I hear it all the time. Do I really need to buy maternity pieces when I’m pregnant? Honestly, no. You don’t. I for one, am a huge fan of maternity pieces for multiple reasons. But, I don’t think you need to have an ENTIRE closet made up of maternity during your pregnancy. With that being said, I’m sharing my favourite non-maternity pieces and how I’ve been styling my bump all Summer long.
This dress has been a HUGE fave over on the ‘gram. I love it for a maternity shoot but is such a cute everyday Summer dress. I’m wearing a medium (third trimester). It’s also available in waterlily and asphalt. Use code: LAURENS20 for 20% off!
This dress was an easy yes for me when I saw it online! I love the smocking, off the shoulder look and it accentuates the bump in the sweetest way! Wearing a size large for my third trimester bump.
Another maternity shoot fave is this off the shoulder dream! I’m wearing a medium for my third trimester bump. It’s available in not only charcoal (the colour I’m wearing) but in white, blush and blue. Use code: LAURENS20 for 20% off!
Talking about faves, this dress has become a weekly (let’s be real like 4 times a week) go-to for my bump! I love, love, love wearing this dress. It’s silky, comfy and super easy to style. I got a large for my third trimester bump but could’ve easily done a medium!
Guess what? Everyone’s favourite, Aritzia, can also be a place to style your bump. They key is to stick to styles without a zipper closure back. That way you can style your bump all pregnancy long without worrying about growing out of your pieces. I’m wearing a large but could’ve done a medium for this third trimester bump!
Another baby doll fave is this little white number! Looks super cute with a pair of kicks or strappy sandals. Wearing a size large with my third trimester bump. Also, these kicks are amazing for pregnant feet (plus they’re under $50). Shop them here (& use code LAURENS20 for 20% off)
Looking for an affordable way to style your bump? Then definitely check out Missguided. I shop at Missguided all the time. And I’ve continued to shop with them throughout. They literally alway have sales and a huge selection of pieces to choose from. I’m wearing a size large in this puffy sleeve number. PS… they do have a maternity section too!
Looking for an affordable, non-maternity bikini? Then I’ve got one for you! I snagged this Zaful bikini from Amazon for under $30 and I’m honestly super happy with it. Wearing a large for my third trimester bump.
