Rocking a bump this season?

Maternity dressing shouldn’t mean sacrificing your personal style – as Rhianna has clearly shown us.

And although you might just about get away with your regular wardrobe in the early days, a growing bump can often mean your body, and go-to outfits need some rethinking.

If your expanding belly has left you at a loss when it comes to outfit planning, fear not – Penneys’ easy-wear maternity range has tons of practical, yet also stylish, solutions.

Maternity must-haves

No matter what trimester you’re in, introducing a few maternity pieces to your existing wardrobe is the key to fuss-free everyday dressing throughout pregnancy. Let’s face it, pregnancy itself can be a journey so the last thing you need to worry about is what to wear.

And can we all agree – dressing while pregnant shouldn’t leave you confined to stretchy leggings. Luckily, Penneys’ maternity mom jeans come in hot-right-now colours like ecru and white, in other words, perfect for summertime.

Wear yours over or under your bump and pair them with a longline side-vent tees that’ll fit however fast you grow.

And also – being cosy and comfortable is priority number one, so when you are feeling the need for some extra comfort, slip into this new matching co-ord tracksuit – a chic go-to answer to everyday wear.

Summer maternity wear

Don’t let rising temperatures get in the way of stylish pregnancy looks. Higher than average body temperature doesn’t mix well with humidity and sunshine so ensure your maternity wardrobe lends itself to keeping you cool.

Lightweight layers like Penneys’ poplin shirts are a staple and sophisticated piece you can wear on rotation. Perfect for layering over cami tops and dresses, they can also be worn buttoned up and tucked into skirts and shorts.

If denim shorts are usually an essential part of your summer wardrobe, then snap up the new maternity denim Bermuda shorts. Oh, and did we mention they’re ideal for that much-needed babymoon too.

And don’t forget to packet this gorgeous black ruffle maternity swimsuit too.

We are obsessed with this cream wrap dress – the answer to all al-fresco dining and occasions that warrant dressing up your bump.

Pair with your favourite sandals and you’re set. Or show off your new silhouette in some of Penneys’ bump-flattering sleeveless midi dresses that are available in both blue and pink. Perfect attire, of course, for a baby shower or gender reveal.

Maternity nightwear

The new range of mix and match pyjama separates means there’s something you’ll love whatever your sleeping style. Choose from longer leg or short style bottoms and cami or t-shirt tops. Prefer an oversized nightie? This adorable Bambi nightdress should be on top of your wish list.
