Whether it’s Grecian Goddess or Profesh Mom-On-The-Go, we’re sure you’ve been thinking of your maternity wardrobe the minute (well, maybe not just that minute!) you heard you’re pregnant. So many options, so many looks, so little time!
Whilst you’re enjoying being the centre of everyone’s attention, your pregnancy clothes need a special mention. Not only do they have to be chic (a far cry from baggy maternity wear of yore!) but also supremely comfortable to allow you that mad noon to moon life. We know you’re going to ace that hustle!
To make your choices a bit easier, we’ve charted out your must-have maternity clothes for each semester. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and get a foot massage (or two!).
The First Trimester
Congratulations on the news! At this point of time, we can imagine you being completely overwhelmed - and rightly so. Pregnancy is a big step and there’s something magical about slowing down and enjoying every moment.
As your body is not showing a lot of change, you might be right in thinking that your current pre-pregnancy wardrobe should be good enough. Most of the times, yes. But, at the same time, there are a lot more factors you need to think about - soft breathable fabrics instead of polyesters, elastic waistbands as compared to well-fitted bands…
An incomparable piece that you must invest in right from the start is the Belly Band. Essential to maintaining your posture, the band is a 4 way stretch band that can be paired everything from dresses and skirts to tailored trousers and pants. Though it fits best from the second trimester onwards, it’s best to get used to it in advance so it’ll fit like a glove when your bump is growing!
The Second Trimester
Perhaps the most intense period of your pregnancy, the second trimester is all about balancing, life, work and baby. Whether you’re rushing from the doctor’s to a meeting, comfort is key and you need to look for something that’s going to support you through the day.
For working moms, you need to look smart yet at ease. A shirt dress enables that ease of movement, yet looks smart as a maternity shirt. We highly recommend the Alexi Shirt Maternity Dress!
Crafted from 100% cotton, the professional checks look pleasing to the eye whilst the belt adjusts for that pregnancy bump.
The Third Trimester
It’s Go Time! While you’re counting down to when the baby arrives, we know you’ve got a ton of things on your mind - getting the house ready, winding up for that maternity leave, final doctor’s checks… Sometimes a simple and minimal shirt & tights combination is just what’s needed when you’re out on errands!
The Speakeasy top is almost deceptive in its styling - it doesn’t look like a maternity top at all! On trend drop sleeves, oversized silhouette...ticks all the boxes for us. But it’s best for its button-down styling - perfect for when you need to convert this into a nursing top! At this stage, it’s best to go for transitional clothing from pregnancy to post-partum style.
