zulily's Best Dressed Bump List!

While my pregnant days are over, it was just five months ago that I was struggling to fit into ANYTHING, and dreaming of the days I would be back in my normal clothes. Things are getting easier for pregnant women though. There are so many stylish options options out there, and now with user friendly sites like zulily bringing you the latest trends at a discounted price, you can be the "best dressed pregnant mommy" your friends know! zulily offers the best kids fashion, mommy fashion (for those of us that are pregnant or not), kitchen items, home items and accessories (plus lots and lots more!)

zulily's style expert shared her five most stylish pregnant list and even offered some tips to help you be as fashionable as possible, even if you are feeling anything but!

1.      Chrissy Teigen: The super model steps out in a simple grey body con dress paired a khaki jacket and mirrored aviators, bringing a whole new level of comfy chic to the streets of NYC.

2.      Emily Blunt: Its baby number two for Mrs. Krasinski, who recently debuted her bump in chic, light blue winter wear while on the set of her upcoming movie The Girl on the Train.

3.      Ivanka Trump: Not only does the gorgeous business mogul rock pregnancy chic during the day, but she also has evening maternity-wear down as well, as seen here in a playful blue floral frock.

4.      Liv Tyler: The actress proves that maternity-wear doesn’t need to be dowdy at the recent Critics' Choice Awards. The look is effortlessly elegant, with a bit of edge thanks to the thigh-high slit.

5.      Anne Hathaway: Who said you can't wear a mini dresses when you're pregnant? The expectant mama recently debuted her blossoming bump in a black mod minidress on the red carpet.

Here is the tips Robin compiled for all of you fab pregnant ladies:

1.      Invest in a great pair of maternity jeans. Purchase a pair of over-the-belly denim when you are about 13-16 weeks along.  It may seem unnecessary in the early stages, but you will be grateful that you have them once you hit the 6-month mark.

*Style Tip: you can fold over the belly to create an underbelly jean if you do not fill out the belly band or if you need added support at the hip area.  You can also do the same thing after pregnancy, stretching (pun intended!) the life of your jeans.

2.      Look for side-ruched tops. “Side ruched” tops are great because they hide the early pregnancy belly when you haven’t quite popped yet, as well as camouflage any problem areas after baby has arrived.

*Style Tip: Look out for tees like that are 100% cotton.  They do not hold their shape as well as tops with a spandex blend.

3.      Buy true maternity wear instead of just going up a size. Maternity clothes are fit to a pregnant model and designed with a drape to accommodate a growing baby bump. Invest in key pieces to get you comfortably through pregnancy.

*Style Tip: If you want to utilize some of your pre-pregnancy wear, put on your pre-pregnancy blazers and cardigans open and pair them with a fitted maternity tee and maternity pants.

 The bottom line is this, we moms are only pregnant for such a short time and we need to enjoy and rock that baby bump! Even if we feel like we are enormous, enjoy it- enjoy the kicks and punches, because one day looking back these will be the best years of our lives and we will miss this- swollen ankles and all!

  1. Maternity clothing has changed over the years. Back when I was having children, everything looked like a tent. I think people push it too far now though. Somewhere in between would be good. Not skin tight but not too loose.
