Simple Style Picks For During & After Pregnancy
It was a rude awakening – after trying on my seventh shirt one morning – when I realized my closet was nowhere near “bump-friendly.” My beloved white tee’s had started to creep up, and the thought of slipping in to jeans was definitely out of the question. For the sake of both my appearance and my sanity, I decided it was time for a clothing haul. One that would include simple styles to wear not only during but after pregnancy as well.. (Because who really wants to buy stacks of maternity clothes on top of baby gear?!)
So far, the best trick I’ve learned for styling a growing bump is to break ALL of the rules. Forget the maternity pieces (except jeans), and go for items you already know to be flattering. Keep it simple with mix and match styles (that stretch) and getting dressed will become a lot more exciting.
For me, this has included a few simple picks such as oversize sweaters, mid-length dresses, and classic button-down’s. All of these have worked so well with my baby bump, and are the exact pieces I will wear postpartum as well. However I’m a bit worried about the shoes (my feet have grown 1/2 a size already!) I’ve heard they can either stay the same or go back to normal post-baby. I’m crossing my fingers they go back…
