Fashion tips for pregnancy and beyond: How to stay stylish in maternity and nursing wear!

Pregnancy is a great excuse to treat yourself to some new clothes!
With such a wide range of maternity and nursing wear available, there’s
no better time to be pregnant.

Maternity and Nursing Tops and Dresses

Say
hello to your new best friends: the wrap, smock, tunic and empire line!
These are great because they highlight the thinnest part of your body
above your bump, proudly showing off your new impressive curves. Look
out for solid block colours; black and white staple tops and flirty
purples and pinks for something more eye-catching. A bold print or
brightly coloured wrap dress will keep you cool in summer and warm in
cooler months when worn with leggings.

You don’t have to spend a
fortune if you’re saving for the birth of your little one. Many
maternity tops and dresses can be worn throughout the nursing period
too, with cleverly concealed openings for discrete feeding. Maternity
feeding tops, also available in plus sizes, are an ideal money-saving
option as they can be worn throughout both the pregnancy and nursing
stages.

Invest in natural fabrics like cotton and bamboo as they
will keep you cool and comfortable, and mixes containing a small
percentage of elastane (sometimes called spandex) will stretch to fit
your changing bump. Comfort and support doesn’t mean you have to
sacrifice style!

Luxury brands like Mothers en Vogue, Annee
Matthew and Paola Maria use high quality organic materials to create
exceptional nursing top and dress designs. You’ll have a choice of
concealed openings such as empire line, side seam, neckline or drop cup
access, each specially designed to offer convenient feeding while
maintaining privacy. Quality is important when buying maternity tops – a
well-made maternity/nursing combination top can be worn for years!

Trousers and Skirts

As
you reach the later stages of pregnancy, you’ll probably find your
trousers or skirts no longer fit. Invest in a belly band to cover up
open zips and buttons and provide extra support, before you move on to
elasticated maternity trousers and skirts.

Nursing Accessories

It’s
impossible to have too many handbags! Complement your new maternity and
nursing wear with a new design, big enough to carry all your baby’s
belongings.

Koochu’s luxury changing bags look like regular
designer handbags, and can be used as one, but they also come with
clever concealed practical features like a removable and washable
lining, water resistant double sided changing mat, thermo-insulated side
pockets for baby bottles and even a nappy compartment. When style is
this practical, you have no excuse to carry a bright plastic Winnie the
Pooh changing bag!

For extra coverage when feeding your baby, a
wide scarf can be a great addition to your nursing wear. Other than
this, accessorize as normal. A belt may be uncomfortable, but how about
treating yourself to a chunky necklace to compliment your new maternity
feeding top?

Buying maternity and nursing wear isn’t rocket
science. Stay comfortable with well-designed pieces, and, most
importantlyPsychology Articles, have fun with your style!
