The Fabulous Fifties, maternity edition! Where can one find fifties-style/a-line dresses that are reminiscent of the fifties? Think Modcloth styling, but for a ginormous belly.

For those who are pear-shaped, or, more charitably, triangle-shaped, a-line, fifties styled clothing is often very flattering. Many maternity dresses are made out of clinging jersey or rayon, rather than a stiffer material, and, while comfortable, can be unforgiving to every little bulge. Can you give me some leads on some clothing that can be worn in the second and third trimesters that has that flattering retro shape?
For example the shape of this dress
for a pregnant person who's rapidly gaining a lot - A LOT - of weight.
