Pink Blush Maternity

This is my last plus size maternity clothing blog post, considering I have already given birth to my son (there will be future posts regarding that). I took these pictures prior to giving birth but the last month has been so crazy that I didn’t get a chance to post this. I apologize for that, but if you’ve ever been in your last weeks of pregnancy and the first few weeks of taking care of a newborn, I’m sure you can understand.

Pink Blush carries straight sizes, plus sizes, straight size maternity, and plus size maternity. I’d say I’m sometimes on the higher end of a 3X, most definitely when it comes to dresses, and their size 3X fits me perfectly. They have great functional and trendy pieces regardless of your size.

This first dress is perfect for the winter weather. You could add a scarf, leggings or tights, and booties for a cute cool weather look. The floral is more of a fall/winter pattern because of the pretty burgundy background. It’s actually one of my favorite colors to wear right now. I did switch out the belt for one of my own because the belt that came with the dress was a little snug on me. But both belts are very similar in color. The fabric is soft and comfy. This dress would be a great staple in anyone’s closet!

I’ve already worn this hoodie a bunch of times because I love it so much! You can easily pair or with leggings or jeans for a casual look. The lace detail on top gives it a little interest while still allowing you the comfort of a hoodie. The length of this is really nice, even for post-pregnancy when you’re not back to your pre-pregnancy body. I love the blue color. I’d highly recommend this piece!

The last item is this long cardigan with sequin elbow patches. I’m a huge fan of adding some sparkle to an outfit. This is an unexpected way to throw some shine into your look. This cardigan gives serious winter comfort vibes while still being chic. This sweater is so comfortable and can be worn over a dress or with leggings/jeans and a tank top. Obviously, open front cardigans aren’t specific to maternity wear. So this is something you can wear pregnant or not. I really liked buying pieces while pregnant that I’d still be able to wear afterwards.

Maternity Photo Reveal!

I’m beyond overjoyed to be sharing these photos with all of you! About a month ago, I decided I wanted to take maternity pictures. I think partly because I wanted to remember this time of being pregnant and partly because I’ve come so far in accepting how my new pregnant body looks.

As a plus size woman, I found it difficult to be comfortable taking photos of myself. I believe that a large part of that insecurity is because we don’t see images of plus size pregnant women in the media or hear about them having healthy pregnancies. I feel that most of the time, being Plus Size and pregnant is expressed negatively or worse, not at all.

My goal since I was approximately 25 weeks pregnant, was to try to bring more visibility to plus size pregnancy. That was when I started taking “bump” pictures as often as I could. My journey through learning to love my body again has really given me a new sense of self. I hope that these pictures inspire others to do the same!

For this photo shoot, I’m wearing an absolutely gorgeous teal off-the-Shoulder jersey dress from Boutique By Agnes. She has an Etsy shop with beautiful gowns that can be customized to your color preference, style, and size. I’d highly recommend looking at her page to see the dresses she has to offer because they are amazing!

My photographer was incredible! Holden Moments really captured the nature vibe that I was looking for while being able to bring out my inner beauty. I’m so in love with these pictures and I know that my photographer, Grant, is responsible for how much I love them! If you’re in Central PA, check out his site!

Overall, my experience taking maternity photos was very special. I’d encourage everyone to take maternity photos so that you have the memory forever!
