Jennifer Garner was recently spotted strolling New Years Day in Pacific Palisades California with her girls Violet and Seraphina, husband Ben Affleck and her mother. The 39 year old actress is due in a few weeks and appears to have her mom, Patricia, at hand for help with the big day just around the corner.
Dressed comfortably in jeans, ankle boots and V neck sweater, the actress shows us that even the fittest of Hollywood celebrities look “ready to pop” during the last few months of a healthy pregnancy. As Jennifer shows with her laid back style, it’s important to look and feel comfortable with the maternity clothes you wear, especially during the latter part of your pregnancy.
Don’t be afraid to show off that bump in a sexy maternity bikini. Take advantage of the one time in your life when you don’t have to have flat abs to flaunt a bikini swimsuit and look and feel sexy. Show off your rounded tummy with your favorite style bikini. For many of us, this is a time when our bust is fuller and our curves are welcome!
Classic black strapless always looks good on any body type. Tori Spelling wore this pretty black 2 piece last summer when pregnant with her third child. We think the black oval pendant adds to the glamour of this simple black swimsuit style, particularly with the strapless design.
Check out Prego Maternity’s timeless Maternity Bikini with an oval cinch buckle. The padded bra offers good support and the bottoms are made just for maternity and will comfortably stretch with you while offering a seamless flattering fit. This style comes in black and brown in sizes XS-Large.
Why not have fun with fashion you were too timid to wear before you were pregnant. Try a different style or color than you would normally wear. Experiment with fashion at the beach or pool (or your own backyard).
This season BelaBumbum offers a hot Fushia Ring Maternity Bikini:
This fun color shows you are excited about your pregnancy, your curves and getting out in the sun! This maternity bikini swimsuit features a silver rectangle ring and adjustable halter and back ties. The bikini top is padded for a nice contoured look for your maternity shape and maximum comfort and style. The bottoms are super stretchy to accommodate your changing shape.
In a recent Dankins Event at the Santa Monica Ice Rink, mom-to-be Hilary Duff glowed in a fitted cowl neck mustard sweater. Duff presented a check for $10,000 for Danskin’s “Move for Change” charity event.
Duff pairs this gorgeous fitted sweater with black leggings and grey shade boots and a pretty pendant necklace. We love Hilary’s choice of style as the mustard hued sweater brings out her skin’s radiance and complements her hair color. The cowl neck highlights her face and brings the focus upwards. The fitted leggings and sweater show off her pregnancy curves and give her an overall sleek and stylish look. Also, the longer length sweater elongates and streamlines her figure.
Go for a similar look with Olian’s Turtleneck Top, and Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Leggings.
Leggings are definitely the rage now with a longer fitted sweater or tunic. Maternity leggings are an excellent choice for versatile wear with boots or flats. They also make for great transitional wear after the baby!
Set your DVR’s or watch the episode of “The Office” Thursday Jan. 12 on NBC, 9/8c time. Prego Maternity sent their Solid Black Halter Baby Doll suit to “The Office” for Angela and Pam to wear. We don’t know if one of them or both of them will wear the suit. Can wait to see!
We have this same maternity suit in both black and brown: Our sizing on this Prego style runs from Small to 3X.
The Solid Black Halter Baby Doll is a timeless maternity swimwear style. Black is the best color for slimming and giving your enhanced assets a sexy boost. Even if you have already had your baby and want to disguise a postpartum belly, you can continue wearing this style until you are ready to fit back into your prepregnancy bikini!
For the serious swimmers who also like the Baby Doll style maternity swimsuit, we also have it in the Tankini design. The Tankini Baby Doll comes in Black in sizes Large-2X. It is a two piece with over the belly bottoms and adjustable tankini straps. The Halter Baby Doll is also a 2 piece with adjustable halter ties.
Stay tuned to “The Office” on Jan 12th to see who wears the Prego Halter Baby Doll maternity swimsuit!
Hilary Duff, who is due in February, has been very active during her pregnancy. From running errands around town to working out to spending quality time with her hubby, we have loved all the casual outfits she has worn! Just yesterday, Hilary was spotted leaving a Pilates class in comfy sweats and a loose fitting top, but spiced up her look with a pair of funky glasses. Every mom needs a pair of go to sweats, and Majama’s Softest Yoga Pant is a great choice for a gym workout or walk with one’s friends.
