Trends We Love: Tunics & Leggings

maternity tunics and leggingsPossibly a mom-to-be’s best friend, the maternity tunic has just the right touch of comfy-meets-stylish! From solids and stripes to pretty prints and cozy knits, we can’t get enough of these long and lean looks that pair perfectly with your maternity leggings. Accessorize with a bump-framing blazer, this season’s over-the-knee boot and a statement piece of jewelry for a look that will last all day long – and into the night.

Comfortable, stylish and able to be paired with just about anything, leggings are another must-have trend. Whether cropped, full-length, leather or jersey-knit, leggings are a staple, meant to work for your wardrobe through all nine months and beyond.  Available with our patented Secret Fit Belly® or Underbelly, there is a style to fit your unique preference. Dress your leggings up by pairing them with a chic blouse and heels or go casual-cool with a denim jacket, tunic and flats.

Belly Talk: Find your Perfect Fit

When pregnant, the first item of clothing you’ll notice becoming a bit snug is your pants. Rather than turn to an endless supply of sweatpants and baggy bottoms, our selection of affordable denim, pants, shorts and skirts offer belly panels of all different shapes and sizes that are suited to your desire of comfort.

From full coverage panels and no bellies to fold overs, there’s a belly style you will long to live in. Though our patented Secret Fit Belly®, which offers seamless full coverage and support, is our most popular belly, our helpful Belly Panel Guide offers the information you need to choose the panel you want.

Here’s a snapshot of what we have to offer:secret fit bellyThe Secret Fit Belly® provides full coverage and supports by extending over the entire belly. It can also be folded down to be worn comfortably under the belly, while the smooth, lightweight
fabric maternity panel is soft, supportive and will grow with you. It is great for all three trimesters as well as after the baby is born.under belly The Under Belly sits below the belly. Made with a wide elastic band covered by a soft and stretchy cotton-spandex fabric, this maternity panel contours and supports your belly where you need it most while offering minimal coverage. This belly is ideal for early to mid-pregnancy.fold over bellyOur Fold Over Belly has a discreetly blended maternity panel with a non-maternity look for all day comfort when active and on the go. This belly is ideal throughout your pregnancy. Secret Fit Under BellyOur Secret Fit Under Belly is a constructed waist featuring elastic inside with small gussets that provide a comfortable stretch, and it sits below the belly for moderate coverage. This belly is ideal for all three trimesters as well as after the baby is born.

First Trimester: And so it Begins!

maternity clothesThe first trimester is all about finding your comfort zone. For some, pregnancy is quite the shock – even if it was planned! The anticipation of a changing body is usually at the top of every woman’s mind. Most (if not all) of the clothing you have come to know will soon be obsolete. Rather than panic, the beginning of your pregnancy is prime time to stock up on the basics below.

Side Ruched Tees work to stay put while also framing and flattering your growing figure.

Secret Fit Belly® Leggings are the ultimate in maternity wear – everyday

Loungewear creates the comfort you crave while keeping you looking great, too.
