Maternity Clothes VS Regular Clothes – What’s the difference?

Its very tempting to buy a size or two larger in ‘regular’ clothes, or maybe even grab a men’s XL t-shirt. The problem is, you’re not just packing on pounds – you’re growing a baby. That XL men’s shirt, will be huge in the shoulders yet still tight in the midsection; the pants you bought will be too big in the leg and tight in the waist. Maternity clothes are designed to fit a pregnant body, they are created to move, grow and change with you in the weeks to come.

So what features make maternity clothes unique?

  • Extra fabric in all the right places – like your midsection and not your shoulders
  • Rouching along the sides so that bump can keep on poppin’
  • Cuts and styles that flatter and fit your changing shape
  • Soft breathable fabrics that keep you cool, comfortable and (hopefully) less sweaty
  • The kind of stretch that still fits you even when you retained ALL THE WATER in one day

I spend lots of time selecting styles and designs that will still fit and flatter you well after pregnancy. That stretch and ruching that grew with your beautiful bump, will also shrink with you. It’s unlikely you will hop back in to your pre-pregnancy clothes the week after baby. No one but you (maybe your partner) is going to know you are rocking those maternity clothes months after baby while your body settles and shifts back to normal… whatever normal is.
