Hey there! I’m so glad so many of you liked the workout from yesterday. Remember, it definitely isn’t only for pregnant ladies! It’s a great upper body strength workout that works all the main upper body muscles! Make sure you check it out if you haven’t.
Onto today’s post. I’m so excited to share it with you! I know I’ve mentioned it before, but maternity clothing has been difficult to purchase and is just not my favorite. Well, I should say, I just never felt my best in them. I couldn’t find ones that fit comfortable, some of them seem to be made for older women, and some just didn’t fit right! It’s been a struggle to dress my bump in a cute way. Thankfully, Pinkblush Maternity came to the rescue with cute maternity clothes!
A few weeks ago, I was in contact with Brandy from Pinkblush Maternity, and was offered my choice of three pieces of maternity clothes to review! I was so excited. I’ve looked at the website countless times and always wanted to order something, but it’s summer and there wasn’t a lot that I needed since I wasn’t working in an office environment where I needed to dress up. I loved that everything was stylish and super cute. My only problem was narrowing it down! I think I had 8 things in my cart when I was deciding.
The outfits arrived as I was in Deep Creek and I couldn’t wait to get home and try them on! I’ve actually worn all of them multiple times because they are that amazing. I wish I would have bought more earlier in my pregnancy, but now I’m just trying to make due with what I have.
I chose one cardigan wrap and two cute maternity dresses- one short and one maxi dress. I knew my baby shower was coming up, so I was hoping one dress would work for that, and our anniversary was another great reason to order a dress! The cardigan wrap was just too adorable to pass up.
Pinkblush Maternity Fashion Review:
1. Fuchsia Basic Maternity Maxi Dress (Small)
I love this maternity maxi dress. It is ridiculously comfortable and can be dressed up or down, and I’m pretty sure it will work when I’m not pregnant anymore! I paired it with a turquorise necklace and bracelets for some fun color. I am planning on wearing this one to my shower! The fabric is very soft, and it’s not clingy, which is perfect for summer. It is a bit long on me (I’m 5’6”) but perfect if I wore heels or wedges. I actually wore flip flops with it and just picked it up a bit when I walked so I didn’t trip over it.
I was not very impressed with this when I first received it. I had on a gray shirt and put it on over top and just didn’t know what to do with it! I put it away for a few days and then took it out and figured out how to wear it. I actually think this is one of my favorite tops now! It was perfect with the tank top, and I know I’ll be wearing it a lot in the next coming weeks! Best part about it- it can definitely be worn after I have her! The sleeves did confuse me a bit, but when you let it hang, it looks perfect! I paired it with some gold earrings and a gold necklace.
I wasn’t sure how this dress would fit when I first received it. I hate dresses that are too long, and was nervous this may be a bit too long. I put it on and was in love immediately! I wore it out for our anniversary and felt great in it. I was comfortable and the belt dressed it up a little bit. To be honest, I love anything that clinches above my bump so people actually know I’m pregnant I wore some pearl bracelets with this one.
My favorite part of receiving these outfits was that it made me feel good about myself again. It is very hard to grow out of all of my clothes, and be in the summer when I am already wearing yoga pants/shorts/t-shirts/tank tops. I just never look super cute because I don’t have to. I didn’t realize how much it was affecting my self esteem! Once I put these on and wore them, I felt like I looked cute again, and now just like a lazy pregnant lady I feel like most days
I’m very impressed with their material and how everything fits. I would say it all fits true to size pre-pregnancy. I was always a small before I got pregnant, and that’s what I ordered for all of these and they were perfect. I would also say that the pictures online of the clothes are very true to in person. I wasn’t surprised by anything when I got it, and after looking at the pictures again, I can see them fitting those models the same way they fit me.
Thank you Pinkblush Maternity for sending me these clothes to review!
