Feeling good in Maternity clothes  |  Blog

It can be so hard to feel comfortable and yet still feel stylish when you are waddling around feeling the size of a whale BUT I have found this pregnancy that you can still feel good in maternity clothes! When I had Pickle I think I thought I should look frumpy... I was going to be a Mum so needed to dress practical and wear sensible clothes. What I didn’t understand is that sensible didn’t have to be boring and frumpy so today I wanted to share with you my top tips for staying comfortable whilst feeling and looking good in pregnancy.

1. Get a good bra

Bras are fundamental to a look even though you can’t see it. Bras help us feel secure, confident and supported and the last thing you want when your boobs are a bit achy anyway is to be sticking with your pre pregnancy underwired bras as they are just uncomfortable. On the flip side, maternity bras can leave you feeling and looking unsupported and droopy which also isn’t good for your back or posture. I would highly recommend investing in a premium bra that has no underwire yet gives you some decent support. Something like the below would be perfect.

2. Dress to your strengths 

Feel most confident about your bump? Show it off! Loving your new pregnancy boobi? Rock them! Feeling uncomfortable and “whale” escque? Dress in comfies! Do what you feel as when you dress for you and not other people you will feel so much more comfortable! During this pregnancy I have been loving my bump and have made sure my outfits compliment and show my bump off rather than hiding it away under baggy clothes.

3. Maxi dresses are your best friend 

Maxi dresses are so easy to wear whilst still being stylish. The best thing is that they are so versatile as you can dress them 
down with a pair of converse or flip flops or you can dress them up with jewellery and some cute sandals. The best part is that they are super comfortable to wear no matter what stage of pregnancy you are at. 

4. Mix it up 

Got a really comfy summer dress that you want to wear but it’s raining outside? Don’t worry... still wear the dress but just accessorise to the season. Wear your dress with black tights, ankle boots and a leather jacket to instantly go from summer to autumn meaning that your super comfy dress that makes you feel great can be worn no matter what the weather.

5. Invest in some great basics

I’m all for wearing my pre pregnancy clothes for as long as I can but there are somethings that you will need no matter how hard you try. Basics such as vest tops, leggings and jeans are a maternity must and I would recommend investing in some decent quality basics as you will be surprised how much you wear them. When I had Pickle I brought cheap and cheerful maternity jeans and the quality was naff. In the last trimester I was in maternity clothes pretty much the whole time so it is definitely worth paying a little more for items you know will last and you won’t have to repurchase.

So there we have it. My top tips for staying comfortable yet still feeling stylish in your pregnancy. Think I’ve missed anything or have any tips that helped you feel stylish during pregnancy? Let me know in the comments below!
