work the bump

You look around the maternity clothing stores and what you find most of the time is either casual clothing with lots of maxi and maternity dresses or sports clothing. There are some really cute and work appropriate maternity dresses out there, however when it comes to corporate style the options become very narrow.

So what clothing options is an 8+ months pregnant mama left with during pregnancy? I’ve invested into some maternity basics, such as tees, leggings, bras and underwear. I also love the body con type of dresses that show your growing belly. I’ll be honest, 90% of the time I am reaching for a dress and just throw on a blazer to look work appropriate. Comfort is king during those pregnancy months! Unless you’ve gained a lot of weight, your blazers and cardigans will fit just fine. The rest of the time, I use a rubber-band or one of those comfortable, stretchy belly bands for my regular sized pants (like I did here). Plus, once you are far enough in your pregnancy, you’ll sure appreciate one of those supporting belts as well to take some of the pressure off your back. I’ve been using this one HERE and it makes a big difference!
