The Ultimate Guide on Buying Maternity Wear
“It’s not a Waddle, it’s Pregnancy Swag.”
Do you remember Anushka Sharma announcing her pregnancy to the world? She showed her baby bump in a stunning black polka-dotted dress. With sheer details, a ruffled hemline and elastic that hugged her waist, she glowed in her no-makeup look.
Why cover your growing belly in oversized T-shirts or tops? If you’ve got it, you flaunt it … Baby!
So before you leave stretch marks on your credit cards, make sure you keep these tips in mind while buying maternity wear:
- Timing is everything!
Most baby bumps start showing at around 20 weeks depending on your height, weight, number of babies and if it is the first pregnancy. Avoid the urge to buy too early (in the first trimester) to allow you time to know what suits you best. In fact, many maternity outfits also have nursing access which increases their utility even after your pregnancy.
2. What do I buy?
Your daily routine should be a major factor that decides the type of clothes. Some things that you should look at before Adding to Cart are
- Are you working from the office or home?
- For which seasons will you be using the clothes?
- Are any big occasions like Weddings / Festivals coming up?
- Will there be a Baby Shower or a Maternity Shoot?
And finally, wear what makes you feel comfortable and feels effortless and fun.
3. Fit, Finish and Flatter
Deck up your building belly so that it not only looks great, but also makes itself useful. While choosing you must look out for additional features in all your casual as well as party-ready outfits. Some of the small things that will make a big difference are
- Silhouette Enhancing
- Lightweight & Comfortable
- Side Pockets
- Gathers at the waist
- Elastic with nursing access
4.“Yeh mere size me dikhana …”
Measurements are important as you have to consider outfits that you can wear right from your early pregnancy up to your nursing. Measure yourself at different times but make sure that you are doing it right.
- Bust: Measure under your arms around the fullest part of your chest
- Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your body above the legs
- Length: Measure the top part down the legs
