HOW TO WEAR: NON-MATERNITY CLOTHING WHILE PREGNANT

HOW TO WEAR: NON-MATERNITY CLOTHING WHILE PREGNANT

While working on the this post I realized that I really need to find a new way to pose! LOL. Purchasing maternity clothes can be expensive and is something I desperately try to avoid. Having a few essentials help: maternity leggings, loose fitting dresses and shirts. You can see more of my maternity essentials here. Anytime I'm out shopping, I look for things I can possibly wear post pregnancy or have altered later. I put together some of my favorite outfits and a few helpful tips for shopping.

Things to keep in mind are:

  • Fabric 
  • Silhouette 
  • Comfort
  • Accessories 

Favorite places to shop:

Stretchy fabrics and empire waist dresses are my go-to's. Shoutout to my husband who puts up with my need to document. :) Hope this helps any expecting moms!

To give any empire dress a little more shape, use a belt.

This is a bardo top paired with a skirt. I normally am a size 4/6 when I'm not pregnant. This skirt would normally fit on my waist, but, while pregnant, I just pull it up higher.
