Opt For Maternity Stripes This SpringWritten by simplymaternity on Monday 19th of March 2012
It has been a long held belief that horizontal stripes should be avoided at all costs when you are pregnant. Side ways strips have always been cursed with a reputation for adding width to your body and increasing the apparent size of your bump, but in actual fact it has come to light that the opposite is actually true.
If you are a lover stripes yourself, you will know that well placed stripes will move the eye across the body, not only flattening out your growing bump but also giving you definition to your waist creating a great silhouette for your pregnancy body.
And right now, Jojo Maman Bebe are celebrating the benefit of stripes in their new collection with some fantastic maternity knits that are perfect for making you look good and keeping you up to date with the latest maternity styles.
This Breton Maternity Jumper is the perfect example of how maternity stripes can work for you.
The way that the stripes are focused solely over the tummy area, flattens out your bump and draws your waist in to give you an exceptional look.
The boat neck and solid colour on the top part of the jumper draws the eye upwards and creates a great feature that balances out your entire body shape.
Made in 100% cotton to keep your clothes comfortable and breathable through the entire summer, choose from Red or Navy for a fantastic jumper that is going to see you all the way through your pregnancy and beyond.
For full on stripes, try this 3-Way Maternity Cardigan also from the Jojo Maman Bebe collection which combines the up to date stripy style with the practicality of a cardigan that can be worn pretty much any way you would like to.
The waterfall collar on this maternity cardigan means that you can wear it open to create a great feature to the front of your outfit, framing anything from a casual jeans and t-shirt through to an elegant shift dress.
Use the integrated tie and define your waist for a more traditional look, or you can button up your cardigan for a classic style that looks just as great with maternity jeans and trousers as it does to warm up your summer dress.
With such a versatile but elegant shape, you will want to keep wearing this cardigan long after your baby is born. It is ideal for nursing and the flattering style means that this cardigan is always going to fit well and look fantastic.
