One of the most exciting changes that always leaves you in awe when you’re pregnant is watching your baby bump expand with every week that passes. In this article, we’re sharing tips on which maternity clothes to shop and how to dress your baby bump!
Pregnancy brings the joy of a new life into the world, but it’s as much about your journey as a mum too! If you’re a first-time mum, you might be wondering how to cope with the many changes happening to your life, including the challenge of embracing maternity clothes.
From not knowing where to shop maternity clothes to being scared of departing your usual stylish self, pregnancy can be quite the challenge. And it’s especially true for first-time mums! So how do you embark on this new fashion challenge for moms? We’ve rounded up some basic maternity wear style tips to help you ace your pregnancy style.
1. Invest In Maternity Clothes That Can Grow With You
You’ll only be pregnant for less than a year. When you shop for maternity wear, try to go for pieces that you can use throughout your pregnancy or even beyond. Many pregnancy clothes are versatile enough to be used postpartum like our Mama’s Choice Breathable Peplum top which features nursing access.
2. Stock Up On The Basics
When you’re trying to build your maternity wear wardrobe, the most important clothing items to purchase are the basics. These include a reliable pair of maternity leggings, tops and easy-to-wear dresses. With these in your closet, you can easily pair them with your regular clothing. For instance, you can stylishly wear our Mama’s Choice Activewear Maternity Leggings with an oversized top or a tunic. Even better, it’s easy to dress up or down!
3. Pair Loose Tops with Tight Pants or Leggings
Feeling hot is one of the many symptoms of pregnancy, so we recommend shopping for maternity clothes that are loose and flowing, and arrive in breathable fabrics like our Mama’s Choice Low Turtleneck top. While loose tops are a tried-and-tested maternity staple, avoid pairing it with loose pants. Did you know that it tends to make you look bigger than you actually are? Instead, slip into a pair of leggings or tight-fitting jeans.
4. Accentuate Your Bump
Every once in a while, change up your pregnancy style! The easiest way to do this is to highlight your beautiful baby bump with a belt worn over a dress. You can also shop maternity clothes in Singapore that come with a tie waist like our Mama’s Choice Long Flounce Dress. Such designs are also great go-to options if you need to glam up for an event.
5. Go For Versatile Button-down Tops
Incredibly versatile, button-down tops like our Mama’s Choice Maternity Casual Hem top can easily be worn throughout each pregnancy trimester. When your belly isn’t showing yet, you can wear it buttoned up. Once you start showing, leave it unbuttoned over a tank top to serve as cute outerwear. Get the most use from it by choosing neutral colours too. This way, pairing it with other colours won’t be a chore!
More tips for effortless maternity clothes style:
- Browse your closet for clothing items that you can still wear during pregnancy such as maxi dresses, skirts with elastic waists and oversized tops.
- Don’t forget to shop for comfortable shoes, too.
- Stretchy dresses and tank tops are lifesavers.
- If you want to buy non-maternity clothes, go up a size or two.
- Most importantly, wear clothes that make you feel good!
