So I’m on my third time around with this big belly(and thighs and arms and chins….but mostly that belly!) and am still finding fun and new ways to wear maternity clothes that feel comfortable and in a way that makes me feel confident and happy.
Obviously, styles have changed a lot over the last 7 years since I’ve been experiencing pregnancy. So the things that I wore when I was pregnant with Abigail, aren’t necessarily things I would wear today.
That being said, I feel like I’ve fairly honed in my pregnancy style (at least, the style that exists on the days when I’m not wearing Jim’s basketball shorts and old t-shirts) and my go-to maternity items.
So I thought it would be fun to share some of my finds with you!
This dress is one of my all time favorite Stitch Fix pieces EVER. I seriously could not love this dress more. I haven’t been able to find it anywhere online to link to….so I guess just sign up for Stitch Fix and request this dress :p
One of my very favorite maternity brands this time around has been Ingrid & Isabel. Seriously LOVING their stuff. This dress has been one of my favorites from even the earliest of bump days and it is still hanging in there!
Because, seriously, who wants to wear pants?
Dresses are great because they make you feel fancy and pulled together, when in reality, you just didn’t want to have to pair together an outfit. Also, breatheability. Ya feel me?
Oof. Summer pregnancy. Am I right?? This is the first time I have ever had to shop for maternity swimsuits and that’s just not cool, man. But! I found this swimsuit and have been really pleased with it. I also ordered a swimsuit from here and while I haven’t been photographed in it….yet…..I’m also really happy with it!
My last two pregnancies I did more with just fitted tops, but I’ve been feeling a little more self conscious this time around, so I’m enjoying pairing the fitted tops of yesteryear, with something flowy over it to help me feel like not every lump and bump is showing.
I’ve had this kimono for years, but I tried to link to some similar and fun top ideas!
Try as I might, I still can’t quit shorts. I know some people hate them, but for me, they’re easy and comfy and I’m glad to have a few great pairs in my weekly rotation. The ones in this picture also came from a Stitch Fix box, but I’ve found a few other pairs since that I love *almost* as much!
And lastly, comfy tees! Who could survive without them!?
So there you have it! Some of my favorite maternity finds 🙂
