Many mummies-to-be may think that buying maternity wear when they’re pregnant is a waste of money because these outfits hardly get any airtime after the baby is born. But just because you’re expecting a child doesn’t mean that you should go without new clothes this Chinese New Year.
Which is why we’ve hunted down for the best festive outfits that aren’t just maternity-friendly, but also stylish and versatile enough to be used in your post-partum days. Here are some of our favourites:
The Eliana Maxi Nursing Dress from Jump Eat Cry
This classy wine-coloured dress comes in a beautiful wine is stretchable, comfortable and is a great buy because it is nursing friendly. Mums who are planning to breastfeed will certainly get lots of use out of this. Pair with sparkly sandals for a casual look or with a pair of heels (post-partum) to dress it up.
S$49.90, available at Jump Eat Cry.
Blair Dress from Elohim by Sabrina Goh
This sophisticated dress is crafted from lightweight stretch cotton rayon, so it can easily accommodate a growing belly while remaining comfortable and functional enough for busy mamas to wear even after baby is born. It can be paired with flats and sneakers while pregnant or on casual weekends, or some classic pumps when you’re back to work.
