SECOND TRIMESTER - 4-6 months checklist


Your growing bump will become more prominent and hopefully any morning sickness would have subsided. This is the time to embrace your changing shape, form-fitting dresses will flatter your pregnancy curves. Style with a little heel while your feet can still handle the pressure. Longline shirts are easy, fuss-free flattering options for all shapes and sizes. For larger busts, opt for V neck detail with gathered empire bust. The cinched-in waist will help balance your shape. A scoop neckline ruched tee is another good option for both smaller and larger busts. The fitted ruching detail will flatter your growing bump while the neckline remains modest.

Soft, over the belly leggings can be a saviour from the second trimester and beyond and are a great alternative to pants as they start to become uncomfortable - pair them with a casual boxy top for off-duty chic. For the office, invest in maternity work pants designed with elasticated waist band panels that can grow with your bump too. Wearing your pre-pregnancy pants with button extenders isn't too appealing and screams discomfort! A belly band can help keep those pre-pregnancy pants held up. If you prefer to wear jeans or shorts, Mayarya offer comfortable and stylish options with discreet, stretchy elastic waistbands or over the belly panels which offer extra support for your bump. It's well worth investing in bottoms designed for maternity - they will be your go-to maternity pieces through each pregnancy stage and post-partum too when your body is still changing.
