Feeling Sexy During Pregnancy
people think that the word sexy and pregnancy do not belong together. I
have to disagree. In fact, I have heard many men say that a woman is
her sexiest and most beautiful when she is pregnant!
So, how do
you go about feeling sexy when your belly is expanding and your body is
going through so many changes? So many women tell me they feel
unattractive when they are pregnant, but they don’t have to!
The good news is that the days of the maternity tent dress are over! Today’s maternity wear is hip, trendy and yes, even sexy! http://maternitycorner.com/miva/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=M
The designers have brilliantly combined comfort and fashion in clothing
that you can start wearing as soon as you discover you are pregnant
right on through post-partum and beyond.
Just wearing your
husband clothes may be economical – and they may fit fine over your
expanding belly -- but they will not have a good fit everywhere else!
Buying bigger sizes in regular clothes is also never a great idea if
you want to feel good about yourself. I’m sorry to say you will just
look bigger and feel frumpy.
There are several “basics” that
every woman should have when she is pregnant. For your first pieces,
try to stick with basics that will go with everything. A couple of good
pairs of pants, jeans or skirts are a good place to start (your
lifestyle will determine which is best for you). Add a top or two and
you are on your way! Then, as you "grow", add tops in fashionable
prints and colors that will mix and match with your basics, giving you
fresh new looks, as well an occasional, much needed, psychological
boost. If you are really keen, splurge on some “not-so-practical” tops
or bottoms to round out your maternity wardrobe. Remember, many of
today’s styles can be worn after baby too!
If you cannot afford a
whole new wardrobe, or even if you can and don't want to spend the
money, you need to get yourself at least a couple of basics and one
outfit that makes you feel beautiful and sexy -- there is no price for
the way an outfit like this will make you feel!
Don’t forget your
underwear! If your underwear binds you are not going to feel
comfortable. There are so many great styles available now! And if
you’re a thong wearer, there’s no reason to stop now. Maternity thongs,
as well as the bikinis and briefs, are available in a wide variety of
fabrics and colors.
Chances are you will probably require several
different bra sizes throughout your pregnancy. No matter which type of
bra you choose, fit is important. There should be room for expansion
around the rib cage and room for expansion in the cup, but not so much
that the bra does not provide adequate support. Have fun with your
maternity and nursing bras -- there are so many options available!
are also some great skin care products available now. Pamper yourself
with some luxurious creams or body wash! Take some time out for you --
you deserve it!
Remember, when you feel good, you look great -- even sexy!
