We’ve introduced how to dress up your baby bump for the first trimester. As we mentioned before, there are different maternity clothes that fit different trimesters. Therefore, the challenges you face for the second trimester will be different from those for the first trimester. In this article, we would like to share some fashion tips of what to dress for your second trimester.
The challenge: You feel like every few weeks you’re a new size and don’t want to blow your budget on new clothes every month.
What to do: Invest in a few items that will grow with you. Look for pieces that have details like ruching, tie-backs, buttons or gathering at the sides, and wraps, which will all let you adjust your clothing as your body grows and changes. What’s more, they will let you flatteringly flaunt your bump, which usually pops out during this time.
The challenge: Your boobs are busting out all over.
What to do: If you haven’t already, now’s the time to invest in a few great bras. While you may choose to go for bigger sizes of your favorite bra, you might want to consider the comfort and expand ability of maternity or nursing bras.
Most women find that not only do their cups runneth over, but their band size will grow too. Besides moving up a band size or two, you can also find inexpensive bra extenders at most lingerie stores.
The challenge: You need a few workhorse items that will go from work to weekend without sacrificing comfort.
What to do: Embrace the wrap dress. Or rather, let the wrap dress – in a sleek solid color or a color-blocked pattern – embrace your curves. You’ll look perfectly pulled together for the office and be comfortable and stylish for running weekend errands. As your bump gets bigger and higher, simply change where you place the tie, eventually making the frock into an Empire-waisted garment, giving much-needed definition between bosom and belly.
There is another faithful item you can choose: a pair of dark denim maternity jeans with stretchy waist band. The cut and color will flatter you during your whole pregnancy period. Besides, it’s suitable for almost every social and work situation.
