Now that I’m in the last few weeks of pregnancy trying to find something that even fits has become a challenge, let alone something stylish.
If you’ve kept up with my pregnancy updates you’ll know that up until recently I’ve mixed bigger sized basics with maternity pieces. Currently my bump seems to get bigger every day and is protruding from the bottom of most of my tops – not a desirable look I’m sure you’d agree. So I’ve been on the hunt for some maternity clothes that are stylish, comfortable, fit me and don’t break the bank – Hello George at ASDA.
I’ve found the George maternity range has some great pieces that you can style up at a low price. Here are some pieces that I’m now living in to get me through the last few weeks before Baby Douglas arrives . . .
Black wrap dress – £12
I absolutely love this dress as it makes me feel like I still have a figure – with a massive bump of course. The fabric is lightweight and the wrap neckline accentuates my boobs whilst the gathering detail nips me in and then stretches nicely over the bump. The dress is fitted down to the knee allowing the whole look to be stylish yet demure. It’s perfect for work, going out to dinner or anytime you want to feel smart. I think this dress in particular is great value for money at only £12. Normally I would team this dress with heels but at 9 months pregnant I’ve hung them up in favour of some floral flip flops from Primark.
Black polka dot t-shirt (pack of 2 t-shirts for £12)
This t-shirt which comes in a pack of 2 with a plain pink option is a great basic for everyday wear. The capped sleeve with the scoop neck and stretch ruching down the side of the top gives it shape. The front is longer allowing the top to fit over the bump and considering I’m now 9 months pregnant it provides good coverage. I also think these tops will be good for after baby arrives too. I chose to team the top with these harem trousers from H&M and gold flip flops from Monsoon.
Blue Maxi Dress £12
This dress is perfect for the warm weather we’ve been having, its lightweight and fits smoothly over my bump without looking baggy. The slight v in the neckline is flattering and allows you to accessorise with statement necklaces if you wanted to dress up this garment for an occasion and the gathering on the empire line gives some definition.
Blue crochet trim vest top £8
This vest top is quite different to the other items I’ve worn whilst being pregnant in that the hem goes outwards allowing the fabric to flow over the bump instead of stretch over and back in. I like that the style is quite Sixties and reminds me of Mad Men. Again it is perfect for this Summer weather and it’s so comfortable! The oval neckline is neat and the top flows out over the bump which is nicely trimmed with a crochet edging providing some detail. The blue and white colour is also quite nautical and I chose to team the top with some blue patterned trousers from Primark and gold flip flops from Monsoon.
I hope you like my outfits from George, I really wanted to show how good their Maternity line is especially for the reasonable prices. For all of these items and more please click on the link below:
