I’m officially into my third trimester with baby #2 and everything is starting to feel VERY real. We have a good bit to do before this baby comes (namely getting the nursery at least somewhat cleaned out since it’s currently a storage space for things that we want to keep but don’t know where). With the holidays coming up and my parents coming to visit, I know that I have to get things in order sooner rather than later because baby could come any time.
One of the things that has made the last month or so of pregnancy really fun is discovering Pink Blush Maternity clothes. I typically don’t like true maternity clothes since the majority of them are boring or look the same at every retailer. Also, since I am petite (5’1″), most maternity brands drown my frame.
All that to say, when Pink Blush Maternity reached out and offered to send a few things for me to try, I was skeptical. While Pink Blush isn’t only for petite women, they do have a petite-friendly maternity section which is how I narrowed down what to get.
But, I was blown away by how well the items fit my petite frame and how flattering and on-trend their pieces are (so many brands just sell off-the-shoulder fitted dresses, wrap dresses or giant tunic tops!). Not the case here.
While I was unboxing my order, I filmed a video review of each piece that I shared on YouTube. If you want to see how each item looks in motion, you can find that video here on YouTube or click play below. You can probably sense my true surprise at how much I liked them.
If photos are more your speed, below you’ll find pictures of everything I tried on. I also include the sizing details and tips. I shared a few other Pink Blush maternity dresses a roundup of maternity photoshoot dresses (both midi and maxi dresses). So, check that out as well.
If you order anything, use code TERILYN25 at checkout to save 25% on your order. The code expires on 11/10, so don’t wait! And if you spend over $100, you’ll get free shipping as well. However, sometimes they have better codes on their site so check that first. I don’t think my coupon code stacks but it’s worth trying.
First on the list is this taupe mock neck midi dress that I’ve already worn a handful of times. I even wore it to my husband’s high school reunion, if that gives you an idea of how confident I feel in it. I LOVE the color for fall, and it’s easy to style with many different shoes because of the neutral tone. The mock neck and long sleeves make it appropriate for casual fall or winter events. But the fitted style can also be dressed up for a fun evening event. And of course, because it’s a knit dress, it’s incredibly comfortable. I’m wearing a size small.
The small slit at the bottom makes it very easy to walk in. Also, it keeps me from having to pull the dress down all day like I have to do with some fitted midi dresses that rise as you walk. This is by far my favorite find from Pink Blush because I can wear it so many times this season.
Typically midi dresses end up being more like maxi dresses on me. However, this hits in exactly the right spot so it’s a great option for short girls like me. I have a size small.
Next is the second photo I shared above. If you’re looking for a simple (but slightly sexy) dress to wear for a cocktail event this fall or winter, this mini knit dress is a great find. It’s incredibly flattering and comfortable, and the length is flirty and short which feels like the perfect option for a cocktail party. Of course you could also wear it casually with sneakers too.
However, as I walked, it rode up a little bit making it even shorter so there is no way someone tall could wear this. And even being as short as I am (5’1″), I found it too short for my comfort level. If you want to try it, perhaps size up to see if it gets you a little more length. I’m wearing a size small.
I own this side-slit sweater dress in a dark green that’s currently sold out, but the fit and style is so good that I had to share the available purple colorway. Square necklines are so flattering and feminine which is what initially drew me to it, but I also love the bubble sleeves. I can get self conscious about my arms in pregnancy since I easily gain weight there and the sleeves help me feel confident.
The length makes it appropriate for church, a nice dinner, date night, or any evening functions, and the long sleeves are perfect for the cooler weather. I love this dress so much that I may end up ordering this purple as well. The photos below are from the unavailable color-way but I wanted to show how it looks on!
This would be a perfect dress for casual fall or winter weddings you have this season. This definitely fits a little longer than the taupe dress above and runs a little large by comparison, but I think it still works well on my petite frame. And, I still have 3 more months to go, so I do have room to grow in it. I am wearing an XS.
I was really excited to find this sleeveless mock neck dress because I knew it would be really cute with a blazer. Similarly to the dresses above, it’s fitted and comfortable with a slight sexy edge. I styled this dress with one of my favorite blazers (this Abercrombie wool option is similar since mine is sold out!) and the look was exactly what I was going for.
Unfortunately the orange color-way I’m wearing is sold out, but you can still snag this dress in a fun fuchsia. I have size medium in this and even that felt small so size up two sizes perhaps. Or, go for this rust orange dress that is a longer style.
Below are dresses that I haven’t tried yet but that I have in my cart. I also shared sizing details of what I plan to order based on the reviews and how other items I own are fitting.
I love a good sweater dress AND turtleneck, and this olive cable knit dress is just perfect. The color is ideal for fall and winter (and so easy to style with leather booties), and the cozy fit is something I’d wear daily. I am definitely going to order this to wear throughout the winter with this growing bump.
