Debunking notions on Maternity Clothes
Having been in the maternity clothes space for close to 6 years now, with the single most objective & passion to dress pregnant women and new mommies during this phase in stylish comfort, at Mamacouture we can safely comment on some of the thoughts (ie read ‘misconceptions’) surrounding owning of maternity clothes, as incorrect.
Some common doubts faced by most about buying maternity clothes that we have heard:
- Don’t need them!
While you may get through the initial months of your pregnancy with your old pre-pregnancy clothes adjusted and readjusted, as the body approaches the last trimester, a realization dawns that those jeans & oversized tops don’t make the cut and are getting overly stuffy and uncomfortable.
So may as well purchase timely & enjoy the clothes for a longer duration while always staying comfortable.
- Will need a whole new wardrobe!
Every pre-pregnancy outfit doesn’t need a maternity version. Pick those maternity essential clothes & a couple of fancy outfits. Mix and Match them, accessorize and create your own bump style! You can refer to our piece on “Must Have’s in your Pregnancy Wardrobe” to get some ideas on how to get started.
- Won’t wear it again
Besides many maternity clothes come with nursing options, increasing their utility during your post delivery breastfeeding days. Maternity clothes are technically designed, expertly tailored & made in the softest stretchable fabrics to allow for the bump’s growth.
Pregnancy pieces designed by true maternity brands continue to drape gracefully even on a post pregnancy body without looking shapeless or oversized.
Having said this, the only reason maternity clothes won’t be worn again is they would have been over worn and it is possible you are dreadfully bored of the garment by the time you are 6months to a year postpartum 😊
- Maternity clothes are Ugly!
It’s obvious that those making this claim haven’t checked out the number of options that maternity wear brands offer for the pregnant and new moms. Most Indian maternity brands like Mamacouture offer wide range of options to choose from in style, comfort, occasion dressing, etc. while also keeping the pregnant mom comfortable. With so many pregnancy clothes brands in the market today, one can dress up just as chic and classy during pregnancy as they did before, without compromising on their preferred dressing style or comfort.
So if you are pregnant and are struggling with these thoughts, shed them and go shopping for some cute pregnancy wardrobe upgrade for yourself. It’s always fun to dress the bump and curate your very own pregnancy style.
