Once you find out that you're expecting, you may start thinking about maternity clothes. Women typically start needing to wear maternity clothes around the beginning of the second trimester, although you may need them earlier if you're carrying multiples or if this isn't your first baby. If your clothes start feeling tight but you aren't quite ready for maternity wear yet, a belly band will let you wear your regular clothes longer.
It's important to buy maternity clothes that are comfortable and that fit your lifestyle. If you work outside the home, you'll want clothes that are suitable for the workplace, which may include maternity dresses and skirts. If you exercise regularly, you'll probably want maternity activewear so that you can stay active during your pregnancy. If your social life takes you to formal events, you'll want some dressy clothes as well. Long, flowing evening gowns are often a good choice.
As you shop for maternity clothes, it's important not to forget about undergarments. Your bra size will probably increase, and you may be more comfortable in maternity panties as well. If you're planning to breastfeed, consider buying nursing bras while you're still pregnant. These are often made of a stretchy material that leaves room for growth, and having them now will make life easier once the baby comes.
At Walmart, you'll always find a great selection of maternity clothes at Every Day Low Prices. For more tips, check out our Maternity Clothes Buying Guide.
