I have purchased a few maternity bits now, namely v-necked tops because I don't like my tops being too short over my bump (It's just me!)
Anyone think of any style must have's for pregnancy?
I can already feel the same old, same old thing coming on with my choices of clothes.
Any terrific ideas out there?
I hate the way so many maternity clothes are designed to minimize the bump, or to look like the sort of clothes you would wear flat-stomached. Personally I liked to make much of my bump, so my favourite styles were (and would be now, were I pg) practical comfy trousers with floaty tops that tied under the bust to emphasise my bump.
Wide-legged or flared trousers are good, too, I think, because they add a bit of lightness to your movement, and if you need to wear comfy shoes but look smart, well then they hide the shoes!
I like the dress over trousers idea.
Do you have any suggestions.
I think as someone always wary of looking overweight anyway, I have always tended to try and appear less so. I do love your philosophy of celebrating your bump pretty candles. It will require some mental adjustment for me though. So I shall need a little help.
Your right, I should be proud of my bump, everyone said how well I looked last time.
Sorry, I didn't mean to preach, or tell you how you should feel, just how I feel. I was a size 18 when I got pg, and resented the fact that it was difficult to get anything other than a sack to wear. Plus, for once I could flaunt my belly!
