Dos:

  • If you are shopping when you are in 5-6 month of pregnancy, buy clothes one size larger as usually belly enlarges in/after 7 month.
  • Pregnancy makes your boobs bigger and fuller. Indulge in a little cleavage show-off with sexy décolleté tops.
  • If you find your buttoned jean pants constricting, opt for harem, Palazzo or dhoti pants. Buy elasticated jeans, they look really cool.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothes during pregnancy. Skirts and long dresses are roomy and look incredibly sexy too.

Keep in mind what not to wear during pregnancy.

Don’ts:

  • Don’t buy tight clothes especially around the belly. Give yourself some room to breathe.
  • Don’t buy short/cropped tops which give frequent peep-shows of your belly. Believe me, it doesn’t look as good as it should. .
  • Some women instead of buying maternity wear opt for over-sized clothes. What they don’t realise is though the over-sized clothes give them ample room around the tummy, they are loose and sag at other places, for instance shoulders. Never do that unless you want to look like you have borrowed clothes from your very large cousin.
  • What shoes to wear during pregnancy? Whatever you do, just don’t wear high heels or stiletto heels. IWear sturdy sandals or shoes that have a little heel or sensible wedge heels or platform heels. Go for buckled sandals as they provide extra security and comfort while walking.
