When people say that hindsight is a wonderful thing, I think they’re referring to maternity wardrobes. While I have a 2-year-old, so some time has passed since I was pregnant, I still remember agonising over what to wear and buying pieces that I couldn’t get much wear out of as my waistline expanded. (Sequin trousers, I’m looking at you.) I can tell you now with confidence that there are a few things you will probably regret buying when pregnant, and then there are pieces you’ll wear way beyond pregnancy. But my one rule is pretty simple when it comes to a maternity wardrobe: Try to find pieces you’ll be able to wear now and in the future sans bump. Also, it’s worth bearing in mind that while a knitted dress (or three) are very useful when pregnant, they’re not so handy if you’re breastfeeding.
