Buying trendy maternity clothes for the right kind of size can be a tricky affair. Ideally, women are often recommended to buy maternity clothes that are of a similar size to their pre-pregnancy days. Now, some women maintain their body size all through the pregnancy even if their adding on the baby weight. Other women can move from size 8 to seize 10 or 11 over the course of pregnancy. So it would be more ideal to buy trendy maternity clothes while keeping all these factors in mind.

At the end of the day the clothes that you wear should fit you appropriately. It should neither be tight not too loose resembling baggy type of clothing. To get the right kind of fit, make routine purchases as the pregnancy progresses.

This is an important area of consideration when it comes to buying trendy maternity clothes. The fabric should be soft, durable and comfortable to wear. You can go in for natural fabrics like modal, cotton or bamboo as these are ‘breathable’ and will help you feel at ease.

You can also buy lycra or spandex based costumes which will stretch and provide support to your body as it transforms.
