How can I find clothes that are comfortable, fit my growing body and still look good?







Those bulging bellies are increasingly seen as beautiful and natural, not something to be hidden. Go for clothes that celebrate your curves, rather than masses of draping fabric to veil your tummy. Empire waists are great for showing off shoulders and growing breasts while giving baby room to grow. V-necks look good on almost everyone, and bring attention to the face. Open collars will accentuate your collarbone and make your neck look long and graceful. Clingy clothes also look cleaner and neater,and will make it clear that you’re pregnant, not just extraordinarily large. And, don’t forget the basic rules -- dark clothes are slimming, look good on everyone, and match with anything.
Thanks to crazy hormones,pregnant women tend to get kind of hot. (You’ve noticed?) Stay cool in breathable fabrics like cotton, viscose and matte jersey. Dress in layers so you can strip (appropriately) as the day goes on and your temperature rises. Also stay away from any scratchy fabrics -- pregnant bellies are already itchy enough.

Most maternity clothes come in small, medium and large. The sizing is basically the same as non-pregnancy clothes, with extra room in the belly, boobs, hips and arm holes. Buy your regular size, but don’t get too much at once -- your growth might expand to other areas.

Thanks for the info, hopefully, I'll be needing them very soon! Just can't seem to wait all of a sudden, hopefully I won't take the intimacy and fun out of it all!

Lady A said...

Wow! Baby?! Soon?! This is such an exciting time for you guys! I was I could do it over! The excitement of it all is priceless. Funny you mentioned something about intimacy during this stage, because that is going to be the next topic. What confirmation for me, lol, thanks.

Lol... not yet preggers, but want to be like right now! : ) Just have this urge to want kids and start a family. I'm hoping I'll be able to balance starting a new job and being preg, but for now, I'm just wanting a baby! It might be because I'm over searching for a job, and just want to start a family as that is what I've always wanted, although I really wanted to get a job first. I haven't even started the job, just got the offer and already wanting to start trying for a baby.

Lol! Whatever happens first. This will be a fun time. I loved it my pregnancies. I hope your hubby will spoil and baby you, lol. Nothing wrong with putting extra money to the side for the nursey, etc...
