Winter Maternity Style

Dressing a baby bump has always been a lot of fun for me, but since I’ve always had my third trimester during the winter, it was also always been a challenge. Here’s some of my best tips for keeping your bump stylish and cozy throughout the winter!

Invest in the Basics

For me, its all about the classics and extra points if I can wear my maternity clothes after baby is born. This means that styles should be able to translate across all seasons while also being both postpartum and breastfeeding friendly.

A good pair of soft, stretchy and comfortable maternity jeans with a classic, soft stretchy tank is a must for me. These two items can easily build the basis of many outfits within my maternity wardrobe.

A durable pair of leggings is also an item worth investing in. For me, it must not sag at the crotch and must not pill after a wash. Longevity and comfort is queen!

Love your Layers

Last pregnancy I was drawn to tight, fitting, bump flattering clothing but this time I am all about the free and flowing! Tunics, wraps and dresses are huge in my maternity wardrobe. There’s just something about a warm, flowing wrap that feels like a cozy blanket! Perfect for winter bump style!

Keep it Cozy

Since jackets are sometimes hard to fit over a bump, and it isn’t always practical to invest in a big, expensive winter maternity parka (at least not on the west coast where we don’t get snow!), I have had to be creative in finding extra ways to keep myself warm. Mittens and scarves are always a good extra to keep around but toques and headwraps have been a staple for me this season! Always stylish and very practical.

    Great ideas, but here in Ottawa, winter wardrobe is very different. I’ve gotta buy a bigger jacket this year, there’s no way my bump’s being contained and it’s way too cold and snowy to not wear a proper jacket! Trying to get snowpants on the bump will be interesting… 😋

      Very true! I can imagine dressing a bump can look quite different there!
