Personal Shopper: Leopard Print Maternity Dresses for Naya

Naya W. wrote, "Hi Outblush! I've been a long-time reader and fan! I always enjoy the recurring themes of bacon and mustaches in the blog. I would like to put in a personal shopper request of my own. I love that leopard print is going to be a very big trend for this fall. I love it and can't get enough! However, I'm pregnant with my first child (due in January!) and have been having a hard time finding a leopard print maternity dress. Just because I'm going to be a mom doesn't mean I want to stick with solid colored dresses or not follow trends. I was a size 14-16 pre-pregnancy, but I'm not sure if that falls into the plus size category or not. I'd love to wear said leopard print dress to my baby shower in a few months. I'd like to stay under $120 if possible (baby stuff isn't cheap!). I'd love to see what you come up with! Thanks in advance! Naya"

Wow, Naya, this was nigh-on impossible. There were only a few leopard print maternity dresses out there, most on summer clearance and only available in a size 2 (who stays a size TWO when they're PREGNANT, anyways?). But, I did manage to find a few pieces - some dresses (one zebra print), some tops, and one plus-sized dress that you could order up a size or few to make room for the belly, then have the bust/shoulders tailored down.

1 - Torrid Brown Leopard Diamond Hem Dress ($40 on sale: not technically a maternity dress but you could order up a couple sizes to accommodate the belly, then have it tailored to fit)

2 - ASOS Maternity Leopard Printed Top ($30)

3 - Sanctuary Sleeveless Scoop Neck Pocket Tee Maternity Tank Top ($45 on sale)

4 - A Pea In the Pod Velvet Long Sleeve V-Neck Hardware Detail Maternity T-Shirt ($90 on sale)

5 - Nicole Michelle Maternity Leopard Burnout Dress ($259 - expensive, but pretty much the only *true* leopard print maternity dress I could find!)

6 - Lavish by Heidi Klum Sleeveless Empire Seam Maternity Maxi Dress - $100 on sale)

7 - Trendy Tummy Flirty Animal Print Maternity Dress ($68)

8 - Leopard Print Maternity Top w/ Brown Pants ($29)

Thank you Janetor and Personal Shopper Ladies! These are great!! I'm pretty sure that Heidi Klum option will be ordered this evening. Leopard print or not, it's a gorgeous dress!
