Still managing to stretch my pre-maternity wardrobe at 15 weeks. Still marveling at how I can play up or (sort of) conceal the bump based on the fabrication and cut--stretchy empire waisted jersey dresses scream maternity, vs. structured sheath and flowy blouse and pencil skirt which help minimize the bump. I look like I'm about to go into labor in 1/2 but barely pregnant in 3/4 (although the side view is a different story--can't completely hide it anymore). Still rejoicing that I can actually still fit into these sheaths and pencil skirts! I just wear the pencil skirt a little higher on the waist and it skims over the bump. The dress and skirt are both structured, but just stretchy enough to give me room to breathe.
Now I am finally appreciating that I was an apple pre-pregnancy, because my apple-flattering pieces are really working overtime! I like the stretchy dresses too, when I'm in flaunt the bump mode. And I'm hoping I can still wear them in 3rd trimester when the sheaths and pencil skirts have fallen by the wayside. I may have to wear them with leggings if they become too short, but I think they'll last for a while.
One unintended bonus--it's kind of fun that even though these dresses are "old" and I've posted them here several times before, now I can wear and post these over and over and each time it'll be new and "fresh" because of the growing belly. My bump accessory, LOL!
I'm glad I still fit into these clothes for now. It's easy to look like me and still feel fab when I'm still wearing my post-YLF clothes. The challenge will be when I have to pull out my old maternity clothes, whether I can find a way to still feel fab enough or whether I'll feel dated. I'm trying to put that dilemma off as long as possible!
