If this is your first baby, your bump will probably be pretty discreet during your first trimester, and so now is a good time to think about a few key pieces to base your wardrobe around as your body begins to change.
Morning sickness will often have you feeling worse for wear, your skin may be more sensitive than usual, and your hormones are going crazy… you deserve to feel comfortable!
Ditch anything that feels tight or restrictive, and instead invest in smart pieces to see you through pregnancy and beyond, such as luxurious jersey dresses, soft cashmere sweaters and hard-working maternity jeans that will grow with your bump.
This is also the time to buy some good quality maternity and nursing bras. As your breasts will grow during pregnancy – potentially up to three cup sizes – it's important to take advantage of regular bra fittings to ensure the best support for your changing shape. Whisper-soft fabrics that are comfortable against the skin, yet offer plenty of support without digging in will make a huge difference to your shape, posture and mood!
Don't forget to use plenty of rich moisturizer or body oil throughout your pregnancy to prevent itching and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
