Starting around week 13, I remember scouring the internet for the “most flattering maternity dresses” out there. As you can guess, I was searching for a while. Although the options ARE better than they used to be (so I’m told), its still a bit of a challenge finding outfits that are both flattering AND comfortable with your growing bump.
I pretty much avoided anything “maternity” until the third trimester (other than jeans, I swear by these through the whole pregnancy). I basically just concentrated on finding items in my closet that were either loose + flowy or “body contour” pieces that basically just fit around the shape of your body whether you have a baby bump of not.
I do recommend following these tips to save money, however, if you are someone who grows a big baby/you start showing sooner than I did- you may need to consider investing in some maternity pieces sooner than later.
