Tips for Buying Maternity Clothes

Buying maternity clothes doesn't have to be stressful. Just because you're pregnant, it doesn't mean that you have to compromise on being fashionable or comfortable. 

Here are my top tips for buying maternity clothes:

1) Keep your own style
Even though you will be changing shape, you don't have to change your style. If you normally wear dresses and leggings stick to that. Don't all of a sudden decide you're a jeans  kind of person.

2) Don't feel like you have to hide your bump
Nowadays people like to show their bump. I must admit I didn't do it but I think that was from a lack of self confidence. Buy clothes that fit around your bump if you feel comfortable enough to do it.

3) Don't spend lots of money
You can pick up lots of things in sales and then just pick up a few key pieces to see you through the whole 9 months.

4) Make sure you buy comfortable shoes
Your feet my swell when you are pregnant so you may need to buy some wider, cushioned shoes for extra comfort.

5) Buy clothes that stretch
This may sound very obvious but try buying clothes with a more stretchy material. That way they are more comfortable and they will grow with your bump.

6) Get fitted for a new bra
Your breasts will change shape and get bigger over the course of the 9 months so make sure you are in the correct sized, supportive bra.

7) Buy clothes suitable for breastfeeding 
If you are planning on breastfeeding then keep your eye out for clothes that would be suitable for that. Layered clothes are perfect such as vests, loose jumpers, ponchos etc.
