During the 9 months of pregnancy, many would-be
mothers keep repeating the same mistakes over and
again. Here is a survival checklist for all first-time
mothers so that your pregnancy wardrobe is stylish and
comfortable without pinching your wallet. While
shopping for your pregnancy dresses, ensure that you
keep this checklist handy.
All pregnancy dresses should be made from soft
materials which are natural. Avoid man-made materials
like the plague. The material should be almost cotton,
preferably 90% and yet it should have some percent of
lycra – not more than 10% – so that it gives a little
stretch during the months when the tummy balloons and
flab appears all over the body.
Check the lining of the clothes you buy. It should not
irritate the skin and select colors that are soothing
to the eye. Opt for hues like cream, off-white, navy,
beige, black (just for its slimming effect), and of
course, pure white.
Baby pinks, light shades of blue, pastel colors are
also choices with which you look good during these
Most would-be mothers make the classic mistake of
« making do » with their old clothes. They keep wearing
their old clothes till it literally falls apart at the
seams. Avoid this at all costs.
Do spend a bit of money and try to spruce up your
appearance during the pregnancy months. Not only will
you look good, you will also feel good about yourself
if you have a good selection of pregnancy dresses.
