Dr. Abigail Moore, a paediatric dentist, shares her thoughts on maternity wear uniforms whilst pregnant.
By about week 18-20 the Katelyn top was proving to be an overhead struggle in the chest area so I moved up a size!! I still found my XS Ashley roomy enough though. At this stage I tried a patterned Kathryn top in a size small which suited the mini bump well as it tied under the bust & highlighted my new curves! I found the Karlie pants a bit tight and high waisted so moved up to a small in the Lindseys which were really comfy as they sat low, under the bump and the elasticated waist made them easy to get on.
At about 24-28 weeks my original Ashley tops were a bit tight in the midriff so a size up was called for. As it was coming into winter I loved the extra warmth of the Harlow tops with the snuggly cotton under t-shirt. The Kathryn was still fitting well in a small and I added another patterned top, a Rylee which was a bit less fitted and sat loosely under the bust.
I am now at 35 weeks and still growing rapidly. I have moved up to a medium Ashley which is definitely the most comfy at this stage. I find the more fitted tops with under bust ties aren’t working so well now as they are very big on the shoulders if they are big enough to fit the bump! I am still in the Lindsey pants only a size up from BB (before bump). They are so comfy and don’t interfere with bending as they are low slung.
Only 3 weeks of work left!!
Will keep you posted ……
