Fun ways to show off your baby bump
September 16, 2012
Are you over just looking “bloated” and ready to officially show off your baby bump? Check out our favorite fashionable ways to show off your baby bump!
Belt it! Whether it is a flowing tunic top or loose maxi dress, belt it to give your body shape and definition to draw attention to your baby bump. You can belt it above your bump – or you can belt it below!
Embrace ruching! Look for dresses and tops that have ruching along the sides to grow and flatter your changing bump. Isabella Oliver has amazing ruched tops and dresses, such as the pictured Ruched T Shirt Dress ($159).
Wrap it! A wrap dress is the perfect look for pregnant moms-to-be. The design fits and flatters your bump and shows it off – however always looks sophisticated enough for work. One great option is the Elbow Sleeve Faux Wrap Maternity Dress ($40, Motherhood Maternity).
Tie it! Look for dresses or tops with tie backs or adjustable buttons/ties on the side that allows the top to grow with you. Avoid buying oversized dresses or tops expecting that you will grow into them, as this will only make you look larger than you really are! Clothes that fit and gently skim your pregnancy curves will look flattering from trimester one to trimester three. One great option is the Jessica Simpson Short Sleeve Scoop Neck Dolman Sleeve Maternity Tunic ($44, Motherhood Maternity).
Maternity leggings are another essential item, as they can be paired with belted tunic tops and boots for a chic look. In fact, Rachel Zoe called Ingrid & Isabel Low-Rise Leggings “the ultimate preggo necessity.”
