During pregnancy you’re going to need several essential maternity clothes to take you through your each stage – first, second, third, and even that fourth trimester you may (or may not) have already heard about. We’ll keep you looking stylish and feeling comfortable During and Beyond the Bump.
We have broken down the 5 key maternity clothes below, and why these are a ‘must have’ in your wardrobe:
1. A Great Pair of Maternity Leggings
Quality black leggings will be your go-to maternity pants during pregnancy. Leggings can be worn with long t-shirts and converse trainers for a relaxed casual maternity look, while they also can be dressed up with a maternity shirt or blazer and ankle boots. Especially during the cooler months, maternity leggings are a must have item for comfort and style.
2. Basic Stretch Maternity Dresses
Maternity dresses come in all shapes and sizes, however most useful during pregnancy is a simple black stretch dress that can be worn with so many variations and shows off your beautiful growing bump.
Adding jewellery, heels a blazer or coat can dress up a simple black maternity dress, while wearing it with a pair of ballet flats or dressy sandals will take you through every day.
Various sleeve lengths will depend on the season you are expecting. (Singlet, t-shirt or full-length sleeve). Being able to layer with a basic maternity stretch dress will make it a guaranteed maternity wardrobe staple.
