Your Maternity Wardrobe: The Dos and Don’ts

Your Maternity Wardrobe: The Dos and Don’ts
During pregnancy, finding the right clothes can be a difficult task. You’ll probably want to achieve a balance of style and comfort in a range of outfits – for both daytime and evening-wear. Plus your changing body shape is likely to push your regular clothes out of the equation.
When the time comes to assemble your maternity wardrobe, there will probably be a lot of things to take into account. Here are some simple dos and don’ts to give you a helping hand.

Dos
Wear Maxi Dresses and Maxi Skirts
Throughout your pregnancy, maxi dresses and skirts are some of the most versatile items you’ll have in your wardrobe as their lose-fitting fabric makes them ideal for a changing body shape. Adding a couple of accessories will also transform the maxi dress from a comfy day-wear item to a glamorous evening piece.

Invest in a Maternity Support Band
Surely a staple for many Mums-to-be, the maternity support band is designed to take the strain away from your lower back. They are also designed to attach to your regular trousers – which means you could even wear them unbuttoned!

Wear Wrap Dresses
Wrap dresses are a wise choice as alike to the maxi dress, they are very versatile. A great item to wear to work, or simply at the weekend; they provide not only comfort but definition between your bust and your bump. This is especially helpful in the third trimester, as you get even bigger.

Don’ts
Wear your regular old t-shirts
Although tempting, your regular clothes are better left until you’re post-pregnancy. As you get bigger, your favourite t-shirts and tops will become too short at the front; revealing your elasticated maternity pants!

Wear a shapeless blouse or dress
Shapeless clothes do tend to be very comfortable, however they aren’t too flattering. A shapeless blouse will hang off your bump – making you appear big all-over. Whereas what you’re really looking for are clothes that will rather add definition to your curves.

Wear short dresses
An easy mistake to make – a short dress can look okay through the early stages of pregnancy. Though as your bump grows bigger, the dress will likely become too short; and you’ll be one gust of wind away from an embarrassing moment!
