Second Trimester Essentials

Phew! It’s finally time to bid morning sickness farewell, and your growing bump will now be more prominent than before, giving you the perfect opportunity to embrace your changing shape with some form-fitting dresses to flatter your new curves.

This may be the last time you’ll feel like wearing heels for a while, so opt for lower-heeled styles that keep you well-balanced and avoid too much pressure, and therefore swelling, on your feet.

When it comes to fuss-free dressing, shirt dresses are an easy way to nail a smart-casual look, and there’s a style out there for every shape!

Cinched-in waists will also help to balance your shape, while wrap dresses are flattering on everyone. Look for A-line or I-line shaped styles to accommodate your growing bump while keeping the neckline work-appropriate.

Mayarya’s Top Tips:

Now is the perfect time to start your baby name list… as it may take a while for you and your partner to agree! Consider booking a maternity photoshoot, for some sweet mementoes of your growing bump.


Your Second Trimester Shopping Checklist

  • If you haven’t already splashed out, we’ll say it again: soft over- or under-belly leggings are a real saviour from the second trimester onwards and a great alternative to pants!
  • Invest in smart and comfortable maternity workwear to keep your mind on the job. Pants with elasticated waist panels will grow with your bump and can be used post-pregnancy, too.
  • Add a cosy cardigan to layer over your outfit and keep you warm on colder days… or in the air-con!
  • For casual weekends, opt for a pair of joggers or shorts. Choose from either a discreet, stretchy elastic waistband, or an over-the-bump panel, which also offers plenty of extra support.
  • A belly band extends the wear of your usual trousers while keeping things comfortable. As you enter third trimester, your bump will feel lower and heavier than ever – smart supportwear gives you the extra support you need.
