Yay! You are pregnant!!! Can you believe it? LOL. It probably still feels like a dream. Congratulations mama. A lot of things are going to change (for good) about you and your clothes are some of the most obvious changes, and no, maternity wears don’t have to be boring.
Before you think of shopping, it’s time to bring out all your clothes and pick out the Bump-Friendly Pieces. By this I mean, clothes that are comfortable and ‘easy’. When it comes to pregnancy, comfort reigns supreme. Below are 5 must-have fashion items every pregnant woman should have.
1. Maternity Jeans
Maternity jeans are way more comfortable than regular jeans. They fit exactly the same as regular styles but have the support to stay comfortable as your body grows because of the elastic waistline.
Leggings are stretchy, comfy and so versatile. You can dress up your short dresses and boyfriend tee shirts with leggings without putting any pressure on your stomach.
3. Maxi Wrap dresses and tops
TThese are quite comfortable to rock as they give the belly breathing space. They also come in very useful during breastfeeding as the wrap can easily be adjusted when you need to feed your baby.
4. Sporty Shoes
Keep your style pretty sleek and simply by swapping out your heels for a pair of sneakers or flat booties! If you must wear heels, make sure they are block heels to give your ankle enough support.
Get oversized button-ups in either the women’s or the men’s stores. Roll up the sleeves and let the loose material love on your belly. The added advantage is, as your bump grows bigger, you can simply wear a camisole underneath the button ups shirt and let down the buttons. It’s a win-win.
