Figure-hugging dresses are one of the most unforgiving wardrobe choices out there.
Made even more famous in the mass market through Herve Leger's famously skin-tight bandage dress, such designs leave little to the imagination when seen on the many celebrities who often wear them.
But as Camila Alves, the pregnant Brazilian model wife of actor Matthew McConaughey, showed last night in New York, an extremely tight fit might be better worn as a maternity dress.

An unforgiving blue and green geometric print dress from Macy's private label I.N.C. International Concepts, was spotted on the 30-year-old as she attended the premiere of her husband's upcoming film Killer Joe.
As she let her growing bump show through, there was clearly no need for any type of body-contouring undergarments which are commonly worn under such snug designs.

growing league of famous women who are taking advantage of the style during their pregnancies.
