Most moms-to-be can get away with wearing their office regular pants until week 20, especially with the help of a maternity belt band that can provide an easy fix for bottoms that don’t quite fit right. Somewhere around this stage of pregnancy, though, it’s best to start switching to maternity pants for the office. They’re actually very good investments; many moms continue wearing them postpartum.
What to look for in office maternity pants
It might be tempting to wear maternity leggings to work, but don’t do it. They will look too sloppy for the office. You need something dressier. The good news is that there is a wide range of proper maternity pants for work. Here are three things to keep in mind when shopping for them:
- The waistband is one of the most important things to consider. Stretchy waistbands that go under the belly are best for the earlier months of pregnancy. Stretchy full-panel waistbands that go all the way over the bump are typically best if you want a more secure fit when your belly grows bigger.
- When it comes to color, you can’t go wrong with the basics: black, brown, and gray. They will go a long way in your maternity and postpartum closet. Want a pop of color? Use accessories and brighter tops with to spice up your daily attire.
- Finally, you might want machine-washable pants if you don’t have the time and the energy for anything too delicate.
