Maternity dancewear?!

(5 Posts)

I dance a lot, part of an academy & now 12+3, I have checked with my midwife & she said I'm still fine to dance as long as I take it easy when I feel I need too, but I'm really struggling to find dancewear, at the moment I'm okay in my leotards but I am already getting a small bump & am worried that I won't have anything to wear in the coming months. I can't wear leggings & t-shirts for the majority of my classes & really want to keep dancing for as long as possible. Has anyone heard of anywhere that stocks maternity dancewear? Leotards preferably, maternity dance tights? Or any tips to help me keep going with what I've already got?

Have you looked at gym wear incase there is something you could use there?

Hipster tights would sit under your bump. I think your bump might be slower to grow than you think - I'm 29 weeks and still wearing my normal clothes (except skirts). I haven't danced properly for 5 years but my midwife said my core muscles are still strong from dance so holding the baby in neatly, even though I measure exactly right for dates my bump appears small. I've just started wearing Carriwell bump bands for support, I'd recommend them.

I've looked but nothing that really fits what I'm after. :/
owlface I'm getting at small bump already, I'm a size 4/6 with very flat tummy usually & I look bloated/like I have a food baby now. smile

I looked the same at that point too but it is not much bigger now. Its hard to describe but it is like it has turned into baby rather than bloat. It looks firm rather than puffy, if that makes sense. It might be different for you of course but the dance thing rang a bell with me!
