Your baby bump is starting to peak through! Pregnancy is such an exciting experience to share with your loved ones and it’s so thrilling to welcome a new little one into the world. However, your clothing is beginning to become a little snug and too tight to fit into. The next question is: how do I find my style for my in-between stages? Maternity options could be tricky because when you’ve reached the middle stages of pregnancy, some options end up being too big or too small. It all depends where you shop. Here are some styles that help for those not sure what to wear during their in-between stages of pregnancy.
LEGGINGS! Perfect for lounge wear and lazy days. They’re simple and easy to style by dressing up or down – depending on your mood. Leggings are perfect for everybody, especially with a baby bump showing through. They stretch and mold perfectly to the shape of your body. They aren’t stiff like jeans but not too casual like yoga pants (although we do suggest yoga pants 100%). These are great for running errands and there is plenty of room to grow in them. There are smart leggings which look like work trousers, so basically leggings are a win-win.
2. Flowy Dresses
You need breathable clothing. Flowy dresses creates an illusion of hiding that baby bump while at the same time keeps you comfortable with room to breathe. These help you not look as pregnant as you really are. Dresses with either no waistbands or stretchy fabric helps you move freely when you’re on the go. They keep you and your little baby happy when you have no fabric squeezing your tummy. Flowy dresses come in all different types of styles and fabrics – such as cotton, linen, polyester, etc. – so you have so many options to choose from.
Kimonos are super bohemian and have been in-style for a while. Just like flowy dresses, these give you room to breathe without getting in the way of your daily tasks; and you look cute while doing them. Kimonos are aerated and can be wrapped around your midsection or hung off to the sides from a draped and loose fitted appeal. These are so easy to handle while you are pregnant because they are long enough to cover your belly and leaves you room to keep growing.
4. Non-Lined Bralettes
No one talks about this too much, and I think we should address it. Finding the right pregnancy apparel doesn’t have to do with just outerwear. Bras are the most difficult transition because when you’re reaching your second and third trimester, lined and wired bras become so uncomfortable. Bralettes or unlined bras are super great to alleviate the soreness and stiffness you would feel with lined or wired bras. They’re also super cute! Most are laced and dainty, so they are very delicate on the body. These are so much nicer to wear.
5. Or, show off that bump!
There are no wrong turns showing off that bump. We’re aiming for comfortability and if you don’t have any of the symptoms related to the clothing up above, then wear the look that makes you happy. Tightened dresses, secured skirts, and bathing suits will definitely accentuate the curvy baby belly. Be proud of being a new mama, it’s exciting and thrilling all at the same time!
