Top 5 Maternity Must-Haves


by For Two Fitness May 20, 2015

These are not your mother’s maternity clothes. The maternity industry has changed completely over the past few decades, enabling style-seeking pregnant women to continue their love affairs with fashion. While it’s easy to go overboard when buying maternity clothes, it’s also savvy to practice restraint. Why? Because when you’re bouncing bundle of joy arrives, you’ll want funds for stocking up on all those adorable baby clothes. So what’s a fashion-forward mama-to-be to do? Create the perfect pregnancy wardrobe with these top five maternity clothing must-haves.

1. Layering Tanks

While your bump is a thing of great beauty, there are times when you’ll want to keep it covered up. Maternity tanks with a touch of stretch are perfect for layering under tees and sweaters while hugging your killer curves.

Seek out styles in a variety of bold, bright hues as layering tanks are also the perfect way to add a pop of color to any ensemble.  Our Signature Racerback Tank comes in a ton of fun, bright colors.  They’re garment dyed which gives them a richness and depth of color that you won’t find anywhere else and they’re as soft as your favorite t-shirt.

2. Slip-On Flats

At some point, your growing belly will interfere with your ability to lace up and buckle on your pre-pregnancy footwear. Not to mention that because your center of balance changes during pregnancy, stilettos and sky-high high heels can be hazardous. Ballet flats and mules offer the perfect stylish solution.

If you’re ordering online, don’t forget that your feet may grow with pregnancy so be sure to get fitted before clicking “buy” in order to ensure you get the right size.

3. Maternity Yoga Pants

You can’t live without them when you’re not pregnant, so why would you live without them now? Available in a variety of styles and lengths, yoga pants don’t just come in handy at the gym, but are also stylish enough for everyday wear. Look for features like stretch, 3-way belly panels, and moisture-wicking fabric.

This one should be on the list twice, as multiple pairs of yoga maternity pants may well be in order. You’d be even happier to have them in the days after your baby arrives.

4. The Wrap Dress

Immortalized by the legendary Diane von Furstenberg, the iconic dress is perfect for accentuating your figure and works for nearly any occasion — from the office to Sunday brunch to special occasions. And because they have adjustable ties, wrap dresses can grow with you throughout your pregnancy.

Choose a soft jersey style for extra comfort and — even better! — no ironing.

5. Maternity Boot-Cut Jeans

If you go with only one style of jeans during your pregnancy, make it a bootleg pair in a flattering, on-trend dark wash. While styles that go under the belly may work best in the early months of your pregnancy, many women find over-the-belly panel styles to be most comfortable during the final pregnancy. Or look for practical convertible styles designed to grow with you throughout your pregnancy.

These five items add up to a great starting point for the closet of an elegant expectant mom. Do you have a favorite go-to maternity clothing item? If so, please share in the Comments below. And don’t forget to check out For Two Fitness’s complete line of bump-embracing maternity activewear.
