There are many new challenges and changes you may face when pregnant, from morning sickness to your new body shape. However, one of the most frustrating things for an expectant mother can be what to wear during pregnancy – is there any style that is both flattering yet comfortable? To help you dress your new baby bump, take some maternity chic tips from the stars.
Not only is all white one of the hottest catwalk trends of the year, but it is also very flattering to a burgeoning baby bump. Gleaming white conceals everything you want it to, whilst making you look chic, elegant, feminine and fresh. The queen of this look, and of maternity chic in general, is Kim Kardashian. Usually known for her curvaceous figure and for inspiring a rush of bottom and breast enhancement appointments all over the world, the reality star has been quite demure and very classy in her outfit choices of late. Kim has been spotted in many gorgeous all-white outfits, from a white Grecian-inspired gown and lashings of diamonds at an Academy Awards viewing party to a white lace babydoll dress and a sexy red lip when appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel show at the start of the year.
The A-line dress is a hugely flattering style for mums-to-be, as shown by True Blood and X-Men actress Anna Paquin, who stepped out in a pretty and summery A-line white lace dress recently. Not only is the A-line cut comfortable, as it is looser around the middle and top half of the body, but it’s also super-girly.
The peplum skirt is the ultimate way to dress a baby bump. It disguises a pregnant tummy whilst also helping to create a very feminine and curvy hourglass shape. Leading the way with this style is Kim Kardashian, who yet again managed to master maternity chic when she stepped out at a shop opening party in black lace top with a feathered peplum waist.
You might think that avoiding anything that is clingy is a good idea whilst you are pregnant, but clingy styles such as jersey dresses can actually be very flattering. There is no hiding your bump completely, so you should show it off in a form-fitting jersey dress. The big benefit to this style, as shown by Kourtney Kardashian on a recent shopping trip in a red and white striped jersey dress, is super comfort. The material is stretchy and soft, so is perfect for your maternity wardrobe.
