    Maternity Fashion: How to Dress in Style in Each Trimester of Your Pregnancy?

    Updated on 3 August 2023

    Choosing what to wear during each trimester is a task in itself, but the basic thumb rule that all women should follow during their entire pregnancy is that comfort and safety triumph over every other concern. Never compromise safety for style. But that doesn't mean you cannot ace maternity fashion.

    Let this article be your guide to maternity fashion and learn the different ways in which you can be stylish and comfortable in each trimester of your pregnancy.

    Maternity Fashion in the First trimester

    While some people like to announce their pregnancy as soon as they find out, the majority wait it out till the second trimester. In the first trimester of pregnancy, the main challenge is to dress normally in everyday life and keep the good news under wraps. A good sense of maternity fashion can help you do exactly that!

    In the first trimester, you will gain a couple of kilos and it will look like you have been eating too many desserts and not growing an entire human being.

    • To hide these kilos the best alternative is to dress in loose-fitting clothes- wrap dresses or kaftans, especially dark-coloured dresses are a good choice.
    • You can also opt for cosy maternity leggings to keep you comfortable and pair them with oversized shirts or loose kurtas.
    • It's easy to just wear something from your normal closet as a maternity wardrobe is not yet required.
    • To flaunt some maternity fashion, you can also pair a camisole with a jacket or a blazer.

    Maternity Fashion in the Second trimester

    Arriving into your second trimester, you are starting to show a cute bump and now look pregnant. It's easy to get carried away in this excitement and blow your budget up over maternity fashion but investing in a few maternity essentials will do the trick.

    1. Maternity leggings

    Maternity leggings are comfortable, good for many occasions, and can be paired with almost anything, from kurtas to tops.

    2. Pregnancy Belly Band

    A pregnancy belly belt is designed to support the lower back and abdomen during pregnancy and are a good buy for active mothers.

    3. Maternity jeans

    Just like leggings, maternity jeans are comfortable and suitable for a wide range of occasions and will help you stay on top of your maternity fashion.

    4. Large T-shirts/ Tops

    Oversized and baggy tops will easily accommodate your entire upper body and more importantly your bump. Cheap and tough these are perfect for wearing at home.

    5. Wrap dresses

    They provide good freedom of movement and one of the best parts is that you can adjust the ties and the dress will accommodate your belly. Ace maternity fashion by wearing kaftan dresses or maxi dresses that really look trendy.

    6. Maternity bras and undies

    Maternity bras are extremely soft, provide plenty of support, and have room to stretch and adjust easily. And a good pair of maternity panties will help protect your intimate area from any infection, itching or discomfort.

    Maternity Fashion in the Third Trimester

    As you progress into the third trimester you realize that your cute bump has transformed into a watermelon. Things that you bought in the second trimester of pregnancy are what you will be wearing full-time now.

    • Leggings, large T-shirts and wrap dresses are your best and most comfortable bets for everyday wear.
    • At this stage, your feet will almost ache continuously so investing in comfortable footwear and putting away the heels is a good idea.
    • You can also pair vibrant midi dresses, that allow room to grow but also look stylish, with a comfortable pair of sneakers for day outs.
    • Sleep will become a challenge so invest in some comfortable maternity sleepwear. Sleepwear that allows breastfeeding once the baby is born is also a good idea.

    So, momma-to-be, with these tips, tricks and maternity essentials, there's literally nothing stopping you from acing maternity fashion in your pregnancy.
