When pregnant, it occurred to me that the roominess of some of the clothes make them a good option for mamas-to-be with the added bonus that you don’t have to pack them into storage when baby arrives.
So I thought it was worth browsing All Saints’ new arrivals for some bump-friendly picks.
This Balance Vest (above left) in oatmeal is a good example – the longer fit means no uncomfortable waist band straining at the bump and it’s a nice contemporary shape. Pair it with jeans and a white tshirt underneath – or not, if you’re feeling extremely brave! Â£80.
For a bump-skimming evening look, I like this jet black Alvianna Braces Vest (above) with unusualÂ beltedÂ leather shoulder straps. (Although underwear might prove an issue, unless you layered it.) Â£75.
Cardigans are a girl’s best friend when pregnant and the Aurelia Cardigan (above) livens things up with long ribbed sleeves and a pussy bow tie at the front. Plenty of room for growth. Â£80.
On a similar theme, I like theÂ Alandra Waistcoat (right) which, being sleeveless, would work well in the spring. The higher price tag of Â£140 is explained by the fact that it is 100% cashmere. Sizes 6-14, available in grey marl or doe marl.
Everything is available in sizes 6 to 14 direct from the All Saints website withÂ free UK shipping.
