What are preggy mums rocking these days? A new survey from Babeswithbabies.com has dished the dirt!
Jeans are IN and minis are OUT: over half of us rate a great pair of jeans the most important item in our maternity wardrobe, and less than 0.2 per cent would wear miniskirts with our pregnant bellies.
The likely reason being a statistic listing legs (followed by bum, skin, breasts and arms) as a pregnant woman’s least liked feature. In other words, we’re gonna cover ‘em, not flaunt ‘em.
Our favourite accessories during pregnancy are 1) a scarf 2) jewellery 3) shoes 4) handbags, and our biggest style occasions during pregnancy are 1) weddings 2) formal occasions 3) evenings out.
With my first baby, I found it pretty easy to style my bump – I didn’t start showing until around 4 months and I found confident dressing my neat little belly.
The second time though was more challenging; I started showing much earlier and went through a ‘is that a baby or just too much food belly?’ which was sort of difficult to dress (also because I was trying to hide my burgeoning bump for 12 weeks). After my bump started looking like a preggy belly and not a food belly, it was easier to dress.
I wore lots of tights and loose tops in the beginning and then I tightened things up on top as my bump grew. Although in the last couple of months I tended to cycle about five staple outfits and barely anything fit me anymore.
But it was all part of the fun.
