I definitely agree that you should be comfortable in whatever you wear to your baby shower, especially since if you are adjusting what you’re wearing or feel self-conscious in it, you won’t be able to focus on having fun at the event!
I remember all too well how annoying it was getting dressed the last two months I was pregnant. I stopped bringing my coat into most places because I’d just end up getting hot anyway.
I think the best route for you to go is to dress in comfortable layers and if you need to bring an extra coat with you to get from home to the shower location, then you can add that on top too. I added jackets or cardigans to each outfit, but you could remove those and the outfit still looks complete. I also added scarves because you could shed the cardigan and keep the scarf or vise versa. Make sure you wear whatever shoes are comfortable for you (I vetoed my wedges at the last second and just wore flats). Flat black boots go with everything!
I think each of these dresses would flatter your body type and I’ve found that when it comes to maternity dresses, it’s far better to wear something relatively form-fitting than something blousy or oversized. If you aren’t comfortable with showing too many curves, you can keep the cardigan or jacket on for extra coverage.
I love this dress because if you get overheated, you can shed the jacket and scarf and cool off quickly. Yes, it’s cableknit—but it’s sleeveless! A tuxedo jacket makes the outfit more dressy, while the boots help keep you comfortable. A neutral infinity scarf keeps the focus on the bright dress.
I love the neckline on this dress! If you’re worried about too much attention on your chest and stomach, the neckline will help draw eyes up. I like this dress without a cardigan, but if you want a light layer, this lightweight trench would be a good option. A bright scarf looks nice against the blue dress and ankle wedge boots would be comfortable AND stylish. (Oh, and I added this bracelet just because it’s so darn pretty. Find less expensive lookalikes here.)
Of all the three outfits, this one is my favorite! It may not be dressy enough if you’re having a fancy shower, but I think it’s perfect for a close friends/family event. The dress is a comfortable knit and I love the long cardigan—just remove the belt. (Both are on sale!) Keep everything else simple with neutral boots (similar), a simple necklace and a solid-colored scarf.
I hope this helps or at least gives you a direction to start looking in! Congratulations and have fun!
