Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ― Coco Chanel

When you go to a maternity clothing store, you might become overwhelmed buying maternity clothes for the first time. So, here are some pointers that will help you prevent making these common mistakes.

Forgetting Your Style

Forgetting Your Style

This is the biggest mistake a pregnant woman can make. You need to recognize the cut and the style of the clothes that will suit your figure the best. Don’t wear tailored maternity dresses. Choose a good maternity clothing store in the Philippines that will provide you with dresses best for your style.

Waiting Too Long To Buy Maternity Clothes

Don’t wait to start showing before you go visit a maternity clothing store. You can buy clothes right from the first trimester. After a month of becoming pregnant, even though you don’t start showing, you will still experience some changes in your body. It is best to avoid normal clothes during that time.

Buying All Your Maternity Clothes At Once

Don’t buy everything all at once. You can not predict how much weight you will gain in the second or the third trimester. It is best to buy one or two clothes every 2-3 weeks. Towards the end, your body will change more rapidly. But going to a maternity clothing store every few weeks can be a bigger challenge. So, find one in the Philippines that will help you shop online.

Being Close-Minded About Different Styles

Stay away from the tent look by purchasing clothes that will fit and delicately embrace your developing body. Search for clothes that give your body form and style. Fitted tops may really make you look more fit. Be brave and attempt new styles. You might enjoy the changes brought by them and see how something you’d never consider purchasing pre-pregnancy compliments your new shape now.

Wearing Your Regular Bra

If you are thinking of saving money by wearing normal bras, that is another fashion mistake. Your breasts are the first thing to change in your body. Trying to wear normal bras will hurt you more in the long run. Besides they will never look good if you try to wear them with your new maternity clothes. So, buy a good quality pair of maternity bras.

Maintaining fashion, especially during pregnancy is not an easy feat. So, keep these pointers in mind while visiting a maternity clothing store.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
