So you’ve scheduled your maternity shoot and now you’re wondering “What do I wear?’
I don’t know too many pregnant women who have gorgeous maternity dresses lying around their closets. I know how frustrating trying to find dresses for a special occasion can be while pregnant, so I’ve created this list of some of my favorite white maternity dresses. Why white you say? Well, in my humble opinion white is such a timeless, ethereal color and pairs so well with a growing baby bump (and looks stunning for maternity photos).
But enough of the chit-chat, here are some great options to consider whether you’re on a budget or can afford to splurge a little.

Top White Maternity Dresses from Amazon
Amazon has tons of great options for maternity dresses. These can be great if you want to try a few out and pick the ones you like.
1. Saslax Off-Shoulder Dress | AMAZON
With almost 9,000 Amazon reviews this dress is a crowd-favorite. It’s also great for moms who like to be a little more modest with their dress choices since it can be worn off the shoulder or on the shoulder. A huge plus is this dress can do double duty as a baby shower dress as well.
2. Saslax Chiffon Sleeve Dress | AMAZON
If you want a little more pizzazz in your dress, this is a great option. With balloon chiffon sleeves and ruffle chiffon detailing in the skirt, this dress is sure to wow! The stretchy double-lined fabric is more than capable of complementing a growing baby bump and looking amazing while at it.
For the mom who’s more into minimalist maternity fashion, this dress is a great option. Since this dress is a blank slate, you can dress it up or dress it down to your heart’s content. With the long sleeves, it’s also a great option for an outdoor maternity session once fall weather starts to roll in.
4. Verdusa Round Neck Sleeveless Bodycon Dress | AMAZON
Another option firmly in the minimalist trendy camp is this super cute dress. Maybe best suited to earlier in pregnancy but would pair perfectly with lifestyle or outdoor maternity photos. Also, you can dress it up or down with the right accessories.
Top High-End Maternity Dresses
If you’re looking for an absolutely stunning white maternity dress, these are some of my favorites. Yes, they can be a little spendy when compared to the Amazon picks, but in my opinion, they are worth every penny.
5. The Kate Dress | KH.FASHION
Affectionately called “The Princess Dress” (by me) this gown is an absolute stunner with a price tag to match! Arguably, a maternity photoshoot is just as big of a deal as a wedding in my book so it’s worth the splurge! Also, this dress is the better investment since the resale value is much higher in the photography community than a wedding dress would be. Also with a high leg slit, you can choose if you’d like to show a bit more skin or cover up for a more modest look.
6. The Barbara Robe (Available In White) | KH. FASHION
For the moms who want to live out their lap of luxury fantasy, this robe is dripping in it. Paired with the right jewelry and hair and makeup choices it can absolutely be a knockout! Once again it’s a more pricey option but the feeling you’ll get while being photographed in it doesn’t have a price tag.
7. The Luana Gown (Available In White) | SILK FAIRIES
This gorgeous gown has been a longtime staple in maternity photography for a reason. It’s absolutely gorgeous and flattering on most body types. The romantic touch of the draping sleeves is the extra icing on the cake. I always recommend checking to see if you can grab it at a deal since it’s such a popular dress!
8. The Bianca Dress | BUMPSUIT
This dress looks like it easily could have been worn by a Kardashian during one of their pregnancies. And it could easily be reworn for multiple occasions which is always a huge plus! Since it’s stretchy and double lined, it’s built to last through multiple stages of pregnancy.
9. The Cut Out Linen Dress | BUMPSUIT
If looking like a Greek goddess is your thing, then this dress is perfect for you! It’s super light and airy with the chic cutouts. If you add some gorgeous gold bangles, earrings, and a breezy background you might be able to hear the faint beautiful sounds of Santorini wherever you go.
