Olivia Wilde's Skin-Tight Pregnancy Style Is Perfect (PHOTO)

by Michele Zipp 

olivia wildeOh Olivia Wilde. You are dressing your baby bump so perfectly! She's proof you can wear just about anything -- even skin tight clothes -- during pregnancy. Hahahahaha! Okay, okay! We all know that isn't exactly true. Our babies and bodies grow differently when pregnant and some women can squeeze into their "regular" clothes way into the second or even third trimester, while others are shopping maternity section right away. Or like I preferred to do -- go a size or two (or three) up. The key is to still wear whatever styles you are into and take lots of photos.

Seriously. That's the key. You have to document the beauty of your baby growing in your body. And Olivia strikes the perfect side pose in this form-fitting dress to show it off.

More from The Stir: Olivia Wilde's Pregnancy Just Kind of Happened

It doesn't matter how much weight you gained or didn't gain or if you put those pounds on your belly, butt, or nose (my nose got wider and bigger!). What matters is taking care of yourself and baby in there, and being whatever healthy weight that is healthy for you.

Olivia, and fiancé Jason Sudeikis, seem to be really enjoying these early months of pregnancy. They recently attended a Kanye West concert. Baby's so cool already! (I took my twins to a Wilco concert while they were still gestating. They loved it.)

I also love how Olivia isn't afraid to wear a tight dress to really show off her beautiful pregnancy. And that dress? Gorgeous.

What do you think of Olivia Wilde's pregnancy style? Would you (or did you) wear form-fitting clothes, too?

I wore a lot of fitted stuff. I had an excuse for that tummy - baggy clothes just made me look pudgy.... Fitted made me look cute and pregnant. :)

 When I was pregnant I showed it off. I wore form fitting clothes. I was happy about being pregnant and that I was going to be a mommy.

I did once I got past the stage of looking fat and actually looked pregnant and plan to do the same thing with my current pregnancy.

I absolutely LOVED my belly while I was pregnant. Thankfully I barely gained any weight (25 pounds) and it was all in my belly/boobs. I loved showing off my stomach and I felt so womanly and beautiful. As long as you are comfortable wearing form fitting clothes and they compliment your body then I don't see why you have to dress 'fumpy' while you're pregnant. There is nothing more womanly than being pregnant so show it off!

I did, I was super pregnant in winter and sweater dresses etc looked adorable while pregnant. Plus, in baggy clothes, I just felt slobby. There is no reason to dress gross just because you have a baby on board. I never even bought maternity clothes, I just wore bigger sizes than usual.

When i was pregnat with my DD i did, but getting pregnant with DS only a few months after she was born I didnt have time to lose the baby weight. So I was extra big. Didnt feel pregnant at all with him. Ijust felt fat and blah. So I stuck with comfy loose fitting clothes when i was pregnant with him.

I wore both. I wasnt trying to hide my belly, but many times the looser stuff was just more comfortable. For going out, going to work or partying I used fitted. For home, shopping and hanging out with family and/or friendsI used loose
