Advice and Tips

Here are a few tips when buying maternity clothes:

  • Buy them early in your pregnancy – all of our maternity clothes are designed specifically to accommodate your growing belly and body.
  • Buy your maternity clothes in your pre pregnancy size as your basic proportions remain the same and good quality maternity clothes are designed with a bit of extra space for your growing belly.
  • Buy bottoms with generous elasticated waist panels or below the belly style waistbands that are designed to be comfortable for your growing belly.
  • Get a good pair of maternity jeans.  It is worth spending a bit more on quality jeans to get the most comfortable fit and they can be easily dressed up or down.  They are great to wear after you give birth too.
  • Get a good fitting maternity bra.  HOTmilk recommend you purchase a good bra around 12-14 weeks and then again at around 36 weeks.  No underwire is best for pregnant women – it is the most comfortable and it prevents blocked milk ducts later on.
