It seems that I am having to dig out my maternity wear a lot sooner this time around as my bump is rapidly expanding. As I didn’t have any summer maternity wear last time around New Look were kind enough to send me some pieces from their current range.
I chose a tea dress, as I wear a lot of them normally, and a pregnancy staple – a pair of over-the-bump jeans. I also chose something I wouldn’t normally wear – a kimono – as it seems everyone but me is wearing one right now!
Of all the items, the Navy Broderie Panel Tea Dress (pictured above) was my favourite. The fabric is very soft and the cut of the dress sits nicely on my curves – it managed to feel floaty and light, without making me feel like I was wearing a tent. The dress costs £22.99 and is also available in white.
The jeans were comfy and had good stretch for the bump but – like many pairs of jeans I’ve had before – they tended to lose a little of their shape between washes. They were still the best ones I have tried though. New Look do a variety of different styles and types of denim and their range is well worth a look. The faded jeans
I chose cost £22.99.
offered me a welcome break from simply slinging on a cardigan, and definitely made me feel a lot more chic – even when I teamed it with jeans, ballet pumps and a plain top. You don’t necessarily need a maternity version, but I found that having a bit of extra room works well with this style of cover-up. It also made me feel a tiny bit fashionable, something which has previously escaped me in pregnancy! It is currently in the sale, priced at £16.09.
