If you’re really itching to put that new bump in the spotlight, look for maternity styles that invite eyes to focus on your midsection. The dead giveaway: anything with a sash that ties above your belly. Snug, bump-hugging tops in bright colors or patterns are a surefire way to draw attention to your middle, too. Or, if you seriously want to shout it out, grab a silly graphic T with “baby on board,” “yes, I’m pregnant,” or “due in February” printed across the front. (It doesn’t get any more obvious than that!)
