kate middleton issa maternity dress

If you follow the fashion adventures of Kate Middleton, and we know that you do (oh yes, we do!) then you'll want to tune in to this blog post. Especially if you're pregnant. Well, actually only if you're pregnant. Apologies to everyone else!

The blue Issa dress which was made famous by the Duchess of Cambridge at the announcement of her engagement to Prince William has been reinterpreted for the mothers-to-be out there. Issa has figured out another way to capitalise on its best-selling wrap around dress by re-releasing the dress in maternity sizes. Now that's what you call some very clever marketing.

Sold via Blossom Mother and Child, the Issa classic silk wrap dress in indigo blue is available for £522 online. Of course we all know how much the original version of this dress flew off the racks following Kate and Wills' engagement announcement. Then there were the copycat versions. But we promise this is the real deal, so much so that it might just be worth getting pregnant over. Just kidding!

If you're on the hunt for some Kate-inspired maternity wear that is a little more budget-friendly then perhaps some Gap jeggings might interest you? The Duchess was spotted just last weekend eyeing up a pair as she shopped along the Kings Road in Chelsea. Sources claim she took a keen interest in the jeggings because she likes "very skinny jeans," but in the end decided not to purchase a pair. Read all about her shopping outing here.
