There is really no reason to choose clothes[Maternity clothes] that make you resemble a tent during pregnancy. Gone are the days that pregnancy was a ‘condition’ that women were at pains to disguise; it is now a celebration of life, a state that women rejoice proudly in!
And there is no reason that your wardrobe during this time cannot reflect how beautiful you are!
While there is no need to go overboard and buy a whole new wardrobe or clothes (remember a pregnancy is only nine months) you can invest in a few stylish and versatile tops during pregnancy, which can be teamed with pants, skirts and shorts. Keep the following in mind:
- A high waisted top is a good idea. The waistband should sit just below the breasts so that it does not run across the belly causing discomfort.
- The top should be long enough. If you buy something mid pregnancy, remember yout belly is about to get a lot bigger, so don’t buy something that you won’t be able to wear after a few weeks or which doesn’t fully cover your belly, or makes you feel self conscious.
- A top that buttons down the front may be a good idea, it will be useful for breast feeding when the baby arrives.
So go ahead and indulge yourself, get yourself a few nice things to make you look and feel great during this special time!
