Buying an all new maternity wardrobe that will only suit you for a few months can be a real pain for a mum-to-be. But what if you could pick out styles that will suit you before, during and after your pregnancy? Here are our five essential outfits that you can wear now, through the ups and downs of your 9 months and for a long time after as a mum who wants to look and feel good!
The Batwing Dress is the ultimate bump friendly dress. Wear this style winter through summer, causal or dressed up and pre to post baby. The Batwing will take you from bump to baby in style! It features a wide V-neck and draped sleeves creating movement and shape that skims right over the belly. To get the best of your batwing during pregnancy, style with the Billini Camel and Rose Cuban Slides to ensure ultimate comfort as your body starts to change and the dreaded ankle swell kicks in. Our batwings are available in a variety of colours, fabrics and prints.
THE BAMBOO BOATNECK
A maternity must: a versatile dress that can be dressed up or down for a last-minute event that won’t feel like oversized maternity sack. Introducing the Navy Belle Boatneck Dress. The bamboo dress boasts a soft lustrous feel and is breathable and thermos regulating. The design hugs the baby bump and falls to a flattering swing silhouette. Pair with a medium length necklace to sit just above the bump to break up the outfit. You really can't go wrong with our casual dresses.
THE COLD SHOULDER
The cold shoulder dress is the perfect option for a summer pregnancy – battling the heat with a baby on the way can be tough. Feel cool with this effortless dress available in mustard florals and resort inspired black. The cold shoulder dress not only boasts lightweight fabric but the arm tie design creates a convenient and subtle option for breastfeeding mothers. Simply untie sleeve and pull aside for feeding access. Wear this dress with Bellini Tan Crete Slides to avoid discomfort from swollen ankles and a “fill it with everything” pom pom tote for all those mum and bub essentials. For a resort wear inspired take on the classic cold shoulder, use the Black Maxi Cold Shoulder Kaftan as a base and style with the Black Autumn Leaf Sandal and a stunning Seafolly Tote.
THE DRAPE TOP AND RUCHED SKIRT
Our Bamboo Ruched Skirt and Drape Top combination are a maternity match made in heaven. These everyday looks are great outfits for a ‘wear to work’ option pre and post baby. Our bamboo skirts are perfect for the working expectant mother featuring wide fabric waist bands that can be worn either below, on or above the belly. The bamboo fabrication is soft, breathable and easy to wear, providing ultimate comfort for mums to be. The Drape Top is available in a variety of colours including Musk, Red and Navy. This top has a perfect draped length covering your beautiful baby bump and flattering all the right places. The draped design of the top allows for an effortless easy access for breastfeeding mothers.
THE STRETCHY PANT AND TOP
Who said a growing bump means goodbye pants? For an everyday look perfect for conquering the “to-do list” invest in a pair of stretchy pants and a top long enough to cover the bump. The Indigo Marle Brussels Pants that are best worn bellow the belly but can also be worn above in the first and second trimester. The Navy Stripe Milan ¾ Sleeve Top is the perfect length to cover the bump through every step of your pregnancy. For a smart casual maternity look that will flatter your body at any trimester we suggest the Bamboo Softline Slouch Pant featuring a fold over waist line perfect for wearing either bellow, on or above the belly.
Top Tip: Invest in a leather crossbody handbag with a long adjustable strap perfect for draping over the pram for ease and convenience.
