Philipps chatted to E! about her strategy in dressing for the awards in her third trimester of pregnancy.
“It was hard to decide which way to go. Do you hide the bump, do you show it off?’ the Cougar Town said of her Gabriella Candela gown.
‘I went with show it off! I embraced it!’
Busy, who is due in June, said she’s been craving sandwiches. She also opened up about announcing her pregnancy on Twitter, joking, ‘I didn’t want people to think I was just getting chubby. I was excited to share the news!’
Dressing in the latter stages of pregnancy can be a tricky thing, but typically showing a bump, particularly when it is a big bump, with a stretchy tight wrap clothing or ruching, does more to show off your overall glamour and style than placing tent clothing around it try to disguise it, which only makes you look “bigger” particularly if the emphasis is to hide your belly.
Another good rule of thumb is to go for solid colors and less busy patterns if you are in the later stages of pregnancy with a bump that feels more like a mountain. A full length maxi dress or gown in a solid color in the later stages of pregnancy will greatly elongate your look and streamline your figure. The early and mid months of pregnancy are generally a better time to mix up the patterns and prints, before the bump becomes the main focus of your shape. Also, as we all know, darker colors are more slimming and the winter months are a good time to take advantage of that strategy.
Pregnancy is a beautiful time in life and one you will want to remember fondly. If you have fun with your curves and bump at each stage of your pregnancy than you will feel as beautiful as you look.
