"You're a bad mama jama"

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Doing my daily check of E! online, I came across this picture and thought, "oh no no no....."
Being pregnant is a beautiful thing. I have not gotten to that stage in my life yet but, you can look at a pregnant woman and see the gorgeous glow. While most celebrities try to still dress red carpet-ish and sexy, these women need to embrace their pregnancy and be proud to show off those extra curves in a good way.... not an unflattering way like Matt Damon's wife, Luciana. 

Highlight the joy of becoming a mother.

The not so stylish side of expecting in Hollywood....

While Ali Larter is glowing and happy, she is a little flashy with her fashion choices. 

Suggestion to Larter, choose more modest pieces.

Jodie Sweetin looks happy to be expecting but the fashion choices are not flattering for this mama.

Suggestions would be to ditch the unflattering fits and patterns. Horizontal stripes are not a friend to anyone who is sporting a baby bump.

The quirky singer, is thrilled to be expecting but smoking while pregnant is never in fashion. 

Being pregnant comes with a world of new changes, challenges and exciting new experiences. Looking good and showing off your baby bump can be easy with just a few easy fashion tips.

Pregnant looks good on ya.....
  • Show it off: You don't have to wear things that make you look like you're wearing a potato sack or garbage bag. Wear pieces that flatter you beautiful growing belly.

  •  Monochromatics: Darker colors are slimming. Choose colors that look good on you but in darker tones. This will help you look sleek and stylish. Keep in mind the less contrast you have the better. The outfit will look more put together. 

  • Layer it up: Layering pieces, like shawls, capes, cardigans and jackets, are great for mama's to be. The pieces break up the look while still keeping it chic. They can be used after pregnancy too.


  • Empire waist: The flattering fit is a good choice when pregnant and not. This fit, accentuates the tiniest part of you, your waist.  Wrap dresses are another great way to bring focus to your waist. Pair the look with tights, a scarf and boots for a cute winter mommy look. 

  • Lay low: Choose sensible low heels or flats. Don't try to wear 5 inch stilettos. When you are pregnant,  your feet swell, so putting more pressure on them won't help the situation.

Remember to keep it simple. Don't over do it by adding crazy patterns, unflattering fits or sky high heels. Being pregnant is a blessing and you need to show it off while looking fabulous in your in own skin. 

Remember, fashion is fun. It is uniquely you.
