Fashion VS Pregnancy? Not Anymore!

Sponsored post.

Although many shops on the high street have improved their maternity ranges in recent years, there's still room for improvement, particularly when it comes to cost. Being pregnant means your bump and your wardrobe needs to expand fast! With this in mind, the task of trying to find a half-fashionable outfit that fits from week-to-week can be a bit testing and expensive.
Here are a few tips and a couple of best buys to make your shopping experience a little bit easier:
Number one on the list of things to remember, is that the clothes you wear during pregnancy don't necessarily have to be maternity clothes. Plus size women's clothing often provides a cheaper, more fashionable alternative to buying from specialist maternity ranges and, as well as comfortably fitting your changing shape, plus-size clothing can often be more trend-driven than some mumsy maternity ranges.
If you are going to be blooming this spring or summer, try to embrace your growing tum but don't feel you need to sacrifice style to stay comfortable. Maxi dresses and boho skirts are old summer staples that can be bought in plus-sizes for really reasonable prices.
Of course, you'll also want to consider some post-pregnancy clothes too. Not everyone is like Amanda Holden, who seems to have snapped back into shape at a scarily rapid speed since giving birth to second child Hollie a few weeks ago, so remember that plus-sizes should allow you that little bit of freedom you need in the weeks after giving birth and can even be altered to shrink along with you.

  1. I loved Asos maternity wear when I was pregnant, although it's quite expensive. I hate having to fork out for clothes that I won't wear for long. What annoys me is all the affordable ranges are so old and boring, its as if these designers think only older women have babies. I was sick of seeing granny prints and shapeless cuts. I ended up living in maternity leggings and a tunic top from Matalans maternity range.

  2. Being 34 weeks at the moment i can totally relate. I originally planned on getting maternity clothes, but being petite and tiny winey before even they didnt really fit and the size up drowned me!! Without primark i think i would of worn my pjs in public to be honest. Currently living in leggings and long tops/jumpers.. paired with cardis and scarfs to complete the look. New look have the odd bits though & matalans gathered side basics are sooo comfy!

  3. I'm far from being pregnant but these tips will remain in my brain for the day I may be. (: It's a great tip buying plus sized clothing as then it can still be worn after but with a belt or tucked in. (:

  4. This is very helpful for those who are hearing the patter of tiny feet. I think when it comes to Maternity clothes, stores are very close minded.

  7. I liked ASOS and New Look for maternity wear! The only down side is they seem to charge quite a bit for maternity wear :(
