So..Jumpsuits..I’m going to have to reveal a secret here. When I don’t know what to wear, how to pair a top and a bottom or simply that day nothing matches, fits, looks good or makes me feel good, there’s a 99% chance I’ll reach for a jumpsuit and call it a day whether pregnant or not.
Do you have days like that? Days in which you end up with a pile of clothing either on your bed or on the floor because you just don’t know what to wear? While I don’t feel this way very often because I try to stick to a mom uniform most of the time, being pregnant has made wearing anything a challenge. I have to change a few times before leaving the house and if time gets in the way I just simply don’t look in the mirror and run outside with a big pair of sunglasses because I just don’t feel good in anything. HORMONES!
A jumpsuit is that perfect piece of clothing that doesn’t need more than a few personal touches for anybody to look good. It literally avoids the headache of styling tops and bottoms and is great for growing bumps. So for those days that you need to look good and can’t or don’t want to reach for your loungewear, a jumpsuit is just a great alternative. Now you know what went on a day that I’m wearing a jumpsuit. Either I have a pile of clothing on my bed or I became smarter and replaced all my clothes for jumpsuits.
This day I had my SIL’s baby shower and I had no idea what to wear. I felt horrible in everything, however this red jumpsuit help me embrace my waist and bump in a beautiful way and I felt really good. There were times I even forgot I was pregnant.
TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN BUYING A JUMPSUIT
I know there are amazing maternity jumpsuits, however I’m not a fan of buying a lot of maternity clothing. I practically bought none with my first and I don’t think I will this time around. Maybe just a pair of maternity jeans and leggings because of the winter. For now in this early months I’ve been trying the non-maternity ones I already have that fit my bump and it actually has been both easy and comfortable.
- Jumpsuits fitted at the waist are great to make legs longer and off course to show off a waist. They fit perfectly during the first weeks of pregnancy.
2. Dropped waist jumpsuits usually fall on your hips, which makes the torso look longer so it’s great to hide the belly. They are also great for when the belly gets bigger and something fitted at the waist is no longer possible. Size up for the last months of pregnancy.
3. For everyday wear shoot for jersey jumpsuits. Most of my jumpsuits are more casual and versatile so I can actually replace my jeans or yoga pants for a day at the park with my son.