Earlier in the week Hilary was seen running errands around town in a cute, all-back ensemble. Black leggings paired with a black tunic top and moccasin inspired boots completed her comfy yet stylish look. The loose top paired with fitted leggings creates a nice balance, and the boots added a funky and fun touch. When one wants to look fashionable yet remain comfortable, this outfit is a great choice. Try Bella Band’s super stretchy Essentials Over Belly Maternity Leggings paired with Olian’s Off The Shoulder Tee for a similar look.
Last month, when Hilary was out and about in Los Angeles, she paired the same great maternity leggings with a cute striped tank top and a large, cowl scarf. As the weather gets cooler, this outfit works by simply switching the tank out for a long sleeve top, such as 1 in the Oven’s ¾ Sleeve Striped Nursing Henley.
We love how Hilary wears comfortable clothing while still looking stylish!
Searching for that perfect Christmas gift for your favorite mom-to-be? Fear not! There are several essentials that every mom wants and needs, making it a surefire guarantee that you will have the perfect gift.
Cute and comfy pajamas are an essential for every woman, and a pair designed for both maternity and nursing is a great gift option. The Olian sleepwear sets are coveted by all expectant mothers, as they are comfortable, cute, and made incredibly well. The sets are all a bit different, but many include a nursing tank, bottoms, a robe, and a cute baby sleeper. The super soft and lightweight fabric ensures comfort throughout the night, and the fun patterns are feminine and pretty. The Hearts 4 Piece Nursing Pajama set is a favorite among mothers, with the dainty heart pattern. If the gender of the baby is unknown, try the Green Leaf 4 Piece Nursing Pajama Set as the green baby sleeper is unisex.
Another item coveted by expectant mothers is the Bella Band. This seamless knit band is worn over one’s pre-pregnancy pants when they are too small and used to hold up one’s pregnancy pants when they are still a bit too big. It can also be worn after pregnancy to transition back into pre-pregnancy clothing. The Bella Band ensures comfort and one size fits throughout the entire pregnancy. Available in many colors, there is also a lace option that adds extra feminine detail.
Layering is a popular trend, and when one’s baby bump is growing a layering tank is a great way to provide extra coverage. Maternity tanks are designed with extra stretch to fit throughout one’s pregnancy, and they are an excellent gift for any expectant mom. The Essentials Everyday Cami from Bella Band has an ultra-soft knit blend and seamless construction to ensure comfort throughout the day. Perfect for layering, it is cut extra-long to ensure coverage throughout one’s pregnancy.
Surprise that special mom-to-be with the perfect Christmas gift! She will love any of these options as they are both fashionable and functional.
This week has been an exciting one for many pregnant celebrity mamas, and they are eager to share their joy with the rest of the world. The gorgeous and glowing Jessica Simpson appeared on the Rachel Ray Show yesterday, and was very happy to discuss her pregnancy. When she felt her baby move for the first time, she was overcome with emotion. “I felt [the baby] move the other day for the first time and I had big crocodile tears. It was the coolest thing ever. It did a flip or something. I was like, ‘There it went. It’s there, it’s really there.’” We can feel her joyful emotions, and Jessica said she has been queen of the waterworks during her pregnancy, stating that she has been crying “at the drop of a hat”. She adds that, “Even a great soufflé would make me cry.” Wearing a fitted animal print dress and black tights, Jessica looked ready absolutely stunning.
Another star sharing about her pregnancy this week is the beautiful Jennifer Garner. Gracing the cover of InStyle magazine, Jennifer spoke to them about some of the difficulties pregnancy can bring. She says that she had nausea during her first trimester, and some strange food cravings. She stated, “My kids had never seen Doritos before. They would say, ‘Mom, where did you get that orange chip? I really want that’”. We love her adorable family and know the next baby will be just as sweet. Jennifer also spoke of her pregnancy weight gain. “I wish I was one of those cute pregnant girls who wear skinny jeans throughout their pregnancies. But I just gain weight.” We appreciate her candidness, and think that she looks gorgeous in everything she wears! We look forward to the new babies that will be arriving soon!
Always sweet and down to earth, the beautiful Jennifer Garner has been radiating happiness during her third pregnancy. Due the end of February, she and hottie husband Ben Affleck are very excited for the arrival of their newest addition. With two daughters already in the family, Jennifer told Ellen DeGeneres that they do not know the sex of the baby but that she would not mind another girl, stating, “”Three girls is a great way to grow up. I’m one of three girls and my little sister is awesome.” We cannot wait to see whether it is a boy or a girl!
