Maternity Wardrobe Basics
The Cutest Bodycon Maternity Dress
This pretty little thing comes in multiple colors, patterns, ¾ sleeve and is soft, stretchy, and comfortable, along with breathable and lightweight. Show off that darling baby bump in this darling dress. Perfect for work, church, date night, babyshowers, etc.
Leggings, most likely a staple in any pregnant woman's closet. I pretty much wore leggings EVERY single day, because I didn't want to put jeans on. When comfort is priority, it's maternity leggings to the rescue.
Extra long layering tanks that stretch with the bump. The stretch is also perfect for pulling down for easy nursing access. They stay in place so no pulling and tugging to make sure everything is covered. Wear under any wardrobe item and you have the perfect layering tank.
T-Shirt Dress For All Months
The perfect t-shirt dress for all nine months and even after pregnancy. Soft, comes in multiple colors, and provides coverage all the way through month nine. Pair with leggings and rider boots and you will be the cutest pregnant mama around.
The Cutest Baseball Crew Neck Maternity T-Shirt
Comfortable, great fitting, flattering, stretches to accommodate growth, and provides the perfect amount of coverage. Once you buy it in one color you will love it that much that you will head back for additional colors. Comes in multiple colors, short sleeves, and styles such as cute Christmas and Halloween styles.
Basic Long Sleeve Top
The perfect basic long sleeve to wear with anything. Wear it under a blazer for work, dress it down with athletic leggings, pair it with a maxi skirt for church, or throw it on under a cardigan or jacket for date night. Stretches in order to provide room for that belly growth. Comes in multiple colors and darling Christmas and Halloween themes too!
Over the bump or under the bump? You choose. Maxi skirts are one of my favorite maternity wardrobe go-tos. They are so comfortable and accommodating for any month of pregnancy. Wear to work, to church, or out for date night.
These are absolutely perfect for when you just aren't ready to give up on your pre-pregnancy clothes yet! These will help in not having to spend a fortune on maternity clothes that will only get worn for a few months. Seamless, breathable, comfortable, and perfect for layering under clothes. You can still wear your pre-pregnancy shirts without having to worry about showing your belly to everyone. The silicone band around the bottom of the belly bands helps hold the belly band and your pants in place, so no adjusting and tugging constantly. I loved them for wearing over the waist of my pants when I couldn't get them buttoned anymore!
Ladies, you will not regret this purchase. It helps with chafing and keeping your legs from getting so sweaty. Wear this shape wear under dresses, skirts, or anything you desire. You will LOVE this as it will help smooth out your already gorgeous pregnant body.
Motherhood Maternity Undies
Soft, comfortable, and breathable! The fold over top is accommodating for the growing bump. These were my FAVORITE postpartum undies as they were extremely comfortable and secured the postpartum pad. C-section mama's even said these were the BEST underwear for afterwards, as they are comfortable on such a tender area.
Under The Belly Panties
The perfect undies for a growing belly and cut specifically for pregnant women. I wore my regular undies throughout ¾ of my pregnancy and finally decided to buy under the belly undies, and I wish I had bought them sooner! They are soft, comfortable, flattering, and no bunching or rolling down. Love, love, love them!
When your chest is growing, but you just aren't ready to give up your bras yet, use these extenders to provide you with that extra breathing room. A money saver as you won't have to buy a bigger bra every month you grow.
Support Belly Brace
Have lower back pain? This product will help keep that back pain at bay! Give your belly the extra support that it needs and keep the pelvis pain away!
Health and Pampering
Morning Sickness/Nausea Relief
I cannot say enough good things about these tummy drops! They were a complete LIFESAVER. I was constantly nauseated and these provided me with tremendous relief almost instantly. They work perfect for those nauseated car rides also! They come in a few different flavors as well.
Nourish your belly during and after pregnancy with this rich moisturizing belly butter. This butter is combined with Macadamia Nut Oil and Tamanu Oil to tone the skin and reduce the chance of stretch marks forming. Vitamins E and B5 promote skin elasticity which minimizes new stretch marks when the belly expands during pregnancy. It reduces redness and itching as well. I moisturized my belly, butt, and sides everyday and was lucky enough that I did not get stretch marks, but I also did not get very big either. Although, there are several other mama's who state they used this belly butter and did NOT get any stretch marks!
Thank goodness for this wedge! This little wedge was exactly what I needed during pregnancy to support my belly and back. I loved propping it against my back in order to stay comfortable as I am a back sleeper (which is not a recommended way to sleep when pregnant). It is comfortable, provides the support you need, and the best part it will help you get a good night's rest! This wedge is also versatile in that it can provide back support, baby bump support, or knee support. It can also be used postpartum to prop underneath the baby in the bassinet if they have reflux problems!
Alleviate swelling and aching with these compression socks.
Non Skid Socks
Skip the slip with these non skid socks. Throw these in your hospital bag for some darling socks that will remind you all the pain is worth it!
Memory Sponge Slippers
Another perfect item for the hospital bag. Wear them during the hospital stay as you know those hospital floors aren't the cleanest. For how much they cost, they can't be beat!
This will be your favorite piece for the hospital stay! Soft, comfy, lightweight, breathable, covers the behind, and allows easy access for breastfeeding.
