what kinda cut of clothing will make me look more pregnant?

im 16 weeks pregnant and since the holidays are starting and there will be lots of pictures taken i want to make sure i look pregnant, not fat. are there any types of clothing or cuts of clothing that will emphasize my belly, but in a "she's definitely pregnant" way? i lost 35 lbs this year before getting pregnant and i want to look good in these holiday pictures.

  • I second the empire waists. Or you could get a cute maternity t-shirt like this. ;) I'm only joking a little bit because I think it's super cute.

  • So you want to show off your belly wear a very small maternity shirt I mean you can't look pregnant yet unless you are showing I mean if your tiny you can't just look pregnant just make sure you take lots of pics as the months go by. GL

  • My favorite tops when I was pregnant were the ones with side ruching to accentuate your growing belly and make you still look slim the other parts. For example, check out this shirt

  • something in a light color will show how big you are, dark colors hide the fact. something in a poncho style comes to mind, and they are comfortable....congrats!!!

  • Tighter maternity clothing will help.

  • Maternity tops that hug your torso. Not the long flowy type. Some women get bigger arms when pregnant, so if you get something that covers to your elbow, that will help hide that. =)

  • Anything stretchy and skin tight.
