If you are a plus size mama or mama-to-be, and struggling to find a beautiful maternity gown or bump friendly dress that will make you look and feel amazing, you've come to the right place! Here at Mama Rentals, we celebrate women of all shapes and sizes, so we have curated a large collection of bump-friendly gowns that are just perfect for plus size (Australian size 18-22) mama's maternity or family photo sessions. These dresses feature a flowy design, so you will feel super comfortable in them, while still giving you a beautiful, feminine silhouette. Here are our top picks!
Featuring a flattering V-neckline, long sleeves with a generous amount of fabric around the bump, hip and arms, it enhances all the right places and yet gives enough coverage for your growing figure. It can be fully opened up to wear as a duster too. We love how our beautiful client Melissa looks in this gown her family photo session below:)

This super popular Coven and Co Pirate Queen Maxi is one of our best sellers for all shapes and sizes. The size XL dress, although it is said to go up to size 16, can in fact go up to size 20-22. It is a wrap style dress with attached waist ties, so it is highly customisable to cover your growing bump. The fabric itself also has some stretch.
Our beautiful client Cathryn tells us how comfortable she feels in this gown being a size 20-22 and we love her family photos so much!

The Fillyboo Wonder Year embroidered maxi gown is an all time favourite gown for pregnant ladies here in Australia. We love how versatile and flexible it is to wear and style. You can wear it off the shoulder or on the shoulder, the detached waist tie is there to give you that beautiful silhouette while the rest of the dress is super loose and flowy. See our gorgeous client Michelle wearing the size XL in Ivory at her maternity session:

The Fillyboo Strawberry Fields maxi is of a similar style to the CLEO gown, however it features a deeper V-neckline.
