Unlike older times, women are now embracing their pregnancy, instead of being self-conscious due to increased weight. The process of becoming a mother should not stop you from enjoying everything and anything you like, including working, dressing up, or applying makeup. Be it at work or at public places, it’s great to witness positive changes for and towards pregnant ladies. We believe these nine-months should be memorable and amazing for all the mothers-to-be, and while you do so, it’s best to be in style. While we know it can be hard to find maternity dresses, especially for plus size women, here are a few celebrity-approved options that can be easily available at most of the online stores.
The festive season is on and of course, you want to look your best. There are ladies, who like to show off their bellies, whereas others, prefer keeping it covered. The gown suits, that are available in multiple sizes, fittings, and designs can solve both the purposes. Ideal to sport at parties and festivities, invest in a piece that has fitted bodice and flared skirt. Go for small print and border-less ensemble, this will make you look smart and elegant. Nowadays, the gown suit with attached dupatta is garnering popularity. So, if you want to cover your belly, invest in this particular piece.
Plain Anarkali Suit
Anarkali Suits are a big hit among mothers-to-be because these are available in all the sizes and various designs. However, one must not go overboard when it comes to beading and sparkles. For a day event, opt subtle silk or cotton Anarkali set, whereas, for evening parties, you can go for tried and tested net pieces, but do mind the lining. A piece of synthetic fabric can end up making you feel sweaty and uncomfortable. Also, don’t go for heavy designs, it will make you look bigger. Invest in plain, solid colour Anarkali suit that has a cotton or light silk lining.
Layered Long Kurta
One of the smartest and most comfy pieces to wear during pregnancy is layered outfits. It helps you to feel confident and tackle wardrobe malfunctions that are common during pregnancy. If your breasts are leaking milk, then layered kurta, which comes with an additional coat can help you to hide it. Coming to the style segment, almost all the pregnant actresses, such as Kareena Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Mira Rajput, Genelia D'Souza, and Lara Dutta were seen exuding glamour in layered suits. Go for a pair that has a light colour kurta and a neutral jacket. Also, don’t forget to check if it has pockets, you definitely need them to keep your essentials.
During the first 13 weeks, that is the first trimester of your pregnancy and somewhere at the beginning of the second trimester, you want to wear something normal yet comfortable. An A-line kurta is exactly what you need! It is sleek, simple, and extremely relaxing. A knee-length A-line kurta with simple leggings or palazzo will look stunning. Buy embroidered or a plain piece, any design is likely to make heads turn.
In case, you feel like breaking the monotony, go with Indo-western pieces. Anything with a cold shoulder, breezy design, and comfortable fabric will not only make you look good but also make you feel amazing!
