Maternity fashion has come a long way. No more moo-moos and big clothing to cover up that adorable belly. It’s all about showing off that bump and embracing pregnancy these days.
I will admit being pregnant in the summer months has made dressing my bump easy. I’m all about dresses. They are both easy and comfortable and I haven’t had to buy much maternity clothes because of it. Because let’s face it, maternity clothes aren’t cheap!
So far I’ve been able to get away with wearing most of my pre-maternity tops. A few are getting too short so a great way to stretch out non-maternity clothes is layering tanks. I picked up two extra-long tanks (black and white) so I could prolong my need for maternity clothes.
It’s a bit harder to keep wearing non-maternity pants. I did the belly band and the rubber band trick for as long as I could but once I couldn’t zip my pants up anymore, I caved.
I have a few pair of great leggings that have worked well for me and a couple of pair of spandex-waisted pants that I could use too.
Here’s my three easy tips for styling the bump:
1) Stay comfortable!
2) Choose classic pieces of maternity wear
So far I’ve had fun styling my growing bump! I’ve had fun picking pieces that even highlight it because it will be awhile until we will be doing this again! I’ll have to do some major convincing if I want a fourth baby!
Here are some of the ways I’ve style the bump so far! It will be interesting as I transition to fall and get bigger. You can follow along on Instagram if you aren’t already-- @glitterandjuls!
