Being pregnant can be the most exciting and yet the most tiring thing ever. And after the first trimester, your clothes will stop fitting you unless you wear really loose outfits.
Shopping for maternity clothes is not all about looking for clothes that are loose enough to fit you. There are some things you might want to consider while buying.
First off, remember that, as mentioned before, you won’t need maternity clothes until the beginning of your second trimester, unless you wear really tight clothes.
But you can never tell when there will be a sudden growth of the fetus and suddenly your pants and skirts won’t fit anymore. So to make sure this won’t happen, buy a couple of maternity pants and skirts beforehand and keep it ready!
For a more effective shopping of maternity clothes, visit shops that specifically sell maternity clothes and not a general mall. This gives you a wide range of clothes to select from compared to the one stacked in a mall.
You don’t have to go for the usual plain ones just because you want them to be comfortable. You can make it entirely stylish by going for floral prints and pastels etc. and add a tinge of your own style to give yourself and your maternity clothes a whole new makeover.
There are maternity clothes available that literally grows along with you, in size, of course. These are made of easily stretchable clothes that grow wider and bigger as your body grows with time.
This is very handy since you don’t have to go maternity shopping every once in 2 or 3 months and save a lot of money.
Try going for clothes made of lighter materials like cotton etc. This is due to the fact that generally pregnant women begin to feel hotter due to the dilation of blood vessels. Cotton clothes will make you feel more comfortable and less stuffy when you wear them.
If you want to make yourself look leaner and hide a little bit of that weight, you can try wearing clothes of the same color from top to bottom that gives a tall and lean appearance. Wearing dresses with vertical stripes can also make you look leaner and taller.
