Maternity Wear from Tiffany Rose

I have already written about the lack of maternity wear freely available to us larger ladies (size 18... now pushing a 20 thanks to baby weight).

Nothing feels quite right, you find that you're not wearing 'maternity' wear per say, just stretchy shiz instead, which I have coped with, marginally, up until now that is - especially with the weather changing now.

I am 35 weeks and 1 day today, I cannot move never mind feel womanly or beautiful in any way shape or form, so let me tell you that when Tiffany Rose offered for me to review one of their dresses from the SS14 range, I was a little excited to say the least.

I'm gunna go there and admit... I squealed like a lil piggy when I checked out what I could choose from - click here to flick through their virtual catalogue
I was so pleased to see that a maternity wear specialist actually tailored for the size 18 pregnant woman too. The majority of their dresses to go to a size 6, which is 18-20.


Tiffany Rose Maternity Wear Presentation Box Delivered
Stunningly presented!

I opted for the stunning (seriously beautiful!) Eden Gown in Arabian Nights, the short length. I was umming and ahhing over the full length maxi version but, at 5 foot 4 and a half (yes... the half inch counts!), I didn't want to have to chance needing it to be taken up - especially given that it features a lace overlay.

Sash accentuates bump!
The Eden Gown is also available in Chocolate, Ivory Dream and Caspian Blue but, for me, the Arabian Nights - as a stunning Navy - is just perfect for my skin tone.

It arrived in a sturdy pinky purple presentation box and a further layering of delicate tissue upon opening making this THE perfect gift for someone special. (Gents, take note and spoil your Mrs')

The dress features Tiffany Rose's signature stretch lace which allows for a flattering flowing skirt after the under bust elastic, and comes with a satin sash to accentuate your bump, which is unusual as I find most brands try to hide bumps or streamline your figure.

The sash makes you feel like a true bloomin' mum-to-be... and not in a bad way.

The model on their site has it tied on the side so it skims over and hangs down bump, but I chose to tie it at the back so as not to get in my way.

I'm a fiddler you see!

If you wanted to update or revitalise your dress, you can order separate sashes if you like too - great idea.


This dress is luxurious to the touch. A seriously high class gown. 

Weighty enough to not be flimsy and ensure your dignity is maintained at all times, but breathable enough to accomodate any hot flushes! 

It moves with your body thanks to the stretchy Acetate/Elastane lining so I wasn't having to 'adjust' myself at all through out the entire night.

Speaking of the night! As I was feeling all super duper glam in my gown, I decided to get my face on to boot and I went on a dinner date with A in New Brighton. 

The view across the Mersey whilst we sat at our table was to die for and I was feeling pretty awesome - I am certain this dress put me in this mood. 

I moan all the time, heck you should know by reading my blog, but I felt a bajillion dollars wearing this.

I don't care that I've put weight on, or that my shape has gone to pot... I love how this dress makes me feel.

So when I disclosed how much this dress retails at (rrp £149) to A,  he didn't choke on his Pollo Carbonara (as I fully imagined him to do!) he agreed that seeing how comfortable and beautiful I was *blush moment* it was worth every penny. 

He even suggested that the cut would allow for me to wear this after baby is born too and dya know what, he's right.

35 weeks bump in dress, occasion wear, maternity wear
So don't go thinking that once it's been worn once for your special occasion that it's destined to await another pregnancy - I will put it out there that I reckon ladies without bumps can wear these dresses with no problem at all.

Tiffany Rose are on Facebook and Twitter, why not go and say hi? Be sure to let them know you found them from here :-)

I 100% recommend Tiffany Rose for all your maternity occasion wear.
Go and take a look at Tiffany Rose www.tiffanyrose.com and let me know what you'd choose. I already have my eye on a few more beauties and I only have 5 weeks left to go haha!


What do you think of my dress then?
Go on... be honest ;-)


DISCLAIMER: I was sent this dress free of charge for the purpose of review. All opinions are honest and my own, I was not paid to write this post. I freakin' love this dress off of my own back!!
