It’s a truth universally acknowledged by pregnant women everywhere that finding ‘good’ maternity clothes you can still wear after said baby has arrived are hard to come by.
But never fear, mums-to-be, because the ever-stylish and second time pregnant lady, Zoe Foster Blake, has shared her go-to “preggo fashion” items and it’s safe to say they’re bang on.
On Instagram, the former beauty editor and founder of Go-To Skincare wrote, “I didn’t wear overalls last pregnancy and I feel like such a friggen dunce. They’re the best! I live in them! Waistbands can suck a doz!”
The 36-year-old accompanied her caption with a photo of herself in a cute-as pair of blue denim overalls.
I didn’t wear overalls last pregnancy and I feel like such a friggen dunce. They’re the best! I live in them! Waistbands can suck a doz! Because A) I always want recommendations and therefore assume everyone else does, and B) maternity attire, generally speaking, sucks, here’s some other preggo clothing I thrash: ????????Active Truth tights (over the bump, with thick, flattering fabric. Bought in first tri and they’re growing happily with me. Nice maternity active wear is impossible to find: why? Come on Lulu/Nike et al – preggos exercise too ????????Bendon crop top – the classic not-super-flattering-but-very-comfy-crop top (I tried the CK one to be cool but it cut in and pissed me off) and Bonds maternity bras ????????Bras N Things Lucile Bralette because the last thing I want is a padded bra. And all wire-free bras are padded. Why? Bought one in each colour ????????Seed denim (the elastic waist ones but in a size up, they’re are a good ankle-skimming length and skinny shape, and also the drop crotch soft denim ones) and also Ripe Maternity denim, the black skinny leg ones ????????Overalls – mine are Hatch x Current Elliot, which I bought online with some other Hatch stuff that I’m yet to wear, in honesty ????????ASOS maternity and ZARA for basic tees and little cheapie fun smock dresses ????????Bassike tees and soft cotton pants ????????Kookai for stretchy tight dresses – cotton for summersies; wool for wintersies – great as a skirt over tights, or with heels HA HA AS IF, on toast etc etc ???????? Horrible dressing gown from the fiery depths of hell ✋️Bah! That’ll do. Worth noting only a couple of these are dedicated maternity items. Hey, maternity fashion, be better! (You too, wedding shoes. You were AWFUL.)
