A Pea in the Pod

Best Maternity Eveningwear, August 2008

As your pregnant belly expands, your options for chic clothing to wear over it contract. Making matters worse, Liz Lange and Cadeau, two reliable stores for glam maternity clothing, recently closed. There’s still Maternal America, which carries youthful dresses in big prints, bright yellow, or bohemian crochet. The best selection, though, is at A Pea in the Pod, where gowns and cocktail dresses in lace and satin, some with spaghetti straps, make you a MILF before you’re even a mom. Caveat: Sizes run small, so this is not the place for those who have big frames to begin with.
