WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING

 Catherine Alhinc
 Some brides are moving into and combining two very important transitions in life, wife and mother all at once. If perchance you are or will be a bride expecting, brace yourself--there are some absolutely gorgeous gowns out there. You'll be impressed to find slick, editorials like these of Mom-to-Be /Brides holding full, rounded tummies. Designers are finally heeding the call for trendy bridal gowns ranging from the most traditional to total ‘edge’.

Maternity dresses are designed with a growing tummy in mind and are cut several inches longer in front.  That means all those great little empires and tents coming off the runway lately won't really work unless you'll be less than five months along in your pregnancy.

That's great that there are designers who add maternity gowns in their lines. I would think that some regular gowns can be worn during pregnancy too, like the ones with the high waist and/or the really full skirts.
