Styling my bump

I would say my style is quite casual normally, and that is definitely what it’s been like throughout my pregnancy. Luckily I owned a lot of oversized jumpers before and the majority of my later stages of pregnancy has been throughout the colder months so I’ve made good use of baggy jumpers.

Jumper: Zara

Leggings: H&M

Jumper: New Look (Cant find it online, I got it in store a while ago) Here is a very similar one from H&M

Jeans: H&M

Jumper: Primark

Leggings: Boohoo

I’ve invested in a couple of pairs of good maternity leggings and some skinny maternity jeans from H&M. These are great for everyday or dressing up with heels and a t shirt or jumper, you still want to be comfy and I’ve found if I wear anything to tight or an item of clothing that doesn’t sit under my bump or cover it all, my baby doesn’t like it and kicks lots and I get Braxton Hicks and just spend the day or night in pain. I don’t know if that’s cause she doesn’t like the restriction? Hence why I’m in pajamas or lounge wear the second I get home.

Dress: I Saw It First

Another item I’ve been wearing lots are swing dresses. I got this one from In The Style and I absolutely love it, it’s so comfortable and not restricting at all. I’ve been wearing with tights (I know not everyone likes tights but it’s cold and I have compression stockings I have to wear so I need to cover them). Nice to pair with a gilet and biker boots.

Dress: New Look

Dress: Not the exact one but very similar here at Boohoo

Knee high boots and heels are great to wear with shorter dresses, and tend to be a lot more forgiving on your swollen feet than normal heels. I’ve been wearing knee high boots a lot if I go out for dinner or something.

Top: Asos

Skirt: I got this years ago from a boutique in Amsterdam, so here are some similar alternatives – Asos, Asos & H&M

High waisted skirts with a lot of stretch in them are great to cover your bump, paired with a long sleeved body or shirt. I found this outfit so comfy and flattering too.

I hope this has given you a little bit of inspo if you’re wondering how to casually style your bump without buying masses of maternity clothes.

Let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like me to post next.

Lots of love, Lucy x
