Thanks to Victoria Beckham and countless other celeb yummy mummies, dressing frumpy while pregnant is now a thing of the past. After all, who says you can’t make every day your catwalk when you’re expecting? Especially when your style has always been classy and sophisticated pre-bump, why not extend your fashion sense and make your latest accessory the stand-out piece in your outfit?
If you’re wondering what to wear while pregnant, we’ve got you covered – literally. Think flowy maxi dresses, empire waistlines, and stretchy fabrics that offer comfort as well as style (we just think to steer clear of the heels – ouch!) With our outfit ideas, you’ll feel just like the #BOSSMUM you were meant to be.
Nail the maternity style with effortless ease
We know a thing or two about what it feels like to be pregnant. Yes, you’re tired, you’re moody, and you can’t fit into your favourite pair of jeans anymore. Oh, the horror! The last thing you probably want to do is put energy towards manifesting an outfit to see your friends, go to work or even head down to the shops. But fear not: with our cute collection, the idea of putting outfits together will be as much fun as it was before you got that adorable little bump.
The key is that you can wear practically anything, but just go up a size or two. That way, you can wear them right up until you’re due (and you can even lounge around in it post-baby!)
Here are some fun and stylish bump-friendly choices to consider.
1. Say yes to the dress
When it comes to pregnancy fashion – or fashion in general, for that matter – the number one rule is this: don’t force yourself into anything you don’t like. So, if your maternity style is track pants and oversized tees, that’s totally fine. You don’t need to change up your whole look just because you’ve got a little bump. You might still want to wear dresses, which is perfectly fine too.
The key to dresses is to go comfy, easy and breezy. Think elasticised waistband, flowy and fabrics that are breathable, like rayon. This type of fabric does a good job of keeping you cool in hot, humid climates. Plus, it looks great.
2. Skirts to love
Not a dress kinda gal? We hear you. If you’re a lover of mid-length or even maxi skirts, then you’ll appreciate them even more when you’re sporting a bump. With their elasticised waistband, you can position our skirts comfortably above the bump to disguise it or below your hips to show off your new addition. Maxi skirts can be worn in trans-seasonal weather as well – just add stockings underneath and you’re good to go.
3. Wear the pants
Just like our skirts, our pants have elasticised waist as they’re designed to grow with you. Ultra-comfortable and super stylish, our leggings and casual pants are perfect for those days when you just want to lounge around. There’s something to fit and flatter every shape. Prefer the ease of a jumpsuit? We’ve got you covered, with a strapless off-the-shoulder style and elasticised across both the bust and waist. Ahh, the luxury.
4. Tops to go
Of course, you need a cute top to match your Billy J pants or skirt. We have just the selection for you to wear during and after your pregnancy. With statement sleeves, ruffled flares, hem detailing and pretty patterns, there’s nothing plain about our tops.
5. The footwear
You may feel like living in your plush slippers but what if we told you there were more stylish – and just as comfortable – footwear options? Our slides are just that, providing the support you need without compromising your comfort. With their slip-on and slip-off ease, you won’t need to twist and contort to put them on.
