Expecting a child is a joyous and wonderful occasion in any woman’s life. Unfortunately, some women might not be completely pleased with their bodies during the pregnancy process and feel as if some of their current clothing is unflattering or doesn’t fit them as well as they had hoped. However, there are plenty of options when it comes to being both pregnant and stylish. Here are eight tips that will help make you a stylish pregnant woman while you are expecting.
Stay Skinny (Skinny Jeans that is)
With the popularity of skinny jeans, many clothing companies have put effort into making skinny jeans an option for expecting mothers. Just because you are expecting doesn’t mean that you can’t show off your legs and wear a pair of great looking skinny jeans. You may have to add some new pairs to your wardrobe, but most of them will be comfortable and have some give to them so you can stretch out during your pregnancy months.
Keep It Colorful
No matter the season, be sure to keep color in your pregnancy wardrobe. You should be happy during your time expecting, and your clothes will certainly represent and affect your mood. Bright colors in your clothing will not only look great, but they will boost your mood during a time where you may not be completely confident with your physical appearance.
No matter what outfit you decide to wear, you can spice it up by adding accessories. The great part about some accessories is that you can wear the same pieces you wore before you became pregnant, but with new maternity clothing. Be sure to include your necklaces, bracelets, earrings and other pieces when dressing up when expecting.
Embrace Your Changed Figure
There is something to be said about a woman who feels comfortable when she gains weight while pregnant. Pregnancy is nothing to be embarrassed about, nor is your body and the weight that you gain. With that in mind, embrace your figure and flaunt it. By no means does this mean lower your personal standards, but it is certainly okay to show a bit of cleavage. The changes in your breast may be among one of the changes that a pregnant woman actually enjoys, so it doesn’t hurt to show them off a bit.
Flaunt The Bump
Along with showing a bit of skin, also don’t be afraid to show off your baby bump as well. While you may feel a bit self-conscious about your weight gain, most people will love talking to you about your due date, the gender of the baby, if you have a name and much more. Babies are a great conversation starter and wearing clothing that embraces your baby bump is a great way of talking to people about your little bundle of joy.
Compression leggings, also known as maternity tights are both comfortable and stylish. They also help out quite a bit when it comes to keeping your weight shaped and in form. Compression leggings will keep your legs from getting tired or fatigued, while also allowing you to spruce up your wardrobe with certain outfits. A few pair of compression leggings are a must have for any expecting mother.
One thing that you will probably have to get rid of during pregnancy is your high heels. The truth is that walking around in high heels will be too much strain on your body as it gains extra weight while expecting. Pregnancy is a great time to pick up cute flats and flip flops that you can wear during pregnancy. Most women are always looking for a new reason to buy shoes, so pregnancy is the perfect excuse to do so.
The last tip to make this list involves comfortable tee shirts that you will be grateful to have during your time expecting. Now this doesn’t mean going out every day wearing a tee shirt. Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean that you can’t be sexy. But just because you want to be sexy, doesn’t mean that you can’t take a day off here and there that you can wear your favorite comfortable shirt as well. Before you go out to get groceries, be sure your favorite comfortable tee shirt looks great on you while pregnant.
Having the right wardrobe while pregnant will only add to the enjoyment of the months while expecting. And with the tips on this list, you can certainly stay stylish and comfortable!
