11 Maternity Wardrobe Basics Made in the USA

CONGRATULATIONS!  Expecting a new baby envelopes a new Mama and Papa with so many emotions.  Once the elation of an ever-changing life settles, the preparation begins and so does the unsettling feeling in Mama's mid-section.  To help ease some of the adventure into the world of pregnancy brain, here is a list of some basic maternity wardrobe must-haves, all made in the USA.

1.  Wrap dress
2.  Spanx Power Mama Shaper
3.  Cardigan: A maternity cardigan is more practical during the winter since you will be covering up more than any other season.  Otherwise, you might be able to get away with your pre-pregnancy cardigan.
4. Yoga Pants: Comfort, comfort, comfort!

Soulful Sound Waves Dress
5The Ultimate Maternity Belt:  The belt provides support for lower back pain - and you will get it.  (Think yoga cat pose)
6.  Maternity Jeans - Boot Cut: These complement any body type.  The boot-cut balances out your glowing mid-section.

7.  Maternity Belly Band: When you're in the home stretch of your ever-expanding bump, this Belly Band acts as an extender to your top when everything doesn't seem to fit anymore.
8.  Belly Bandit Tummy Wrap: Great for postpartum use.
9. Stockings / Tights: They help with swelling and tired legs and prevent varicose veins.  Remember no knee-high socks or stockings.
10.  Maxi Dress: A maxi dress forgives all, even during the last trimester when leg-crossing is both a near-impossibility and a no-no.
11.  Comfortable [Flat] shoes: A pair of sneakers can be included in the choice for comfortable shoes, especially for swelling feet.  If sneakers are not an option for you, try these Oka b Taylor Flats.

be no [bump] daddy tee

  2. I still wear some of my maternity clothes...the ones that don't really have the baby bump section. Stretchy waist pants are great and comfy on those lazy, rainy days.
