I don’t know if you’ve noticed but there seems to have been a bit of a baby boom going on in Hollywood over the last few years. Every time you turn around another beautiful and fashionable celebrity is announcing that they are expecting. What does this have to do with us regular folks? Well, a lot when it comes to what we wear during our own pregnancies. Suddenly maternity wear has become maternity fashion. Maternity clothing has become cool, fashionable, and dare I saw even a little sexy.
Gone are the days of hiding your growing belly behind a tent like shirt complete with “cute” patterns and little bows. It used to be that our options were very limited when it came to maternity wear. Apparently designers of maternity wear seemed to think that a woman lost all sense of style and desire to look pretty as soon as her belly out grew her regular clothing. Fortunately today things are very different.
Thanks to the influence of celebrity moms and a demand by the rest of us for our maternity wear to be fashionable and pretty. Designers have created maternity fashion that is just that, fashion. Today you can find maternity wear that is comfortable, beautiful, and trendy.
There are now so many options when it comes to maternity clothing. You can still, of course, find maternity clothing at department stores like JCPenney, and Target. But it doesn’t stop there. Retailers like The Gap and Old Navy now offer a maternity clothing line along with retailers like Mimi Maternity and Motherhood Maternity who carry maternity wear exclusively. The options are endless.
I am comforted in knowing I can still wear my beloved khakis and perfect T’s, care of the Gap, when I’m pregnant.