Given that their mini dresses tend to indeed be mini, I’m going to order medium.
None of the dresses I ordered from Pink Blush had a waist tie, and so I’m thinking I definitely need to place a second order so I can snag this brown tie front midi dress. I love that the tie accentuates your bump and the dark brown color-way would be super slimming. I’d style this with leather clogs or booties. I think a small will work well in this but I might size up to a medium for room to grow.
I had to add this red textured midi dress to the post because it’s such a perfect holiday dress! While it’s a little too casual for a holiday cocktail party, it’s PERFECT for holiday themed things at your child’s school, lunch with girls, or a more casual date night. I’d likely wear this dress with heeled clogs and simple gold jewelry.
I have a small in my cart since it’s loose and oversized. I expect the sleeves will be too long but I can push those up.
I absolutely LOVE this v-neck long sleeve maternity top. I was just starting to get to the point where my tops and sweaters were getting too short when this arrived and it saved the day. Not only is it a great neutral color that you could wear with a ton of different bottoms, but it’s also subtly sexy and could easily be dressed up for a date night or dinner with friends.
I have size small and honestly am not sure this will work for much longer since it’s already getting a little short, so perhaps size up in this one. I mean, how is anyone who is NOT petite shopping on their site? But hey, lucky for us.
I also noticed a very similar looking dress in the same mocha color, so if you’re a dress girl, you may love this find!
The next top I added to my cart was this brown ribbed turtleneck. I’ve always loved a turtleneck in the winters and this brown color is gorgeous in person. I love that it’s fitted and flattering but long enough to truly cover my bump and maternity jeans band. I have a size small which is currently sold out, but the other sizes are still available. If you need a small, check out this ribbed turtleneck as a similar alternative.
Another great maternity top find, but this time it’s a sweater! While you can easily size up in your favorite affordable sweaters for pregnancy, it’s really nice to have a true maternity sweater that fits perfectly. especially now that the temps have dropped significantly! This black bubble sweater is a great simple basic, but the bubble sleeves add just a little bit of extra interest.
I have a size small and it’s pretty boxy so there is definitely room to grow. Size down if you’re on the fence. To be honest, this was my least favorite option but it’s a solid pick for simple black sweater.
I don’t own these but they’re in my cart.
I LOVE me some stripes, and this beige striped sweater is calling my name. I love the side slits and the black trim on the bottom. It reminds me so much of this $570 Toteme sweater but for a much better price point. You can style this with jeans (especially black jeans!) or also dress it way down with leggings.
I have a small in my cart since it looks like it has enough length as it is.
At first glance, this navy sweatshirt style top looks plain and simple, but if you look a little closer you’ll see the sweetest embroidery/lace on the sleeves. Touches like this make a throw-over sweatshirt so much more special. If you’re going to wear a sweatshirt and leggings a lot while you’re pregnant, it may as well be feminine and cute like this, right?
I have a medium in my cart since it’s a casual option and I’d like it to fit pretty oversized and have enough length to wear with leggings and cover my bottom.
We’ve all seen funnel neck sweaters with this trendy dolman sleeve before, but I find them SO much more beautiful with a bump! Without a bump, I find that there’s too much slouchy material, but a bump fills the sweater so beautifully. You could dress this top with jeans or down with leggings. It comes in a TON of colors, too!
I love that this sweater is longer than most and somewhat fitted, but it’s not skin tight. I don’t want this oversized since I want to be sure my bump shows, so I have a small in my cart.
When I tell you that these dark wash skinny jeans are THE most flattering maternity jeans I’ve tried so far, I mean it. And I have tried five different brands (and even more styles) for maternity jeans. The material is super stretchy and comfortable, the length works well on my petite frame (I’m 5’1″). They could be hemmed a little so they hit above the ankle bone (the ideal length for skinny jeans) but honestly I think they’re fine as is.
The belly band is smooth and comfortable (and doesn’t show underneath fitted tops), and the wash of the jeans is the perfect color for every single day. It’s both dressy and casual.
However, while these are more flattering than my Madewell maternity skinny jeans, they don’t stay up as well and I find myself pulling them up throughout the day. I went up one from my usual, non-pregnancy size and I probably should have ordered my usual size 25.
But if you want a more budget-friendly maternity skinny jean and don’t mind that, I think the Pink Blush ones are a great option.
I’m a white jeans connoisseur, and these wide leg maternity jeans look like something I’d LOVE. While I already have some white maternity jeans, they are a relaxed, straight leg style. This wide leg style would be perfect styled with some heels (sort of like wide leg trousers) for a dressier look. I also love that’s a more creamy, winter white than a true white and they’d look beautiful with the fitted turtleneck I showed above,
I have a size 25 in my cart.
