmark and check back in a few weeks.
