Baby Bump Hosiery: Our Picks!

Hilaria Baldwin & Fearne Cotton

Hilaria Baldwin & Fearne Cotton

Being pregnant isn’t always much fun. As well as the aches, the pains and sleepless nights, it also means you may no longer be able to fit into your favourite hosiery. But, as a number of expecting celebs have been showing us recently, being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style. With MyTights dedicated to sourcing hosiery to suit every size and shape (bumps included), we have a fabulous selection of maternity hosiery for you to choose from. Showing us how it’s done, Radio 1 presenter, Fearne Cotton, and Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria have both been spotted in maternity opaques in the past week. Gracefully covering her baby bump, Fearne was wearing a long plaid frock paired and sensible flats flats, whilst Hilaria was spotted with her husband and daughter wearing a black coat, black leggings, and boots – finished off with a bright scarf for a pop of colour. It’s obvious that these two ladies are blossoming beautifully – not just in their pregnancy but with their style choices to boot.

Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights

Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights

MyTights knows that finding maternity clothes that don’t make you look frumpy is difficult, but the Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights buck the trend. At 70 denier, these opaque tights are perfect to wear if you’re carrying across the colder months. With the current unpredictable weather, these tights are a go-to pair to wear to work or simply for just a stroll around town. We know that comfort is the top priority when looking for maternity clothes so this style is made with a flat seam and stretchy Lycra fiber that grows with your bump. Even better, the reinforced toe and heel means that these will last you your entire maternity period…and maybe your next! Trasparenze 20D Maternity TightsSince the warmer summer months are looming (fingers crossed), why not stock up on a few sheer maternity tights as well? At only £11.00, the Trasparenze 20D Maternity Tights are a steal. Like the 70D style, these are designed to accommodate your growing tummy and support your bump without harming your little sprog. These are also made with a reinforced heel and toe to add extra durability so you’ll never have to worry laddered tights because let’s face it, you have enough on your plate already! With a slight sheen and the choice of two colours, these are the perfect way to an elegant expectant look!

Maternity Tights: Fearne Cotton Shows Us How!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

As far as women go, Fearne Cotton is one of our favourites. Announcing earlier this month that she’s leaving her post on Radio 1 after ten years in the hotseat, it’s taken us quite some time to come to terms with the revelation. What are we going to do without our daily dose of the DJ who puts the effortless into cool? However, it doesn’t look like Fearne’s about to drop off our radar any time soon, having been papped almost daily since her big revelation. Of course, we all know the reason behind her departure is a happy one – she’s pregnant with her second child! Good on you, Fearne! As well as continuing to showcase a quirky style, one thing we’ve noticed about her recent outfits is that each and every one of them has featured a pair of tights. While Fearne’s kept tight-lipped about when her due date is, we would imagine she’s treated herself to a few pairs of maternity tights to support her growing bump. As a high-profile celebrity mum to be, we thought this was a great excuse to round up some of our favourite maternity tights on offer at MyTights.com!

Now, it’s not uncommon for women to be slightly dubious about wearing maternity tights during their term, but you needn’t worry. Maternity tights are a completely safe option that boost comfort and provide some much needed support for your bump, particularly in the later stages of your pregnancy. Many of them are made with a panel that sits beneath the belly to reduce the pressure on your lower back. Made from nylon, maternity tights will grow and stretch as your baby does, so there’s no need to keep replacing as your bump grows outwards. If you like the idea of maternity tights, the good news is that MyTights.com have searched high and low across all of the leading brands for the very best styles. Often associated with being frumpy and unflattering, our selection will keep you bang on trend and make your expectant months a stylish affair.

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

1) Mama Spanx Maternity Tights - the ultimate in maternity tights from everyone’s favourite shapewear brand, these 20 denier tights have a high-waisted panel to offer you much-need support before your baby is born. Appearing like regular tights with their slight sheen finish, these maternity tights come with a special panel that sits beneath the tummy, offering support to the lower back and making you feel a little more confident about your growing frame. Smoothing over the bump in a completely safe way, choose between black and nude.

2) Trasparenze 20 Denier Maternity Tights – another 20 denier offering but a little more affordable than the Spanx tights, these maternity sheers are made with a stretchy and generous fabric that will expand with your growing sprog. Made using natural cotton to ensure you don’t overheat, the flat lying waistband will rest comfortably over your bump without showing through tighter clothing styles. Beats a pair of unflattering trousers, right?

3) Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights – great if your expectant months span across the winter, these 70 denier maternity tights offer a similar support but with a thicker denier to keep you feeling lovely and snug.
