Take these handy tips to maternity shop



Published: Sat, August 27, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



NEW YORK (AP) -- Mothers-to-be want the same thing out of their clothes as other women -- they want to look good and feel better.

Maternity apparel maker Belly Basics offers tips on shopping in style for the next nine months and beyond:

UBuy seasonless separates that are interchangeable and can be worn around the house and dressed up with a simple accessory when necessary.

ULook for fabrics with stretch and those with simple cuts such as pull-on or side-zip pieces.

UNever underestimate the power of a great cashmere poncho, jeweled brooch or silk scarf to boost your look and spirit.

UDon't buy according to trimester; this will add to the cost of your overall maternity wardrobe.

UAvoid oversized garments or men's shirts; they're not the camouflage you think they are. Look for more fitted pieces.

UBuy clothes with two years of wear in mind. You may only "show" for six months but weight gained during pregnancy can take several months to come off after the baby's birth.
