I know I'll catch a lot of crud for this but I have to say - her maternity fashion sense is awful! As a whole, I think I dressed better throughout my recent pregnancy than she, a PRINCESS with a nice fashion budget, does. Her hair never looks properly done. She literally just throws it in a ponytail every morning and goes about her appearances. The clothes are dowdy and old-fashioed maternity wear (like 20 years ago when no one thought maternity fashion could look stylish). Mary, Mathilde, and even Maxima did better. I wish she'd stepped it up. *sigh*

Its not so much about being a fashionista, rather about making an effort. Almost since marriage and pregancy, basically when Victoria got what she wanted in life, a husband and a family, the effort was gone and I doubt it will come back.

IMO she wore a lot of smart daytime outfits between getting married and pregnancy. She radiated happiness in her close-fitting bright-coloured dresses.

Not to mention the evening dresses.

I'll stay hopeful!

As a woman who was pregnant three times, I can tell you that for many of us fashion was the LAST thing on our minds. Comfortable clothes were a necessity. I couldn't stand to have any weight at all on my midsection from the time I became pregnant: it was almost the first indication that I WAS pregnant. Waistbands were horribly uncomfortable from day one and even t-shirts were too tight and constricting so I went to "tents" quite early on. Any heel over 1" made my back ache for days. I had morning sickness for seven months. I was totally exhausted all the time, some days my only accomplishment while carrying my youngest was to get dressed and take care of my toddler. And yes, I kept right on working when I was pregnant the first time and didn't miss a day. We don't know just how HRH has felt during her months of waiting as she has carried out her duties, so I'm sure we can all cut her some slack over what she's wearing.

Getting off my soapbox.

I don't have children but being pregnant looks uncomfortable the last in Victoria's mind is clothes.

and perhaps the season doesnt help too!!! i dont have children too, but my mom told me that with my brother she felt uncomfortable and heavy and didnt care about fashion that much and went to dress clothes like "tents" (my bro was a big baby and it was during winter). with me, it was the opposite, it was a summer pregnancy as i was born in September and i was small, i see pictures of my mom from 20 years back and she was fashionable and cute during her second pregnancy.
so maybe Victoria feels uncomfortable, and its winter (there are not many choices of clothes) and the baby seems to be a big one too. but my mom was a regular person and Victoria is the crown princess, at least just a bit more effort and i would be glad! at least her gala(eveningwear) clothes were a plus^^

Looks like a very pretty and feminine blouse, I quite like it this time.

I've never been pregnant, but when I do I at least want to look fashionable. I think a lot of pregnant women use pregnancy as an excuse to not look their best. Victoria doesn't have to wear heels. But she could at least do something with her hair! Since this pregnancy news got out she has been looking unkempt. She's a royal she could make more of an effort to look great.

When she's just lounging round her Palace she can wear whatever she wants. The issue is that she's on official business so she can't just not make an effort because she's pregnant. I really don't see why it's so hard. Surely she has a dresser and assistants who can help her with sourcing maternity wear, seamstresses who can tailor it to Victoria's specification and someone who could do anything different with her hair!

It's one thing for an ordinary mum on her 2nd or 3rd pregnancy to not go to a whole lot of effort. But, Victoria has lots of money and staff on hand to take the stress out of this for her. I just find it so strange that her maternity wardrobe has been so poor.

Victoria also has help - even for a fashion choices - something most of us don't.

I think so this is IMO got it .... Victoria is NOT a normal pregnant young woman she is a CP and future Queen ... so based on that .. let's give here a break... in the fashion stakes does not IMO stack in her favour.
She feels yuk I'm sorry but this is her job and frankly we all have to work hard and perform in the public arena when life is not going our way... so the question begs what is Victoria thinking looking like a mother of many who is working 2 jobs to keep food on the table.
This is a shame IMO. This is a fashion thread and I believe it's fashion we are here to comment on is that correct ??? so IMO Victoria has looked 99% disappointing ... as I said previously she doesn't have to pop on the wash before quickly zipping out to open this or sit in on that and this look of hers IMO has been the look of one who is doing just that.

The swedish royal family gave a farewell lunch to the finnish president Tarja Halonen and her husband Pentti Arajärvi.
Victoria looked very lovely in her dark blue maternity dress.

Very likely one of the last maternity outfits we'll see of this pregnancy - nice


Here's another full view pic and a side view pic with the clutch!
