The 40-Week Wardrobe
Pregnancy is a time of happy anticipation—and, yup, indulging cravings with abandon—but it can also be full of fashion envy. What’s satisfying about falling in love with a piece, then waiting months (and months...and months) to wear it?
Since we’re solidly in the 'maternity, the modern way' camp, we love how Chrissy of @inmyclosetblog and Elizabeth, AKA @mrsnipple_, put forgiving #dsgoods fleece into their 40-week and beyond wardrobe mix. We asked them to share their best dress-the-bump tips for both during pregnancy and after. Read on, and follow them for a special Dudley offer with mamas in mind.
“As a busy mom with one more on the way, I get dressed on the go, which can be quite the challenge—so I have a few go-to pieces I can throw on and walk out the door feeling put together. The Cobble Hill is definitely one—the length is perfect for moms and easily fits my growing bump. I love how I can wear it with leggings and sneakers one day and skinny jeans and cute flats the next."
"Another favorite: the Pacific Vest. Talk about the perfect layering piece, especially over my large belly. It effortlessly pulls an outfit together; I love pairing it with a button-down top and jeans. The best part about my DS pieces is that I can continue to wear them post baby!" -Chrissy, @inmyclosetblog
“Confidence after giving birth can be a struggle, but the Dudley Stephens line is the perfect postpartum uniform. Not only does the material hold up incredibly well after spit-ups and other mishaps, but the pieces are just as functional (pockets!) as they are beautiful, something every new mom needs."
"Many have a length that’s extremely slimming for the postpartum body, while still providing easy breastfeeding access—and your newborn will always feel cozy against the soft fleece."
"If you will be baby-wearing this fall, the Brooklyn Bomber is a must! My five-month- old fit perfectly, all warm and cozy underneath, and I had both hands free during our recent apple picking trip.” -Elizabeth, AKA @mrsnipple_More bump-friendly fleece here and here.
