Pregnancy is a beautiful phase in a woman’s life – meant to be embraced and celebrated. But let’s face it – dressing up during pregnancy can sometimes be hard with multitude of thoughts running in your mind each time you decide to shop – will this fit me in the long run especially since my body is continuously changing? Will I look good in this dress that’s showing off my curves? Oh this looks beautiful but it isn’t comfortable at all and so on. Worry not , these easy tips will help you stay true to your style and make maternity fashion as easy as can be!
Resist your temptation to raid your husband’s closet
Many women may agree that the easy way to solve the clothing dilemma is to wear larger clothes. Resist your temptation! You deserve to look great during your pregnancy, and wearing clothes cut to flatter your sexy new figure will give you the confidence you need to embark on this new phase of your life.
Choose comfortable yet fashionable pieces and fabrics
While picking clothes, choose a combination of fashion and comfort. Choose cottons and lycras that are soft and airy for maximum comfort.
Empire waist and maxi dresses are no-brainers
Empire waist-line and maxi dresses are your maternity fashion best friends. Not only do they look classy and fun, they accentuate your curves and are extremely comfortable and airy.
Find pieces that will last you beyond pregnancy up until nursing
Invest in pieces that will fit you during pregnancy, yet will not only flatter your figure post pregnancy, but also help you transition into nursing easily.
Choose pieces with easy nursing accesses like front lift ups,
Raid your existing closet
Look at your existing closet for loose fitted tops and dresses. Make them a tad bit trendy by just adding a belt at the empire line. Wearing a loose-fitting dress and pinching it in just above your bump is a subtle way to show off your figure.
Even if it’s a tiny trinklet or a gold necklace, add it to your look. It will make you look even more dazzling. A long neck piece or a chunky piece of jewellery just adds to the glam quotient.
Cover-ups are an absolute must have in your maternity wardrobe. Wear jackets over anything in your wardrobe and you’re set. Or simply wear a long cardigan or coverup that makes you look sleek and adds to your height
Keep it low on the feet
During pregnancy, comfort and fashion go hand in hand. Your feet at times may feel a bit swollen , so its important to wear comfortable shoes most times : peep-toes , open sandals and sneakers are an expecting mommies best friend.
Pump up the hair
Bringing your baby into the world is a new change, so why not pamper yourself and celebrate this change, just spunk up your locks. If your hair are usually curly, straighten them or if they’re usually straight, just curl them. Beautiful braids are also in and add a touch of style and glam!
Own your confidence
Nothing is more fashionable than confidence! You’re a beautiful life bearing force, whatever style you chose during your pregnancy, own your confidence and shine bright.
