Some people when pregnant have an aversion to real maternity clothes and just prefer to not wear maternity styles. Others, for one reason or another, remain in denial that they are actually pregnant for a while and therefore avoid purchasing maternity clothes. Some other people just do not realize how stylish, versatile and how far maternity clothes have come since our grandparents’ generation. For anti-maternity wear type of people, they need fear not. There are several styles out there that are quite suitable to wear during a pregnancy though they are not exclusive to pregnant women. Here are 5 such styles:
THE MAXI DRESS
This style gives you room to move and grow a belly and come in a variety of flattering patterns that can complement any look. It doesn’t have to be Bohemian necessarily. You can pair these with chandelier earrings and glam it up even.
The A-line cut is one that accentuates the shoulders and mimics the letter A, which is perfect for concealing a growing bump. These dressed by designer Alan Del Rosario are stylish and chic.
THE PEASANT TOP
The peasant top often comes in embroidered patterns that frame the neck or sleeve and often times includes billowy sleeves and are made in spacious cuts, perfect for a blossoming baby bump.
THE EMPIRE WAIST
Empire waist styles can come in short or long dresses and in tops, but they stop below the breastline and then flow out from there. This cut also accommodates a pregnant body well.
THE YOGA PANT
All looks can be paired under a pair of yoga pants which can be worn below the belly at the hip, secure away from your belly as it grows. Of course, there are maternity styles in yoga pants but since many regular styles are made of a blend of lycra and cotton and made to stretch and feel comfortable, you don’t necessarily have to get it in the maternity version if you don’t want.
