WHAT TO PAY ATTENTION TO IF YOU ARE PREGNANT
Mamas-to-be should also feel comfortable and great in their piq outfit.
Learn here what to pay attention to.
When is the best time to order my dress?
We recommend you order your outfit about 3-4 weeks before the event you'll need it for. During this time, your belly should not grow into needing a larger size anymore. If you are in doubt however, you may order also two sizes simultaneously and return the one that wont fit. If you live close to our showroom or one of our partner shops, we recommend you go for a personal fitting to find the right style and size for you.
Which styles fit me best if I am pregnant?
All our piq tops can be worn when pregnant. Nevertheless, our stretchy bodisuits are especially popular with pregnant customers. Our crop tops OLIVIA and ANINA are also perfect due to their cropped design as they can be worn inside the skirt when pregnant instead of over the skirt waistbelt. Our longer tops can also be worn with baby belly, draped loosely inside any of our skirts. Measure your bust (watch tutorial "How do I find the right size for me?) to find your perfect size.
Our skirts are very comfortable to wear thanks to an elastic insert in every waistbelt of our skirts. The skirts adjusts to your body and thanks to its elastic waistband does not constrict you. To find the right size for your skirt, do not measure your waist but just below your bust, where you will wear your skirt. If you are unsure what size to order, we recommend you order two sizes and choose at home when you can try which one fits you better and then return the other one within the return period. Especilly our tulle skirt bu also our satin skirts as for example the Lizzy skirt are very popular styles for pregnant women. We recommend to stay away from mini skirt length as the baby belly will make your skirt slightly shorter still in front.
In order to find the right size for your belt, don't measure around your usual waistline but just below your bust where you will wear your belt. If you are in your last term of your pregnancy, we recommend to go for thinner belts as they put less pressure on your belly. Especially popular are our ribbon belts as they are tied at any point you want, no matter how small or large your belly is. But also our slim crystal belts are a wonderful addition to your pregnant evening or wedding look. When sitting for alonger period of time, just tie your belt a few holes looser to make sure you'll feel comfortable all day long.
After the party is before the party
After your pregnangy, you may want to reduce the size of your piq outfit in order to continue wearing it. Not a problem! You can let your top and skirt be adjusted by any seamstress and continue to love you piq outfit every day. If you need help, just come by our piqyourdress Showroom and we'll be happy to offer that service. On a side note, a lot of pregnant brides choose a colored skirt for their wedding, combined with a top in ivory. This allows them to re-wear the skirt combined with a colored top as a guest to another wedding.
