First piece of pregnancy fashion advice; shut out all the noise around you about not buying maternity clothes or going overboard with maternity looks because you “will only be in the clothes for nine months.” We say you deserve to feel good about yourself every single day of those nine months, whether that means you’re going to be in sweatpants and an old T-shirt or putting on a full face of makeup and flaunting your bump.
Part of feeling good about yourself might be your clothes, and we don’t blame you. The best maternity jeans can go a long way for a confidence boost. And here’s the biggest secret of all, most mamas are in their maternity jeans for awhile after pregnancy and that is 100% okay and normal! That being said, you should find a pair (or 3) that you totally love.
