Most Wantedis a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 fashion and beauty finds on their current wish list.
I'm really excited to be sharing this week's product picks from not one but two stylish ladies at team Who What Wear who are both currently pregnant. Christine Najjar Guida (pictured right) already has one little boy, so I'd consider her somewhat of a pro when it comes to pregnancy style and where to shop for maternity essentials. Jessica Zelvin Schwartz (pictured left) is due to have her girl any day now, so she, too, has had plenty of time (a full nine months, to be exact!) to learn how to dress her baby bump with both style and comfort in mind. Many of their recommendations are from some of the usual suspects, such as H&M, Shopbop, ASOS, Gap, Nordstrom, and Free People, and—exciting for those of us who are not with child—many are also not specifically maternity items.
A silhouette that has become the holy grail for pregnant dressing is the fitted midi dress. They are super flattering on the bump and don’t require purchasing a maternity-specific piece. This one is great for layering with a leather jacket or blazer.
One thing I quickly learned when I became pregnant is that maternity jeans are a must. Even before I was showing, I was uncomfortable in all of my jeans. This straight-leg pair has definitely done the trick.
When I’m not pregnant, I live in turtleneck bodysuits during cooler months, layering them under everything from skirts to high-waisted jeans. I needed to find a replacement and have been wearing these ASOS tops for months.
A worthy investment during pregnancy is a good pair of white sneakers. I've worn them a ton during the past nine months when I didn’t feel like putting on heels, and I know they will still get plenty of use afterward.
One of the first things to change when I got pregnant was my bra size, and it has continued to change throughout my entire pregnancy. At a point, anything with underwire seemed unthinkable, but I still needed support. Enter this thick-strap, seamless bralette from Gap. Disclaimer: It also works as the ideal WFH bra option, whether you're pregnant or not.
I am always searching for new blazers because they are one of the most versatile and maternity-friendly pieces that I've constantly reached for throughout my pregnancy. I love this soft-blush color and plan to wear it through the summer over dresses.
