Pregnancy can be a very exciting time for soon-to-be mommies. However, it also means that your body will be changing rapidly over the next nine months. The good news is that this means you get to go shopping and create brand new maternity wardrobe to get you through next nine months. When shopping for your new clothes, there are a few things you want to make sure about your pickup. Below is a look at seven clothing items that should be a part of every pregnant woman’s wardrobe.
1. Long Knit Shirts
Not only are long knits shirts very comfortable, they also look great whether in your first or third trimester. The length of the shirt allows it to flow naturally right over your baby bump. Long knit shirts can be worn with leggings, jeans or any other type of comfortable pants. Depending on the season, you will want to purchase several short or long-sleeved knit shirts, as part of your maternity wardrobe.
Leggings are one of the most important maternity clothes wardrobe staples. Since they are designed to stretch, these pants will remain comfortable throughout your pregnancy. These pants can be worn around the house, with a long knit top, or even under a dress for colder days. Darker coloured leggings, such as black, brown or navy, are the perfect addition to any maternity wardrobe.
3. Grow-with-you Jeans
These are the most practical types of jeans to purchase because they will last throughout your pregnancy. This type of maternity clothing will have either an expandable knit waistband, an adjustable waistband, or a waistband that closes under the belly. When purchasing jeans, the most important thing is to make sure you find jeans that are comfortable to wear.
Every pregnant woman needs to have at least one dress during her pregnancy. Not only are you likely to need a dress for several special events during your pregnancy, but maternity dresses are quite comfortable. There is a wide range of maternity wear dresses to select from, including summer dresses, tube dresses, singlet dresses, and maxi dresses. You can throw on a pretty maternity dress and a pair of sandals and be ready for any occasion.
5. Comfortable Shoes
Pregnancy can put a lot of extra pressure on your feet. This makes it extremely important to have at least one pair of comfortable shoes that you can wear on a regular basis. Shoes with good arch support and low heels are often the best options. Check out our Shoes category on the blog for lots of comfy picks!
No maternity wardrobe is complete with at least one cardigan that is easy to put on and off as necessary. The open front design will ensure that the cardigan can be worn throughout your pregnancy. Neutral colours, like black, white, brown, work best because they can be worn with almost anything. Check out Chadwick’s boyfriend cardigan and choose from over a dozen colors!
Too many women forget to purchase undergarment maternity clothes online, such as bras and underwear. However, it is important to realize that your belly is not the only part of your body that will be changing during your pregnancy. To remain comfortable throughout the next nine months, you must add new maternity bras and underwear to your wardrobe.
The most important thing is to find clothes that feel comfortable and match your style. Stores, like Maternity Revolution that specialise in maternity items are a great place to start shopping. They offer a wide range of clothes for maternity to match every style and every size. Best of all, they offer complete online shopping, so you can have everything delivered right to your front door.
