Maternity Size Guide

What size maternity clothes should I buy?

Maternity clothing sizes work the same as regular ones do, meaning, you're the same size in maternity clothes that you are in regular clothes.

If you normally wear a size medium, you'll be a maternity medium, too. If you buy a medium in the first trimester, that same medium will be a loyal companion all throughout your pregnancy (and beyond)! Cherry Melon clothing accommodates not only your growing belly and breasts but caters for normal weight gain too. 

If this is your first pregnancy, it's nearly impossible to figure out how your body will change as your pregnancy progresses. As a rule of thumb, we suggest that you stick to your pre-pregnancy size and do not 'size up'. Sizing up may lead to ill-fitting tops and pants being too big, which gives you that "dropped crotch" or "slipping down" feeling. But, everyone is different and it's important to get what's comfortable. 

We suggest buying a size up if (a) you have a very large bust (normal preggie growth excluded); (b) you feel like you have gained extra weight (above the normal weight gain range); (c) you're having twins or triplets.

Feeling a tad nervous about ordering online without the traditional "try on" experience? Fear not! Take your hip and bust measurements in centimeters and compare them to our handy-dandy size chart below:

SIZE: 32 / S / 8

COLOUR: BLACK WHITE STRIPE

Cherry Melon's Stripe Maternity Bodycon Dress was designed for the modern mom-to-be, effortlessly combining style and comfort. Whether you're layering up for cooler days or flaunting your curves with confidence, this dress is your go-to choice. The timeless black and white stripes add a touch of chic to any maternity outfit, ensuring you stay fashion-forward throughout your pregnancy.

Crafted to showcase your figure and cradle your baby bump, this dress exudes both conservatism and sexiness. Subtle ruching at the sides offers room for growth, accommodating you from the early stages of pregnancy all the way to the fabulous 9-month mark and beyond. And here's a surprising fact – horizontal stripes can be even more flattering than vertical ones when worn correctly! Trust us, this dress knows how to accentuate and distract in all the right places.

From casual outings to special occasions, this bodycon dress goes with everything, making it a must-have for your maternity capsule wardrobe. Simply throw it on with a coat for an instant boost of style, or layer with a denim jacket for a laid-back vibe.

Bonus: because it's in a classic black and white stripe, you can wear it again and again styled in so many different ways (p.s nobody will know).

  • When: Wear it before, during and after pregnancy and beyond into Motherhood!
  • Fabric: Ponti Roma