Throughout her pregnancy, Jennifer’s fashion choices have remained true to her relaxed and down to earth style. Just yesterday, Jennifer was spotted running errands around town in jeans, a loose white blouse and a structured blazer. The blazer completes this outfit perfectly, as it creates a flattering silhouette and pairs nicely with the looser top. This outfit works great for daily errands but can easily be dressed up for a night out by pairing it with dark wash jeans and heels. For a similar look, try Maternal America’s Front Tie Blouse and pair it with their Pintuck Jeans. Throw on your favorite color scarf, and the outfit is complete!
Even though she loves a relaxed style, Jennifer also loves to get dressed up for those special occasions. She combines elegance and comfort effortlessly. We adore the bright blue sheath dress she wore in August, and the trendy nude heels she paired it with. For a similar cut, the Embellished Dress from Maternal America works for all stages of one’s pregnancy. The empire waist flatters, and the embellished neckline is classy and stylish.
As a working mom, Jennifer often has meetings to attend. We love the business-style outfit she wore in October, which paired a pencil skirt with an embellished tee and blazer. When wearing a pencil skirt during pregnancy, purchase one that is designed especially for maternity as it will have extra stretch in the waist. The Olian Pencil Skirt is a great option, fitting perfectly under one’s belly with a wide and stretchy waistband. Pair it with a great blouse, and a quick and stylish work outfit is instantly created.
Congratulations to Jennifer and Ben! We look forward to the arrival of their newest addition!
The holidays are here and that means gift giving, delicious food, and holiday parties. During pregnancy, one wants to look and feel one’s best so it is important to find a stylish and flattering maternity holiday dress! There are many options available this year, ensuring there is something for everyone.
Everyone loves an LBD, as it works for a multitude of occasions and can easily be dressed up or down. One great choice that puts a twist on the classic LBD is Maternal America’s Gold Sash Front Tie Dress. It features a cross-over design and deep V-neck that is flattering and slimming. The gold tie above the waist accentuates the smallest part of one’s body while showing off one’s beautiful baby bump. Pair it with gold heels and a black cardigan for any office or family holiday party!
One of the biggest trends this season is animal print, and it can easily be incorporated into one’s holiday dress wardrobe. The ¾ Sleeve Animal Print Maternity Dress from Olian Maternity is one great option. Sexy and festive, the black accented neckline and trim pair perfectly with the leopard print base. Wear it with black maternity tights, heels, and gold earrings for the perfect holiday outfit!
Lace is another beautiful holiday accent, and the Front Over Lace Dress from Japanese Weekend is sure to make one look and feel amazing! The lace has a vintage feel and the open V-neck is incredibly flattering. The empire waist slims and the fabric flows over one’s baby bump comfortably. Elegant and classy, it is a great holiday party choice.
Congratulations to the gorgeous Kourtney Kardashian and long-term boyfriend Scott Disick on the announcement on their pregnancy! This will be the excited couple’s second child, and will be joining big brother Mason, who is almost two. Kourtney’s younger sister Khloe praised the expectant mother, stating that she is “the greatest mom in the world”!
In anticipation of the baby, we want to take a look back at the best of Kourtney’s outfits from her first pregnancy. One look we loved was the hot white cocktail dress she wore to her sister Kim’s birthday. In the third trimester of her pregnancy, Kourtney truly looked amazing! It showed off her baby bump beautifully, and had a fresh and fun vibe. For a similar look, La Saree Dress by Maternal America is a must have. The long-sleeves are elegant and the ruching on the side is incredibly flattering.
Another look of Kourtney’s that we loved was the short purple dress she wore for a night out. The chiffon like material is light and airy, ensuring comfort. The V-neck really elongates the body for a longer and leaner look. Paired with black heels and a statement necklace, Kourtney looked gorgeous.
Finally, to the 2009 Emmy’s, Kourtney showed off her very pregnant belly in a stunning dark purple gown. The sweetheart neckline created a gorgeous frame for her face, while the thin straps added support and comfort. The empire waist is the perfect design, as it accentuated the smallest part of her body while showing off her beautiful curves. Classic and sexy yet not overwhelming, Kourtney was truly the belle of the ball.
With her natural sense of style, we know the working mom and face of the Belly Bandit will have just as amazing maternity outfits for her second pregnancy.
Congratulations to Kourtney, Scott, and soon to be big brother Mason!
