There are a few really important things to consider when buying maternity or nursing clothes:
Comfort is king! It's amazing how grumpy we get when we're not comfortable. Being comfortable during pregnancy or while breastfeeding is the most important thing to consider and will be a hands down winner over style. Don't be fooled into buying non-maternity clothes as they're often not the right shape and won't stretch to accommodate your changing shape; they also won't shrink back as you lose your postnatal weight - they'll just be oversized clothes.
Be patient! Don't rush into buying loads of maternity clothes unitl you actually need them. You're the best person to judge when it's time and you're far more likely to select the correct size and fit. The 2nd trimester of your pregnancy [weeks 13-28] is the best time as this is when your bump will have made an appearance and you can buy items that you really need, that will last you for the remainder of your pregnancy and beyond; especially if you're planning on breastfeeding. Concentrate on your maternity underwear first and then work outwards; there's nothing worse than maternity bras and maternity knickers that pinch you in all the wrong places.
Look for similar styles and colours that you wore when you weren't pregnant. A lot of pregnant women want to hold on to their pre-pregnancy style. It's simple - if you like pink wear pink, if you like leggings wear maternity leggings, if you like flowers wear something with a flower print and if you love jeans wear maternity jeans. Despite what people may tell you, you really don't have to start wearing clothes that you wouldn't dream of wearing in a million years! If you want to show off your bump, don't be afraid to do it - just ignore what everyone else says and go for it!
Make sure you get properly measured so that you can order a wear a maternity or nursing bra that fits. Your breasts can change up to four times during your pregnancy so it's vital that you take the time to be fitted correctly.
Stick to your budget! You don't need to spend your inheritance. It's better to invest and treat yourself to a few quality items that will wash well, wear well, last and make you feel more comfortable and attractive. Remember to look in our maternity clothes sale for quality items that have been discounted by as much as 70%. Spreading your purchases out over your pregnancy will also ensure that you get the best possible fit when you need it most.
Wear the right material. Pregnancy can make your skin more sensitive than normal and your body temperature can fluctuate. It's best to choose natural fabrics such as cotton, cotton jersey and viscose as they let your skin breathe and are much cooler and more comfortable. These fabrics are often mixed with elastane for extra stretch.
We want you to enjoy your pregnancy, look good and feel comfortable. Global Maternity is a specialist online maternity clothes store which means we carry a much larger range than many high street shops.
