Wow, you just found out that you are expecting. A wonderful time is ahead of you and all that you can think of is how great it will be. It is an amazing time but in a while, you even come to the point when your normal jeans don’t fit aka 3 months on and you trying to adjust your wardrobe. Of course, you don’t want to spend a fortune on whole new maternity wardrobe, it doesn’t last that long, pregnancy is only for 9 months and 3 are already past. So let’s think about something more rewarding and lasting. Style your Non-Maternity clothes during the pregnancy.
How To Style Non-Maternity Clothes in Pregnancy
During my both pregnancies I bought the only opair of black maternity jeans. For me, it was a waste of money and pointless to clutter my wardrobe with items what is needed only for a few months. So I decided to go an extra mile with my everyday wardrobe. If you need to buy something go for a wrap dress, wrap top or nice loose A-line top. All of this works really well with the bump but even for a postpartum. Oh yes, ladies, there is still a bump even a few months after giving birth, so don’t trust beautiful images on Instagram with perfect abs just 4 weeks after. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. But great basics will definitely help and lasts that long days after even longer sleepless nights.
What Are The Basics Of Your Non-Maternity Uniform
Long vests – are a perfect layering piece of clothing, but you can wear them on its own in the summer. I found the tighter worked better for me, I felt it gives me some support on my back and holds the bump ( no it wasn’t falling off). If you don’t like to wear a long vest as part of your daily uniform go for a bigger size, afterwards you can wear it as a stylish loose fit.
Wrap dress – Same as with the tops. Look chic, and they grow with the bump, just getting shorter so make sure you get them at least in a knee length. Longer better. Wear them in the summer on its own and with the extra top in winter.
Cardigan/Sweater – if you like them you won it if don’t get a loose fit sweater. They stretch nicely and after wash, they get back to its normal shape.
Pants – as I mentioned before I bought one pair of jeans, but just because I don’t wear sweatpants and leggings. But some ladies can wear their normal jeans even during the pregnancy, they just closed them with the little pin or a hair band 😉
Skirts – wear stretched one or with a rubber band on the waist. I wore my skirt all the time during the pregnancy and a few years after as well. Get a black one will match all your tops.
Outerwear – if you not going to invest in a maternity coat, get an oversize one or just simply wear it unbuttoned with a long thick scarf.
Will you buy a brand new maternity closet for a few months or will you try to go a long-lasting way and stretch your daily uniform to the maximum? Let me know in the comments.
