How to Style Your Bump? Pregnancy Styling Tips According to Your Body ShapeAugust 3, 2018
Pregnancy is a blissful time. It’s your time to bask in the anticipation of good days and take your sweet time in enjoying the to-be-mommy protocol you get from people around you. However, between looking forward to having a mini you at home to setting up nursery and babyproofing the house – the pregnancy chores can be a pretty handful to tackle. Dressing up your baby bump in a chic and stylish way amid all this hustle bustle could be the last thing on your priority list. And, that’s why we are here to help.
Work with Your Existing Wardrobe
As emphasized in our previous pregnancy styling guide, you don’t need to rush to the nearest maternity clothing store to haul a bunch of new clothes as soon as you find out you’re expecting. Little alterations in your dresses here and there, if done properly, will allow you to flaunt your regular wardrobe far in your pregnancy. So, the first thing to do is perform a quick wardrobe check. Sort out the clothing items that can be altered to have more space and give in them to last you for as long as you want. Next, book a free appointment at Alexia Alterations and we might be able to give a whole new life to your clothes for your pregnancy.
Identify and dress according to your Pregnancy Body Type
Another thing to focus is determining what your pregnancy body type is. As you go far in your pregnancy, you can no longer identify your body in traditional apple, pear or hourglass shape. Once, you figure out what shape you now fit in, dressing up according to your new shape would get so much easier.
If you have gained baby weight all over your body, don’t fret. Some women tend to get swollen limbs and feet and even bloated face during pregnancy. If that’s the case, dress long and lean. Go for figure-hugging dresses that are long enough to cover your knees. Add longer layers on top matching almost the length of your dress to add more dimension and simultaneously creating an illusion of thinner shape.
If you are carrying high, empire waist or cinched below the bust dresses are your best bet. Separate the bust from your bump with a chic thin belt and flaunt your baby bump in a cute chic way. For mommies who are carrying a little low, high-waisted soft-band maternity pants or tights with loose top or A-line cuts would make a flattering choice or you can pick a jumpsuit to dress up your cute baby bump.
