The challenges of remaining on trend, comfortable and not breaking the bank, are evident in any woman’s wardrobe. Multiply this by two for a pregnant woman looking for fashionable, affordable an versatile maternity wear. Hannah Grace has coined a few tips to keep you sane during your first trimester of pregnancy:
- Invest in a good belly band that can hide an open pants button ( whilst layering your clothing) and can also assist in pulling in a post partum belly.
- Over the belly leggings are a great investment as you can dress it up or down dependent on occasion. You will also use these leggings beyond maternity. Pair this with a blouson top if you are still concealing your pregnancy in the first trimester.
- A wrap dress is always a winner as it literally grows with your belly.
- A wrap top to pair with any work pants…same principle as the wrap dress.
For many the challenge remains to conceal a pregnancy during the early stages. The choice of clothing here is imperative to avoid anxiety. A blouson top can also go a long way to help you stay on top of fashion trends and to disguise a tiny baby belly.
Its important to remember that this stage in your life is transitional, and the only way to enjoy your changing body is to celebrate it!
