I’ve had the opportunity to pick a few of my favourite items from the New Look Maternity clothes range and these are the pieces I chose to take my growing bump from Winter to Spring. Before I got pregnant, I always imagined what I would look like once my bump started growing and if I would ever find flattering maternity clothes to suit my body type and shape. I can’t say shopping for maternity clothes has been a walk in the park, but I’ve managed to find a handful of pieces that fit me nicely, without breaking the bank.
For my first outfit I chose a stripy blue top with a pair of under-the-bump denim shorts, which I think will be perfect to wear on my upcoming Easter holiday – the weather is meant to be quite a bit warmer in the UK! The top is stretchy around the bump, so I’ve got plenty of room to grow these last 8 weeks of my pregnancy, and the shorts are quite comfortable with a soft elastic band at the front.
The second outfit features this super cute ‘Best Dressed Bump’ white t-shirt and these over-the-bump green check leggings – quite casual and comfy, which is exactly what I need right now! I’m obsessed with this top and I really need to get enough wear out of it whilst it fits – I can just about get it over and under the bump. The leggings are plenty big enough and will suit me fine until the end of my pregnancy.
For warmth, I chose this khaki green padded coat with a faux fur hood and contrasting black sleeves. The coat has a detachable panel at the front and fastening toggles on the inside, so it can easily accommodate a growing bump; you can also detach the fur trim and the hood if you wish. I’m quite petite (5 ft), so even the size small was a bit too big and long on me, so bear that in mind if you’re thinking of buying this coat.
I’m very pleased with the items I got from New Look Maternity and I can’t wait to wear them on my Easter holiday next weekend; hopefully the weather will be nice! If you’re looking for some affordable maternity basics – leggings, jeans, shorts, t-shirts, jumpers, nursing bras, dresses – definitely check out New Look.
