Well Mamas, I’m three weeks out from having the babe who changed my life forever. Again. Again again. And as I’ve surfed the internet for fab fashion over the last few lazy, sleepless weeks, I’ve found myself drifting back to the maternity section. And then I realize, I will likely never have need of maternity gear again. Um <sob>, ever. Ev.er. And while I’m thrilled to see my feet, and glad to be able to clear out a third of my closet, I can’t help but feel a little wistful bidding adieu to my child bearing years and settling into my child rearing years.
While a good half of what I wear while pregnant is not maternity wear, there’s much to be said for the comfort of clothing specifically designed for pregnant moms-to-be–pants are a must and the extra length on tops helps keep the bump covered and cozy. And given what a long way maternity wear has come in the last few years, I no longer (and a little too late) find the prospect of wearing maternity clothing so shockingly abhorrent.
I love that colored denim, bodycon silhouettes and horizontal stripes have made their way so quickly into accessibly-priced collections. Here are five hot mama maternity outfits my wanderings turned up over the last few weeks. They make me wonder why I ever wasted a second worrying about the size of my bum whilst growing a human life and think hmmmm. . . I could do this again. Maybe.
Time flies too fast, Mamas! If only having sweet babes actually slowed it down.
