I’ve been resisting buying maternity wear except for shorts & jeans because the belly bands they come with are just too comfy to miss out on, especially with an increase appetite these days.
So instead I’ve been loading up on cotton flare tops, drapy dresses, pretty flat shoes & skinny legging with belly bands that can last me for at least the next few months and post pregnancy. I figured that in my current state & size, since my body can’t fully appreciate maternity cuts just yet till the belly grows outwards for another 4 months, I might as well dress up as much as I want. 🙂
I absolutely adore shopping during this phase. You can basically get away with wearing anything without being conscious of that jiggly tummy you’ve always had while wearing fitting tops (you can pass it off as part of the belly and no one will know) AND you can get away with empire-cuts & baby dolls without needing to explain that you’re not pregnant.
Mm. See where I’m coming from?
