You think it’s rare, but more times than not men are buying maternity clothes for their spouse. Pregnancy is a special moment in a womens life that involves so many emotional changes. That’s why a supportive spouse is so crucial during these 9 months. So for starters, all the women reading this stop here and forward this to your spouse to give him some tips. As for the men, read closely. . .
STEP #1 MIMIC HER CURRENT WARDROBE
Look through her pre-pregnancy clothes to refresh your mind of her style. Pay attention to colors she prefers, the jean wash & fit. The last thing you want to do is to buy her something that she wouldn’t even wear.
STEP #2 TAKE NOTE OF HER PRE-PREGNANCY SIZE
Getting the right size is so important! Just because a women gains weight during her pregnancy doesn’t automatically mean she wears 4 sizes bigger. Look at her pre-pregnancy size and use that as a guide in choosing a perfect maternity size. Styles have been cut to allow for their changing pregnancy shape so if she wears a medium pre-pregnancy then go for a medium in maternity. It’s better to go on the safe side and if it doesn’t fit then she can always do an exchange. She’ll be sure to appreciate your efforts on getting the size pretty close, if not right on!
STEP #3 SPLURGE A LITTLE
Ok, I know what you’re thinking on this one. . “She’s only wearing maternity for 9 months!”. Yes, yes, I know. . . but it’s so much more than that! Imagine going without your clothes fitting for 9 months and having to resort to things that you wouldn’t normally wear. It would totally suck! Besides she’s your spouse and ultimately you want her to look good. So, spending a little more on the maternity jeans or a maternity dress that you know she’ll love is worth every penny.
STEP #4 SCORE WITH BASICS
Blacks, solids and dark jeans. . . you can never go wrong with maternity basics! During pregnancy, finding something to wear can be a challenge for a lot of women. So going with maternity basics will help her to get the most out of her maternity wardrobe since she’ll be able to mix and match more outfits.
STEP #5 LOOK FOR A SALE
Always, always look for a deal, especially when shopping online! If you haven’t come across any deals do a search on google for maternity coupon codes, maternity deals or maternity sale. Some places have special codes specifically for men. For example Mommy Appelseed has a Real Men discount that gives you 20% off your entire order plus FREE Gift Wrapping. Discount code: realmen
