Gone are the days when the only maternity dress option you had was a Moo-Moo. These days designers are ahead of your curve when it comes to maternity fashion. Below are our tips for looking stylish throughout your entire pregnancy. PLUS:A look at our favorite summer maternity dresses!
Splurge on the Basics
This tip applies to women who aren’t pregnant as well! When you outgrow your favorite pre-pregancy wardrobe staples, you should invest in a pair of great maternity jeans, several quality tees, a comfy wrap dress that can go from casual to dressy, a work pants/blazer combo, and a maternity bra.
Skimp on the Trends
See a funky maternity shirt you just gotta have? Look for similar styles from bargain stores such as The Gap and Old Navy so you don’t break the bank. If you do wear it again during your next pregnancy, it might be out of style!
Big Isn’t Better
Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to drown in your clothes! Look for fabrics and cuts that gently hug your belly and other curves. Show off that sexy mama body!
Go for Comfortable Fabrics
Being pregnant can make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin—the fabric you actually wear on it shouldn’t! Look for comfortable fabrics, such as cotton and jersey, that are breathable AND stylish.
