How to dress pregnant? 5 clothes, on which you will build a pregnancy wardrobe

pregnancy fashion

How to dress during pregnancy is a topic that will not be missed by any future mother. While buying maternity clothes is undoubtedly a pleasure, I am definitely in favor of moderation in this topic. Most maternity clothes will last only a few, maximum 5 months, so I would not like to spend too much on them, and of course I would like to look and feel attractive. Meet my 5 must-have clothes that will allow you to create a "capsule wardrobe", i.e. a pregnancy wardrobe in a nutshell.

1. Maternity jeans

This is probably the first-bought first pregnancy clothes.

In my previous pregnancy, I opted for gray jeans, which I still wear today - I like them so much that even after pregnancy I couldn't part with them. The gray color was a perfect match for my entire wardrobe and I'm sure it will blend in perfectly with yours as well. For me, gray jeans are a bit more formal version of the navy blue and worn ones, which I also love. That's why the first pants I bought during this pregnancy were navy blue jeans. I know that I am going to give birth in them and for much longer, I have been wearing my first jeans for 3 years!

When choosing pregnancy jeans, I focused on these with a very low waist and a material belt pulled over the tummy - in my opinion, pants without this belt hold worse and are not so comfortable, later, when our blouses become shorter and shorter, they also help to reveal the naked belly, which not everyone wants.

My choice:

Proven quality for reasonable money.
Size: I bought both pairs in size 38, although every day I wear size 40 in H&M, so if you would like to buy pants from the H&M MAMA collection online, I recommend a size smaller than the everyday wearable.

 

2. Black leggings

I will not pretend that leggings are pants, but I will also not hide that they are much more comfortable than jeans - even maternity ones, with a very low waist, elastic waist and elastane in the composition ... High-quality, elastic leggings are much more comfortable than even the best jeans, and they will also be useful after childbirth, when we are no longer pregnant, but still look like 4-5 months. If you have to give birth by Caesarean section, you'll love these soft pads even more when you leave the hospital. Every day, you can combine them with both sports sneakers or running shoes, as well as ballet shoes or elegant high heels. In them you will go to a restaurant and spend the whole day on the couch.

When buying maternity leggings, I was guided by the fact that they were not ordinary high-waisted leggings, but special maternity leggings, necessarily with a cut-off under the belly (models without cut-off often stick out and hang unsightly on the back) and high waisted. Here I focus on quality - when making my choice, I paid attention to what material they are made of and I rejected the 100% cotton ones - they push out in the knees and fade in the sun, and the whole summer is ahead of me. I also rejected the lycra ones - they don't breathe and don't have such an intense black color. I focused my eyes on those with cotton and some additives, those made of viscose and polyamide - will they definitely not shine through?

My choice:

I am waiting for the delivery of two pairs of black leggings from Zalando and I will definitely let you know if I managed to choose something, and if you have any wonderful black leggings worth recommending - be sure to let us know.

 

3. Flexible shirts

Not necessarily pregnancy, because after pregnancy they will unnecessarily emphasize the enlarged tummy - I focus mainly on ordinary t-shirts, only in slightly larger sizes, and check how stretchy they are. During pregnancy, they will beautifully emphasize your growing belly, but after pregnancy, they will also be perfect - they will not emphasize excess folds. I also bet on those with slightly longer sleeves - I expect extra pounds, so they will perfectly cover the shoulders. I mainly choose plain or striped t-shirts, but I think I'll also get one with funny inscriptions. This t-shirt fits perfectly with all the elements from this set, which will allow you to create many different styles.

However, at the end of pregnancy, you probably will not do without a typical pregnancy t-shirt, especially if you are tall - the usual ones, after stretching over a larger belly, can quickly become too short for you.

My choice:

I usually choose flexible T-shirts in ZARA and H&M stores, I also have one favorite from New Look, but unfortunately this season I cannot find such long and pleasant ones in their offer. I have maternity t-shirts from a previous pregnancy from the H&M MAMA store - not all of them are of great quality, but I wore them quite shortly, they did not have time to get damaged, although some of them "twisted" around their axis - you know what I mean - the seams instead of going upright under the armpit wrapping around you.

