New Pregnancy Checklist: Shop til u Pop
It's too early to splash out on baby gear, but it's never too soon to do a little window shopping for yourself. Gone are the days when mou-mous and man-shirts were the only options for a swelly Betty. Babealicious stars like Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani and Madonna have turned bumps into a high fashion accessory. Doing your style research early is the yummy mummy's trick to preparing for the curves ahead.
First rule: while your changing body's a great excuse to experiment, don't suddenly try to dress like someone you're not. Remember, comfort is key. If you're looking for functional but style-conscious clothes, pop into 1 in the Oven. Celeb haunt ProMom Couture does sassy tees that make a statement. Destination Maternity is a great one-stop shop for a range of figure-flattering lines. Isabella Oliver offers sleek, designer fashion for the metropolitan mama. And Crave Maternity has a wide collection of everything from smarts like this sexy wrap dress to nighties to see you through delivery and beyond.
