Every season brings its own advantages and challenges when you’re pregnant. In this seasonal series we’ll give you ideas of what to wear, with inspiration from our shop. No matter what season or trimester you’re in, there’s bound to be something that suits your needs! Here’s a few ideas for your wardrobe when you’re pregnant or nursing in autumn.
While in nature all the green things are preparing to go dormant, life has only just begun inside you! If this is your first, you’ll probably be able to wear whatever you like, even though you’re looking forward to when your belly finally starts expanding. In the meantime you might already feel bloated, and want to avoid tight waistbands. You might be going up a cup size already so keep that in mind if you sew for this season.

The changing weather combined with your growing belly will make the transition to a new wardrobe inevitable.
