With the Spring season upon us, Moody Mamas Inc. co-founders, Elise Rosemarin and Marta Abrams were kind enough to put some fashion tips for pregnacy and post-partum, exclusively for Child Mode readers!
1. It’s all in the Details!
Gone are the days when the giant flower pins rule, a la Sarah Jessica Parker in the 90’s. Spring 2010 is about subtle femininity. Whether it is with ruffles, floral rosettes or box pleats, look for subtle details that will make your outfit “pop”. Pregnant/ Post- Partum shopper beware- if you are going to wear a ruffle, make sure that the ruffle is on a bias because if it is crossing your belly horizontally, it will make your belly appear wider.
2. Is she or isn’t she?
Don’t make people have to ask. The best way to make it clear that you are pregnant and not just drinking too much beer is to get tops and dresses that separate the bust from the belly. Side shirring, rouching, and empire waists, are all ways that you can help you make this distinction! If you are post-partum and have an “after baby bump”, look for pretty maxi dresses and boho loose fitting tops to make you feel like a summer goddess and will help conceal the belly.
3. Ten Hut!
Military fashion is everywhere! No need to don an army uniform, just go for special touches that signify “military”. Whether you are pregnant or post partum, this look can be achieved with details like pleats on the shoulder or by choosing colors like green or navy.
4. Be Loud and Proud!
Bold colors are in this season and don’t be afraid of them! Both pregnant and post-partum ladies look great in color so dare to buy that dress in fuschia or yellow- not only you will you look great, but you will be adding an element of fun to your wardrobe! However, if you are nursing, be careful and wear a good bra with no leak boob pads so you can feel confident post feeding.
5. Shirts and Shorts and Dresses oh my!
No matter what you decide to wear, remember that your belly will change the shape of it whether you are pregnant or in the healing stages post partum. Therefore, wearing old pieces from your closet might be an economical choice but it might not be the fashionable choice. If opting to wear non-maternity wear and are pregnant, look for shirts that are longer in length, dresses that feature rouching on the sides or have an empire bustline,shorts or pants that have a long drawstring. The tricky thing about non-maternity dresses and shirts is that they tend to hike up in the front because of the belly- so it will look shorter in the front and longer in the back.
If you are healing and are post-partum, try to emphasize the parts that you are feeling better about- could be your legs, your arms from lifting the baby, or when in doubt show off your fabulous “two-somes”. No matter what, just remember to feng shui your outfit and look for balance!
