Soft, over the belly leggings 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! 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.
Take it easy, lounge in comfort and style. For the chillier Winter months, choose soft, jersey pjs that you can use after pregnancy too. Don't forget to pack your nursing nightwear into your hospital bag!
