Meghan Markle has been one to watch in terms of her fashion choices—from her looks on her first royal tour to her different tuxedos. Lately, people have been noticing her maternity outfits. One thing she has proven is that body-hugging dresses is a great way to show off your growing bump. This is also good way to wear the clothes that you already have in your closet if you don’t want to buy new maternity clothes. She’s done it at different events with varying dress codes and we found similar dresses that moms to be can add to their wardrobe too.
H&M MAMA Fine-knit Dress
One of Meghan’s more recent looks was in theme with the monochromatic trend. She wore a head-to-toe beige outfit when she visited The Mayhew, a charity that promotes animal welfare. The exact dress she wore is this one from H&M. It has a stand collar and gathered seams that will make the dress hug your bump better. It is also made of a knit material that feels soft against the skin. Available at Greenbelt 3.

Today The Duchess of Sussex made her first visit to @TheMayhew since becoming Patron – Mayhew is a grassroots charity working in a unique way to improve the lives of animals and people to better communities both in London and internationally. Mayhew looks for innovative ways to reduce the number of animals in need through pro-active community and educational initiatives and preventative veterinary care. Among the people she met was Wully, a formerly homeless pet refuge service user, and his two dogs Azzy and Gallis – The Duchess found out about the different ways Mayhew’s animal welfare officers have supported Wully and his pets over the past 11 years. Her Royal Highness also met Roobarb the dog, who is part of Mayhew’s dog therapy programme TheraPaws, which puts smiles on the faces of vulnerable individuals. The Duchess met volunteers who dedicate their time to Mayhew community programmes, including the trap, neuter and return programme, which controls and cares for the feral cat communities in London. And Her Royal Highness was also able to meet the team behind Mayhew’s international work, which includes an overseas vet training programme in countries like India and Afghanistan to help improve animal welfare.
Old Navy Maternity Sweater-knit Bodycon Midi Dress
Try color blocking red and purple just like Meghan. For the dress, pick up this wine-colored one from Old Navy. It has the same midi length and bodycon fit as Meghan’s. A red coat might be too hot for the Philippines so try layering with a thin cardigan instead. We can see mothers to be wearing this to lunch with the in-laws. Available at Eastwood Mall.
Mova Light Maternity Formal Gown
Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s Totem. Here, Meghan proved that pregnant women can rock it out in a gown. If you’re attending a formal event, try wearing a long gown that accentuates your baby bump. This navy blue gown has long lace sleeves and a mermaid silhouette. If you’re not comfortable wearing heels, go for pumps or flats instead. Available online.
Great Expectations One Shoulder Maternity Dress
At the British Fashion Awards last year, Meghan made a surprise appearance in a black Givenchy gown. It had a one-shoulder detail, hugged her bump and then draped beautifully on the bottom. Wear a similar version to your next meeting at work. This piece is also one shoulder but has a midi length perfect for the office. Wear it as is or layer it with a blazer. Available on Zalora PH.

#MeghanMarkle respondió de la manera más graciosa a una mujer que la llamó gorda La #duquesadeSussex demostró su buen sentido del humor Si hay algo de lo que Meghan Markle no prescindió cuando se convirtió en duquesa de Sussex, es su sentido del humor. El miércoles, la exactriz de 37 años, que está embarazada de seis meses de su primer hijo, visitó la caridad animal Mayhew en el norte de Londres, informó ETOnline, su primera visita al lugar desde que el Palacio de Kensington lo nombró uno de los patrocinios oficiales de Markle. Markle compartió risas e historias con varias damas de la organización benéfica, que discutieron la importancia de los animales de terapia. Sin embargo, una mujer hizo un comentario audaz a la duquesa embarazada. "¡Dama encantadora, lo eres!", Remarcó. “Que el buen Dios te bendiga siempre. ¡Y tú eres una mujer gorda! En respuesta, Markle soltó una carcajada y dijo: "¡Lo tomaré!" La revista People informó que Markle, una amante de los animales desde hace mucho tiempo, observó una serie de proyectos dirigidos por la organización benéfica, diseñados para mejorar la vida de los animales, así como a las personas que viven en Londres. Algunos de los proyectos incluyen visitas de terapia con animales, trabajo con personas sin hogar y sus mascotas, así como iniciativas internacionales, como la vacunación contra la rabia canina en Kabul.
Bonus: Topshop Fine Knitted Midi Dress
Like I said in the beginning, you can also use the clothes you already have that aren’t necessarily maternity. This one from Topshop is made of a knitted material, which can easily stretch over your belly. It also had double shoulder straps for extra support. Available at Power Plant Mall.
Bonus: Zara Knit High Neck Dress
Another option is this sleeveless dress that has a high neckline and an A-line silhouette. It also has two side slits, making it easier to move around. Available at SM Megamall.
