Three Women On How They Learned to Dress for Pregnancy

When it comes to your body, abrupt changes are startling no matter what. Wardrobes exist as a tight ecosystem of sorts, where pieces must work together to make outfits happen over and over again. When something is off, the whole team feels it.

Now imagine that the change is a human growing inside of you, which means that your hormones are setting off weird and cool reactions you weren’t even prepared for. Your boobs get big and your stomach grows and your appendages expand. And that’s just the start. (I have no idea what I am talking about by the way. I am but a messenger of what my friends who have had or are having babies told me.) How do you dress for this? Ah, well, funny you should ask because I asked three pregnant women who work in fashion that exact same question.
