Must Have Maternity Pieces

Posted by Catherine Daly on

 The key to looking stylish for any occasion during your pregnancy?

Maternity Tank Tops

Cotton maternity tanks with a touch of Lycra or Spandex like these from Tete et Tete ranges have extra fabric in the belly that expands with you while keeping your curves comfortably contained. Plus, showing a little skin can keep you cool when your inner furnace kicks in. Go for hip length, which not only is more flattering but allows a pop of color to peak out beneath top layers, adding visual interest.

Maternity Tunic

While fitted across the shoulders and arms, a maternity tunic  provides plenty of room where pregnant women need it – across the middle, to accommodate a growing belly, and in the length, to cover your expanding hips and bottom. Choose one with detailing around the neckline or in a fun pattern with a punch of color. A V-neck or boat neck shows just a touch of skin and elongates your neck.

Maternity Leggings

A pair of stretchy black leggings like these from 9 Fashion or Tete et Tete keeps you comfy and stylish year-round. Pair them with knee-high boots when it's cold, or ballet flats or sandals when it's warmer. While you can get away with non-maternity leggings, pushing the waistband beneath your bump, maternity leggings have a more forgiving belly band that grows with you.

Boot Cut Trousers

Choose pants made from a material that contains a bit of Lycra like these from Funmum, so they'll hug your curves and move with you. Make sure that the cuff falls just an inch or two from the floor to create a long, lean line from waist to toe. Any shorter can make your legs look stumpy; any longer can look sloppy and widening. 

Maternity Jeans

Invest in a pair of maternity jeans in a dark, slimming wash and a universally flattering boot cut Tete et Tete . The pregnancy version of this wardrobe basic has extra room in the rear and hips and a supportive stretchy panel around the waist. You can choose styles that fit over or under your belly. Try on several to see which works best for you. 

Hope some of these tips help throughout your Pregnancy
