Invest in a Bellaband
This stretchy tube of fabric is not a tube top, dear. This band is intended to smooth and keep pants from bunching when unbuttoned jeans or pants and/or offer more coverage for pants. (Here’s to no thong showing!) You can pick up a Bellaband at maternity retailers all over and they are quite inexpensive and really make your pre-pregnancy clothes stretch further!
Go for dark denim
The first thing to go out the proverbial window for most new moms is their jeans. Let’s face it: we wear jeans quite often and while the belly band can help stretch (literally) you further through your pregnancy, there will be a time that you have to break down and buy some maternity jeans.
Try a wrap dress
Wrap dresses are amazing because they minimize certain “trouble” spots AKA your growing bump and accentuate your assets. They can be dressed down or up and come in a variety of fabrics and prints. Added bonus? They're perfect for the warmer weather!
Shop for scarves, scarves and more scarves!
Pump up your essentials with a great accessory! Not only can a funky scarf draw attention away from your tummy, but also add some color and depth to your wardrobe. These can be paired with of your staple wardobe pieces to create a great outfit that will help get you through your first trimester without dreaded questions.
Get a comfortable pair of leggings that last
Leggings are like a wrap dress — you can dress them up or down. They are can be paired with a funky sweater or long tunic blouse and heels. Also, leggings are super versatile and come in different prints and colors too. So while you grab a pair of black ones, don't hesitate to pick up a pop of color or print! Remember to get a quality fabric that has some give and will grow with you.
