Choosing stylish maternity and breast feeding clothes

Looking beautiful during pregnancy is easy. You will find yourself
with boosted -or discover completely new- voluptuous curves, and have a
healthy, happy glow. Thinking about your maternity and breast feeding
wardrobe and the image you project is the first step to looking, and
more importantly feeling, like a beautiful mummy.

Here are the top tips for a stylish maternity:

Size matters.

It
can be easier to move away from maternity lines and breast feeding
clothes and simply buy and borrow regular clothes in a bigger size. Many
pregnant women find themselves borrowing their partner’s clothes, or
buying clothes from the men’s sections. This is fine for comfortable
wear around the house. But constantly wearing bulky clothes which are
far too big will leave you looking and feeling much bigger than you are.

There
are so many stylish maternity lines available which will flatter your
shape. In cooler weather wear a fitted long-sleeved maternity top with a
loose scarf for a chic snug look.

Not only will the clothes
flatter your bump, but they are also designed with optimum levels of
comfort, with natural fabrics to avoid irritation and a comfortable cut.

Start with the basics.

Maternity
underwear will give you a neat silhouette to begin with. Look for
comfortable cotton fabrics and designs which give you the support.

Build
a basic capsule wardrobe. Some nursing tops are essential, as is a
cotton tunic to wear comfortably with leggings. In cooler weather you
might want to invest in some maternity knitwear too. Show off your new
voluptuous curves with V-neck or scoop-neck tops.

After pregnancy
you will want to invest in a changing bag. These don’t have to be padded
with bright cartoon characters. Modern designers such as Koochu are
creating stylish handbags which secretly double as changing bags. Check
out their beautiful patent handbags which contain a washable cotton
lining with useful hidden pockets; including a hidden base compartment
for a changing mat, nappies and wipes. These designers have thought of
everything, the bags even come with a thermo insulated bottle holding
compartment!

Don’t be afraid of glamour.

So many designers
are creating gorgeous more formal maternity dresses and skirts, meaning
you don’t have to sacrifice glamour just because you’re pregnant.
Feeling glamorous and stylish is a great way to feel beautiful again.
Try treating yourself to a pampering session and buy a new dress and
shrug for an evening out.

Some clever matrernity ranges double as
breast feeding clothes, saving you money. Clothes which are suitable for
both the pregnancy and nursing stages will let you really get your
money’s worth. Browse nursing tops with hidden concealments, which are
practical and available in beautiful designs. How about a nursing top in
a vest shape with a long, flowing skirt and sandals in summer?

And
don’t be afraid of colour, stand out during pregnancy and nursing with a
bright top or scarf. After allPsychology Articles, being pregnant doesn’t mean you should
sacrifice your sense of style!
