When those two blue lines appear, every mum-to-be knows that her life is going to change forever. One of the first changes that pregnant women have to contend with is the changing shape of their body. The flourishing curves of pregnancy offer an exciting opportunity for expectant mums to indulge their passion for fashion.
Pregnancy is an exciting time and a burgeoning bump is something to be proud of, so it is important to select outfits that can show off your new shape to its best advantage. In the past pregnant women faced a limited choice when it came to styles, forcing them to hide their bumps under baggy garments, these days maternity wear is available in a range of classy and classic cuts offering women a wide selection of stylish garments that can take them through their pregnancy and beyond.
The beauty of modern maternity ranges, such as that offered by Vertbaudet, is that the designers understand the unique demands that garments will have to fulfil in order for the expectant mother to feel both comfortable and stylish as her due date approaches.
Stylish garments designed specifically to be worn during pregnancy will not only flatter the ultimate feminine form of a pregnant woman, but will also have been custom created in order to provide the pinnacle of pregnancy comfort where possible.
When shopping for maternity wear, most modern mums-to-be will need to consider two styles – a more formal or work wear wardrobe, and a selection of maternity clothes for casual wear. However, these can be combined with the creation of a clever capsule wardrobe to take the fashion conscious woman from work to play with a few quick changes and careful accessorising.
Creating a Capsule Maternity Wardrobe
When putting together a maternity wardrobe, the key thing to consider is existing style. Vertbaudet has a great range of stylish maternity wear and no mum to be should feel pressured to change the clothes that she feels comfortable in as a concession to her pregnancy. A good rule of thumb for the soon-to-be mum is to put together a collection of maternity outfits that echo the style of pre-pregnancy favourites, as this will keep the wearer within her fashion comfort zone and give her the confidence to show off her changing shape, safe in the knowledge that she has not departed from her preferred fashion style.
Maternity Wear Essentials
When creating a wardrobe for pregnancy, start with the foundations and invest in some specially designed underwear. Modern maternity ranges offer a great selection of stylish pieces, with features designed to support a changing body.
The next essential maternity clothing items are trousers and skirts; choose from tailored or flowing designs to suit your own style, safe in the knowledge that all will have been cut to accommodate the new found curves. A good pair of maternity jeans is also a must for the mother to be, and these are available in every imaginable incarnation from Boyfriend-fit to Bootcut and cropped leg to kick flare.
Maternity tops come in a range of styles, with some great fitted shirts on offer as well as a wide range of tunic tops and T-shirts. Many women find they prefer a longer line in pregnancy as this reduces the chance of “bump-ride” with the garment slowly creeping up their burgeoning belly.
Coats and jackets come in a selection of styles and curve-conscious cuts, meaning there is no need to sacrifice style.
The final essential for any expectant fashionista is a luxurious and comfortable cardigan, with soft knits being a great choice for snuggling in while you await your due date.
