Now that my bump is starting to grow bigger, my clothing is getting a little tight and so it's time to start thinking about maternity clothing. Normal clothes now press on my stomach and make me feel uncomfortable so I have been trying to find the best clothing for myself, to my style and in my price bracket.
I'm not one to spend a fortune on maternity wear. I mean, what's the point as you're only wearing it for a few months and then it's not needed any more, so I don't see the point in spending more than what is needed. I love clothes shopping in supermarkets and George has a lovely range of maternity clothes that are not only stylish but are affordable too.
A good bra is a must in pregnancy. I find that under-wired ones push on me and the bump (yes your bump will really push that high) and so I find the sports type bras are comfier and extra supportive too.
Since the weather is nice at the moment, I would only really buy one pair of maternity jeans as I much prefer wearing dresses, but these would just be in case it gets cold when the Autumn and winter hits. Maternity jeans are perfect for wearing whilst you're feeling uncomfortable because instead of having a zip or buttoned fastening, they have a stretchy waist which covers the hole of your bump. No more waist band digging in.
There are a plethora of tops to choose from. I find that if you pick quite a few tops and ten just a couple of bottoms, you can mix and match to make different outfit combinations. Most maternity tops are flared rather than hugging the bump so can even be work after pregnancy to hide your tummy afterwards.
I do love the huge range of maternity wear available at the moment, giving you style and comfort and showing off your lovely bump. I can't wait to start my collection.
