Maternity & Modesty: Featured Guest Blogger with Summer Albarcha

Hello readers! I am excited to welcome my first guest blogger, the talented, Summer Albarcha; behind the amazing fashion blog, Hipster Hijabis.

Maternity & Modesty?

First off I’m honored to collaborate with Nawal on her blog! Although I’m not married nor pregnant, I’ve had some maternity experience in watching my mother go through all 3 of my younger siblings pregnancies—and it I can tell that is definitely an emotionally draining and stressful experience, but ultimately worth it. Women start feeling uncomfortable and insecure about their new weight gain. Maternity clothes can also often be expensive and unappealing to new mommies. Today I’m going to talk about ways to not only look modest while pregnant but also fashionable. These are just a few tips I’ve put together, but I hope it will make walking out the house in the morning a more confident experience for all you new mommies!

1. Wear statement necklaces— This draws attention away from belly and look adorable with pretty much anything!

2. Wear loose baby doll dresses and leggings— Not only is this fashionable but also comfortable without having to worry about fixing so many layers.maternity fashion

3. For winter pregnancies, wear ponchos— They cover any insecurities and can be worn over a variety of tops from sweaters to knit tees to blouses.maternity fashion

4. Wear neck scarves! It will bring attention away from your belly and brighten up your face and outfit in general.maternity fashion

1. Wear belts only above your belly; wearing it under looks awkward and and will probably feel more awkward as it bring bad attention to the stomach.

2. Wearing skinny jeans just because they are cute might make you feel stiff and unrelaxed. Wear pants that are comfy and make your belly feel secure! Harem pants are definitely an option since they are in style and are probably the most comfortable fashion invention ever. Also try maxi skirts and dresses.

3. Lastly, stay true to your style! Mommies can still be cute and modest; it’s about finding what fits your body best.
