Pregnant during the summer // my maternity style

 

There is something about being pregnant in the summer that evokes sympathy from total strangers. This time last year I was pregnant with our 4th baby, Lillian Giselle, due August 15th. Many people would say, “Oh, you must be so hot!” and, “How are you surviving being so huge in this heat?” When pregnant with our first three babes, I had avoided being the hugest while it was the hottest. But this time, I was pregnant during the summer, having an August baby, and I had to figure out a summer maternity style. There comes a point when the heat wins.

That is when I let my BLANQI Belly Support Tanktop go it alone.

Slipped on over my favorite bra and non-maternity skirts or shorts, I felt fresh and sleek. The cooling effect of BLANQI’s moisture-wicking finish works wonders. In the early weeks, I would wear the skirt waistband above my small bump. As weeks went by, I would wear the skirt waistband underneath it. I like to look pregnant, so I love that BLANQI defined my bump and gave me a flattering silhouette. Because the tanktop is opaque, there was no need to cover it up or layer over it. It really could go it alone.

I prefer to wear non-maternity styles I already own in my closet, so the support tanktop worked really well. I could keep wearing my pre-pregnancy skinny jeans and favorite ripped denim shorts with the BLANQI Belly Support Tanktop. The bottom band is designed to secure unbuttoned like a bellyband. It just made things easier to not have to worry about what to wear everyday as my belly grew.

Here I am with my husband and kids, less than 2 weeks before Lily arrived. Clearly I had entered the “very pregnant” stage! I still can’t believe this was a year ago this week and my belly was that big! I was squeezing myself into maxi dresses since they were just about the only thing that still fit. With lower summer necklines, I needed a support tank that wasn’t visible.

That’s when I opted for the Underbust Belly Support Tank.

I preferred to wear this style in nude underneath my dresses like a slip. The underbust style stayed hidden under my v-neck and scooped summer necklines. Even my most clingy and stretchy maxi dresses flowed freely. My Underbust Belly Support Tank smoothed everything out, including my popped bellybutton, and stayed in place when chasing after my three little beach babes.

Having a summer baby ended up being easier than expected. I drank a lot of water, put my feet up as often as I could, and wore my BLANQI’s day- and night!

xx, Valerie

Ways to wear // Highwaist Postpartum Support leggings

3-ways-to-style-blanqi-support-leggings

Who better to glam it up and show three different ways to wear our Highwaist Postpartum Support leggings than the Bond Girl herself, Irina of Bond Girl Glam.  We’ve featured her gorgeous maternity style before, and were thrilled to see her on-point postpartum look ( as to how she manages to remain so glam, that’s a whole other post in itself ;)).

3 Ways to Wear BLANQI Leggings | BondGirlGlam.com

“I loved wearing BLANQI during my pregnancy (see here and here), and I specifically remember their maternity support tanks making me feel so much better as my belly grew.  They make for great maternity basics that get a lot of use on their own as well as under clothes.  Now I’m loving their postpartum support leggings, so the BLANQI love affair continues…[the leggings] have a longer panel that helps keep your midsection nice and smooth, avoiding the possibility of muffin top; and if your birth story was like mine, the highwaist style also helps keep a C-section scar comfortable during recovery.  As with their tanks, the leggings are seamless, which is one of things I love about the brand.  I feel like they put a lot of “tech” and research into their supportwear.”

Look 1 // Date Night.  Who said chic couldn’t be comfy?  As hectic and exhausting as motherhood gets at times, the last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable, whether on a playdate or a real date.  Just slip on a blouse and blazer over your leggings for this subtly sexy look.

Look 2 // Weekend Vibe.  Super easy to put together, versatile, and oh-so-stylish.  Hit up the farmers market & Starbucks, then head on over to the nearest park – kick off your shoes, stretch out on the picnic blanket and soak up the sun.

7 ways to wear // BLANQI maternity support

We love seeing all these different ways to wear our BLANQI maternity support!  We always wanted to create something that was not only supportive, beautiful and high-quality, but pieces that were versatile – pieces that once you made the investment, you could wear everyday if you wanted to – dress them up, dress them down, go to yoga then slip on some boots for lunch with the girlfriends.  All the while being lifted, supported, and held in.  There’s nothing worse than splurging on that beautiful top you’ve been eyeing for the past 2 months, only to be able to wear it on special occasions.  You end up with a closet full of pretty, once-in-a-blue-moon kind of clothes.  That’s not what we need.  We need pieces that work for us, over and over again!  Keila of Mommy in the City shows how she wears her maternity support 7 different ways:

“Since having our second son Cristian my abdominal area was affected the most. I found it very hard finding support that I didn’t feel was suffocating and restricting to my range of motion postpartum. When I became pregnant with our baby girl my abdominal muscles were still tightening and I wanted something that would help smooth out my growing bump and allow me enough comfort to feel confident in my clothes.

When I received my Blanqi support tank I knew I had exactly what I needed. It provided the smoothening aspect I craved while my bump continues to grow and it gives me the added back support I find I need more of now that I’m running after my two toddlers!”

Sporting non-maternity jeans during pregnancy with the help of your BLANQI

We love the adorable Gaelyn and her sweet, and equally fashionable, little tot!  Though she embraces pregnancy and everything that comes with it, she prefers to stay in her non-maternity jeans as much as possible.  Gaelyn on her outfit: “These are not maternity, the secret is my BLANQI support tank that works 500 million times better than a belly band, so even at 30 weeks I can still wear non maternity.”  Check out more of Gaelyn’s tips on her blog My Corner View

5 simple steps to wearing non maternity clothes during pregnancy

BLANQI_maternity_support_tank_style

You love the clothes you wore before becoming pregnant, so why stop wearing them now?  As much as we embrace pregnancy and the changes that come along with it, venturing into the maternity section at your favorite department store can be overwhelming.  You’re changing, but your style isn’t.  Here are five simple steps that helped us extend our non-maternity wardrobe:

1) Short dresses?  Wear them as tunics paired with leggings or tanks (especially perfect if they’re made out of stretchy material as they’ll hug your curves beautifully)

2) His shirt.  Oversize is your best friend during pregnancy.  Wear something fitting on the bottom for a chic and modern look, or pair with his jeans, and roll them up for an instant (and comfy) boyfriend look.

3) Skinny belts.  Buckle between the bust and belly for a cute empire silhouette.  If traditional belts are too restrictive, try using a stretchy ribbon instead.

4) Maxi skirts.  That long skirt that drags on the floor when you wear it under the belly? Try wearing it over your belly instead and pair with a cami for an oh-so-cute boho getup.

5)  The BLANQI maternity supportwear tank.  A 3-in-1 transitioning tool, and a must-have in every mama-to-be’s closet.  So what does it do?  1)  Lifts and supports the belly 2) smoothes you out and keeps everything in, and 3) holds up your unbuttoned pre-pregnancy bottoms.  Top it off with you favorite shirt and you’re golden!

It doesn’t get any easier than that, and let’s face it, pregnancy is hard enough, so don’t complicate your wardrobe!
