1. Pregnancy Jeans
Ditch your yoga pants. Invest in good pregnancy jeans or pants. You can check out cotton poly spandex maternity jeans with bands that offer more support and coverage than regular low-rise maternity jeans. You can start wearing these jeans as soon as your non-maternity jeans start to feel snug. They look classy and can be paired with any kind of top or tunics.
2. Stretchy Leggings
One of the pregnancy clothing staples is a pair of cool leggings. They make your legs look shapely and also add to your apparent height. During the second trimester, you can easily still wear all your regular leggings, but as your tummy gets bigger you might want to start looking into maternity leggings or jeggings that will offer you some extra comfort and support. You can team leggings with a long shirt, tunic, cardigan, or a button-down shirt.
Maternity tunics lovingly embrace your belly as well as your love handles. They tend to stretch as your waistline increases. Bella Mama has a lovely range of maternity kurtas and tunics that are a perfect option during pregnancy as they can be worn throughout this period. The simple yet beautiful designs make the kurta timeless and it can work post-pregnancy as well! And that’s not all! The zipper at the front provides easy nursing access postpartum.
4. Wrap Tees
Wrap tees or cross-over tops are tied right below your bust. They give you structure and take the attention away from your baby bump. Wrap shirts can be adjusted according to your size.
5. Tee Shirts
Comfortable maternity tees are ideal for pregnancy due to their high comfort factor. Pick V-necks and deep round necks instead of high necks. Hiding your neck can make you look heavier.
6. Maxi Dress
An empire-waist maxi dress drapes perfectly well over your growing bump. It is a good investment as you can wear it throughout your pregnancy. Flowy maxi dresses can be your best bet during pregnancy, especially during your second trimester. Comfort is important as you reach the end, and loose, flowy silhouettes are needed the most. Pick a dress that doesn’t cling to your body but is instead smooth and flowing.
Skirts that end just above the knees make you look taller. They come with an elastic band that provides additional support that your belly requires during this time. They offer you both freedom and femininity.
A good pair of stockings will disguise your swollen feet and varicose veins. You can wear stockings with dresses or tunics. They are also a great way to add zing to your clothes. While you’re at it, remember to pick loose and comfortable clothes as tightly-fitted clothes during pregnancy can cause heartburn, backache, sleeplessness and also restrict the growth of the fetus. With these super cool pregnancy clothes, get ready to show off your baby bump in style!
