Loungewear For Pregnancy And Beyond

During the first few months of pregnancy, many of you will be enticed by the pretty floral dresses, elasticated waisted jeans and figure skimming jackets.

A further three months down the line, and dressing your bump is much harder. The key factor in any clothes purchase is comfort. Which brings us to 'loungewear'.

A fairly new category to retail sites, loungewear brings together soft and comfortable trousers (think yoga pants and luxurious leggings) and classic vest tops and t-shirts. These basics are designed to allow you to relax at home in comfort, and their flexibility means they'll be suitable post-pregnancy too.

This Maternity 3-piece loungeset (Verbaudet, £45) on the right is a chic departure from the velour tracksuits that became so popular in the late nineties.
