Why you should wear a baby dress in 2018
“A baby shower dress is just the right size for a baby, whether they’re a toddler or a grown-up,” says Kimberly Dolan, a pediatrician and mother of two in San Diego.
“The fabric is breathable and the lining is soft.”
Dolan recommends a dress that fits snugly and doesn’t allow room to breathe.
The dress can also be worn by someone with a short torso, but it needs to be more snug to keep from getting too warm.
“If you want to wear a dress, try on it, see if it fits, and then take it off.”
When it comes to baby shower dresses, Dolan is a big fan of the Baby Doll Dress.
It’s lightweight, comfortable, and fits like a glove, she says.
“It’s a dress for all sizes, not just babies,” she says, adding that a baby should be in the 3- to 6-month-old range, and a toddler should be between the ages of 1 and 6.
“I’m so excited to wear the Baby doll dress in the future, because it will fit so well with my baby, and my baby will love it!”
Dolan also recommends that baby showerers choose a dress based on the shape of their baby, their skin tone, and the size of their hips.
For example, a baby who is a little too large will have a smaller waistline than a baby with the same size waist.
“For most babies, the dress is the perfect size,” says Dolan.
“A dress that hugs the belly and does not allow the baby to breathe will be too big for a little girl, or a dress with a lot of room for the baby.”
“I wear a size 2, but when I get older, I think a size 6 is perfect for me.”
Dania says she wears a size 8 dress, which is just under a size 10.
“My mom is in her 30s, and I think she’d be a little smaller than me, so I go with a size 11,” she said.
“You don’t want to be too small, because you’ll get hot, and you’ll feel uncomfortable.
I also have a lot more energy than a lot, so if I wear a smaller size, I feel like I have more energy, and it’s not like I’m being fat.”
Diaels’ favorite baby shower gowns include the Soho Baby Doll, a lace-up, floral, tulle, and lace-back dress with floral embroidery that is available in a variety of colors and styles.
“This dress has a lot to offer for a mother, because there’s no other dress like it,” she added.
“There’s a lot going on underneath, and that’s what you want.”
