One of the greatest things about being pregnant when the cold weather starts to creep in, is the fantastic range of maternity knitwear that is available. I know when I was first pregnant, I couldn’t wait for the Autumn to come so that I could wrap myself up in big chunky knits and make the most of my new shape.
And this year, Jojo Maman Bebe are making it so easy to look and feel great with a fantastic range of maternity knitwear that is going to leave you feeling fantastic, looking stylish and praying for cold weather. And, as usual with Jojo Maman Bebe maternity wear, you know you are going to get a high quality, stylish outfit without breaking the bank.
Though most of us usually think that the knitted dress is only for the young, when you are pregnant you can throw those rules right out of the window. The knitted fabric provides a great figure hugging style that keeps you looking neat while smoothing out those lumps and bumps to give you a fantastic silhouette.
This season, we don’t think you should be going anywhere without this gorgeous Breton Stripe Knitted Maternity Dresses. The horizontal stripes make you look thinner and more symmetrical whilst the rounder shape in your tummy area makes your legs look thinner giving you the ideal opportunity to show them off with comfortable maternity leggings or maternity tights so that you keep warm but stay relaxed.
We love the way Jojo Maman Bebe have teamed this dress with knee high boots which add a level of sophistication to the outfit and make those strong maternity legs look even better.
Choose from Navy and Ecru or Silver and Charcoal for a fantastic look for the season. And at only £35, this is a dress you can throw in the wash and wear again the next day and is so comfortable you may never want to take it off.
When the weather gets colder team with a maternity coat of a similar length and you have a signature look that is going to take you through to spring in style.
Though it is said that you shouldn’t swamp yourself in big baggy clothes when you are pregnant (It makes you look bigger than you actually are), there are some occasions when a chunky maternity sweater is just what the doctor ordered. If you are going for a long walk with your toddler, are on the school run or just want to curl up in front of a warm fire with your feet up, a comfy jumper is a must when you are pregnant.
As so many of us experience sensitive skin during pregnancy, try to look out for jumpers with a higher wool content which will not only keep you warmer but will also keep the jumper breathable so that you don’t get too hot. It will also make drying your clothes easier when you desperately want to wear it again.
And what ever you do, when you are shopping for maternity clothes, make sure that you don’t forget the reliable maternity cardigan. Whether you opt for warm and comfy or swinging and sophisticated, the cardigan is a must during pregnancy. The right design will wrap tightly around you at the beginning of you pregnancy to give you that soft, protected feeling that we all crave and will then grow with you as your body expands so that you have an elegant look and feel to the very end. And even after the baby is born, your pregnancy cardigan will still give you pleasure and comfort for weeks or even months after adjusting to your size as you return to your pre-pregnancy size.
Right now, we don’t think you can beat the Plum Wrap Maternity Cardigan from Jojo Maman Bebe. With 80% lambswool, it is soft, delicate and feels absolutely amazing while providing a look and shape that is to die for.
The colour is simply beautiful and the design flatters whether you combine it with maternity jeans and trainers or with workwear for the office. The tie belt ensures that this cardigan keeps looking neat and tailored however big you get while the cut ensures that this knitwear will grow with you throughout your pregnancy. At £39, this is an investment well worth making in something that could last you for years and give you the comfort you need during this hectic time.

Standard Delivery in mainland UK is free but there are also express and next day options if you can’t wait to get your hands on your new maternity clothes.

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.

Keeping smart and tailored during your pregnancy can sometimes be a challenge. Though you want to show your feminine side as your pregnancy progresses, it is also important for a lot of women to create a smart business-like profile for the working day. But with the addition of just a few simple pieces to your maternity wardrobe you can create your own professional image but remain comfortable.
The key to a smart corporate image starts with the jacket. Though a lot of the time women refrain from wearing a tailored jacket in the workplace, when you are pregnant a jacket will not only cover your bump but it will keep you looking tailored and neat, and is also a great way to express to your colleagues that you mean business!
At the moment, we think the best tailored maternity jacket has to be this Black Tailored Maternity Jacket from JoJo Maman Bebe. It is the ideal maternity jacket to smarten up your working wardrobe but will look equally as good over jeans, a dress or casual wear for stylish day wear.
The sharp cut on this single breasted jacket gives you a gorgeous tailored shape that has been created to keep you neat and smart. The intelligently placed darts ensure that your jacket will grow with you as your pregnancy progresses but will then fall back into place after your baby is born for those first few months back at work before you can fit into your standard clothes.
Combine with a white shirt or fitted top and you have the ideal corporate look or add a touch of colour with a more fun and feminine top and you can adapt this jacket to your own style and situation.
Team with trousers, skirts or a dress to ensure you have a varied wardrobe during your pregnancy and you will have everything you need to make sure that you keep sharp and sophisticated throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
Take a look at the full range of maternity jackets on our site and make sure that you have everything you need to keep your workwear looking fresh during your pregnancy.Read in full | Comments(0) | Add a comment by simplymaternity on the 1st November 2011

The floral epidemic set to sweep this summers fashion has most definitely started, and maternity clothes are by no means left out. Whether you want to opt for an all over floral maxi dress that is going to show off your bump in style or whether you want to use your the patterns to create an eye catching outfit that would look just as good on you even if you weren’t pregnant, there is bound to be a floral that will take your fancy this summer.
Floral designs are going to be a massive hit this summer across all fashions and walks of life, but their popularity in maternity clothes remains unchanged. One of the key reasons florals are so popular during pregnancy is due to the ‘pretty effect’ that pregnancy has on the majority of women. As we start to radiate beauty and health ourselves, especially during our second and third trimester, so we choose clothes that represent that inner beauty and vitality and there is nothing better than a flower to represent the birth ofÂ new life and the radiance we feel when we are happily pregnant.
Intricate patterns such as the floral design are also very popular with maternity designers as it enables them to bring interest and differentiation to the large amount of material used when creating a maternity product. And with a clever use of pattern and colour, the floral design can either draw attention to the size of your bump, or provide a flattering silhouette that works well with your changing figure.
If you would rather people were looking at you than the size of your bump, avoid small repeated designs which can enlarge your apparent size and instead opt for a flowing pattern that uses detail, colour and style to emphasise the beauty of your pregnancy.
During pregnancy it is common for your sense of touch to become much more heightened which means that heavy artificial fabrics will irritate you and make you feel constricted. By choosing more flowing, delicate fabrics with a more flowing style, you will find that you are more comfortable in your clothes and feel the radiance that pregnancy can truly bring.
Use the opportunity that pregnancy provides to try out new colours and styles for yourself. If you want to completely detract from your bump then use tops with details surrounding the neckline or the breast line so that they eye is moved away from your bump. Alternatively, use a consistent pattern across the entire piece to camouflage your size but give you the best in fabric and design.
Here at Simply Maternity we recommend the Lilac Floral Camisole from Jojo Maman Bebe. The gorgeous purple base to this top is bright and flattering while the delicate floral pattern makes this top bang up to trend and absolutely beautiful for any occasion. In the design, the plunging V-neck top and spaghetti straps draw the eye upwards and emphasise the shoulders ensuring that your top half stays in proportion to your bump while the underbust gathers provide emphasis to the bust and that drape over the bump which makes you look and feel beautiful.
Team this top with crisp white trousers for a wonderful summer look or with denim shorts to provide a funky festival look that will look hot this summer.
We have a great range of maternity tops on our site with some fantastic floral designs from some of the top maternity designers available. But don’t take our word for it, have a browse around the site and see for yourself the amazing variety of clothes that are available to you this summer. The world of maternity design just grows and grows which means you have more choice and variety than ever before.
