How maternity-nursing tops can solve maternity fashion blunders

During pregnancy our body undergoes the biggest change in the shortest time.
Some women embrace change and enjoy every moment, others avoid looking in the mirror.
Whether you belong to the first group or the second; physical changes force us to deal with a new “fashion reality”
which causes us to open our closets, review our wardrobe and consider maternity and nursing wear.

I meet many women from the early stages of pregnancy to the postpartum and breastfeeding period.
What they all have in common is a handful of tips. Here are a few I have learned from my experience:

Mistake # 1: not changing into maternity clothes in late stages of the pregnancy.

Your shirt buttons are working overtime and the seams on the sides of your pants are starting to stretch? It’s time to give your old clothes a little rest.
Your open zipper and elastic bands are not invisible. This is the time to accept the changes and invest in some good, practical and cute maternity tops.
If you can find clothes that can also cater you in the transition period after giving birth- win-win!

When your belly grows, the rest of your body looks smaller proportionally, and your dream of killer-thin legs seems completely realistic now.
Trouble is- those legs come with a big belly now.

Remember that you have the best accessory in town – a nice round belly – emphasize it, don’t hide it!

Solution: There is a big selection of cute maternity tops out there.
Try to find one that celebrates your bump but also one that you feel comfortable in. Looking good = feeling good!

Mistake # 2: Purchasing maternity dresses or tops without thinking ahead.

It is difficult to predict exactly how your body will change during the course of your pregnancy.
This could result in spending extra cash on items you will only be able to wear for a few weeks.

Solution: At first, try to buy only a couple of items you really feel you can’t do without.
In today’s market there are gorgeous items made from high quality materials and are composed of enough Lycra which are great to “grow” with you.
Furthermore, if you really want to get the most of the clothes you purchase: buy maternity nursing tops that can serve you well after birth with a discreet breastfeeding opening.

Pamper yourself with these maternity tops. You can also choose from this selection of cute maternity dresses which are suitable as nursing dresses as well.

Mistake # 3: thinking that fitted clothes are unflattering

In the first trimester it is easy to wear your regular clothes. In the later stages of pregnancy it is best to avoid choosing the wrong kind of maternity clothes that may make you appear dowdy.

Solution: Avoid choosing loose maternity clothes and choose clothes that fit your tummy area nicely – front and back!
If you are worried that people will think you just gained some weight – stroke your stomach in the most maternal way you can, this usually does the job!

Items with side roaching are the best maternity tops and are great as cute nursing tops too –
they conceal the tummy area, front and back, and make sure there is enough room for your growing belly.

Mistake # 4: keep wearing the same bra.

You’re going to notice all kinds of changes that happen to your body once you see these two stripes on your pregnancy test.
Usually the first major change is your growing breasts.
Most women will go up at least one cup size during pregnancy and after birth.

Solution: In order to determine the appropriate size for you, you should buy maternity/nursing bras, at least one using a personal fitting and avoid the pressure of your regular bra on your body.

Maternity/Nursing bras are far more beautiful and would give you the support and comfort you need. Try these: http://www.you-lingerie.com/collections/maternity-nursing-bras

Nursing tops that can make you look (and feel) fabulous

There are a lot of DO‘s and DON’Ts during pregnancy (DON’T eat Sushi, DO Drink plenty of water, DON’T (avoid) drink alcohol, DO get plenty of rest, you know what I am talking about).

Well, then you give birth and FINALLY you are able to do (almost) everything again. BUT (and there is a big BUT) you are not completely set free, there is a little someone who every once in a while (2 hours at best) requests you strip down and feed him. Exposing your tummy or boobs is not exactly your favorite part of the routine.

Maternity nursing tops – how can they help?

–       Find a flattering breastfeeding top that has the easiest opening access – I find that the best nursing tops are the ones that open beneath the breast-line as most breastfeeding bras open from top to bottom and work best with this opening.

–       Winter or summer, I am always in favor of a good nursing tank top. It can be dressed up or dressed down, wear them in hot weather or layer in winter. Post-pregnancy, especially the first few weeks, are in the baby’s warm environment (not to mention the hormones, oh dear, the hormones… I am sweating just from thinking about it).

–       I always say that being pregnant / a breastfeeding mother is a temporary state (no matter how long you wish to nurse your baby). Buy clothes that can serve you well and be a good return of investment: maternity nursing tops can be worn all through pregnancy and while nursing (and until you get your body back!).

