Building a Sustainable Closet: Maternity Friendly
I promised myself two things when I found out I was pregnant: 1. Wear my regular clothes for as long as I can and 2. When I do have to make purchases, make sure they’re pieces that I can wear during pregnancy, when the baby is born, and way after. So far, it hasn’t been too hard given that most of my clothing is intentionally oversized…it’s almost a prerequisite to create oversized clothing if you’re a sustainable brand. I’m not mad at it. Give me comfort especially in my current state.
Tried and True Favorites
I wanted to share 6 of my tried and true maternity friendly favorites that I actually own. They’re also in constant rotation in my wardrobe. If you’re thinking of creating a maternity capsule collection, these pieces are a great starting point.
Most of these items are not designed solely for pregnant women, rather I think of them as pieces meant for a constantly changing body. If there’s one thing I want to feel during this time it’s that I want to feel like me.
- Elizabeth Suzann Harper Tunic: the giant single pocket sold me on this one. I wear it all the time and still feel put together.
- Uzinyc Disko Cube Top: I spotted the Disko Cube top while browsing Sunchild (also an amazing online boutique) and it was the type of piece to fulfill my love of pattern. I love how it’s boxy and how the sleeves are wing-like.
- Tradlands Jude Pullover (gifted): The Jude Pullover is a perfect transition from winter to spring. It’s not too thick either so it’s easy to layer. I’ve also been wearing this nearly every day since WFH,
- ARQ High Rise Undies & Wide Strap Bra: I knew I had to a buy a set when I saw how everyone looked so beautiful in their pieces. They’re wildly comfortable and I still feel so good in them.
- Mien Studios Lakeside jumpsuit: I have 3 Lakeside jumpsuits from Mien studios that are in frequent rotation in my closet. I also bought 2 out of the 3 pieces years before I got pregnant. It’s super flattering in every way.
- Tradlands Nico Dress (gifted): The Nico Dress along with the Jude Pullover is part of Tradlands’s Spring/Summer collection. This dress came in last weekend, and I’ve worn it nearly every day since. The dress is also coming out in their gorgeous Caroline print on April 21st. I am so wildly excited for it.
How about you? Do have any advice on buying maternity-friendly pieces? I am still in the market for some pants, but at the rate I’m going, I might just say “see you later” to pants for the rest of my pregnancy.
