Tips: Picking What to Wear For Your Maternity Photo Shoot

In the previous article, we introduced some maternity photo shoot tips. We mentioned the “Wardrobe.” So what to wear for your maternity photo shoot is also very important. Probably the number one question you’re asking is “What should I wear?!” Maternity fashion is definitely a matter of personal taste and style, but there are still some looks and clothing that work better for photo shoot than others. Here are a some tips for you picking what to wear.

 

1. When in doubt, tighter is better.

Normally I advocate for the opposite while pregnant, but when it comes to maternity photos, we want to SEE THE BUMP. Not only that, but when you dress in form fitting clothes, you can pose in a number of ways, not just the cup-hand-under-belly pose.

2. Never underestimate the power of a skinny belt.

Once you really started showing, around 26 weeks, try wearing a skinny belt at the top of my bump almost every day. If you don’t want to invest in a lot of maternity clothes, you can get away with wearing your regular loose tops, belted above your belly. This look is super flattering because it cinches the thinnest part of your body.

3. Wedges are your best friend.

If you can rock a pair of heels while 9 months pregnant, more power to you. Wedges will make you look just as tall, and you’ll be a lot more comfortable during the 1-2 hours of shooting. Nude wedges are always a good choice with a shorter dress because they elongate your legs.

Tips: How to Dress Your Bump

We all know that you don’t need to give up your style during your pregnancy. But you still need some advice and tips that can help you easily embrace maternity fashion styles. Here are some style tips for you to dress up your baby bump.

1. Don’t be afraid to explore your style!

You have a chance to get a whole new wardrobe, so embrace it and take the opportunity to treat yourself to some new clothes that you may have never tried before.

2. Show off your bump.

Wearing form-fitting clothes shows that you’re a proud mom-to-be, and they’re flattering, too! Try side-ruched tops or wrap dresses that tie for some accentuation.

3. Horizontal stripes are actually flattering.

We’ have all heard that horizontal stripes make you look bigger, but the reality is that they actually have the opposite effect. When horizontal stripes are around the belly, they create a narrowing effect at the waist, actually making you look smaller!

4. Invest in a good pair of maternity jeans.

It might be hard to put your money in to pricier jeans for just nine months, but it’s worth it. Get just one or two pairs of good jeans that you can live in and will flatter your changing body. I like skinny jeans for maternity. Your legs are one of the smallest parts on your body when you’re pregnant, so skinny jeans show them off.

5. Don’t forget accessories.

Nothing completes an outfit better than the appropriate accessories. Adding a lightweight scarf to a simple tee and jeans spices up the outfit and gives you that put-together look. Many maternity lines have complementary accessories, so be sure to check them out.

The pregnant body is absolutely beautiful and you don’t have to hide your growing bump away. For pregnant fashion, there will be more dos and don’ts. Although there are many tips for you to choose your maternity clothing, you still need time to try them on. Luckily, there are more and more options for pregnant women to find their fashionable and trendy clothes.
