I can’t remember how I first learned about Of Mercer. However, I must have been intrigued enough to schedule a personal shopping appointment during a (pre-COVID) work trip to New York. I wasn’t pregnant at the time, but if I had been, the Cornelia dress would have definitely been on the top of my must-try list.
I am a huge proponent of non-maternity maternity clothes (or at least, maternity clothes that look like clothes you’d wear even when you’re not pregnant) that you can wear long after welcoming your baby into the world.
This dress checks all of my boxes: I love the softness and drape of bamboo fabric, it’s machine washable, and the three rich jewel tones are perfect for fall and winter. Given the stretch of the fabric and the neckline’s hook-and-eye closure, this dress looks nursing and pumping-friendly too.
It is $185 and available in sizes XS–2X. Cornelia Dress
