Also, although my regular go-to stores like Loft, offer maternity items, they aren't in any of the locations near me. Same goes with Old Navy and Gap Maternity. Instead you have to shop the collection online only and since I'm new to all this, I didn't know what style or size to order. Argh!
It's been especially hard finding appropriate and fashionable clothes for the office and I really needed some more professional options. I tried on a few supposedly work-appropriate pants, but they all looked like yoga pants and were not professional enough.
Then came, Isabella Oliver, a hot maternity brand from Europe that makes stylish womenswear & maternity clothes designed in amazing fabrics that flatter your new pregnancy curves. Most of their selection features trendy and professional clothes that you'd buy normally, just made to accommodate pregnant bodies. The material feels rich and not like cheap spandex feeling moo moo throwaways found elsewhere. Isabella Oliver is also a favorite among celebrity bumps including Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani.
I also wore their Everyday Maternity Dress in dusk blue to an engagement party, but it also works well for work. It comes in a luxurious jersey material with a scoop neckline and gentle pleat detailing for a flattering silhouette. The dress is also on sale right now for $87.
