Whether you’re not quite ready to announce your pregnancy or want to save money on buying strictly maternity pieces, we have put together the ultimate guide to bump-friendly fashion. From simple and sweet styles to fits that flatter and flaunt your bump, we have put together three different ways you can style maternity-friendly pieces from our collection.
3 Ways to Style Bump-Friendly Fashion
By investing in bump-friendly timeless fashions, you can wear these styles mid and post-pregnancy. Whether you’re planning a look for a special occasion or just want to refresh your basics, we have styling inspiration for your bump to suit every occasion here.
1. Keep it Cool and Casual
We know better than anyone that you want to feel comfortable but not frumpy when you're pregnant. So, what do you wear when it comes to shopping trips, lunch with friends or days out with the family?
At Style Cheat, our maternity-friendly collection isn’t just floaty dresses and tops, although they are cute!
Pregnancy doesn’t mean you can no longer express yourself through fashion, which is why we want to reintroduce you to the classic jumpsuit. This easy-to-wear and comfortable style gives the impression that you have put far more effort into your look when really all you need to do is choose a colour that best suits you, and you’re ready to go. Plus, jumpsuits look great all year round, paired with a cardigan in the Autumn season or dressed down with sandals and a sunhat in summer.
If you haven’t fallen in love with the idea of a jumpsuit, keep it classic with a comfortable yet stylish skirt. Another all-year-round staple, a wrap skirt from our maternity-friendly collection is a perfect choice for your growing bump. As you can tighten and loosen the wrap skirt to your preferences, you can look and feel amazing no matter what point of your pregnancy, as well as when the baby is here!
2. Dress it Up
A dress is a maternity staple. Simply throw it on and go. But if you’re trying to decide what silhouette looks amazing during and after pregnancy, here are our favourites.
For a simple and sweet look, you can’t go wrong with a smock dress. Designed to fit close to the body while adding enough extra material to grow as your bump does, a smock dress is deceiving in its flattery. In our collection, you can find a range of colours, styles and patterns that can be easily dressed up or down for various occasions.
Are you looking for something a little dressier? Choose a gorgeous wrap dress that promises comfort and style in a silhouette that will never fall out of fashion. We love wrap dresses as they can take you from day to night in an instant, so whether you have last-minute plans or an event that totally slipped your mind, you can look amazing and feel even better in a beautiful wrap-over dress.
3. Comfort is Key
Finally, we can’t forget that comfort is key during your pregnancy. But even on the days when you’re not leaving the house other than to run to an appointment or another errand, that doesn’t mean you can’t look cute.
Recently, loungewear has become a fashion choice in its own right, and pregnant women are rocking the effortlessly put-together look. After all, you need to make the most of that radiant pregnancy glow!
Our range of maternity-friendly loungewear is not to be missed, and we are sure you will find some style staples here to take you through pregnancy and beyond. So even when the baby is here, you’re recovering post-pregnancy all the way to chasing around after toddlers, you will be just as in love with these loungewear staples as you were the first time you wore them. And they’ll look just as good, bump or no bump.
We love oversized cardigans and jumpers paired with joggers, leggings and jeans for an easy throw-on look you can style up or down. Simply throw your hair up in a crocodile clip for an on-trend style, and add a necklace and boots for a more dressed-up look.
Alternatively, keep it loose and comfy with slippers for a day at home. With these lightweight, oversized fits, you can enjoy a jumper that fits your bump comfortably without leaving you with an ill-fitting top that droops over the stomach once you are post-pregnancy.
Cultivating your Maternity Wardrobe
We hope that our quick guide to bump-friendly fashion has given you tips, ideas and inspiration for what to wear during your pregnancy without breaking the bank. Of course, maternity clothing may sometimes feel like the only option, but don’t make the mistake of ditching your current wardrobe for pieces you won’t or cannot wear in a year’s time.
