When a woman gets pregnant, she soon thinks she will have to buy a new wardrobe, with pieces that can accommodate her belly. However, some clothes that she already has in her closet can be used during pregnancy and others, bought to use with her belly, can be used later.
All the pieces that pregnant women have from before pregnancy can be used during the gestational period, as long as their modeling is taken into account. For the image consultant, Juliene Teixeira, the important thing is that the pregnant woman is comfortable in the first place.
“Very tight clothes can be undesirable in these circumstances”, explains the consultant so that clothes that are too small from before pregnancy are avoided. “In the first few months, before the belly starts to grow, some pieces can adapt, yes.”
Already those pieces that the pregnant woman buys exclusively to use in the months when the belly gets bigger, at the end of the pregnancy, can be adapted to use later, when she loses the belly. “Small adjustments, made by an expert seamstress, can transform a piece. You have to take into account if it’s worth it and if the piece will be perfect. Otherwise, it is better to donate them to whoever will use them”, says Juliene.
The 10 pieces you can wear both during pregnancy and after.
Consultant Juliene made a list of ten pieces that can be used during and after pregnancy and that you probably already have in your closet even before you get pregnant. These pieces are great because they accommodate the belly and leave the woman with a lot of style.
1. Leggings pants
Leggings are already a classic in any pregnant woman’s wardrobe. Due to its elasticity and comfort, the piece looks great even when the belly is quite large. Leggings are also easily worn after pregnancy. Today, the piece no longer looks like a gym and features a variety of styles and models.
Pantalona is another comfortable pants that can be used during pregnancy and after belly fat. By having very wide legs, it ends up not getting in the way when they swell during the gestational period. In addition, the pantalona is very stylish and looks great on any woman.
Surely the gown is always a great ally for pregnant women. Due to its ample modeling on the belly, it is possible to use it throughout pregnancy. Some models still value the silhouette by being tighter in the chest and loose from there. The gown is also easily incorporated into the wardrobe for after pregnancy, as its modeling does not influence the size of the belly.
4. Knitted blouse
Knitted blouses are basic and help when creating combinations. For pregnant women, the fabric is ideal for when the belly grows. After pregnancy, the piece can be used on a daily basis, creating great looks with more striking pieces.
5. Wide dress
Dresses in general are perfect for the gestational moment, as they do not create obstacles when the belly gets bigger. If the modeling is ample, even better, as it will easily serve you during the nine months of pregnancy. After the belly, the dress can be worn with a belt to define the silhouette of the woman.
6. Long skirt
The long skirt in addition to being stylish, is also a piece that can be used during and after pregnancy. With the belly, just adjust the skirt a little lower. Because it has elastic at the waist, it doesn’t get in the way and doesn’t make the pregnant woman uncomfortable. After pregnancy, all you have to do is incorporate the piece into your looks.
The cardigan is a piece that every wardrobe should have. In addition to being possible to use it during and after pregnancy, it is great for those days of indefinite weather. When the belly is big, use it open.
To enhance any look, the blazer is the ideal piece. During pregnancy, like the cardigan, wear it open. Colorful blazers help any look look more stylish. At the end of pregnancy, the blazer is another piece that goes back to being used normally.
The jacket follows the same idea as the two items above. It can be used both during pregnancy and after, without any adaptation. Because it is basic, it goes well with any style and looks good on any woman.
10. Miscellaneous accessories
Nothing better than a powerful accessory to make any woman more beautiful. Without any influence on the size of the belly, they can be used before, during and after pregnancy. Maxi necklace, colorful earrings and various rings are great to spice up the look.

Valuable tips every pregnant woman needs to know
For the consultant Juliene, the very comfortable pants are a joker in the wardrobe of pregnant women. “Given that the legs can be swollen and the woman will not always want to show them off during this period, pants are a good option.”
Some pieces can be bought for the moment of pregnancy, which helps when getting dressed. Today, there are many options of stores that offer clothes for pregnant women with a lot of style. “During the gestational period, a party may arise and the pregnant woman may invest in a more fitted dress and a heel, for example.” Wrap dress, loose knit blouse with a modern feel and pantaloons are pieces that women can buy during pregnancy.
It is also important to always take into account the style of the pregnant woman. “The important thing is to maintain your identity, abusing creativity, not forgetting to value your strengths, use colors in your looks and not dispense with accessories. Comfortable modeling and natural fabrics are my tip”, guides Juliene.

look with dress
Long dress is super comfortable, values the silhouette of the pregnant woman and leaves the look very feminine. Bet on the jacket to complement the look and bag and shoes to emphasize your style.
Look with leggings and gown
With the leggings and the gown, the look is the face of the pregnant woman. To make it more stylish, choose colorful leggings and a very charming coat. Take the opportunity to also use a powerful accessory, such as the necklace, and a bootie to make the look more current.
To make getting dressed easier, the pregnant woman can rearrange her wardrobe to better visualize it in front of the pieces she will wear during pregnancy. “The idea is to remove from view everything that is not being used during this period and leave visible only the appropriate pieces for your routine”, advises the consultant.
The little jacket that was forgotten can come back to the surface and be used with the wide dress, to help define the silhouette. “Professional help can be useful, in order to choose what is really worth keeping in the wardrobe. The important thing is not to let pieces accumulate that will no longer be used, molding inside the closet”, points out Juliene.
Pieces with spandex and stretch are great for the gestational period, as they accommodate the belly. It is also important to note that each pregnant woman has her biotype and, therefore, a certain piece will best fit a physical type. “The tip is not to run away from your style, keep your personality. Elaborating in productions is the watchword. Staying feminine, transmitting joy, has everything to do with this phase of hormones in full swing”, concludes the consultant.
