During my third trimester and to cope with the summer heat, I know I have to rely less on hiding behind layers but having my large bump on show in dresses and loose fitting separates. From my experience, it’s a lot easier to just pull something out of your wardrobe which is catered for pregnancy and not try to work with only 5% of your existing wardrobe and it not being the best fit – i.e. like when your midi skirt becomes a mini skirt or your t-shirts become stretched out crop tops!
I’ve been lucky to trial a new Perth based maternity label called ‘Expect in Style’. The label is the vision of Leanne and Laura who are both are friends, mothers and entrepreneurial women with a passion to create a collection of stylish and affordable maternity wear for today’s busy mum. Their philosophy is to provide quality and comfort without compromising on style.
Their collection is centred around fashion wardrobe basics (think stripes and grey marle) designed to take you from day to night or from the workplace to a relaxed catch-up with friends. They have sourced beautiful soft fabrics which are also easy to care for and also versatile to wear after pregnancy. I’ve been very impressed with the quality I also love that I’m supporting a local small business too.
