On most days, I am seen wearing yoga pants and a long sleeve shirt, but every so often, I don't want to look frumpy and decide to dress up. How do I do this?
- Maxi skirts: I like how I'm able to move at ease while wearing them and not feel like I might be showing too much leg. I prefer wearing a basic black skirt; this way I'm able to dress it up and where it for future pregnancies when other styles may have gone out. Another plus is that you're often able to wear them when not pregnant.
- Cardigans or a jean jacket: I have found that it is essential to layer. Hello hot flashes. Or so it seems. I used to laugh at my mother when she had hot flashes, but now I am much more sympathetic towards her and others.
- Scarves: I did this during my first trimester a lot when it was not common knowledge that I was pregnant. I wanted to try to "hide" my belly. Now I do it to add more layers that can be easily taken off. I can also wear it postpartum when I'm breastfeeding.
- Belts: They helps show your "bump" more and others realize that I am actually pregnant, as opposed to just being big.
- Choose tops while thinking ahead: If you plan on breastfeeding think of tops the will help, such as ones that button down or tops that you can easily pull down or pull up.
PinkBlush maternity sells stylish maternity and nursing clothes,while remaining inexpensive compared to other brands. I was sent the coral crochet neckline maternity/nursing top for review. Upon getting it, I immediately loved the drape and liked the fact that it did not cling too much. I also liked the fact that it was long and had buttons at the top for breastfeeding Lil' J once he arrives. When I first put it on, Drew said, "You look really nice."
Unfortunately, I did not pay attention to the washing instructions which are to "Hand Wash Cold, Hang Dry." I think it would have been fine washing it on cold, gentle cycle, but I washed it regularly with hot water. Let's just say, it shrunk and is now too tight on me.
