Some Quick Tips For Selecting The Right Maternity Clothes

The pregnancy period can be made fun and enjoyable by having a positive attitude and by ensuring that the expectant mother stays comfortable by wearing well fitting maternity clothes. Pregnant women have come of age; no longer do they feel shy or conscious about their growing belly but in fact have begun to highlight it by wearing stylish maternity clothes. Women have begun to enjoy and cherish each stage of their pregnancy and do so wearing the right kind of maternity clothes.

Shopping For Maternity Clothes

Women generally enjoy shopping during pregnancy. It can be extremely enjoyable as you are shopping in anticipation of imminent motherhood. There is a wide choice available in maternity clothes from affordable maternity clothes to trendy maternity clothes. The clothes that you select have to be comfortable and roomy with sufficient space so that you can relax in them instead of wearing clothes that seem to be too tight or too baggy.

Pregnancy clothes are usually needed during the second trimester as the belly starts to expand during that period. Some expectant mothers have not much energy left for shopping owing to the various pregnancy complications and hence just buy extra large baggy clothes that can be worn at all stages of pregnancy. But that is a shame as they have the option of buying a few clothes at a time during the various stages of their pregnancy by conveniently shopping online. Maternity clothes are available in a huge variety online.

Maternity Clothes To Suit All Budgets And Styles

There are clothes to suit all budgets and all sizes. There is amazing variety in petite maternity clothes too. They are designed for people who are 5’4″ and below. Make sure you take into account the weather while purchasing your clothes. If you are shopping online be sure that the size you order is the right size, better yet shop from stores that accept returns just in case.

There are wrap-around cardigans, long skirts, sleeveless dresses, casual trousers, tops, a variety of stretch jeans, adjustable tab jeans and twill pants, capris, sundresses and many more to tempt you. There are maternity clothes that can make you look sexy and hip and there are evening clothes that can make you look gorgeous and ready for a maternity portrait that can capture your unforgettable moments for eternity.

You may even ensure that your nights are comfortable by getting a couple of comfortable maternity pajamas. It may be a good idea to be prepared and pack a few essentials for the delivery and post delivery period. You may shop for nursing tops, breastfeeding covers, nursing gowns etc. perhaps in the early part of the third trimester as it may help you relax later. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy in comfortable maternity clothes.

Are Maternity Clothes Necessary in Order to Look Good During Pregnancy?

I remember my mother telling me about the times when she was pregnant. She was wearing nothing more than my father’s jeans and his working shirts throughout her pregnancy. No maternity clothes for her because she was too poor to buy them at that time. Remember, in her time, which was about 30 years back, maternity clothes used to cost a bomb.

And yet, if you walk along any shopping center these days, you’ll notice at least three or four maternity clothes fashion houses catering to the specifically ‘large’ needs of a pregnant mother. And since the web and the Internet is such a magnanimous thing these days, what about online maternity stores? I’d safely say there are just about half a million legitimate maternity stores right now flailing around the Internet wires for business.

And the amazing thing is that…YES, they make money! And why, I was wondering.

Because of one simple thing….even though my mother (like your mother) and my grandmother (and your grandmother) didn’t need maternity clothes when they were pregnant, the modern generation of pregnant women really, truly DO need maternity clothes. We’re living in an era that is completely different from their time and we cannot compare our pregnancy needs with their needs. The same rules no longer apply.

If you’re pregnant right now and am sitting around here wondering if you should get yourself a whole new wardrobe of maternity clothes, you’re in luck. I have some tips about buying maternity clothes for you.

Buy good-looking maternity clothes that can last at least 3 pregnancies

Like I said, maternity clothes are not cheap these days and maternity clothes are only wearable for the nine months that you’re pregnant and maybe another month or two after that. And when you get back in shape, you’re going to have to shelve those expensive maternity clothes or put the maternity clothes in sad boxes with the edges stuck together with cellophane tape.

So, buy only maternity clothes that are classy and of exceptional quality. You wear maternity clothes only when you plan to go out. For casual outings and at home, stick to your extra large clothes or perhaps, you can buy some large sweaters, t-shirts, overalls, or raglan to wear when you’re not required to look all-that-presentable. It works!

You won’t need CASUAL maternity clothes. In my books, that’s an oxymoron.

Maternity clothes that can double up as breastfeeding clothes later on would be good too

If you intend to breastfeed your baby after the whole pregnancy is over, you would have to think about buying MORE clothes…breastfeeding/nursing clothes. Now, as with maternity clothes, nursing clothes don’t come cheap either. And do we NEED nursing clothes as much as we need maternity clothes? Yes, sometimes we do. I have quite a few fashionable looking nursing clothes that I wear whenever I go out shopping or meeting up with friends. Other times, I wear my t-shirts with holes cut out for easy access to the breast! Yeah, it’s funny, but at home, who’s going to care?

And if you can get your hands on some good maternity clothes that can double up as nursing clothes later on, GO FOR IT! You will get your money’s worth that way.

Style of maternity clothes

Many maternity clothes designers are asleep when they’re designing maternity clothes – the selection is bad. Most of them are nothing but flower after flower, spiral after spiral, safety pins or perhaps some form of teddy bear or another. Forget about them! If you were to buy maternity clothes, invest one that makes you look good. If the maternity clothes are plain, that’s fine, it’s better than making you look like Bozo – most of them do, by the way.

The point is that you want to look CLASSY and DIGNIFIED even though you’re sort of….BIG. and wearing maternity clothes with large orange and yellow flower prints is NOT going to help you do that!

That’s just my opinion, of course, and you’re entitled to have your own opinion about maternity clothes that looks good.

Good luck!
