Pregnant women try to find the best clothing to flatter their growing bump. The perfect shirt for this job is a shirt that has a cinched waist right underneath the breasts. This way, the shirt naturally flows out where the bump begins, so it looks better placed instead of awkwardly protruding out while tugging at the fabric.
The shirt pictured above (Gap, $39.95) is pleated in order to further fit the bump. The drapery effect of the blouse helps add some growing room in the breasts and belly. The belt further helps make this blouse fit all sizes. The sleeveless aspect, mixed with %100 rayon fabric, makes this blouse cool and breathable in the summer, but can later be worn under a sweater in the fall.
Pregnant women don’t want to buy new maternity clothing each month. This style naturally allows breathing room for the belly no matter what stage a woman is at in her pregnancy.
Overall, a shirt with a belt that cinches around the waist allows for the best fashion, fit, and budget.
