As a woman who has experienced pregnancy, I know only too well the changes that it brings to your body. Clearly the biggest change is to the stomach area and I remember looking forward to buying maternity trousers with the large elasticated and expandable section to fit over the bump. The first pair that I bought were so uncomfortable with a seam that pressed across where The Boy was lying. It took a while to find the right pair and these were from Vertbaudet. Once I found them, I bought another pair and they were my staple items throughout.
In this guest-post from Vertbaudet, they explain the importance of finding the right clothes to keep you comfortable, cool and fashionable during one of the most important phases of a pregnant woman's life.
Practical Maternity Clothes
During pregnancy, our bodies change shape and size in many ways. Of course we grow out, where our growing bump emerges gradually, but we also expand in other areas. Designers of maternity clothes know that women's bodies are different during pregnancy, and they adapt and shape them accordingly.
There is a huge amount of choice when it comes to maternity clothes, whether you seek smart professional wear for the office, fashionable and sophisticated dresses for special occasions or casual loose fitting garments for when you just want to collapse in a heap, they are all out there.
Vertbaudet offers online and catalogue shopping so you can browse from the comfort of your own home, something expectant mothers will appreciate.
An extensive maternity underwear department kits you out with all you need for pregnancy and beyond. Great value multi-packs of maternity knickers are available in pretty shorty and brief styles and ultra-convenient disposable knickers come in six packs. Breastfeeding bras, T-shirts and vests are available in a range of practical and attractive designs for the ultimate in convenient feeding. Leggings and tights designed specifically for the pregnant form team well with softly tailored tunics and T shirts for a casual and relaxed look.
Getting a good nights' sleep during and after pregnancy can become a bit of a nightmare, so it is best to do all you can to make yourself comfortable. Vertbaudet maternity nightwear features a range of 'before and after' pyjamas and nightdresses designed to offer comfort and fit in all the right places.
So, that's the practical side of things covered, how about maternity clothes that flatter and make us feel fabulous? Take a look at the fluid and softly tailored trouser, top and hooded cardigan sets at Vertbaudet, with elegance and comfort combined, and at a great price too. Thoughtful details such as adjustable straps on the vest tops and yoga trousers with wide knit waistbands make these sets in ultra-soft stretch Jersey and elastane hard to resist.
For summer fun, Vertbaudet has clever convertible dresses in colourful prints. These flexible dresses in pure cotton voile have a wide smocked band which can be worn at the chest or tummy, making it a dress or skirt. Two outfits in one!
For when the weather cools down, you will need a coat or jacket to keep you and your bump warm. Softly tailored blouson style maternity jackets with drawstring waists and back slits to accommodate a growing tummy offer a casual solution to outdoor wear. Alternatively, for a more tailored and classic look, try the flared wool cloth maternity coat with double-breasted detailing and inverted pleats. For something a little different, why not try a poncho? The unstructured design of the poncho lends itself beautifully to the pregnant form, and Vertbaudet offer a fine example in soft camel coloured wool/acrylic. Perfect for those Autumnal days.
