I’m refusing to buy anymore maternity wear as I’m so close to my due date. I might only get a week or so of wear out of maternity clothing. So instead I’m looking at items I can wear now as well as post baby and post pregnancy.
As the winter is closing in I don’t have many knits that fit over my bump so I took myself on a little shop to find that one item. A jumper that will fit me now, but will fit me next winter as well. So something that comes in my normal dress size.
This pink jumper dress from River Island is perfect!
As it’s a jumper dress it fits me now like a big jumper, the excess material covering my humongous bump. I know post pregnancy it’ll be baggy enough to hide the prying eyes from my rather unflattering stomach as I attempt to tone up again to reach my pre pregnancy body. And once I’ve achieved that I can sex it up and use it as a jumper dress with some tights and some ankle boots. For £40.00 it’s a pretty good bargain when you think it’ll see me though quite a bit!
Personally I think it’s an essential winter item for any pregnant woman, but it’s also a pretty great item even if you aren’t pregnant and that’s what I wanted!
