Women go through many stages during pregnancy, and one of the most common is the “what the heck do I wear?” stage. Some people LOVE styling their bump, others dread it because they can’t figure out how to get clothes to fit right and feel comfortable. Me personally? I was a bit of both. I loved showing of of my bump but found it difficult to find clothes that fit well, partly because at 5’11 I’m quite tall.
Regardless of your height, weight or shape, there are a few Maternity Fashion Essentials that will help you conquer the maternity wardrobe and help you feel comfortable & stylish. Consider these your go-to items and then mix & match with other great finds for the perfect maternity wardrobe.
As tempting as it is to wear flip flops everyday, wearing proper footwear helps cut down on some of aches and pains associated with carrying pregnancy weight around (and helps with balance!). Plus it is important to get enough exercise in daily. Sneakers are great then, but the last thing you want to do when you are 9 months pregnant is reach down and tie your shoes. Get a good pair of slip on sneakers that will go with anything, and never bend down to tie your shoe again!
With these 7 pieces, you will be on the right track for creating comfortable and stylish maternity outfits.
Have fun pairing some of your regular clothing with them too, as you will be surprised how much of your closet still fits during pregnancy!
