Some women work while they’re pregnant, others begin maternal leave earlier. Some don’t work at all! But no matter what you’re doing while you’re pregnant ? even if it’s just sitting on the couch satisfying those hormonal cravings, you will get to the point when your clothes don’t fit and you need to go shopping. But how to dress? It’s not that easy, but here are some tips that can help:
1. The season: Layering clothing is always a good idea, because as your body temperature fluctuates of its own accord, there are external circumstances to take into account also. Wearing a v-neck, long sleeved shirts and then heavier shirt or sweaters on top is a great idea. If it’s summer, choose something breathable and light. Color is also nice during the summer, while during the winter it’s better to have darker shades.
2. Tricks: If you don’t want to splurge on in-between sizes, you can wear your old pants by looping a rubber band through the button hole and wrapping it around the button to get an extra two or three inches. Further on, before you look definitively pregnant, but after it looks like you’ve put on some weight, maternity clothes still might not fit. Elastic is your friend during this time. Stretchy yoga pants and skirts are great options. After the baby is born, wear these clothes while you’re getting back to your desired weight.
3. Borrow: Call friends, family, co-workers and whoever else you know that has recently experienced a baby to consider what is seated in their closets. Consignment shops also have good deals on nice maternity wear.
4. Support: You will probably want a new bra that will fit more comfortably. If you begin to feel moderate back pain from a huge stomach, it’s probably a good idea to wear womens body shapers. These can offer belly support that can ease tension on your back and neck.
5. Ft: Your ft can increase a half-size or more while you’re pregnant, so don’t feel bad about fitting into your old shoes. In fact, forgo them altogether ? especially the heels since your center of gravity will have shifted during these months. Wide fitting, arch supporting shoes with heels no higher than an inch are ideal.
6. Hair and Makeup: With a fuller face, you can try styles for fuller bodied women. These include a bob haircut, chunkier jewelry and bigger purses and accessories.
7. Sites: Everything from cocktail dresses to womens body shapers is available at www.doesmytummylookbiginthis.com, and www.mama-la-mode.com has the rest. If you don’t dig on maternity styles, bias-cut and empire-line dresses can work well.
8. Comfort: It is important to be as comfortable as you possibly can. If you decide to undergo for fashion, you may not expect the pain and anger you feel when your body fights back.
You may feel unsexy at times, but that’s just temporary. Remember that being a mother is enviable, even if you don’t always look your best. Pretty soon, you’ll have a little baby who you can dress up in the cutest ways.
