Holiday Shopping!

Posted by Catherine Daly on

Did you know that maternity dresses are purchased more during the holiday season than any other time of the year?

It’s a fact that as soon as the season turns cooler and the holiday season quickly approaches, the need for a maternity dress soon becomes evident. With Christmas and New Years all in a 45 day span, you will find yourself not only eating more, but having more parties and more photos taken of you than at any other time of the year. Choosing the right or best maternity dress can often be stressful as you have your body changing along with trying to find a dress that fits your “look.” When you buy a maternity dress or maternity top, you need to make sure that it is exactly what you want and something that is comfortable as well. Sizing is the key and most items in Bumps'n'Babies Maternity’s lines fit true to size based on your pre-pregnancy size, therefore you should be able to wear it full term and beyond. 

Are you in between sizes? The rule of thumb is to always order up if you are in between sizes or are carrying more than one baby. Lastly, the bust is almost always the area to focus on when buying a maternity dress or top. If your bust has gotten much bigger than expected, you may need to consider ordering up as well so the dress or top doesn’t feel too tight or binding. The V-necks are always a popular style of maternity dress, yet for those with bigger busts, you need to make sure you don’t get anything that may be too revealing or make you feel uncomfortable. Camis are often a viable solution if you are dead set on a certain maternity dress or top yet the bust is too wide of an area for your comfort zone.

Have fun and enjoy! You’ll cherish these moments and can see yourself glowing in all the beautiful holiday photos to come!
