Just can’t get that zipper all the way up anymore? Don’t worry, this is normal! That baby bump is finally making it known and making it a bit difficult to find stuff in your closet that still fits comfortably!
Going shopping for a maternity wardrobe doesn’t mean you have to drain the bank account. If you’re not lucky enough to have friends and family who can lend you maternity clothes, then there is a way to look good, be comfortable and in style. Remember, with most items, you’re only going to wear them a few months before the baby’s born and just a short period of time after you give birth. The trick is to buy some basics that can be mixed and matched for different looks. If you need something nice for special occasions, then invest in a nice pair of slacks, blouse, skirt or multi-piece dress.
A little smart shopping can go a long way when it comes to maternity clothes. Remember, with basic colors and designs, you can change things up with accessories! Stick to solid colors for your pants and skirts and then add printed tops that will coordinate with each of your bottom pieces. When you shop, don’t go too much larger than your normal size. Most maternity clothing size parallels with non-maternity sizes. In other words, if you’re a large in your regular clothes, unless you’re carrying twins or gain a great deal of weight, you’ll most likely be a large in maternity clothing as well. The point is to find something that feels comfortable and that you feel good about wearing.
