Choosing Maternity Tops

Every pregnant woman must choose maternity tops that fit her lifestyle or work demands.  The physical changes that occur during pregnancy require utmost consideration.  Here are some tips to help you choose good maternity tops.

Go Light and Loose
During pregnancy, a woman’s body tends to overheat even on a relatively cool temperature.  Opt for lightweight and loose blouses.  Many maternity shops sell blouses that are cool and comfortable.  Choose a fabric that allows air to come in.  Try not to wear anything dark, skimpy, or too clingy.

Choose Varied Styles
Maternity tops come in different styles and cuts: trapeze shapes, A-line cuts, and tunic length.  Wearing various maternity tops can make you appreciate your body despite the huge bump.  On cooler days, wear dark blouses with low necklines. (Yes! You can show off some cleavage there.)  On warmer days, choose light colored cotton blouses.

Dress to Impress Yourself
Do you want to appear slender while pregnant? Vests make you look slim and add vertical lines to an outfit.  If you wish to show off your body curves instead, choose empire-waist styles with high waistline.

Wear maternity tops with a collar that will accentuate your collarbones, like a scoop neck, boat, or V-neck.  Pairing these with a blazer will make your neck appear long and lean.

When choosing maternity tops, keep in mind the words “comfort” and “style”.  Doing so will make it easier for you to get the right kind of shirts and blouses during your pregnancy.
