Maternity Dresses for the Modern Women

Aug 17, 2007
Days have gone when women used to wear shapeless clothes during nine months pregnancy. Today's modern, working super women want to look attractive even with their bulging waistline. The traditional "big maternity clothes" make women look even bigger than their actual size. But now so many new outfits have come in the market for those golden days. The good news is that you can find many online maternity fashion shops that offer quality maternity merchandises at affordable price.

Some guidelines you need to know before shopping for maternity dresses:

Avoid shopping maternity clothes in a hurry because you may order to pack wrong dress that looks attractive but later on you realize that you have wasted your money on this.

Your maternity clothes should provide extra room, especially to your bust and belly. Stretchable fabrics are the best.

You should purchase one or two bra for each trimester because for every trimester the size of the bust will change as it tends to grow.

Maternity clothes should absorb moisture to help pregnant women stay cool in the summer.

You should feel comfortable enough in your clothing, so that it may not cause itching in your belly. Itching may result in pregnancy marks afterwards.

You should choose garments that open easily for breastfeeding.

Women who had Caesarean delivery should wear loose clothes over the scar area until it settles down.

Ask your local lingerie specialist for maternity advice on bras. Never neglect this area because supporting your figure at this stage will help you to maintain a better shape after delivery.

When to start wearing maternity dresses: Your belly starts coming out from fourth month of pregnancy. So you can start wearing from second trimester of your pregnancy till delivery.

What to wear during Maternity period: Maternity clothes can be expensive so purchase just a few maternity dresses that you can mix and match. Wearing maternity jeans for everyday help makes you feel more normal and like everyone else. Pick jeans that have adjustable waistbands for your growing waistline. You can buy some long skirts with expandable waists and few maternity tops that can be used for breastfeeding the baby. Denim, the popular and an affordable brand of jeans offers maternity over and under bump jeans and skirts. Over bump maternity jeans with side zip fastening and elasticated waist band adjusts comfortably on your bump with the additional benefit of buttonhole elastic, which allows you to adjust the fit as your bump grows. You can also try jeans from places like Serfontaine, Earnest Sewn, J & Company and Habitual jeans.

Affordable maternity wear: Everybody can not afford expensive maternity clothes. Ultimately you have to wear these clothes for few months only and spending much on your garments does not seem worth. A baby brings so much responsibility and extra expenses for you. The good news is that many online shops offer discounts on their maternity wear.

Max maternity outfits: It is not hard to find plus size maternity cloths. Ebay also lists plus size maternity clothes for sale.

Sexy and stylish maternity wears: It would be wrong to say pregnant women can't look sexy. Nowadays market is full of fashionable, trendy and stylish maternity dresses. Stylish dresses gives confidence that pregnant woman needs in her daily routine. The elegant maternity clothes includes floor length gowns to short knee length dresses, baby doll dresses, kimono dresses, strapless dresses, halter neck dresses, wrap dresses and wedding gowns too.

Maternity wear designers: Most often it is seen that pregnant ladies cut down their social life because they do not have enough outfits to suit an occasion. Thanks to Internet where plenty of online shops are available that offers designer maternity outfits. You can get dresses from world famous designers like Dorothy Perkins, Japanese Weekend Maternity, Olian Maternity Topshop, Emma Jane, Duet Designs, Tummi, Due and Sprout and Japanese Weekend etc. These maternity fashion designers are anticipative and attentive to the pregnant woman's every maternity clothing need and desire. Don't compromise with fashion. You can wear all the clothes like jeans, pants, tops and bottoms that you used to wear when you were not pregnant.
