There are lots of tricks that will let you modify your normal clothes that you wore before becoming pregnant into comfy maternity wear that will last you a few months. Eventually your body will scream ‘I’m pregnant!’ and you’ll have to dive right into
maternity purchases. Before you get to that point, however, lots of your old clothes can be tweaked a little to fit you perfectly for the first couple of months. Here’s how!
Learn How To Rock Your Maxi Dress
Your favorite pre-pregnancy maxi dresses can still look wonderful on your during the early stages of pregnancy. Up until the third or fourth month, your baby bump is still small enough not to be
noticed under a stretchy, flowing dress. The tick to pulling off a maxi dress with style is to pick out one of your favorite narrow belts and wear it loose over your dress just underneath your
bump. Complete the look with a long, flowing, open cardigan and you’ll look stylish as sexy without having to buy new clothes.
Put Some Stretch Into Your Favourite Pants
Your regular jeans and pants definitely won’t fit you within a few months of falling pregnant but stretch ones definitely will. Simply take your favorite stretch pants and wear them with the
front buttons or zipper open. You can use a tiny elasticized hair scrunch and loop it over the button, through the button hole and back again. This gives you vital extra inches around your hips
without having to buy new pants or leggings. You can wear loose or baggy tops to cover the open crotch or large ‘boyfriend’ shirts to hide the scrunchie.
When Your Body Starts To Scream!
After the fourth month you’ll have to start shopping for maternity wear, if not sooner! What’s great about the above tips is that they can still work alongside conventional maternity wear. For
example, tunics make great maternity tops and can be worn over your old pants if you follow the scrunchie tip outlined above. Fabric tunics are tough enough to give you at least a year of wear
How To Look Great In Maternity Wear
The secret to looking great in maternity tops is to spend a lot of time and money choosing the perfect bra. If you ever look at a woman who doesn’t seem to have bought a very flattering top,
their choice of bra is usually the culprit. If you want your top to hide excess rolls of fat, of produce a flattering appearance for your upper body, you will need to have a well-designed bra
carefully fitted to give you maximum support and comfort.
Choose Free And Flowing Styles For Maximum Versatility
When choosing maternity tops, you’ll want to go with flowing designed that allow you to wear them in a number of ways. Free-flowing tops can be worn over the top of your old dresses that still
fit and will make it possible to create lots of new outfits after you give birth. Look for durable fabrics that will outlast your pregnancy and see you well into the start of motherhood.
