If you’ve finally succumbed to the fact that your pre-preggy clothes do not accommodate your bulging baby belly, and you’ve admitted that you’re going to have to buy some – yes! You can say it! – maternity wear, the first place you should look is Mytummy.co.uk.
The site has some really cute maternity tops (blouses, tees and tank tops) with funky designs, which can be mixed and matched with skirts, shorts, trousers – whatever you like.
My Tummy tops are all about bump adornment; waving babies, sleeping babies, butterflies, ladybugs, bumble-babies, football-babies, hand prints, hearts and storks are some of the images that say ‘check out my über-cool bump’.
All the tops are printed with organic prints and are also made from flexible materials that make them stretchy and thus able to accommodate a growing belly.
The only disadvantage is that the tops are designed especially for pregnancy; you might feel a little weird walking around with a motif bellowing ‘I’m pregnant’, when you’re not – unless, of course, you really want that seat on the tube! But you could wear the tops to gym or exercise class – or to schlop around the house in.
My Tummy also does a range of maternity wear (including dresses and trousers), as well as post-preggy nursing tops and bras. CLICK HERE to shop.
