Mikarose Maxi Maternity Review

Hey there friends. Have you heard of Mikarose yet? Surely you have… They are a clothing company that specializes in lovely, modest dresses. If you have heard of them did you know that several of their dresses can double as nursing or maternity dresses!?! They’re not strictly designed for that purpose, but they work wonders doing double duty!

I was recently given the opportunity to review the Makenna Maxi from Mikarose as a maternity dress. The photos shown in this review show me at 30 weeks 4 days expecting.

The Makenna Maxi comes in three colors. The teal with white stripes shown in my photos, gray with white stripes and black with white stripes. I had yet to try a maxi dress but after hearing how comfortable they could be I had high expectations. Luckily the Makenna Maxi dress blew those expectations out of the water!

*Please excuse my squinty look here, wanted to show you one picture without the sunglasses, but now you can see why I put them on… haha

It’s made of a super soft viscose and spandex fabric. Which means it’s soft against your skin, but also stretchy to accommodate that growing baby belly. The detailed band around the waste helps the dress accent that baby belly as well.

The sleeves on the Makenna are at a length where my chubbier than normal maternity arms felt modestly covered and comfortable. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m a taller girl (5’7″) so it doesn’t drag the ground like I assume most maxi dresses are supposed to. Having it catch on my belly made it even shorter, but it wasn’t uncomfortably short. It still fell at a length to feel like a maxi dress.

Overall I am pleased with the Makenna Maxi dress and I’m thrilled to have a fashionable clothing item that I can take from maternity wear to AFTER baby comes! You can find out more about Mikarose here.

So tell me friends, have you jumped on the maxi dress train yet? How do you feel about maxi dresses?

Disclosure: I received the Makenna Maxi dress from Mikarose in exchange for my honest review. As always opinions shared here are 100% my own.

      Oh definitely!!! And I really look forward to it. So nice to have a piece I can transition through the entire summer!!!

  8. It looks really cute and comfy on you! I jumped on the maxi dress and skirt train two summers ago. Some of the maxis are more flattering than others, but I have both a white gauze maxi skirt, and a white spaghetti strap maxi dress that are not too clingy and look really nice. They are favorites of mine to wear!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Thanks Rebekah! Now that I’ve tried one maxi I’ve got my eye on a couple that look like they’ll be really flattering as well!
