Seems to me that Victoria is in the "damned if she does, damned if she doesn't" position with her maternity wear. Last pregnancy, a lot of the posters on this forum complained about her always wearing looser clothes, she's gone for the more fitted look this time and some people don't like it. Basically, it's quite a difficult time for fashion, the last trimester of pregnancy.

I think her pregnancy style this time around has been great! And I don't see that many complains either. She is more confident with her body, it's her second pregnancy and she got all the memories from the first (I never liked her style when pregnant with Estelle).

First time pregnancy can make women quite vulnerable and insecure, because it's a path they've never taken before, even if you read and see a lot on TV, it's never the same when you've experienced it yourself.

I didn't say there were a lot of complaints, I said "some people" don't like what she's wearing this pregnancy. But actually a fair number of people have commented negatively on the tightness of this latest outfit.

My point was, she's never going to please everyone so she should just please herself - if it's comfortable and appropriate for the occasion who cares what we strangers think?

Actually last time she went dark and wore a lot of loose and bulky clothes, almost like she was trying to disguise her pregnancy. She did not tend to wear actual maternity clothing until late in her pregnancy and, as kathia_sophia mentioned, she didn't look either confident or comfortable.

This time, we have been treated to a positive bouquet of gorgeous colour and the variety in style for both daywear and eveningwear has been wonderful. While Victoria has gone for more fitted ensembles for her second pregnancy, this has meant she has been both more 'on-trend' and 'trendsetter. When it comes to tight-fitting maternity wear is a given that many will find it not just unflattering but downright ugly . . . the dress, not Victoria, remember we are commenting on one ensemble and not her entire maternity wardrobe, therefore while absolutes are impossible, we care what she wears and we write about it because this is what this thread is about . . . opinions on Victoria's maternity fashion.

I was merely making a comment on the fact that some people didn't like what she wore during her first pregnancy and now that she has taken a different route some other people don't like that - therefore, she can't win. But it doesn't matter, because I doubt she comes to these forums to check what we think so it doesn't matter... to her.

I am aware of the purpose of this thread - I was posting about her fashion choices.

I think Victoria is pleasant person who always appears in good spirits! Any woman 9 months that has a wonderful smile looks good in any anything she can still fit into and still have wiggle room! I think she looks fantastic - most heavily pregnant woman go fo the comfortable look only. Kudos to her!

I think, that Victoria looked PERFECT in her second pregnangy, much better than on the first one. The dresses supported her perfect belly body and shoed the growing joy with pride. Not to forget her 1000000 Watt smile :)
Highlights were the Nobel dresses, the dress on Nicolas Baptism, the flower dress in Middle America and her last dark-blue Evening Dress.

She had quite a few good looks but my fave is the beautiful purple gown from the Nobels But her glowing smile and happiness makes any outfit.

Very true. In fact, I'm willing to go out on a limb and say there truly was only one really hideous miss. That H&M dark blue lace over patterned outfit she wore a week and a bit ago. I detest the trend of fitted tight looking Maternity Fashion right now, but it needs to be simple and clean lines to it to remotely work IMO and that outfit was anything but!! If it had only been lace, it would have been fine, but not that and the beading patterns on it. That took it from great potential to cringe IMO.

Comparing now and her outfits when expecting Estelle, the difference is night and day!! I think that's true w/the second time around when expecting though, isn't it? This time you know what to expect and just how your body will change, so you're a bit better prepared when it comes to clothing choices from what I've seen w/Family and Friends.

My favourite is still that beautiful, lovely soft Lavender cocktail dress she wore during the Visit to Colombia. It was just so perfect on her and Victoria truly looked stunning that night. :)

True - I seem to remember it was the same with Letizia when she was expecting the Infantas. Her style while pregnant with Sofia was simpler and more tailored than when pregnant with Leonor.
