Pregnant & pretty, today’s mom to be

Back in the days, perception was that pregnancy is the time in a woman’s life that she becomes and feels less sexy, but now, with the high fashion taking its toll those days have become history.

Being pregnant nowadays doesn’t mean you can’t keep up with the trends and feel fashionable. Maternity clothing used to be shapeless and frumpy simple because people felt that they were not supposed to show their bumps or wear clothes that are too tight as it was believed to suffocate the baby. 

Now, thanks to the advent of stretch fabrics and low rise styles, jeans can be as much of a sexy staple during pregnancy. But, careful ladies, you do not want to sacrifice comfort for appearances. According to Jody Kozlow Gardner, co-author of Pregnancy Chic: The Fashion Survival Guide (Villard), the key to dressing modern and sexy during pregnancy is to pick out the trends you like and adapt them to your new body.

Doctor Victoria Lozhkarova of Family Wellness Clinic in Francistown says that there isn’t enough data to say women can wear this or that. The Doctors say that stretchy pants such as tights, jeggings and dresses are completely healthy. “Women wear tight things but there really is no problem, even when we check them they are ok,” Lozhkarova told Style. She went further to say that it is fortunate that these days some pants are tailored specially for pregnant women. 

Natasha Kamakama who recently gave birth to a bouncing baby boy says that it is important that a pregnant woman buys outfits that make her look sexy and accentuate her best features. Kamakama cautioned that soft, rich fabrics with lots of stretch are the best to go with during pregnancy.

The young lady also says that clothes that dig into one’s body or restrict one’s movement in any way are to be avoided. However she said that colour is an essential part of a pregnant woman’s wardrobe.“Do not limit yourself to black and neutral tones, add some colour to give your outfit that pop glow,” she added.
