Maternity Fashion at 22 weeks

These photographs were taken when I was at 22 weeks pregnant. I am now at 27 weeks plus 6 days and wow has my bump grown since! Still I wanted to share these images as they are the first I have taken with my baby bump.

Fashion can be challenging when you’re pregnant, not because there aren’t maternity clothes out there but because I don’t want to buy a lot of clothes that I will only wear for a short time. With a baby on the way, I have much more important things to be saving my money for!

Investigate your closet

I had a look through my wardrobe for clothes that weren’t a great fit before, due to them being too big. I wanted to make use of any baggy clothes that I could whilst I could still fit into them! Some of my trousers had a zip down the side, allowing me to wear them that extra bit longer! These are now out of the question as I am much too big, but they were useful for a period of time.

Hand me downs

Lucky enough my Mum gave me a few tops and cardigans that I could wear for a while. When she can’t find clothes in her size, she tends to buy them in a larger size with the intention of getting them altered. Well she had a few that she hadn’t altered and they were nice, so she let me borrow them! The top that I am wearing is one of them.

Consider the season

It is heading into winder, which means baggy jumpers. Even if they are not quite as baggy as they were before, they still work for now. It doesn’t hurt to get a few new jumpers either, as you can get away with wearing them again as a baggy jumper! With the cold weather approaching, I felt it was important to purchase some thick maternity tights and a maternity coat since my other coats no longer close!

When you are pregnant, you are going to have to buy a few new clothes. I decided to limit my purchases to the things I need rather than go on a shopping spree. I didn’t want to get a whole new wardrobe, but knew I had to get some essentials. You need to be comfortable when you are growing a little human!

Please do share any tips that you may have and your shopping recommendation for maternity clothes! I would also like to find out what the must haves are for a new mum to have?
