Mothers-to-be want the same thing out of their clothes as other women: they want to look good and feel better. Maternity apparel maker Belly Basics offers tips on shopping in style for the next nine months and beyond:
- Buy seasonless separates that are interchangeable and can be worn around the house and dressed up with a simple accessory when necessary.
- Look for fabrics with stretch and those with simple cuts such as pull-on or side-zip pieces.
- Don’t buy according to trimester; this will add to the cost of your overall maternity wardrobe.
- Avoid oversized garments or men’s shirts; they’re not the camouflage you think they are. Look for more fitted pieces.
