Sweet Summer Baby Blues

Keep it cool this summer with a light and airy cotton maternity blouse.  It pairs sweetly with a simple jean skirt.  A pair of Preggers Leggings will help keep your legs feeling energized without adding a lot of extra hot material.  A pair of flat sandals and some matching accessories – in baby blue . . . or pink – will round out your outfit nicely.

Hey Preggers Mamas!  It’s time for Valentine’s Day, which probably means it’s time to dress up your bump for a romantic night out with your Valentine.  And if this little bundle-to-be is your first baby, it may be awhile before you have this kind of alone time. (Veteran mamas know what I’m talking about!) So, you’ll want to pull out all the stops for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day babymoon date.

You’re probably up-to-date in the latest nursery trends and the coolest baby gadgets, but you might have fallen away from reading about what looks are gracing the faces of fashion these days.  We get you!  Being a mama, and even a mama-to-be, has a way redirecting your attention.  But, leave it to Preggers, to help you choose the perfect makeup style for your last Valentine’s Day before motherhood increases your family size.  We think these trends would look beautiful on our Preggers mamas!

Lips

According to Elle.com, gloss is back for lips!  Matte lips had been the trend over the past few years, but beautiful shine is the new look for 2017.  Make sure you have some new beautiful glossy shades, or add a clear gloss over your current colors.

Liners

The latest liners for 2017 don’t extend the full length of the eye lid.  Only the center part of the lid is lined leaving an unfinished look.  Fully-lined eye lids are so 2016!

Another liner trend for 2017 carries over from lips – shine! Use a liquid liner for a gleaming, shiny look.

Mascara

I think I must be a boring mama when it comes to makeup because I’ve never thought of using anything but black mascara.  But, elle.com suggests that 2017 is the year for burgundy.  The key to using this red hue on your lashes, though, is to use a dark enough burgundy color that it only shows when it catches the light.

Shadows

Again with the glossy. Harpers Bazaar says that along with glossy lips and liners, glossy eye shadows are being seen on the lids of this year’s fashionistas.  Several brands actually make glossy shadows, but Harpers suggests you can get the same effect by sweeping some clear lip gloss over your normal shadows. Better make sure you have plenty of that lip gloss this year!

Blush

Gone are the days of a subtle blush.  In 2017, blush is meant to be seen.  So, load up your brushes and apply, apply, apply!  Whether you opt for a more obvious look or you’re not ready to dive all the way in and hold to a little subtle blending, choose colors that defiantly show up and accent your cheeks.

Nails

And for your nails, try painting on metallic colors, furthering that “things that shine” trend.

Color Trends

Are you ready for this?  Welcome back to the 1980s with blue eye shadow and colorful shades of blush.  Did anyone else think those colors would never make a reappearance?

Glitter

Yep.  Glitter is still here, so layer up your eyes, lips, cheeks and nails in glitter dust.

And don’t forget to throw on some Preggers legwear on your way out the door.  You’ll want your legs feeling great for your night on the town!

Goodness!  I can’t wait to try a few of these 2017 trends.  It’s a huge upgrade from the lovely look of baby spitup. 😉  Happy Valentine’s Day, Preggers mamas!

Has the crisp, fall air made it to your part of the world yet?  It has made it here and I am so happy to be able to pull out those fall fashions!  Is your maternity wardrobe ready for fall?  No fall maternity wardrobe would be truly complete without Preggers gradient compression hosiery and support products.  Try some of these styles on for size!

Our Preggers Trouser Socks are perfect for the working mama-to-be.  Whether your workplace is business casual or professional, these socks are a classy addition to your work outfit.  Wear a pair of them with your classic black maternity slacks and a high-waisted maternity blouse and you’ll be ready to tackle the business world.  The gradient compression will keep your legs feeling great all day and help your feet from getting too swollen.  Slip on a pair of your favorite heels and finish up the look with a long necklace and a cute coordinating bag.

Make our Preggers Leggings one of your go-to maternity fashion goals!  They are the perfect must-have for fall.  The thicker material will add a little warmth, while also keeping your legs feeling great.  Hold onto your favorite tunics from the summer and layer it with a patterned cardigan.  Add bright colored jewelry and a coordinating bag to give it some pop, and round out the look with your favorite pair of ankle boots.

A little extra support is always nice.  And, since your bump will continue growing, you’ll soon feel the need to add that extra support to your wardrobe – naturally!!  A Preggers Maternity Support Band discreetly gives that support under any outfit.  This fall, wear one under a cute pair of maternity jeans and some layered tunics or sweaters.  Finish up with a comfortable pair of flats and you’re ready for whatever this fall throws at you!  Perfectly comfortable.  Perfectly natural.

