Looking good whilst being pregnant is no longer the struggle it was only five or ten years ago! Many high street stores carry their own maternity wear and further more with a big turn to internet shopping, you can find maternity fashion around every corner. There’s no need to skip on style whilst you are pregnant, you will never have this type of glow once you have had your child so make the most of it while you can and show off your bump with pride! If you are still a little concerned about what to wear whilst pregnant, here are a few handy tips to keep you ahead of fashion.
During the summer it’s great to wear maxi dresses; they are flattering for every shape and flow over a baby bump with ease. Maxi dresses are also bang on trend as well as being light and floaty for the warmer months. You can usually get away with wearing the same dress after you are pregnant too which makes this option really good value for money.
During the first signs of pregnancy you may be able to get away with wearing your normal clothes but as you get larger you might start feeling a little self-conscious about gaining weight. Jackets can help you out in this scenario. Try to go for longer jackets than you would normally wear. You can also have the cut of a jacket help you out. A single breasted cut along with a low neckline gives the impression of a lengthier, thinner body.
If you are looking for more support for your unexpected bust which will be constantly changing during your pregnancy week by week, go for an empire line in a dress or shirt. The line fits right under your bust giving you extra support while an elegant wrap around style is adopted to smooth over your lower torso.
Elasticated waists are a must during the last few months of pregnancy but they don’t always look super attractive. Using a tunic top in this situation makes for a great fashion statement whilst also coving that elastic.
