Finding Clothes that Fit During Pregnancy
Most expecting mums have the same complaint when it comes to their maternity fashion:
it’s hard to find clothes that are comfortable and that fit their
constantly changing bodies. It’s true that finding clothes that fit
perfectly can be very difficult during pregnancy, simply because you can
never tell what will fit you until you arrive at that size. Of course,
at that point, you won’t have any clothes to wear! To avoid this
conundrum and to prepare your wardrobe for your dynamic body, check out
the following tips for finding maternity clothes that fit.
Stick to maternity wear at first
your first trimester, your body won’t change too much, so don’t give
into the temptation to buy non-maternity clothes that are a couple sizes
larger that what you would normally wear. If you do this, then you will
be subjected to wearing baggy and ill-fitting clothes when it’s only
your belly that will be growing. Maternity wear is specifically tailored
with extra fabric and details that keep you comfortable, such as
stretchy belly panels or empire waist ties, which flatter your body as
Use your regular size
many women don’t realise is that maternity sizes are the same as
regular clothing sizes. That is, if you’re normally a size 10, then shop
for maternity clothes that are also a size 10. Manufacturers have
already factored in a growing belly into the sizes so that it takes all
the guesswork out of shopping for you. This system works best for the
first half of your pregnancy when your overall weight gain is minimal.
Don’t buy everything at once
to any woman who has been pregnant before and she will probably tell
you not to buy too many new items at once. Especially if you are
pregnant for the first time, chances are good that you won’t know
exactly what your body will do throughout the nine months. In addition
to not knowing how much extra weight you will gain and when, one day you
may decide you even want a different style to improve your comfort
level. Basically, a lot can change, so only buy a few things at a time
to ensure you have the best fit possible.
Use plenty of layers
you’re concerned about fit and comfort, your best option is to get
plenty of layers that you can work with as your body grows and changes.
For instance, a nice camisole underneath your flowy tops may be just the
thing you need to reign in any cleavage you’re not used to, and long
cardigans can be paired with just about any T-shirt and belt
combination, and will always fit no matter how big your belly gets.
maternity clothes isn’t rocket science -- it can be far more
complicated than that! Since your body will change in its own unique
way, it’s important to be smart about your purchases, and ensure you get
something comfortable that makes you feel good.
