Your Maternity Wardrobe Must-Haves:
Investing in an all-new maternity wardrobe doesn’t have to be a daunting experience nor does it mean you must alter your style completely.
Look for items that are versatile, tick all the right boxes for the spring and summer in UK maternity wear fashion trends, are created in a cool and no fuss fabric and, most importantly, are comfortable.
When you are an expectant mother the last thing you want to do is squeeze into a tight-fitting fabric that makes you hotter than you already are!
Great investments are pieces that have been designed to last you throughout your whole pregnancy. Such as items that come complete with an elastic waistband, one that will expand as you do. Such an item can also be worn after pregnancy, as the flexible waistband will also shrink back to your pre-baby body size.
Look for pieces that work to hide your bump but won’t have you looking frumpy or like you have just donned the baggiest and most unflattering tee invented. Instead opt for a maternity top that enhances all the good parts and loosely falls over your baby bump. A baby doll top is a great example of this; the top hugs your upper half, whilst falling loosely over your new baby bump. Such a top is a great investment as it is so flexible and can be worn with almost anything, including skirts, casual day shorts, skinny leggings and dressy capris.
The fabric of these tops flow freely over your skin and again stretches throughout your pregnancy, meaning you don’t have to invest in a new maternity top every time your bump decides to grow. It also means you will be able to don the same top long after the birth of your child. Choose a few block coloured pregnancy tops in this style, wear them to work, the park, a dinner date or alternatively a shopping trip.
