1. Play up your new curves
Maximize your new cleavage by drawing attention to your curves with plunging necklines, scoop or V tops. This instantly elongates your neck and gives you an overall slimming effect.
2. Select your fabric
Stretch and drapey fabrics like jersey fit seamlessly into every wardrobe. Opt for tops or dresses in lycra-based fabrics and you’ll see how their silhouette grows with you and always fits. Bonus: These pieces work great before, during AND after pregnancy!
3. Keep it simple
The world’s most stylish women choose clean lines and quality fabrics. Work your look around sleek shapes, good cuts, pregnancy friendly fabrics and solid colors for that polished finish.
4. Perfect fit
Choose clothes for a body flattering fit. Reveal your pregnant shape with wrap styles that follow your curves and adjust at every stage.
5. Accentuate your best features
Clever maternity designs enhance your best features; that elegant neck, delicate shoulders and fulsome cleavage accented with a low V neck, halter shape or sleek bandeau.
6. Add new accessories
Create different moods for one outfit by playing with the latest accessories. Add a slouchy bag and wide cuff one day, a sparkly necklace and upswept hair the next. Invent a new look every day. You’ll be amazed how a simple go-to ensemble can radically change simply by mixing up the accessories!
7. It’s a shoe thing
Take that iconic look from work day to party night by swapping boots for sexy heels. Take along your softest ballerinas for blissful comfort on the way home. It’s that simple.
8. Stay true to size
If you’re tempted to buy bigger, don’t succumb. The extra fabric in non-maternity wear may cover your bump, but it will swamp all your body’s sexy new curves. No more tents, mamas. Form-fitting pieces are the way to go. Seriously.
