Whether it be where to shop for stylish maternity clothes or ideas on how to style my existing pieces, I have a special treat for you with 3 lovely ladies sharing their tips on how to feel stylish but comfy with your bump with! Plus some bonus fitness tips at the end! 🙂
2) What are some of your favourite online stores for stylish bump wear? Asos is brilliant and has lots of options for growing tummies. I would also check out Cotton On / Supre for stretched tights/leggings/singlets and kimonos. Also see Rock Your Bump for really cute pieces (great skirts & stretch pieces). Check out Country Road / Witchery / French Connection for elasticated waisted patterned pants you can wear to work with a plain white maternity shirt.
Thank you to Jacqui From The urban Ma blog for inviting me to share my style tips for pregnant mamas .Thank goodness maternity wear has progressed over time and there are some beautiful choices out there.Some Important information to remember is , Your body temperature will fluctuate throughout your pregnancy , comfort is important and special occasion maternity wear such as evening wear and wedding outfits are often best to be borrowed unless you will be wearing them more than twice.
1) What is a must-have item of clothing for pregnant mamas?
One great must have piece to add to your wardrobe is a tshirt dress , which can be layered for both casual and work. Add a pair of maternity leggings and a cardigan, jacket or shirt with some accessories and you will have a variety of different outfits that will suit all weather. I wore the dress pictured above throughout my last pregnancy . Available from Target Australia for $30
Stay Active! It doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym everyday and take a Body Pump class, just get out and do something active at least 3 times a week, a nice walk around the local parks or purchase a pregnancy fitness DVD and enjoy some time learning something that maybe new, who knows all those back pains may ease up through exercise.
