10 ways to wear a maxi dress

The maxi dress is a firm friend to a pregnant woman.

Flattering to most body shapes, this style of dress shows off a belly, while hiding the bumps you don't want to show.

In summer you can accessorise with a hat and sunglasses, just add a cardigan or jacket as the weather starts to cool.

As you can see from the slideshow above, the look is a favourite with celebrities from Angelina Jolie to Gwen Stefani.