 

4. A simple dress

It's the perfect outfit for any research, every day and on holidays. The simpler the style you choose, the more universal the character of the dress will be, and with accessories you will create a stylization suitable for both a daily walk and an evening out.

Bravo you, if you limit yourself to one ... I also dream of a long dress with navy blue and white stripes.

My choice:

fashion maternity dress happymum

I bought this yellow dress 3 years ago in a store Happymum, I had all the parties, parties and weddings in that season, but despite the not low price around PLN 200, I lacked the lining that would make the dress fit much better. Unfortunately, this brand sews dresses without lining, which is a big drawback for me.

 

5. Long sweater without fastening

One that will never be too small in waist - brilliant, right?

It is perfect for a dress, T-shirts, jeans and leggings to give warmth, slim the figure and cover this and that (remember - leggings are not pants, but transparent leggings are definitely not pants and when we leave the house in them, the pupa should be covered). In spring and summer, it will replace a coat or jacket, in winter it will keep you warm under a long jacket, and will continue to serve well after pregnancy. Especially if you are breastfeeding.

    Great post! The worst thing is that you can forget about your favorite clothes during pregnancy, so you need to refresh your wardrobe

    I must say that black maternity leggings are a brilliant invention. They are perfect for a loose sweater. It was for this that I had two pencil elastic (pregnancy skirts), which worked perfectly because I could wear normal blouses. Plus two dresses. By the way, most things can be bought used and in good condition, because such an expectant mother will not destroy much 🙂

    And I'm interested in good-quality underwear for pregnant women. The online store is the only solution for me at the moment - I do not want and strength to visit a shopping mall. Can you recommend me something?

    It is always worth having basic clothes that will allow you to create many universal styles. There aren't many clothes in the wardrobe, but they are practical enough that we have no problem with what to wear, and it belongs to the classics. In turn, in such stylizations that you proposed, I appreciate the matching accessories and recently I fell in love with carbon earrings. I did not expect that they can look elegant, stylish and super feminine. In turn, pants and tunics were such a critical point in the pregnancy proposals. I had a problem with them sliding off and the tunics looked like really short dresses or blouses, and I had trouble finding the right one. Sometimes c & a clothes from the h & m chain store were my savior

    Very interesting inspirations.

    Very nice photos, but the fact that these few simple clothes allows you to dress well and feel comfortable in every situation.

    Great post! You showed in a very simple and clear way how to diversify your maternity wardrobe, but now, when I gave birth to my Tosia, the simple dress was replaced by a nursing dress, which is a very convenient solution when we are lucky in a disaster and we can breastfeed. Sometimes I struggle with the fact that the little one can "suck on" well, but I feel pain for a long time. In any case, I do not have to reach for modified milk yet, but I am trying to do it with small steps and I will choose the right bottle for Tosia and for her 🙂 It's a pity that I didn't find your entry earlier, my wardrobe would not be so sexless, but more feminine as from the times without belly 🙂

    I recommend the 9fashion pregnancy clothes shop, very comfortable clothes - very good quality materials, and a large selection. I dressed all of them in my pregnancy, now the online store is running, so the availability is even better.

    I recommend maternity jeans from Salsa Wonder. They are wonderfully sewn, they have a detachable belly strap and they not only fit well, but also improve nature, e.g. push-up maternity jeans. Their disadvantage may be the price around 99 euros. But I think these are the best maternity pants in the world that you can wear all pregnancy and after.

    Long and unbuttoned sweaters are the best solution! It is comfortable and stylish. There is a very large selection at the Outlet Center in Lublin, I have recently seen knotted, shorter, longer, in different colors.

  • 20.03.2017

    All these wardrobe items will work not only for pregnant women! :) I think that a woman should have black leggings, an elastic undershirt, a sweater without a fastener and a simple dress! :)

    I had my biggest tummy from the end of May to mid-August and I was wearing T-shirts with shoulder straps and a short CUBUS sleeve. I highly recommend them - they are long, cover the tummy until the very birth, super flexible (I wear them now and do not wear a trace of 110 cm around the waist 😉 and breathable. Price is also affordable.
    Best regards!

