Feeling beautiful and confident is important at any stage of one’s life, and being pregnant is no exception. Whether you are in your first trimester or ready to give birth, or whether you have gained twenty pounds or fifty, dressing in a way that makes you feel beautiful is very important.
Choosing clothes that flatter your figure, no matter what size or shape you are, will give you confidence and allow you to appreciate your body. Maternity fashion has evolved incredibly over the years, from women wearing their husbands’ oversized t-shirts to cute, figure flattering dresses that celebrate your baby bump.
As spring approaches and the weather warms up, there are several maternity fashion staples to consider adding to your wardrobe that will flatter your shape and make you feel even more beautiful.
Long tank tops are an important staple in every pregnant woman’s wardrobe. Wide straps, a gentle scoop neck, and long enough in the front to comfortably cover your belly, tank tops are flattering and comfortable. The Maternal America Maternity tank is a great all purpose tank for layering or wearing as is in warmer weather.
This long maternity tank stretches easily over your changing shape so as not to constrict you or make you feel uncomfortable. Incredibly versatile, tank tops can be worn with a variety of outfits and for many different occasions. Paired with jeans or shorts, they are a great choice for casual day to day wear.
For a night out, pairing a tank with a cute jacket and heels creates a stylish and dressed up look. A tank is also great for layering, whether under a sweater or a thin long-sleeve shirt, as it creates extra length to cover your baby bump.
When you first start to show in the beginning months of your pregnancy, your regular jeans start to be too snug but maternity jeans are still too big. It is during this time that the outfit-saving BellaBand comes into play. When your pre-pregnancy jeans become too tight to button, simply leave them unbuttoned and slip the soft and stretchy BellaBand over the waist.
This creates a smooth and comfortable waistband that allows you to get extra wear out of your favorite jeans. In the middle of your pregnancy use the BellaBand to hold up maternity jeans or shorts that are still too loose. At the end of your pregnancy the BellaBand is perfect for adding extra support to your maternity jeans when your growing belly starts to push them down.
After you give birth the BellaBand also helps you transfer back into your pre-pregnancy clothing in much the same way as when you were first pregnant. It also allows you a few weeks postpartum of wearing your now loose maternity pants by comfortably holding up the waistband. A staple to your wardrobe, the BellaBand will keep you looking great and feeling comfortable.
A few great pairs of maternity leggings are a great addition to your spring maternity clothes wardrobe. Incredibly comfortable, leggings stretch and do not squeeze you, keeping you comfortable all day long. Very trendy this season, they look cute paired with a variety of choices.
A great flowing blouse is stylish and creates a balanced look. When worn underneath a gorgeous sundress the leggings add a finished look to the outfit. Whether paired with flats, sandals, or heels, leggings can easily be dressed up or down. As spring approaches, consider adding a few pairs in different colors and lengths to your wardrobe as you will get many uses out of them.
A final staple for your spring wardrobe, no matter what stage of pregnancy you are in, is a beautiful empire waist sundress. A casual and cute dress is so versatile, as you can wear it from running errands to lunch dates to evenings out when paired with a cardigan or jacket.
The empire waist is a universally flattering look and perfect while expecting. Cinching directly underneath the bust, it accentuates the smallest part of your body and then flows beautifully over your baby bump. Coming in a variety of patterns, from dainty floral prints to vibrant solid colors, an empire waist sundress will leave you feeling and looking beautiful.
Overall, choosing clothing while pregnant that accentuates your favorite features and enhances your confidence is very important. As spring approaches, consider adding staples to your wardrobe that will make your pregnancy that much easier. From sundresses to the ever important BellaBand, you will be comfortable and stylish.
