Pregnancy Fashion - You Can Still Glitter

Feeling depressed about your growing belly? 

Many unattractive side effects of pregnancy cannot be avoided. But don't let it stop you from dressing up and feeling good. You can still wear the latest fashion trends, and even do it without buying new maternity clothes. One of my mama friends suggested buying regular clothes, except in a size larger. 

What a great suggestion!

During date night last Saturday, I decided to dazzle myself in glitter. I bought this shirt is a Medium instead of Small, and it fit my belly perfectly. Not only did it dress me up, it was comfy too.


A shirt that is one size bigger works wonderfully for the second trimester.

After baby, your body needs time to return to normal. During that time, you can still wear your "pregnancy" fashion.


See? You can still glitter, even if you are 22 weeks pregnant.

What other pregnancy fashion ideas do you suggest?

  46. You look so good! Buying a size up is a great tip. I haven't shopped for maternity clothes before, but from what I've seen in the store displays, their styles are always a bit plain.
