My baby bump is growing and my jeans don’t fit anymore… I find myself standing in front of my closet, staring at my clothes for minutes thinking what can I wear that will be comfortable.
I never bought maternity clothing for my first pregnancy and I never bothered about looking good. My entire pregnancy, I felt like a penguin. I hated looking in the mirror because all I would see was a “fat” person.
This time, I promised myself not to feel that way again! I want to embrace my body and look stylish throughout my pregnancy.
1. Buy a black pair of leggings
Leggings go with almost anything and is still a fashion trend. It’s comfortable and can be styled with heels or flats.
Accessories can change the look of an outfit and it’s something you can always use even after pregnancy.
3. Don’t be afraid to style your clothing with belts
I love wearing belts with dresses and I think it looks adorable on pregnant woman.
4. You can still use heels
I was scared during my first pregnancy but this time I’m rocking those heels! I prefer using wedges than pencil heels. If you used to wearing heels, don’t stop now.
5. Avoid overly baggy pants
I know, I think they comfortable too but the truth is it can give the illusion that you are larger than you really are. This was one of my mistakes during my first pregnancy.
6. Invest in a good pair of maternity jeans
This might be the most expensive clothing item you buy during pregnancy but it will be worth it. I love jeans and I miss my skinny ones so I’m currently searching for a good pair that I can wear throughout my pregnancy.
7. Maxi dresses and skirts
Comfortable yet stylish too! I think every pregnant woman needs at least one.
8. Dress stylish but comfortable
Don’t try to change your style too much. Stay true to who you are but experiment when you can especially for those pregnancy pictures.
9. Wear Make-up/Style your hair
I’m currently breaking out because of my pregnancy but by doing my make-up, I have the confidence to still leave the house feeling/looking good.
10. Raid your closet
There’s definitely something there that you still use like an open-front cardigan, jacket, or a blazer.
Pregnancy is a wonderful time for all moms and it’s important to feel good in what you are wearing, relaxed with no hassles or fuss. Fashionable maternity clothes are good for physical and mental wellbeing, showing the world that you are proud of your accomplishment.
