I often find myself missing my pregnancy body. I know! It’s CRAZY that I am saying that, especially since I was NOT loving my 1st trimester or 3rd trimester to say the least. But when it came to my pregnancy shape, I really truly loved it. I embraced my new found curves and loved dressing up my bump with maternity and non-maternity clothes!
This Non Maternity Dress
Today’s post is about this dress that I wore when I was pregnant and can still wear now! It’s not a maternity dress, but I found that it worked perfectly with my big belly. It’s so fun to compare these two photos. I’m wearing the same dress (in different colors obvi – I loved it so much that I had to get it in two colors) but it looks great on my two very different body types. What I love about this dress is it is something pregnant woman can buy knowing that they will still be able to wear it post baby. Or a non -pregnant woman can buy, knowing she will be able to wear it if she does get pregnant!
But You’ll Need Maternity Clothes…Trust Me
Let’s face it, maternity clothes are expensive, so it definitely makes sense to buy some non-maternity clothes that work with a big belly so you can wear them for years to come! But trust me, you WILL need some maternity clothes. Like leggings and tanks. Regular clothes just wont cut it when you are 39 weeks pregnant and you feel like your as big as a house. Ha! I remember those days like they were yesterday!
And the great thing about this dress for me? I can wear it when I get pregnant again. That’s right my friends. There will be a baby number 2. Not quite yet. But I see another pregnancy in my future – in the next year or so. So crazy to think about!
