As any expectant mother would know, along with pregnancy comes a range of pregnancy fears. You know, the ones about morning sickness, eating and drinking the wrong thing (and harming your babies health), not knowing when you’ll go into labour, not losing the baby weight and most of all…having to look like a grouch in high stretch, extra large ponchos. By jumping onto any parenting website or with a quick chat with your doctor, you’ll find that most of these fears are common and without reason to be fearful. But what about those ponchos? Well, fear not! Let’s take a look at some of the most essential and best maternity wear and pregnancy clothes ideas available right now.
As a general rule the maternity wear essentials are as follows: two tops, a pair of jeans, a nice pair of pants, a versatile skirt and a fancy dress. You’ll find that fashion oriented maternity wear tends to accentuate your new curves in wonderful ways, so don’t be afraid to show off that baby bump!
Dresses and skirts – when looking for and buying maternity dresses and skirts, choose colours that are more neutral in colour (beige, ivory, taupe, black, grey and white), this makes the piece more versatile while allowing for accessories to take the piece from day wear to night gown.
Jeans and pants – as with dresses and skirts, pants should be neutral in colour. As for jeans – go with what best fits you.
Tops – choose colours that complement your skin tone (as with any other clothes). So for example if you’re a light tan look for autumn style colours such as olive, gold, beige, dark brown etc. If you’re a lighter pale look for colours with a cool undertone of pink and blue or blue and purple. – and so on.
Remember, just as you would any other day – work with your assets. If you’ve got long slender legs, show them off! If you’ve got sleek cut arms, then show them off! The beauty of many speciality pregnancy clothes and maternity wear is that they are usually designed to be extremely versatile. Dress them up or down and wear them around the house or to the formal event just around the corner.
