Pregnancy Dressing: Useful Tips for Your Body Type from Style Experts
Posted on

Don’t give up on looking stylish just because you’re pregnant. These days, you’ll find so many maternity outfits for all body types in Toronto—and you can conveniently shop for them online.

Some of the best retailers of maternity clothing in Toronto even offer free fashion advice so you can get clothes and dresses that will make you feel like a goddess all the way throughout your pregnancy.

Ready to start? Whether you’re curvy or petite, carrying high or low, we have some tips on taking the hassle out of dressing up your bump.

Curvy
More often than not, baby weight finds its way throughout the body—and you might feel like you're swelling everywhere, from your face to your limbs. You’re certainly not alone. And no—you don’t have to always dress in oversized sweats in attempts to hide your figure.
The key is to wear soft fabrics and think about creating longer lines. Try a soft knee-length knit dress that emphasizes your bump but is not constricting. Layer a long sweater over it-long enough to almost match the length of the dress. This is a great formula for looking lean and long.

Petite
A small-all-over body type will let you play with more pregnancy outfits. You can certainly pull off form-fitting maternity dresses with graphic prints. Put a moto jacket over it to give it some edge, and then finish off the look with comfy flats and a bright cross body bag as an accent piece.

Carrying low
Is your baby bump showing just above the hips? Then look for clothes that are soft on the waistline. Below-the-bump cuts will likely be the most comfortable for you. They’re also super cute.
You can’t go wrong with a sporty chic aesthetic that perfectly blends comfort and chicness. Invest in a good pair of soft-band, low-belly joggers—they’re just like sweatpants but tapered for that more polished look. Pair it with a loose tee and glam sandals. A jumpsuit can also be flattering.


Carrying high

Does your bump pop up and out? Make a visual separation between the bust and the bump using ties, high belts, and colour-block separates. Maxi dresses will also be super flattering, as well as high-waisted skirts in comfy materials that let you tuck in a fitted tank in a complementary colour. Cover up with a cardigan if the weather is a bit chilly.
