Darcy’s Stylish Pregnancy tips:
#1. Be OK repeating outfits and owning less. This is not the time to buy a lot, because you won’t be wearing it long! No one will care if you wear the same thing over and over (you shouldn’t either!).
#2. Get good foundations (like bras, Mama Spanx). Good foundations are essential and also help your clothes fit better and more smoothly.
#3. Consider Maternity and Non-Maternity items. The best-looking outfits are often a blend of true maternity clothing and some stretchy items from “regular” stores. Note the sizing difference: Maternity store sizing will generally correlate to your PRE-pregnancy size, while at regular stores, you’ll probably be up a few sizes.
#4. Comfort is key! Try everything on before buying to make sure it fits and it’s comfortable. Pregnancy is already such an uncomfortable time, you want your clothes to be easy, soft, and forgiving—otherwise you won’t want to wear it.
#5. Accentuate your bump as much as possible. Opt for fitted items to define your bump. This is especially important in the wintertime, since you’ll likely be wearing many layers—lots of loose, bulky items will make you look and feel like tent.
#6. Focus on what you can wear, not what you CAN’T.
Pregnancy is actually a great time to try out fleeting trends or something you wouldn’t normally wear, because it’s so temporary!
