Cute maternity clothes aren’t hard to come by. You just need to know what to look for in terms of quality, price, and comfortability. Once you know how to shop with these things in mind, you’ll have no problem outfitting yourself adorably while you’re pregnant.
This guide will help you find the cutest maternity clothes money can buy.
Opt for clothing with a lot of stretch.
The clothing that you wear doesn’t necessarily need to be for pregnant women. It should, however, be stretchy. You want it to have a lot of give. That way, you’re not smashing your belly in clothing a size or two too small.
Good advice: Look for stretchy knits as well as other breathable fabrics such as brushed cotton, bamboo, Lycra, and spandex. They’ll help regulate your body temperature and make it easier for you to move around. If you want to work out, these are the fabrics to look for.
Dress however you feel comfortable.
If you’re used to dressing one way but feel limited by your protruding belly, don’t let that stop you from expressing yourself through color, pattern, and texture. There are many loose-fitting clothing and accessories that you can invest in that add cuteness to your wardrobe. Remember that style is head-to-toe, so don that funky hat, put on those dangly earrings, and drape that colorful scarf around your neck because you can.
Good advice: If you normally wear solids but want to make a statement, choose accessories in cool patterns. You’ll find a wide assortment of options available that let you freely express yourself without overdoing it. Think animal prints, florals, sparkles, and geometrics.
Make sure your stomach is supported.
Cute clothes that give your stomach the support that it needs are easy to find. Look for a belly band which can be found on maternity jeans, skirts, and pants with ample stretch. The elastic should give some but not so much that it stretches out and loses its firmness.
Good advice: If you can try things on, great! If not, give the belly band the ol’ stretch test before wearing new clothing. Tug on it from all directions to see how much give it has. If it’s too tight, it will constrict the blood flow to your baby.
Invest in good, supportive undergarments.
You can smooth things out considerably with the right bras and panties. Bellefit Maternity offers Prenatal Support garments that help you look and feel your best. Worn under your cute clothing, our Prenatal Cami and Support Panty are comfortable, breathable, and easy to launder.
Good advice: Select bras and camis made from cotton. Make sure that they help support your back and shoulders. You should not, however, feel constrained by the undergarments because you’ll feel uncomfortable quickly.
Just because you have a belly doesn’t mean you can’t dress cute. There are many maternity brands that are both comfortable and stylish. Thanks to Bellefit, you’ll have the prenatal support needed to rock out your new pregnancy clothing. You’ll be the cutest mommy-to-be in the neighborhood!
