Maternity and nursing clothes are a must for most pregnant womane; but finding something that fits well, looks nice and makes us feel good, during pregnancy, sometimes feels akin with winning a mini jackpot on the lottery.
The struggle to locate that perfect dress, a comfy pair of maternity leggings or a well-fitting nursing bra is real ladies!
Dressing comfortably whilst still feeling attractive can be a tough call, but we at UK MumsTV have put together a little round up of our current favourites; to help you on your way.
Natal Active Leggings
Natal Active’s leggings are a firm favourite with pregnant women across the UK.
We road-tested a pair of their cycling shorts and our tester said that they felt incredibly comfy and supportive – whilst being incredibly stretchy!
The technical, fast wicking fabric is perfect for warmer temperatures and – best of all – these maternity cycling shorts have pockets!
Natal Active Nursing Sports Bras
As well as leading the (sports) field in pregnancy sports leggings, Natal’s range of nursing sports bras are second to none.
Buy your pre-pregnancy size and feel confident that the bra will fit with B–G cup sizing. But also feel safe in the knowledge that each breastfeeding sports bra comes with an additional bra extender should you need a wider band near the end of your pregnancy.
Lastly, the easy access clips make nursing easy and discreet. These are a winner in our book!
Milky Tee LOVE Breastfeeding T-shirt
Milky Tee’s breastfeeding LOVE slogan t-shirt (RRP £27.99) can be bought on its own or with the matching Little Love baby tee for a very cute mum and baby twinning set.
Their breastfeeding tops have hidden zips on each side, to allow easy access for breastfeeding or expressing.
Plus, their tops are designed to look like normal tees so can be worn even after you’ve finished breastfeeding.
Latched Pre & Postnatal Maternity Leggings
Offering light compression, Latched Pre and Postnatal maternity leggings adapt with your changing body, supporting you to stay active from early pregnancy into postnatal life.
Perfect for gym bunnies and lounge lizards, they’re so versatile, you can even dress them up with a smart shirt or tunic over the top.
Best of all, Latched leggings even include pockets and — let’s face it —everything feels so much better when it’s got pockets; even the humble legging.
Happiest Baby Everything Dress
The Everything Dress from Happiest Baby (£119) really is the must-have item for your pregnancy wardrobe and beyond.
Don’t be put off by the hefty price tag.