      Well, it will be similar with us - our deadline is mid-August 🙂

    Hello, I also bought pants from the h & m mama collection, generally I wore size 36 before pregnancy, with h & m I already had one size 38 pants, of course, I preferred to try on and watch it live, I chose size 38, on the day of purchase they were ok, still anyway there are, although after my thighs have acquired an additional 4 cm, after removing the pants, I have imprints on my skin where the pants have stitching, so I was surprised to read that you are buying maternity pants a size smaller than usual, I was of course also entering 36, but I didn't want to put pressure on my body like that, best regards
    ps. I'm here for the first time and navigating your blog seems pleasant 🙂

    • 06.03.2017

      It's good that everything can be returned today 😉 as you can see, each of us is different and each of us during pregnancy changes differently. Thank you for your kind words 🙂

      Thank you for the recommendation - and is this elastic at the waist button comfortable? I have a string in one of my pants and I hate it. However, in other pants or leggings, I have a very flexible belt for the belly and no elastics or strings are needed and that's what I like the most.

    I also have a lot of basic things with h & m I do not want to overdo it because then I feel sorry. For work I have black pants and black elastic pencil skirts and shirts (because they are good for feeding later), tops and sweaters for the weekend I have nice pants ala tracksuit with hm typical belly. I want to buy jeans, but I don't know what kind of jeans I have to measure against, um, how do you recommend.

    • 21.02.2017

      I have just 2 pairs of jeans, both from H&M, both for about PLN 150, somehow a sensation - I have the impression that it is much better than the one in the normal series. And the choice is also very large, various cuts, colors and sizes - it is definitely worth going there first.

    I didn't find the leggings. I had jeans with turtleneck for the stomach, short and long skirts, shirts met your criteria and a buttonless sweater 🙂

    • 21.02.2017

      For me, leggings are a great outfit around the house or for a walk in the summer. Now, especially when it's Miki and we are crazy about the floor, jeans worn for a long time tire me out. And you know that I didn't have any skirts? Only with two dresses.

    Welcome. As for me, the best maternity pants that have been invented for us women. In my first pregnancy, my stomach was under my stomach and it was sliding down terribly, which made me terribly nervous. Now I have a second pregnancy and I have 4-5 pairs of maternity pants and about 10 maternity blouses for as long as short sleeves. From the side, there is a great wrinkle, I think that after pregnancy I will easily wear them because they will hide the fold somewhere. I wanted to buy some clothes, but with a large breast, long torso and belly, I had a problem with finding something meaningful and in my color tastes (it was difficult for me to find the size when my belly grew and the blouses became too tight or too short). I recommend clothes from H&M (Mama series) and Mothercare (super cotton). I also have one Newlook blouse I bought on sale by accident long before I was pregnant and it is even, but somehow poor choice.

    • 21.02.2017

      Oh yes maternity pants with a material for the belly - I somehow love to have my tummy covered, not exposed. Indeed, when you are tall, typical pregnancy blouses will be better for you, although H&M has a collection of basic ones in the long version and they work great for me, although I will probably jump into the ones with special ruffles closer to the end. I love H&M Mama, and I haven't been to wMother Care yet - how do they look cheap compared to H&M? Because clothes for children are much more expensive apart from sales than standard chain stores.

      I currently live in the UK and Mothercare goes out of the way than H&M I suspect is the same in Poland). I recently had a chance to buy 2 short-sleeved blouses for £ 15. Quality worth recommending. Clothes for children are also more expensive, but we all like sales and I buy the next one at the end of a given season, because I already know more or less how much my daughter will grow up or hunts for combined offers, e.g. second thing 50% cheaper. It is known that sometimes the so-called "Must have" and if I have free funds, I do not wait for the sale.

    • 21.02.2017

      I admit that recently I have completely forgotten about this store - there is probably only one shopping center here, and this is where I am a rare guest, their offer for Children is exceptionally beautiful, but I remember it as very expensive, offers for mothers in I do not know pregnancy at all, so I know where I will go at the earliest opportunity, thank you for the hint. Maybe they will also have some good quality leggings. For the baby, I am not preparing anything for now, because everything I watch is either very girlish or boyish, and I don't know who lives in the tummy.
