I never had much reason to take into consideration women’s trends and maternity fashion until three years ago when I fell pregnant with my first child Leo. I did not even know if maternity fashion had trends.
Luckily for that first months I was in a position to just acquire one size bigger than my normal clothes however, if I hit the 5 month mark, I needed to create some fashion choices.
Firstly, did I want the bump to demonstrate. Was I a tight- t-shirts and leggings person or maybe more floaty discreet maternity dresses. Obviously every pregnant bump is beautiful in the own special way but I must admit that milk white tummies (I hate the term belly, particularly when its combined with beer) with greenish veins make me feel sickly, regardless of whether its my own, personal, so I chose feminine, floaty empire lined outfits.
The choices you make on your maternity outfits are usually harder than any other fashion decision. Firstly you wouldn’t like to spend thousands of pounds on the wardrobe of clothes which you are merely gonna be wearing for 9 months…hopefully. Secondly you will desire to look stylish and chic, but comfort must be paramount.
So where do you start? Generally in the initial few months and indeed inside last few months your too tired, sick and hot being bothered hoofing round the high streets all day at the same time. Therefore I suggested online clothes shopping or choosing the virtual wardrobe. It takes each of the strain and stress out of shopping and you can switch on your laptop, grab a cup full of tea and put the feet up.
I love the internet portals for many different high street shops of varying selling prices. This way you’ll be able to find one item, ie dresses and look at what all shops have to give you.
Identify what you really are destined to be doing in the next nine months. Are you mainly needing work outfits or have you been lucky enough being lounging around for the duration of this pregnancy. Do you need to consider Christmas and New Year clothes or would you need to put money into cool summer clothes if heavily pregnant during August.
I lived in dresses whilst pregnant. They make things far more easy. You don’t have annoying waist bands pulling round your bump and frequent visits for the bathroom tend to be quicker which has a dress than maternity jeans. Furthermore you can wear support tights underneath which decrease potential risk of blue veins and also other hideous things. Pick versatile items. Dresses created from jersey material are great as they are wearable from winter through to summer. One big fashion advantage for expecting mothers at this time will be the Maxi dress. You can look totally on-trend and become completely comfortable. Many designers even get them to using a slightly shorter front than back order to avoid nasty trips and falls.
Think carefully when selecting shoes. I was convinced I would maintain my sky-scraper heels right until the birth, but eventually you will resign yourself to comfort. And at this time flat doesn’t have to mean frumpy. Think brogues and military styled boots.
