Maternity Wear: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

I have such a love-hate relationship with maternity wear. Don’t you find that there is such a gap in the market? We start to gain water and weight from before 12 weeks yet all the maternity wear is aimed at the size you are from around 7 months. Nothing fits from your normal wardrobe and you end up traipsing the shops for the very limited range of maternity clothes available to you. ‘Oh you can buy it online’ you hear time and time again but I don’t always want to buy online, I want to go into a shop, look at the sizes and try them on! And why are the styles mostly floaty, high necked, v-necked and with unflattering cut sleeves? Pregnant women are still the same people and even though their bodies change their tastes and fashion sense don’t; we want to feel like us as much as we can!

Shoestrings Are For Budgets Only!

Most women want to keep up with the latest trends but don’t have the cash. Fashion is expensive and, sadly, there are more important things in life.

My Maternity Wear Wishlist

Now that everybody is in the know about my pregnancy it means that I can begin to get excited about getting bigger and finding some gorgeous new maternity clothes for the upcoming months. I hardly showed with Jake and didn’t get that amazing round bump until I was roughly 8 months. This time around I have taken shape quite quickly and I’m already struggling with certain jeans and tops.

Dressing for a new you- 3 images of me in new clothes

Dressing For a New You

I don’t know about the rest of you but since becoming a Mother I have somewhat felt that I have lost my identity. I have been slowly drowning in baby paraphernalia, baby feeding, caring, nappy changes, weaning, teething, baby sick and feeling exhausted. It’s probably easily done in the first year but I am 2 1/2 years on and my days have been spent wearing the same jeans several times a week, grabbing the first top I see in my wardrobe and not noticing how worn out most of my clothes actually look.

My Top Tips to New Mum’s for Looking Good

I’ve had a few friends become new Mummy’s the last couple of weeks and it got me to thinking about how I found it having my first baby. I was pretty adamant that I didn’t need a book to tell me what to do or expect, because in my eyes, every baby is completely different; I chose to learn ‘on the job’. Brave or stupid? I’m still not sure!