–       There are fashionable nursing tops out there that will make you look (and feel) fabulous! Start with one or two and see if this is something that simplifies your routine (EXACTLY what you need right now)..

No more DO’s and DON’Ts: right now, anything that makes you feel good is probably definitely a DO.. so head on and google best nursing tops / nursing tank tops or maternity nursing tops – there are plenty to choose from!

♥Happy shopping!♥

The Problem – Wearing Dresses while Nursing.

Ask any mother – finding cute maternity wear is hard as it is. Finding cute nursing clothes is an even bigger challenge.
Challenging of all:  finding a practical, black nursing dress!

You would never really give it a thought until you are actually faced with such a situation:
You are strolling around the mall, dressed nicely, with your baby whom suddenly decided to demand his third breakfast today.
Now you have two options: lift your dress and show the world your undies OR squeeze your boob out of the top of the dress.

Well, which one will it be?

Before you were a mother, you loved throwing on a dress and flip flops and head out.
Now that heading out with a baby has become cumbersome, wearing a dress while nursing is an unrealistic dream – until now!

4 Key tips to dressing while pregnant – you can be a hip mama!

Image Transcript:

You’re thrilled about finally being pregnant, but you’re less than excited about the idea of leaving your hip clothes behind in favor of sweats and tent dresses.
With a few simple wardrobe twists, you can be a hip mana!

Here are a few tips on how to dress your bump and how to conceal your less favorite post partum areas:

Tip #1: Stick with the same things you usually wear.

if you wear a lot of black and that makes you fell confident and comfortable, then don’t start wearing pink just because your pregnant!
if you prefer colors, choose a favorite neutral color for your bottoms and build your wardrobe around them.

Tip #2: Form-fitting is flattering – especially with a cute maternity tops !

Today’s moms-to-be are showing their bellies and breasts in cloths that are miles away from the large, lose maternity wardrobe our mothers used to wear.
And for a good reason: Form-fitting is much more flattering then really loose-fitting.

If you just gave birth and you don’t fell as comfortable with your tummy, the trick is to look for slightly looser styles which come in just under the bust, allowing the fabric to float over your tummy and match them with a pair for slightly more fitting-tailored bottoms.

Tip #3: Look for Stretch Fabrics – Works Well with Maternity Dresses for Special Occasions

As you purchase the basics, look for stretch fabrics.
Dresses and other clothing in stretch fabrics will last through the entire pregnancy, since they do have the ability to stretch.

This will keep you from having to purchase new clothing every couple of months while you are pregnant.

all of our garments are made to fit you from early pregnancy and throughout nursing!

Tip #4: Layers are important for all types of maternity and nursing clothes

Your metabolic rate increases by about 20 percent when your pregnant, which means that if everyone else is shivering you’re just likely to be complaining about the heat.
Being in your baby’s environment means the temperatures are relatively high(er).
With layered look, you can peek clothes off as needed.
On cold days, wear a T-shirt under a long cardigan.

Don’t get carried away, though – too many layers or layers that are too loose and can look sloppy instead of sophisticated.

11 Things You Didn’t Know About Breastfeeding (thebump.com)

Did you know breast milk is sold on the Internet for approximately 262 times the price of oil? That’s just one of the (surprising!) facts we discovered.

1. Who needs the gym? The metabolic energy needed to breastfeed a baby each day is the amount you’d use to walk seven miles.

2. It’s not always easy to learn, but it _is _instinctual. Newborns held skin-to-skin in the first hour or two after birth may push their way toward mom’s breast and start feeding on their own.

3. Liquid gold. Human milk is sold on the Internet for $4 per ounce. That’s about 262 times the price of oil.

4. You’re probably a righty. Almost three-quarters of moms produce more milk with their right breast (and it has nothing to do with being right-handed).

5. Distinctive scent. Breastfed babies can practically pick their moms out of a lineup based on smell alone.

6. Know your nipple. Breast milk sprays out of many holes, not just one. The exact number varies from mom to mom.

7. Bigger isn’t necessarily better. The amount of breast milk a mom produces has nothing to do with her breast size.

8. Implants don’t impact. Most women with breast implants are still able to breastfeed.

9. A “breastfeeding high.” Nursing baby triggers the release of the hormone oxytocin, which relaxes you and baby both.

10. The ’60s sucked for nursing. US breastfeeding rates were lowest in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when only 20 to 25 percent of mothers breastfed.

11. Hang in there! In 2011, 74.6 percent of US babies were breastfed (ever), but by six months, only 14.8 percent were exclusively breastfed.
