Maternity Wardrobe Essentials

When you’re pregnant the last thing you want to worry about is your wardrobe. Read these 3 maternity clothing essentials from Julia Dzafic of Lemon Stripes.

Dressing for my growing body has certainly been a challenge over the last eight months, but I’ve figured out how to wear things in a way that are both comfortable and flattering.

There are three main maternity wardrobe essentials that I simply cannot live without!

  1. Maternity tank top: I wear these under cardigans, blazers, and sweaters. They hold everything in and will be quite useful.
  2. A loose, snap front blouse: I love this blouse because I can throw it on over a tank and some leggings and it looks chic. It, too, will be great because of the snap front closure.
  3. An easy-to-throw-on dress: Some days, the thought of pulling on pants or shorts is just too much! It gets harder as each day goes by. Having a few easy dresses that I can throw on has made all the difference.

With pregnancy brain and a growing stomach that seems to catch every crumb, I find that I spill more often, which is probably good practice for when I have the baby and she’s constantly getting food on my favorite pieces of clothing.

The StainSoak™ option on my Electrolux washer has been a lifesaver, and will become an even bigger part of my routine once the baby arrives. It eliminates the need to pre-treat stained clothes by premixing water, detergent, and stain remover before the wash starts to create a powerful yet gentle clean. This feature has been a game changer!
