Recommendations according to pregnancy body type
There are four pregnancy body types and they are determined by the manner of carrying your baby: big all over, carrying high, carrying low and small all over.
Big all over
If you are big all over it is obvious you should create an illusion of a slimmer figure. So, the aforementioned advice of dressing in one colour from head to toe is a fantastic idea. And choose darker colours like black or navy blue. Find a blouse with jewelled detailing so you can draw attention from the bump. Elongate your figure with dark pants and a long cardigan.
If the most protruding part of your bump is near your bust, it means you are carrying high. So, your goal is to separate your bump and the bust. In order to do that, a good advice is to wear colour blocking blouses and dresses. In addition, try wearing a cross-over dress. Another way of visually separating the bump and the bust is to wear a belt.
If the most protruding part of the bump is closer to the pelvis, you are carrying low. In this case you want to rebalance the whole figure by accentuating your bust. A V-neck is an effective way to do this. This time of your life is the perfect timing for wearing big scarves and large necklaces.
Small all over
In this case, you can accentuate your bump as much as you want. In addition, you are among lucky pregnant women who can wear prints and horizontal stripes.
As you can see, you do not have to wear baggy clothes during your pregnancy. Embrace what you have and be a fabulous mom-to-be.
