Guest blog from Lucky magazine editor and CafeMom Meredith Rollins. She has a two-year-old son and is pregnant with her second, due in September.

I was shocked to see how little plus size maternity clothing there is online, and how little of it is really stylish (I'm sure you all have a lot to say about it, too). Which is why I was so psyched to find these two chic, versatile options, both of which happen to be marked down. They're simple enough that they'd be great for day, or you could dress them up with some layered necklaces and they'd work for any kind of evening out.

I love the dark blue color and draped neckline of this Plus Size Short Sleeve Stitch Detail Maternity Dress ($24.99, seen at right) from Motherhood Maternity. And the neckline on this black Crossover Sweetheart Neck Dress ($29.99, seen below left) from Duo's JCPenney line is my favorite elegantly-sexy detail.

And to add one non-maternity, not-on-sale dress to the mix: I really like this Wooden Necklace Maxi Dress ($22.80, seen above right) from Forever 21's plus line, Faith 21. (Remember, yes you can wear a long dress.)

I feel like the empire cut is roomy enough to fit a baby bump (at least in the first two trimesters), and it isn't breaking the bank. Plus, black is always flattering, and the beaded neckline means you don't even have to accessorize -- it's like a one-step outfit!

What do you think about the plus size maternity clothes out there?
