Dressing Fashionably While Pregnant

Selecting Maternity Clothes

Invest in a pair of good maternity pants.

It’s a good idea to invest in leggings or jeans that have an adjustable waistband. Jeans with a bootleg are stylish and flattering at the same time. Moreover, we can purchase comfortable and stretchy maternity skinny jeans that will go with most of the clothes we already have. If we are pregnant during the summer, we should consider buying a pair of cargo pants – they are more comfortable than jeans if the temperatures are high.

Wear maternity tops.

The goal of maternity clothes is to make our pregnant body look good while remaining comfortable. Instead of wearing a lot of fabric and baggy shirts, we should stick to flowing models that will accentuate our figure. If we could find ones with an empire waist or a fitted bodice, that would work best on our growing body.

Consider maternity dresses.

Just like with the shirts, empire-cut dresses or those with a fitted bodice will flatter our figure while we’re pregnant. There’s no need to lose our style just because we are pregnant. If we normally wear tops in vibrant colors or tops with fun prints, we can and should do the same during our pregnancy.

Maternity Dresses

Wear comfortable sandals and flats.

Our feet may swell during pregnancy, so it’s important to buy some new footwear that will fit our feet and make us comfortable. However, we should remember that our feet may go back to their normal size after pregnancy, so we shouldn’t buy expensive shoes, as we may only wear them for a couple of months.

In some stores, we can get cheap shoes that look good and are super comfortable. The pair we choose should be supportive; if we want some additional support, we can buy supportive insoles. Also, once it becomes hard to bend over, we can make our life easier by wearing slip-ons.

Maternity Shoes

We recommend avoiding high heels during pregnancy. Apart from being uncomfortable and painful, they could lead to a potential slip and fall.

Dressing in Style

Stay true to your personal style.

We want to feel comfortable while we’re pregnant, and that means feeling good in the clothes we are wearing. So, when we go shopping for maternity clothes, we should buy items that show off our personal style and go with the things that we already have in our wardrobe. We don’t have to change our style just because we are pregnant.

Also, there’s no need to dress in black or other dark colors in order to appear smaller. Our wardrobe should mirror this joyous time in our life – we shouldn’t be afraid to choose colors and prints that make us glow.

Dressing Fashionably While Pregnant 1

Wear prints and patterns.

The days when maternity clothes were meant to camouflage our pregnant figure are long gone. Truth be told, we’re glad that’s the case! If we love wearing patterns and prints, we could pair them up with leggings or maternity pants and keep looking amazing throughout our pregnancy. However, if we normally wear solid colors, we should stick to that.

Choose wrap dresses and wrap tops.

Wrap dresses and tops accentuate our figure, whether we are pregnant or not. Moreover, a wrap top will make us look feminine and stylish throughout our pregnancy. If we like being bold and fun, we can try wearing a wrap top in prints or fun colors.

Make the most of empire waists.

Dresses with empire waists are always a good choice, as they don’t leave us looking shapeless. In fact, they give us shape and emphasize our cleavage at the same time. What’s more, we might be able to keep wearing our empire waist dresses after our baby is born.

Wear form-fitting dresses.

To show off our new figure, we can select a dress that hugs us at all the right places. When choosing a form-fitting dress, it’s best to select dark colors. A black cotton dress that accentuates our curves and a few simple accessories will make us look fantastic.

Show off your cleavage.

Pregnancy is the perfect time to show off our bust by wearing V-neck sweaters and low-cut shirts. Those will present our figure in the best light and make us look attractive. However, if we prefer to dress modestly, we don’t have to do this, of course.

Add some fun with accessories.

Chunky bracelets and necklaces or a giant bag (that can be used as a trendy diaper bag too) can make quite a fashion statement. Also, a cool scarf with a print or in a vibrant color will make our outfit pop! The best thing is that we can keep wearing these things after pregnancy too.

Resisting the Heat

Wear breathable materials.

As we might become overheated due to increased blood flow in our body while we’re pregnant, especially towards the end of our pregnancy, we could feel hotter than we normally do. So, it’s advisable that we wear cool clothes and layer them with trendy jackets or sweaters.

Regardless of our outfit, the materials we wear need to be breathable so that we don’t get too hot. Breathable clothes will minimize sweating and in turn, prevent a heat rash from forming on our skin. It’s best that we choose materials such as linen, cotton, and wool.

Wear capri pants, shorts, and short-sleeved tops.

We can wear shorts in solid colors or capris in fun colors such as green, pink, or blue. If we prefer neutrals, gray, beige, white, and black are always a smart choice. To match the capri pants, we can wear short-sleeved shirts with an empire waist and a fun pattern or print. Before buying capris or shorts, we should make sure that they are stretchy enough and that they come with a maternity waist.

Pregnancy Pants

Wear maxi dresses.

Maxi dresses are great because we can wear them anywhere and look feminine at all times. The flowing cut of maxi dresses is comfortable and trendy; furthermore, it will help keep us cool. Also, they come in so many colors, prints, and patterns that we will surely be able to find something that we love.

Opt for stretchy skirts that hug your curves.

If we decide to buy a stretchy skirt, it’s best to choose a basic color that will be easy to mix and match with multiple tops. Also, our skirt should be professional enough so that we can wear it to work with a blazer. Knee-length pencil skirts will keep us comfortable and make us look professional at the same time. If we feel like short skirts better than knee-length ones, we can opt for that too – shorter skirts will prevent us from getting too hot as well.
