Around your third to forth month your jeans might start getting just a little bit too tight. Your in that awkward stage where your normal every day clothes are uncomfortable to squeeze into but your too small for maternity jeans. Well Yoga pants might just be your answer!

Yoga pants has became a trend setter for a lot of women, especially pregnant. These are complete stretch pants so you don’t have to worry about sucking in your stomach just to button your pants. There are actually different styles of yoga pants such as capri cut, fold overs and long wear. They are usually available in different colors as well to match whatever shirt or shoes you chose to wear with. This has become one of my favorite pieces of clothing in my second trimester because of the comfort and I don’t look too dressed down still.

I recommend looking at Victoria Secret because their selection is so wide in colors, fits and styles. They go for anywhere around $19-$49. This might save your second trimester wardrobe!!

Belly Bands

Remember those favorite jeans you have been waiting to fit back into? Yes the Rock and Republic’s that are somewhere in the bottom of your drawers with all your other pre-pregnancy clothes. A little thing called “waistband expanders” is a maternity must have accessory that you can actually wear with your old favorite jeans even if you are 7 months along.  This is a stretchy material that goes along the waist of your jeans, usually like a belt, to expand the waist size of your jeans to fit how ever much you have grown. Most brands will offer different colors and styles to go with what ever top you are wearing too. Some will have an extra piece of material that you actually put in between your zippers to hide the space it is expanding. A few different brands to look into is Ingrid and Isabel and Baby Be Mine.

Isabella Oliver – Duo Collection

For a lot of women, finding clothes to fit your new body that actually makes you feel good is hard to find. You want to look just as trendy, stylish and confident as you did when you were 6 sizes smaller. Isabella Oliver might have just saved the day! They are a designer clothing line for chic women and now are very well known for their maternity wear. You don’t want to spend hundreds on one outfit you are probably going to grow out of in the next month or two. Isabella Oliver has came out with a Duo Collection that is highly fashionable but also REVERSIBLE! When you really like a certain tank top or dress that just fits you really good, usually you would want to buy it in more than one color. With the Duo Collection, you have two different selections for colors. You will not only save twice the amount of money but you will still be wearing designer clothing that shows your off your baby bump too! The Isabella Oliver Duo Collection can start anywhere from $130-$225. My favorite piece of clothing is the Duo Swing Dress that comes in a light pink on one side and dark pink on another. I think this would be perfect for the baby shower!
