How to buy adorable maternity clothes

Updated on September 1, 2012

Being pregnant does not mean you have to sacrifice beauty, style and fashion; however it’s important to know that you can purchase adorable maternity clothes and wear them even after your pregnancy is over. Spend within your budget and look adorable while you are pregnant!

When you first begin searching for comfortable maternity clothes, there are many adorable dresses in Australia you can purchase online. Maternity dresses are comfortable and airy and can be worn during and after pregnancy. You can also choose a “belly button.” It’s simply elastic with buttons, allowing you to widen skirts or pants as your belly begins to grow. Buying a few nice blouses to cover the waistline, nobody will ever know about the “belly button.”

Unless you are carrying more than one, you will not have to begin to buy maternity clothes until after your first trimester. If you have comfortable skirts, pants or dresses they should be able to be worn until the fourth month.

Don’t sacrifice quality when you buy maternity dresses, purchasing adorable inexpensive outfits for a little more can save you money in the long run. Remember you will be wearing the outfits for at least a year or more, losing the weight does not happen overnight unless you are a movie star or have been on an exercise regimen from the beginning.

Place like mamere maternity offer adorable maternity clothing at affordable prices. Gone are the days of non-trendy styles, these days it’s simpler to find adorable outfits are great prices. Choose several outfits that compliment your skin color and your pregnancy. Lycra and spandex breathe and stretches don’t sacrifice quality for discomfort.

Pattern choices

Choose patterns that are not busy or large patterned, keep the outfits simple and classic. Wearing a shirt that is to tight or having your belly hanging out is unflattering when you are pregnant. Pregnancy is a time to look beautiful and be recognized. Wearing solid colors is brilliant and you can use patterned clothing to enhance the outfit you are wearing. Darker colors tend to make you look slimmer and more defined. If you are dressing monochromatic blend the colors well. Colors that are two opposite will make you look larger and wider. When you purchase maternity dresses from Australia they are very light weight and are created by European designers who are fashion minded.

Baggy clothes are a fashion faux-paux not only do you look larger; but you will also look drained and tired. Trying wearing slimming capris or straight-legged pants instead of baggy ones, they are more flattering and will accentuate the few areas that you have gained weight.

Light weight fabrics is the key to comfort and sticking with lightweight fabrics is the key to be comfortable. Materials like cotton tend to breathe and allow your body to remain cool during your pregnancy. Pure synthetics, wool and tweed do not breathe and will make you not only irritable; but just plain miserable when you are wearing it.

All you need when you are pregnant is patience, time and an ongoing desire to look beautiful before and after your pregnancy.

      tlpoague: It so nice when you see the younger generation dress tastefullly when pregnant. Seeing a tight shirt is not really appealing nor beautiful when they are caring such a special gift.

      I have tried for months to get my daughter to wear nice maternity clothes. Instead she opted to cut out the sides of some of her jeans and replaced it with elastic. I felt I was in a loosing battle. She did try to make herself look beautiful instead of going for the baggy look. (Only on the days she didn't feel good and was not going out did she wear her baggy cloths.) She just gave birth to a baby boy on the 2nd, so I am interested to see what she plans to do with her wardrobe now.

      Great hub here! I agree with the others, this younger generation needs to change their style. Thanks for sharing these helpful ideas.

      MsDora: If only they would learn. Tight shirts and baggy pants looks so unappealing they don't really make pregnancy look so wonderful. It is a time to look beautiful and hopefully this hub will guide them. :)

      moonlake: To me the some of them dress is so tacky and unappealing. I have even seem them with there belly bumps showing. I don't find it attractive at all when pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful thing. :)

      Great guidelines. Some pregnant women in this new generation seem not to notice the beautiful elegance of appropriate maternity clothes. You are so right that " Pregnancy is a time to look beautiful."

      When I was young and pregnant they had such cute maternity tops. Now days I hardly ever see a girls wear maternity clothes. They wear tops that are so tight they look uncomfortable. Great hub. Voted uP.

      Hi AEvans - This is very insightful and interestign hub. I am glad the designers are more in tune with a pregnant woman's body nowadays. I remember the horrible maternity clothes back when I was pregnant - looked like a big tent walking down the hallway. LOL In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Lord De Cross: One may never know. lolo! European designers also know the importance of fashion. If only the younger generation would understand how much better they would feel if they dressed nicely in maternity. :)

      Pretty interesting AEvans. Not that I'm going to buy some lately for a partner... but You did give important advice. European designers have that tact for creating sensitive fashion. Thanks! Glad to see you back!
