Finding stylish clothes when you are plus size can be a challenge, and when you add in being pregnant, it can seem like an impossible task. However, motherhood doesn’t have to mean you don’t look and feel your best. Whether you like flowy or more form-fitting dresses, plus size maternity clothes should be comfortable and suit your body type. Here are some styling tips to make you look radiant during your pregnancy.
Be cautious when selecting garments during your pregnancy, as oversized clothes may not fit well. Even if the clothes are big enough, you might find them to be baggy is odd places. Clothes that include the material Lycra that can be gathered or tied up in strategic locations will look fashionable and feel comfortable. Soft cotton and silk blends with Spandex will hug your body without squeezing. Try layering lightweight maternity tops with cozy cardigans and sweaters over maternity jeans or pants. Touch the fabric and try it on to see how comfortable the clothes feel.
Enhance the Positives
Adopt boat neck or v-neck tops, which can be adjusted as you grow and that draw attention to neck and shoulders. Make sure to select tops where the shoulder seam is in line with your shoulder joint as droopy seams can leave you readjusting your shirt all day. Embrace bright prints in scarfs, camisoles, stoles, and wraps to layer an outfit or enhance its monochrome tones. Also, don’t be afraid to show off that baby bump. Maxi skirts and dresses can be comfortable ways to show off your new shape at formal or casual events.
Pants, skirts, and leggings with elastic waists are a lifesaver during pregnancy, and they can be worn with shirts, sweaters, tank tops, maternity tops, and blouses. Monochrome tones like black, white, grey, and blue can be used with printed tops and oversized cardigans. The best advantage with elastic waist is that they can be worn above or below the belly your baby bump grows.
Always focus on comfort while selecting clothes during your pregnancy so that you can feel your best during this exciting time.
