Girl, Yes! You most certainly can rock a mini dress while pregnant! One of my favorite lounge dresses is a thrifted Athleta Black V-Necked Topanga Dress. I wore it all the time before getting knocked up – so I figured why give up now!!! Allow those extra curves and thick thighs to elevate the sexy mamacita-ness! My strategy is:
