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.
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.
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!
Little Black Dress? Try Little Black Maternity Bikinis! We are loving the black maternity bikinis that are hugely popular this summer season with expectant mothers. Pregnancy is a time to celebrate one’s curves, and there is no better or sexier way to do so than in an LBB. Always busy mama Tori Spelling, who is expecting her third child with handsome hubby Dean McDermott this October, was spotted taking a stroll on the beach in May in a stylish black bikini. She was glowing! Black is always classic, adds a hint of sexiness, and never goes out of style. We love its halter style as it provides extra support for one’s changing bust size during pregnancy. For a similar look, try Prego’s gorgeous Bow Tie Bikini. With its extra stretchy material that is made to hug one’s curves, it can be worn all throughout pregnancy and beyond!
Another celebrity mama, the uber-talented Toni Collette, was spotted on the beach back in February, two months before giving birth to her beautiful baby boy Arlo, in a super-cute LBB with dainty white polka dots. The polka dots give this swimsuit an extra feminine touch and the adjustable straps allow Toni to customize its fit. We love the added ruffle detail as well. Prego’s Black Dot Bikini provides a similar look. The rectangular ring design at the bust is incredibly stylish, and the bust support offered is excellent. For all those mamas who want to bare their bod, a classic yet comfortable way to do so is with a stylish LBB!
When Beyoncé and Jay-Z announced their pregnancy last month, we were so excited for the incredible couple! We were also incredibly excited for the gorgeous maternity fashion we knew Beyoncé would wear, and she has not disappointed. From red-carpet dresses to running errands around town, her maternity fashion is stylish, eye-catching, and oh-so gorgeous.
Just a few weeks ago, at the launch for her new fragrance, Beyoncé sparkled and shined in a short, blue sparkling tunic and sequined blazer. Pairing it with black heels, she accented her gorgeous legs. We love that she chose a short dress to show off her legs but stayed more covered on top. Balancing an outfit this way is sexy and classy. Maternal America’s Navy Shift Dress has the same loose feel. Pair it with a fitted blazer and sparkling gold jewelry for the perfect date-night outfit.
Looking radiant in a more casual look, Beyonce rocked a printed white tee and black skinny jeans at the U.S. Open Men’s Final Match. We love the black, white, and gold palette she chose, and the comfort which the soft tee and stretchy jeans provide. For an equally stylish yet comfy look, pair Maternal America’s Belly Support Leggings in black with Olian’s Off The Shoulder Tee. The loose fitting tee ruches underneath the belly for comfort and has a glam feel with its off-the-shoulder cut. Pair it with cute sneakers or ballet flats and a funky statement piece of jewelry for a true Beyoncé look.
Beyonce’s maternity wardrobe stays true to her style and personality, while ensuring her comfort throughout her pregnancy. She recently spoke to E! News of the joys of pregnancy, stating “[Pregnancy] is the most incredible gift anyone can have. I’m very excited. I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been.” Congrats, Beyoncé and Jay-Z!
Bikinis are all the rage on pregnant celebrities this season! From beach days to yacht cruises, we are seeing maternity bikinis everywhere. Maternity bikinis are a fabulous choice, as they allow plenty of room for one’s baby bump to grow and never feel restricting. Different from a regular bikini, they are designed with extra bust support and adjustable straps so that they can be fitted to one’s body throughout one’s pregnancy.
Back in February, when the gorgeous Selma Blair was just starting to show, she rocked her beginning baby bump in a fun, brightly printed floral bikini. She paired it with a chic cowboy hat for added sun protection and to add an additional splash of style. There is no better way to honor one’s pregnancy than in a fresh and happy print! For a similar option, Prego’s Kona Skirted Bikini has gorgeous chocolate brown flowers against a bright aqua background.
White bikinis are another popular choice as they look gorgeous against tanned skin, and surfer-girl Kate Hudson was spotted wearing a super cute one in March, four months before the birth of her second son. We love how she paired it with a shell necklace and printed sarong wrap, staying true to her laid back style.
Many women shy away from bikinis during pregnancy since their bodies are changing. However, if a bikini is something you normally like to wear, go for it! Make sure the maternity bikini you buy has plenty of bust support on the top and that the bottoms fit comfortably beneath your baby bump. As long as you are comfy, you will look and feel amazing!
With the recent rush of celebrity baby births, post pregnancy style has been on full display. Dressing one’s after baby body can seem a bit daunting, but there are so many cute and comfy options to choose from. Kate Hudson, who gave birth to second son Bing on July 9th, was spotted wearing a gorgeous floral sundress just a few weeks later. The flowing fabric allowed room for her post baby weight, while the wrap highlighted the smallest part of her body. We loved the happy floral print which represented her joyful attitude and also helped to camouflage the baby weight. We loved that she stayed true to her Bohemian chic style, while choosing something that was both comfortable and practical.
Ivanka Trump, who gave birth to daughter Arabella on July 17, made her post-pregnancy debut one month later in a gorgeous navy blue wrap dress. The deep V-neck of the dress is an excellent choice as it elongates the body, which in turn creates a slimming look. We love the bold blue color choice, as well as the flowing fabric. Ivanka’s dress stayed true to her classic style, and truly represented her. For a similar look, Olian’s Kora V-Neck Maternity/Nursing Dress provides the same great shape and easy nursing access.
Back in February, Miranda Kerr stepped out for the first time after giving birth a month earlier to baby Flynn. For her post-baby debut, Miranda chose a gorgeous patterned maxi-dress with a tailored boyfriend blazer. This is an excellent choice, as the maxi dress is comfortable and allows plenty of room while the structure of the blazer creates a finished and polished look. This is a perfect look for fall and the transition from hot to cooler weather.
These are all great post-pregnancy looks as they provide comfort and camouflage post baby weight while providing structure and style!
Congratulations to the gorgeous Natalie Portman and her fiancé Benjamin Millepied, a world renowned dancer and choreographer, on their pregnancy! A style icon in her on right, Natalie has always had a beautifully effortless look about her, choosing clothing that represents her free spirit while staying perfectly stylish. This fabulous fashion sense is sure to continue throughout her pregnancy and we cannot wait to see what she will wear!
With awards season just getting started and so many movies out, Natalie is sure to have lots of opportunities to wow us with her gorgeous maternity style. So far we have seen her looking beautiful at the People’s Choice Awards this past week in a pretty blue knee-length dress. Being in the public eye and only in the beginning stages of her pregnancy, she chose a looser dress with added ruffles to slightly camouflage her baby bump. The soft scoop neck and gently flowing fabric paired with the solid black line detailing adds a great contrast. At this weekend’s showing of Black Swan, Natalie once again wowed us in a stunning knee-length, black and tan patterned blocked dress. The long sleeves balancing out the shortness of the dress is the perfect amount of skin and the gold jeweled accents around the neck and wrists is eye-catching.
From the premier of her upcoming movie No Strings Attached to the plethora of award shows which are just getting started, Natalie will be in need of many more maternity dresses. As her baby bump continues to grow, we would love to see her accent it in some beautiful empire waist dresses. For the one of her movie premiers the Embellished Dress in navy would be a perfect choice. With an elastic empire waist and soft stretch fabric, she will be comfortable all night long. The gorgeous jeweled neckline on this dress truly makes a statement and is sure to look stunning in front of all the cameras. Classy yet unique, its deep navy color would look beautiful with Natalie’s coloring. For a big red carpet event, Maternal America’s Gold Band Maxi Dress is a gorgeous option. This Grecian inspired dress, with gold banding around the bust and empire waist, is pure elegance. Paired with black or gold heels and a great bracelet, Natalie would surely look incredible. Congratulations again to the happy couple!
This from the Los Angeles Times.
Mariah Carey is expecting twins, her husband confirmed on his “Rollin With Nick Cannon” radio show Thursday morning. But apparently the story was already out.
“She shared with the president and the first lady that we are having twins,” Cannon said. “I haven’t even told my wife I was doing this, so I am probably going to get yelled at for not getting permission.”
The missus apparently couldn’t keep mum when talking to to the first couple at the Sunday taping of “Christmas in Washington.” Hey, when the first lady asks you a question, you tell her first, right?
The special, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, airs Friday on TNT. Carey has said she’s expecting “in the spring.”
