Top Tips in Building Your Maternity Wardrobe•
Posted on December 08 2014
You’ve got the baby seat sorted and the stroller on lay-by, which all comes at a time when you start to notice your pants are getting that little bit tighter. Yep, it’s time to get yourself some maternity wear. A lot of mums-to-be struggle to dress the body they have been dressing for years once the belly starts to grow. Your body changes and so will the clothes you have to buy. The following will explain how you can build your maternity wardrobe without having to lose your confidence, style and comfort:
Maintain your look
Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean you have to resort to baggy overalls and sweatpants. It’s a lot easier these days to experiment with new maternity fashion available.
Don’t buy everything all at once
In the early stages of pregnancy, you can utilise some of the clothes you already have. Belly belts are praised by many mums-to-be and make a great addition to any maternity wardrobe. They are ideal for jeans and casual wear but can also be used to extend your work wardrobe of trousers and skirts.
Choose your basics
Keep your lifestyle in mind when investing in some good maternity wear basics to suit your everyday tasks. Get some basic maternity tops you can easily team up with jeans, pants and skirts. Maternity wrap blouses and dresses are also a good choice as you can wrap them to suit your growing and post-birth baby bump.
If you love to accessorise with bangles, necklaces and earrings, it’s a good idea to make the most of wearing them before the baby arrives and starts to yank at your favourite necklace. If you don’t want to stop, Mama’s Home has some colourfulstatement pieces available that are non-toxic and have a custom-designed clasp to separate easily when tugged.
Find your perfect maternity dress
You are bound to be invited to a special occasion during your pregnancy, so it’s a good idea to have the perfect maternity dress you can be comfortable in. An empire-waist dress with a hem falling below the knee and a neckline offering plenty of cleavage coverage will do the trick. If you think you’ll be attending several events, find your pregnancy version of your own LBD (little black dress) that you can dress up or dress down depending on the occasion. Don’t be afraid to spend a little more on this one if you are going to look and feel incredible for the occasion!
- Buy comfortable undergarments
Having comfortable undergarments during a pregnancy is essential to help shape and support your body. As mentioned earlier, belly belts will be your new best friend in the earlier stages of pregnancy. Consider buying some seamless maternity briefs and bras that are built for comfort and supporting your body to accommodate your changing belly and bust.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is to be comfortable but don’t be afraid to show off your new shape and experiment with new maternity wear fashion. Mama’s Home offers a beautiful selection of maternity wear which you can spend your pregnancy months living with style, comfort and confidence.
