The vast majority of my maternity wardrobe seems to be in varying shades of black. This wasn’t the case last time but I sold anything that wasn’t breast-feeding friendly pretty much as we were moving house and I wanted to get rid of it! However I quite like black, it’s easy to accessorise and can all go in the same washing load!
This is one of my current favourite outfits, even if it’s a bit pattern-tastic!
- Jeans: H&M Mama around £19.99 from memory
- Top: Asos Maternity £8 in the sale
- Cardigan: F&F (bought for £6 in last years sale!)
The jeans are the only pair I own with an over the bump waistline, and I find they dig in less around my bladder area so I’m more comfortable in them than the under-the-bump styles. They’re also made of a super soft to the touch material, and have a ridged detailed around the knees that annoyingly doesn’t really show up in the photos.
The top, although not strictly breastfeeding friendly will still look great post-baby and be baggy enough for me to wear a vest top underneath to be able to feed comfortably. I think the two sizes of stripes adds a bit of uniqueness too, plus the pattern is the same on the reverse, and horizontal stripes are fine when you’ve got a big bump I reckon!
The cardigan although not maternity is baggy and comfy and often find to wear as a coat for little trips, though annoyingly no pockets! These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago at 28 weeks.
