The Pregnancy period is a time where for many women, fashion goes flying out of the window. Comfort, ease and convenience take precedence and this can be easily achieved by investing in maternity specified clothes and dresses.

Many women are under the misconception that maternity clothing should be boring and unfashionable; at Olive and Peach, we don’t just focus on the comfortability but how beautiful whatever outfit you throw on makes you feel and look. We’ve got you covered as regards to looking chic and classy, go through our store and behold the lovely pieces we have available for you.  

A few clothing items every pregnant mama needs to own includes: 

  • Tights

Tights and leggings are the preferred clothing option for pregnant women. This is because of the stretchy fabric and comfortable fit. Pair them with empire cuts, long tops, semi-baggy t-shirts and well cut shirts and tops. Choose dark colours, which will give you the illusion of length and make your silhouette more slender. You can also choose brightly coloured tights in blue or pink for a bolder and more vivacious feel.

  • Tracks And Tees

While many would not refer to tracks and tees as fashionable, they are comfortable and can be easily worn as a daytime ensemble. Tracks and tees are great to wear especially if you are just lounging around.

If you do not want to look too frumpy, choose fitted tracks from good sportswear brands. The Lycra fits will hug your body without exerting pressure on your burgeoning belly. Choose tees in stretch fit fabric, which make you, look slim and accentuate those beautiful pregnant curves.

  • Maternity Bras

Now is the right time to invest in maternity bras. While they definitely do not exude refinement, they will give your humongous and sore breasts some much-needed relief.

Women grappling with breast tenderness must wear a good quality maternity bra that gives the breasts support. The maternity bra should ideally be worn from the second trimester and should be continued even after delivery when you are breast-feeding your child.

  • Maternity Jeans

Maternity jeans are a fashionable ensemble for women who want to still look good while being pregnant. The best part about maternity jeans is that they do not come with tight waistbands. Most of them come with stretchable flaps that fit snugly around the waist, which means that your comfort will not be compromised. You can wear these jeans with empire cut tops, blouses and long shirts.

  • Choose Cotton Over Other Fabrics

Cotton is a breathable material and will allow you to stay cool and comfortable. During pregnancy, the body temperature rises, making you feel exceptionally warm.

Avoid materials like synthetic nylon, silk and satin, as they will cause you to sweat and perspire. Cotton is your best bet during pregnancy.

  • Wrap Around Skirts/Dresses

Wrap dresses and skirts are the literal definition of comfort even to ladies who are not pregnant; they all free movement and allow you to customize how tightly knit or free you prefer. Choose bright floral prints and pair them with neutral colors.
