So, post-baby shouldn’t be any different! Keira Knightley and her baby bump walking the Oscar red carpet in a breathtakingly beautiful floral Valentino Couture number is an iconic fashion statement.

Dresses are never off the table. It you feel self-conscious about your post-pregnancy belly you can always layer an outfit with a coat. Having a coat at hand means having your very own safety net.
