What's Your Maternity Style?

Loose and Flowy or Tight and Showy Maternity Clothes?

Everyone has her own taste when it comes to maternity outfits.

Some expectant mothers follow Jennifer Lopez's flowy frock wearing example while others are more tuned in to a Halle Berry belly hugging style.

Which look do you prefer?

I agree with comments that it typically looks better to wear something fairly fitted instead of trying to "hide" your belly, which will only make you look bigger. J.Lo looks like she's gained a ton of weight, to me. I think Halle looks fab.

Being pregnant with twins meant everything must be big and flowy....tightness was not an option. comfort was key. I was still very fashionable though!! ;)

Halle looks so cute! I personally preferred something flowy because it was more comfortable. but the tight shirts just looks so cute over that little baby bump!! I just don't like the cut off shirts that show your actual stomach..those are a bit tacky.

with my second, I dressed a lot like Halle is dressed in this picture. I was more comfortable. And I always made sure it looked good and not ridiculous. Never had my belly hanging out! With my first I dressed loose and flowy.

I looked best in jersey wrap dresses, like Von Furstenberg ones, but actually £25 from Top Shop. I didn't really look good in anything, though. I hated maternity jeans, they either made me itchy because they were over the bump, or showed my whole bum because they were under the bump and kept sliding. The best t-shirts I had weren't maternity at all, they were petit bateau in size 18, which were longer and softer and stretchier than the maternity ones I tried on, the latter nearly killing me with their tightness when i tried to take them off. I actually blush when I think how bad I looked most days, luckily there were no photographs, although that is in itself kind of sad.

I work in a meternity store and I have to say that it all depends on the item, but showing off your belly often looks so much better than trying to drape yards of fabric around it to be more "appealing". If you are pregant, flaunt it and if you aren't happy with your shape, MommaSpanx work wonders!

i did flowy when i was pregnant with my daughter, because i was HUGE....from everywhere, this pregnancy ive done tight and showy, because my son has only streched my tummy. i still got curves, but with a baby belly!!
