It can be a little overwhelming and/or challenging when trying to find the best plus-size maternity dresses. I myself had to really do a lot of research when finding mine so I felt I needed to make it easier for other expecting moms by creating this list. . . You’re welcome! 😜

Are you looking for a plus-size maternity dress for a photoshoot, baby shower or just to be cute & pregnant? 

Either way, this list of 15+ plus-size maternity dresses (not listed in any particular order) will definitely help you find the right one . . . or two or three! 🤷🏾‍♀️ 😊

Side note: Since everyone is so different I highly recommend reading the reviews for each of the dresses you are interested in. Also, be sure to pay close attention to the type of fabric, the style, and the fit of a dress.

  • Long Sleeve
  • Off the Shoulders Sweetheart Neckline

My size measurements for the benefit of other ladies: Pre-pregnancy: 5'5'', 265 lbs, dress size 20, bra size 44F. By the time I wore this dress at 8 months pregnant, I was 282 lbs. I normally wear a 1X or 2X (depending on the brand), but I purchased a size XL in this dress and it fit me great. The dress is very flowy and forgiving with lots of fabric. It covered my chest modestly, and the long sleeves fit my rather chunky arms with no problems. If, however, you are a lot bigger than me in the bust area, your girls may not fit into the boob section of the dress. Mine did, but it was a maximum capacity situation, lol. What I like most about this dress is that it is not super fitted in the bottom area of your tummy- it flows out, which is ideal for me because I have an "apron belly" (Google it) that doesn't look great in tight-fiting mermaid dresses unless I'm cupping/covering up the problem area with the bottom of my arm. As you can see, the hunter green is a beautifully rich jewel tone, and really pops in the autumn background.

  • Comes in 14 different colors/prints
  • Up to 5XL (US Women’s Size 12-28)
  • Soft, Stretchy, Mid Weight Fabric

Ellen, purchased 2XL

Starting at $129 at Etsy

  • Can be worn as Straight Neckline or Off the Shoulder
  • Long Sleeve, High Waist
  • Available in 12 different colors
  • Up to 3XL 
  • Soft Jersey Knit Fabric

The dress is lovely. The sleeves were a little tight. I felt like for the size I ordered the sleeves didn’t really go with the size (ie: sleeves should be more accommodating of larger arms). I ordered this in “light blue;” however, everyone who has seen the dress and pics say it’s green. The photos still turned out great but I’m not sure if seller sent me the wrong color dress or their definition of Light blue is totally different from mine. The color swatch online that says light blue does not appear to be the color of my dress. Overall, I’m Happy with the fit and the way the photos turned out and speed of shipping and so that’s all that matters in the scheme of things.my dress seems to match more with the Tiffany blue color from shops swatch.

  • Rounded Neckline, Empire Waist
  • Short Sleeve, Relaxed Fit
  • This is a blush color but comes in 9 different colors
  • Up to 3XL 
  • Soft Jersey Knit Fabric

I was amazed at the craftsmanship of my dress. The fit is perfect. I sized up one just to be sure the fit would be what I wanted (based on other reviews). This is truly a quality product. Shipped very fast.

Estefania, purchased a 4XL

Starting at $23.99 at Amazon

  • Perfect for Milk Bath Photoshoots, Baby Showers, etc
  • Long Sleeve
  • Comes in 6 different colors (in this style)
  • Up to 4XL 
  • Full length to the floor

This dress was perfect for my milkbath maternity photo shoot!!! I loved it and my photographer too! I'm a plus size girl before pregnancy using pants size 14 and shirts XL. Now in this pictures I'm 28 weeks and weighted around 280 bra size 42D. I wasn't bothered with the opening of the dress in the cleavage area because I read reviews before and I was expecting that. My arms are big and it didn't feel like it was tight. I feel like it fitted perfectly. I ordered the biggest size available at that time and I think it was a 4XL, quality is good and it was brand new. I'll be using this for future pictures when my baby is born!

  • Comfortable Soft & Stretchy Fabric
  • Off the Shoulder w/ Ruffles
  • Splits on both sides. Fits loose.
  • Comes in 10 different colors
  • Size: Up to XL 

I purchased this dress to use for my maternity pictures, and I’m so glad that I did. What surprised me the most was how comfy it was, especially being 30 weeks pregnant! I was pleasantly surprised that it was actual a very good length on me even though I’m only 5 feet. I had bought another dress to use at my baby shower, and actually returned it to wear this one!

A little tight in the arms and not really sure how to put a bra with this. Fits nice though. I’m 280 lbs and 6’0 tall and the dress drags on the floor so that’s a super plus!

Starting at $75.50 at Torrid

  • Lace Knit Fabric,  Faux Wrap, V-Neck Neckline
  • Scalloped trim, Short Sleeves
  • Color: Navy
  • Up to 6XL (US Women’s Size 10-30)

Starting at $19.99 at Amazon

  • Short Sleeve, Not lined
  • Comes in 24 different colors and/or prints
  • Up to Size 26 (US Women’s Size 14-26)
  • Floor length

First, let me say “it has pockets!” I’m a bigger girl (227 lbs) and have had two children. I have the mom pouch. This dress concealed that rather well! My daughters and I had a mom and me photo shoot and the dress was perfect. I’m also 5’4” and the dress went right to the top of my feet. I did have to hold it up a tad bit to walk but I’m ok with that as I wanted it to lay on top of my feet. Every maxi dress I’ve bought before, the dress comes to my ankles. This dress is stretchy and has a lot of wiggle room. I bought a 2x or size 20. Also, the dress isn’t dirty or anything, those are water droplets 🙂

Tanita, mom of 2 purchased 2XL

Starting at $27.99 at Amazon

  • Soft Stretchy Knit Fabric, Scoop Neckline
  • Short Sleeve or Long Sleeve, Not lined, Pockets
  • Comes in 19 different colors and/or prints
  • Up to Size 26 Plus (US Women’s Size 14-26) 
  • Floor length

I am 5”8 and 205lbs (purchased size16, and fit an XXL at Target or Macy’s) with my weight settling in my stomach as if I just had a baby (which is true ha). It is very hard to find attractive clothes that camouflage my lack of waistline. I was so surprised that this dress looked as good as advertised for this price!!!! Packaged professionally and with cute tags, I was very happy at the quality (fabric is thinner but not see-through), length, and cut of this dress. It does state to hand wash and line dry, but I put it in the washer on delicate cycle and dried on low for 20 minutes without noticing a difference. I highly recommend this clothing line. I actually bought two more dresses I was so happy!

Victoria, purchased 16 Plus

Starting at $27.99 at Amazon

  • Off the shoulder
  • Comes in 8 different colors
  • Up to Size 3XL

Cannot bet this dress for the price! I used it in maternity pics... seriously perfect! Highly suggest!

The Takeaway

Finding cute plus-size maternity dresses can be fun! There’s many different styles, colors and prints to choose from.

When it comes to choosing the right dress it really depends on the fit. The dress itself doesn’t need to be a “plus-size maternity” dress, you can buy a regular plus-size dress and just be sure to buy a size or two up. Just be sure to pay close attention to the fabric, style and fit the dress. This is why reading the previous reviews is so important. 

If you are still on the fence about any of the plus-size maternity dresses listed above, please feel free to check out Amazon, Etsy, Torrid, SHEIN, Lane Bryant, Baltic Born, TargetEloquii, PlushBlush MaternityTBDressWalmart or City Chic for other options. 

Also, keep mind that if there’s a free return policy you can order a few different options to try them on, see what you actually like, and then send the ones you don’t like back.
