Pregnant and Proud: Fashion Tips for Moms/Mums-to-Be!
It is a common misconception amongst many women that pregnancy means a few months of feeling fat and frumpy. This should not be the case. In fact, pregnant women should embrace their beautiful pregnant selves and have fun translating their signature look into their temporary new body shape. Shopping for clothes during pregnancy should be just as much fun as shopping for clothes at any other time, you could even use the opportunity to change your style and try new things. You can look great pregnant just as you can at any other time.
Buy Maternity Clothing
Adapting your clothing style to pregnancy does not mean trying to squeeze into your existing clothes. A mistake many women make is to think that they can ignore maternity clothing entirely and buy non-maternity clothes a few sizes larger. This may work in the early stages of pregnancy but not in the latter stages when your belly has blossomed. You may hide a bit of your bump with the extra fabric that non-maternity clothing has but you will also swamp all your body's other stunning curves.
Celebrate Your Bump
There is nothing more beautiful than a pregnant woman showcasing their belly and pregnancy cleavage. Embrace these and show off your new voluptuousness and radiant pregnant glow. You will find that tops which show of the contour of your pregnant belly are much more flattering that the 'tent look' where you try to cover up with yards of fabric. Your cleavage will rarely look better so why not wear some low v-necks and show it off?
The following items are must haves for the second trimester onwards:
• Black Dress – black dresses are slimming and match everything • Stretch Pants – these will accommodate your growing belly • Maternity T-shirts – wear these under undone button up shirts for a layered look • Maternity Jeans – these offer comfort as well as well as style. These don't necessarily have to be baggy. In early pregnancy a pair that sits on the hips is great, and for later on in the pregnancy choose a pair which are stretchy or have flattering panels. A stretchy denim fabric also offers the most comfort.
