OK, I know some of us had dreams that when we were pregnant, we would spend the whole 9 months reclining (gracefully!) on the sofa while someone brought us bowls of ice-cream and chocolate biscuits, and massaged our very slightly swollen but still elegant-looking feet. And of course we would put on exactly the recommended amount of weight, and our belly would be perfectly shaped and cute. Sigh…the reality can be just a little different.
Remember that staying active and healthy during pregnancy has many benefits
, and gentle exercise like pre-natal yoga
is perfect. It seems yoga is an all-time favourite with the celebs, and most keep going right through pregnancy. Both Nicole Kidman and Halle Berry
are reportedly including yoga in their pregnancy exercise routines. So what to wear? Your pre-pregnancy workout clothes may not fit for long, and you want to be comfortable, right? QueenBee has some great suggestions to help you look great while staying active.
Try our super soft and stretchy twist tank top
with flare leg cords
…you’ll love the comfy cotton knit foldover waist band. The tops come in two bright colours as well as black, and are also good with our funky grey stripe leggings
. And to wear over your tank top you can’t go past one of our super soft French Terry Hoodies
– it’s great for layering, comes in short or long sleeved versions, and a range of great pastel and dark colours. We love the French pink and baby green pastels, or you could go with the navy long-sleeved hoodie like Jessica Alba
. Another fave is our long sleeve mini dot sweater; comfortable, stylish, and looks as good over jeans as it does over leggings. See how it looks on US actress Brooke Burke
! This is a low v-neck, and our black tank top
goes well underneath.

Felicia: Week 16 - Making the Transition
When you find out you’re pregnant, you’ll probably reach for a pregnancy book like I did and in there they mention that wearing loose stretchy clothing will be most comfortable at the beginning before you might need to make the switch into maternity wear – it made it sound like I wouldn’t need maternity clothes for ages, until I was REALLY showing.
