When you first find out that you are expecting a new bundle of joy, a lot of things race through your mind. Am I ready? Will the baby be healthy? Then, finally when you settle down long enough for all the nervous energy to subside, you are faced with another challenge. How will my style change, and what all will I need to be comfortable and stylish at the same time. There are a couple of staple items that every woman should have in her collection as she prepares to embark on the biggest adventure of her life.
Start With a Comfortable Bottom
At the top of your list should be a comfortable go to bottom. That perfect bottom will depend on the time of year that you are dressing for. If you are pregnant in the summer, look for a comfortable short that will breathe well during those humid summer months. Take into account that your waistband needs to be flexible and expand with you as you move further along in your pregnancy. You also need to choose a great pair of jeans that can be worn to an evening event. If possible, look for a darker wash because these will appear to be dressier than a lighter wash. Finally, opt for a great skirt that you can wear with or without leggings so that you can create a more versatile look.
Choose Multiple Tops for Multiple Occasions
In addition to a comfortable bottom, you will need a variety of tops that can be worn to different occasions. Start with a couple of regular t-shirts that can be worn both with the shorts and the denim trousers. Choose colors that will flatter your complexion and that you will also feel beautiful in. Next, opt for one blazer that you can place over the t-shirt and pair with a trouser for an evening event. The most important element to look for when you are choosing the perfect top is the pull away feature that will provide easy access when it comes to the nursing process once the child arrives.
Choose the Right Undergarments
The final element that you need to add to your maternity and nursing collection is the right bra. Look for a bra that will be both comfortable and supportive and understand that as your pregnancy progresses, it is important to continue to have your measurements taken so that you continue to enjoy a comfortable fit. Just as you did with your perfect tops, also consider how comfortable you will be nursing in the bra that you choose.
During one of the most exciting times in your life, it is essential that you keep your focus on keeping your baby healthy and keeping yourself feeling beautiful and comfortable. After all, when you look and feel good baby will too.
