The secret is finally out… Baby is coming!
Your second trimester is the time to really settle in and start enjoying your pregnancy – you deserve it!
The awful morning sickness is hopefully a thing of the past by now, and you may even find that you get a nice boost of positive energy – perfect for getting on top of your pre-baby prep.
Every pregnancy is different, but it’s often at this stage that the bump will really start to show.
Here are our top 5 tips for dressing a baby bump in the second trimester…
1 - RUCHE IT
This trimester is likely the time when you’ll see the most dramatic changes to your figure. Many women go from barely showing at the start to beautifully blooming by week 27, so it’s a good idea to invest in some stylish maternity clothes designed to grow with you.
Chic ruched maternity dresses in soft stretchy fabrics are the perfect choice for this trimester. And a collection of long ruched maternity tops will make an invaluable addition to your closet. The fitted styles will accent your bump and allow plenty of room to grow.
2 - SUPPORT IT
If you haven’t already, now is the perfect time to invest in some good quality maternity bras – the sooner you make the switch the better. All of our maternity bras offer a super flexible fit and easy access for nursing. With the right support and a fully adjustable fit you’ll look and feel like a new woman!
3 - SHIFT IT
Shift maternity dresses are a second trimester mamma’s secret weapon! They’re comfy, stylish and ultra-versatile, and the clever design makes it more flattering as you grow. Perfect for work, play and casual days at home, you’ll live in your shift dresses.
4 - JEANS IT
Forget diamonds, maternity jeans are a girls best friend. These will be your maternity NBFs. The soft fold-over belly band is super comfy - worn over or under your pregnant tummy and the slight stretch denim fabric is generous enough to make them a wardrobe staple even when you feel as though you’re about to pop. Every maternity wardrobe needs these slim fit jeans.
5 - PASH IT
These elegant breastfeeding, poncho-style pashes are so much more useful than a cardigan and more trendy than a scarf, for wear during and after pregnancy. You also have your hands free to sip tea or answer your mobile without worrying about a scarf slipping and exposing you whilst breastfeeding. The breathable light knit fabric makes it perfect for summer or for layering in between seasons. Don't start breastfeeding without one.
