Maternity fashion rules for newly pregnant moms
March 19, 2009
Newly pregnant moms may be tempted to run out and buy large, oversized clothes or pieces of clothing that do fit with their personal style. Find out some basic rules when shopping for maternity clothes.
Maternity fashion guru Liz Lange recently sat down with PregnancyandBaby.com to discuss maternity clothes essentials for a hip pregnancy.
Lange, who has had a top-selling maternity line for more than 11 years, gave this maternity shopping rule:
“When I started my maternity line 11 years ago, I believed that clothes should be fitted. When you’re pregnant the last thing you want to do is wear big oversized things since, instead of appearing thinner, bigger clothes actually make you look amorphous. Pregnant women should show off their new curves; remember it’s a sexy time- that’s how you got pregnant in the first place! When shopping, pregnant women shouldn’t have to completely change their style in fact they should look for pieces that they usually wear when they’re not pregnant and simply replace them with maternity version.”
