Staying comfortable and warm during the cooler months
The cooler months during autumn and winter call for layers, layers and more layers! It is all about creating comfortable layers that look chic, but are still functional. Comfort is everything with a growing bump, you want to feel comfortable and stylish, whist maintaining a practical wardrobe that will take you from pregnancy through to postpartum.
Here at Queenbee, this is what we specialise in- we have gorgeous pieces that are designed to flatter a growing belly, yet still offer easy breastfeeding access.
For our latest blog post, we have gathered some stunning new arrivals to share with you some practical layering ideas for these days that keep getting colder…
Start with your base
Whether you are a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl, or prefer a dress, it is important to get your base layer right. Depending on the occasion and whether or not it is a day in the office or a lunch with the girls, we have plenty of options for you. Here are some of our favourite new arrivals…
This dress is great for casual and comfortable weekend wear. Just pair with sneakers for an ultra-sport chic look
A lovely, versatile dress- designed to be your base for adding your own unique stylish touches. You could dress it up, or down and even for work in the office, or play! With easy nursing access and plenty of room for your bump, we believe that this is a great staple for your wardrobe.
We think that this best-selling dress should be in every pregnant-mum-to-be’s wardrobe! This piece is versatile and easy to wear, simply put it on and add your sneakers, ankle boots and a jacket and you’re ready for anything- including growing a baby and breastfeeding.
Add some tights for those chilly days
These leggings are one of our best selling tights- under bump which is a comfortable style for most mums-to-be.
Leggings are a great layering piece to have, particularly because they are so comfortable and look great under dresses or with a nice top.
Again, another best-selling style but this pair goes up over your growing belly. We have plenty of leggings available to choose from in different styles, lengths and they also vary in the level of support they offer your belly.

This gorgeous striped tee shirt is bump and nursing friendly and is a great base layer for you to build your casual outfit from during pregnancy or postpartum.
Pair the Hendix Tee with these comfortable harems that look super cute with sneakers and make a cute (and ultra comfy) on-trend day look.
A great all-rounder in classic stripes. Update your wardrobe with this trending colour- blush. The Chase Tee is a great piece to layer during winter, with easy nursing access.
Layer your Chase Tee, or any other top as a matter of fact with the versatile Under Bump Jeggings from Esprit. This jeggings are a great piece to introduce into your wardrobe as they offer comfort and they will go with everything!
Another great base layer- the Tommy Sweater adds functionality to your base layer, with a crossover design and easy nursing access.
The Underbump Jeggings in grey are a casual look and they go really well with neutral tones, as well as white and black. A perfect match with the Tommy Relaxed Nursing Sweater- just add chic sneakers, ballet flats or ankle boots.
Add an additional layer for warmth
A fine knit jumper or sweater is a great idea for an additional level of warmth and comfort during cold days and chilly nights.
Gorgeous and light, this nursing jumper provides a comfortable layer of lightweight cotton knit and easy nursing access. It’s the perfect layering piece!
This relaxed, casual jumper is a cotton blend and perfect with jeans on a chilly day.
This is sporty chic at its finest! Layer this gorgeous blush, navy and white sweater over a bump-hugging dress, your favourite harem pants or tights.
It’s true; you can never go wrong with stripes! This classic print will have you feeling stylish and ready to go. It is easy to layer this knit over a dress, wear with jeans or harem pants and you have yourself a trendy go-to outfit.
Add a nursing cover that is also great for warmth
We can’t recommend a nursing scarf enough- it has so many uses. From warm scarf to a wrap, this piece converts into a breastfeeding cover at any time you need it- great for when you are out and about.
Great with jeans, a scarf like this one is super versatile and will be cosy for your growing bump, or snuggle up for feeds in comfort and privacy if you wish.
Time to finish it off- add a jacket!
We love this knee-length cardigan for layering- you can dress it up or down. Wear it over a dress with tights, or jeans or pants. Let it take you to the office or out on weekends.
Another long cardigan, but only because we love them! The Hazel cardi is another versatile piece and super warm and cuddly.
Want to give your outfit an edge? Look no further than the bomber jacket. Perfect to layer over a tee-shirt and knit, this piece will elevate your look and keep you warm.
Have fun with your wardrobe and stay warm!
