1. Nigerian maternity gowns
Dresses have always been the most popular type of maternity clothing: they are very comfortable to wear even on the late stages of the pregnancy, but at the same time your maternity dress can look as casual or sophisticated as you want it to be.
Right now you can find African print maternity dresses for any occasion. Whether you want a fun and flowing knee-length dress for walking around the city and running errands, or a beautiful long gown for attending your friend’s wedding, you can easily find just the right style.
A great choice of clothing during pregnancy are Ghanaian maternity dresses, which are available in every shape and print available. Ghanaian gowns for pregnant ladies always have a relaxed fit so you can not worry about the dress being too tight for your baby bump.
2. Maternity bandage dress
If you’re not ready to give up your favorite bandage dress style during your pregnancy, you will be happy to know that you don’t have to, as there are plenty of bandage maternity gowns designed specifically for the constantly growing belly of a pregnant lady.
This choice of pregnancy wear is rather different from the Nigerian traditional maternity dresses you’re used to seeing, but if you’re not afraid to take a fashion risk and want to showcase your beautiful baby bump to the whole world, this is the style you should go for.
3. Ankara maternity tops
If you’re looking for a more versatile type of maternity wear, the one you can pair with any of your favorite bottoms, a maternity top with Ankara print is the best choice you can make. Nigerian maternity tops usually have a free fit and don’t feel too tight or restricting. Peplum tops are a very popular choice for maternity wear.
Finding the right combination for your Ankara pregnancy top couldn’t be easier: you can even get away with wearing trousers, skirts, and leggings you owned before becoming pregnant, given that they have a stretching waist that won’t make your baby bump feel uncomfortable.
4. The best Nigerian maternity looks
Nigerian fashion for pregnant women is so diverse that you can always find inspiration for creating your one-of-a-kind maternity outfit simply by looking at the photos of pregnant Nigerian ladies. Here are five of our favorite pregnancy looks.
This fashionista decided to go for a dress that would look pretty demure and understated if it wasn’t for the slit that reveals her leg and greatly elevates the style of the dress.
Who said shorts weren’t a good option for pregnant women? If you can’t live without shorts, you can easily incorporate them into your maternity wear by pairing them with a neutral top and flat sandals.
In case you are looking for a maternity style that you’ll be able to wear even after you give birth, go for a maternity dress in a classic flare cut with a very flattering shape and striking Ankara print.
A bell-shaped maternity gown is, perhaps, the most practical choice you can make. You can wear it from the first stages of the pregnancy up until you finally become a mommy, and even after that.
A little black dress is a must-have item in every woman’s wardrobe, and if you’re a fan of this style, you shouldn’t make an exception for your pregnancy – rock your LBD like never before!
