Clothing Tips for Expecting Moms Hi this is Shannon host of Mommy Matters with babyssentials.com. I wanted to talk you today about looking fashionable while expecting. Of course this is a big topic for anybody who’s newly pregnant and your first concern is “what am I going to wear?’ Back on the day our parents had a lot less to choose from, so we are really fortunate that way and yet some people in the beginning, especially when it’s our first pregnancy, are more concerned with looking cute and looking pregnant as supposed you just looking heavy. I mean let’s be honest. So you wanted when to know you’re pregnant. So you want to maybe play at your bum, second time third time moms it all about comfort. But the bottom line is as long as you feel good you’re going to look fashionable. The better you feel the better your going to look and there is a lot of options in that arena, so along those lines, we wanted to talk about a couple of options to extend your own wardrobe. When your first discovering that your own clothes are not making it through and you’re going to have start considering buying some maternity cloths but they don’t even quite fit yet and your on that in room stage. There are couple of options, there is something called a bra extender, there is some thing called pant extenders and then and they both will work what you already have and literally just fit in to them and make them last a little bit longer until you just really or ready to go in to the true maternity clothing. And then they will fit appropriately. And then the final options along those lines is something called a Bella Band so it looks simple enough, it fits around your belly and it can actually go under a t-shirt that is not maternity. So if your regular shirt seemed to be kind of be popping up a little bit, these will kind of cover you so your belly is not hanging gout, and its also useful even more closer to like eight or nine months when even maternity clothing is doing the same thing and you don’t want your belly to hanging out. So it’s a great way to make anything that you do purchase last longer. One last point would be to keep/stick to the basics and by accents. You have a tendency to go out and see these cute maternity dresses and you want to buy them, but in the long run the other seasonal maybe they just you know there more obvious if you’ve worn them several times at the end, there’s not a whole that fits. And you want to really be comfortable, so find your self wearing the same things again and again to be honest. So anything you can buy what really basic and you can dress it up with something else and then know one is any the wiser that you’ve wearing the same pants every other day. Finally I just say that you really bottom line you want to be comfortable if you have especial occasion and you don’t want to make huge investment, you can always think about renting maternity wear. Again something our parents totally did not have but it’s awesome. So be sure to kind of check out your options, ask friends and you can always borrow clothing as supposed you making a huge investment, and yet you can still feel great and look fashionable while expecting.
