Unless you are carrying more than one child, it is likely that you won’t start showing until your second trimester. Once the second trimester rolls around, you’ll need to quickly rethink your wardrobe. If you are a planner, you might want to consider stocking your closet with the necessary maternity clothing that you’ll need throughout your pregnancy. However, you can also have fun by shopping for clothes as you need them so that you don’t get tired of looking at the same clothes in your closet for nine months. Maternity formal wear is one type of clothing that you may need to purchase on an as-needed basis as you are invited to events such as weddings.

There are many stores now offering formal maternity clothing, including Trendy Tummy Maternity dresses. However, as with any product, the quality of maternity clothing varies quite a bit. When you shop with a reputable source that specializes in maternity clothing, you can be sure that your purchases will be worth every dollar that you spend. Another benefit of shopping at a store that specializes in maternity clothing is that you’ll have a much wider selection to choose from.

Keep in mind that most sizes for maternity clothing will be based on your pre-pregnancy size. However, various brands of clothing will vary in how they are sized. Since your baby bump will grow over time, it is a good idea to go larger whenever you’re in doubt. That said, you don’t want your clothes to fit you like a tent. If you plan on wearing specific formal maternity wear items again and again throughout your pregnancy, choose clothing that will stretch with you as you grow. You will find many trendy maternity items that are made from quality materials that stretch and that you’ll be able to wear through several stages of your pregnancy.

Since you are likely to wear maternity clothing during different seasons of the year, be sure to buy layers of clothing. For example, a maternity sweater shawl is a fantastic accessory to have on hand for those months when the weather is unpredictable or for when you’re attending an event that goes well into the evening. Wearing layers is also important because your body temperature is much more likely to fluctuate when you are pregnant. With the ability to add on or take off layers, you can be sure that you will be both stylish and comfortable throughout any event.