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and since it is traditionally the official kickoff to summer, we’ll use it as the official kickoff to your summer maternity wardrobe.  To me, there are three things that are most important when choosing items for a maternity wardrobe – especially a summer one.  And they are: 1) Comfort; 2) Style; and 3) Comfort!  Did you catch that?  Well, anyway, when you add one of our Preggers support garments or legwear to any outfit, you can be assured that you’ll experience comfort and style!  As well as the amazing added benefit of gradient compression – the only compression that is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases as it gets higher up the legs.  Gradient compression encourages blood flow, which helps with swelling, and generally relieves tired and achy legs leaving them feeling great!

So, let’s dive right in!

Ready for all those Memorial Day barbecues and picnics?  Start with a long tunic of a cool lightweight material.  Preggers Leggings are a perfect addition.  Lightweight and not overly hot, the leggings will add style, the all-important comfort, and the healthy benefits of gradient compression.  Keeping your feet uncovered and in a pair of cute sandals will feel great.  Just make sure they aren’t too restrictive for what could be a long day.  A patriotic manicure will round out your ensemble.

Another use for your Preggers Leggings can be under an adorable summer dress.  The leggings will keep your legs feeling great throughout all your summertime activities.  The light, breathable material will help keep you cool.  Paired with a fashionable maternity dress will add style to your little (or big!) bump.  This brown fringe bag completes the on-the-go summer outfit.

This is the accessory we think you’ll want to live in!  The Preggers Maternity Support Band is the perfect addition to any maternity outfit.  The seamless, super soft and stretchy garment expands to provide gentle support and comfort throughout pregnancy.  It helps to ease back discomfort and provides abdominal support.  And as your bump gets bigger, we know how important that is!  It can be worn under any outfit, but we think it will be especially nice under a super summer go-to: sleeveless tunic top and a pair of lightweight maternity shorts.  Throw on a pair of sandals and you’re ready to tackle summer!

The holiday season is officially upon us, which means that the hustle and bustle is about to get VERY real.  Soon you’ll be busy baking pies, planning the Thanksgiving menu and making plans to visit the family.  Your days may be long and full of family holiday fun.  Comfort is a must, but you’ll want to look your best, too.  A pair of Preggers Perfect in Pine Leggings or Tights will do just that.  The beautiful and sleek looking pine green color is truly elegant and holiday-esque, but more importantly, they’re comfortable and the true gradient compression will improve circulation and swelling and will keep your legs feeling energized.  They’re a “Perfect in Pine” addition to your holiday wardrobe.  Pair them with a comfortable knit khaki-colored maternity dress, a pair of tan short boots and a tired necklace and you’re ready for any Thanksgiving gathering.  You’ll be so thankful for your energized legs that you’ll be ready for a marathon Black Friday shopping trip . . . maybe!

On September 22, 1982, the United States began celebrating American Business Women’s Day.  The recognition was established by Congress to honor and reflect upon the accomplishments and contributions of women in the work force, as well as women business owners.

In the 1940s, when a large part of the American work force was called upon to serve in the military during World War II, America’s women took up the slack in the workplace.  Although, many of these women chose to return home at the end of the war, the numbers of women in the work force has steadily increased since then.  According to the US Department of Labor, American women make up 47% of today’s labor force with just under 59% of women ages 16 and over were either employed or looking for work.

But, perhaps one of the greatest strides that American women have made is the ability to be a successful career woman . . . and a mom!  And since mamas are what we’re all about, Preggers would like to salute all of our career moms this American Business Women’s Day, September 22.

We know that career mamas are super busy people – both pre-baby and post-baby, so let Preggers give you one less thing to worry about.  It’s not hard to put together a maternity ensemble that will keep you looking professional and together, and keep your legs healthy and feeling great.  Preggers hosiery will help keep your legs from swelling, as well as feeling tired and achy during the long work day.

Pair a simple, solid color maternity dress with a pair of Preggers Maternity Support Tights or Leggings.  Add a smart jacket or blazer and you’re in business.  Finish the look with a classic bag and simple accessories.  Business Professional!

you're-in-business

And when you’re back at work after baby, you might want to try some of our Preggers Support Products.  A Preggers Postpartum Support Band may be just the ticket to help your post baby body feel supported.  And if you’re nursing, don’t forget a Preggers Nursing Bra or Tank.  Both options have easy one-handed access for those pumping sessions at the office.

Wishing Preggesr mamas  and all women a Happy American Business Women’s Day!
