Do you feel more stylish when pregnant?

I somehow seem to dress so much more nicely and generally look more stylish when I've got a bump. I don't buy much maternity-wise, but even in my "knockabout" clothes I think I look sleeker and more chic.

Is it just me? Do you feel like a pregnancy fashion model, or do you feel more stylish when you're not pregnant?

I definitely make more of an effort to put myself together and I really love love love having a bump. It's the only time I ever have decent curves So I guess I'd say more stylish yes.

I think I look better pregnant. I lose ten to fifteen lbs in the beginning of pregnancy. so I am thinner than normal everywhere except my belly of course. I love the look of my bump too.

Re: Do you feel more stylish when pregnant?

I tend to buy more trendy clothes while I am prego because they won't go out of style before I am done wearing them. Plus, I feel like more people are looking at me then too so I like to look decent.

Depends on clothes. I have some that make me feel like I'm more stylish either way.

Re: Do you feel more stylish when pregnant?

I was looking for the 'neither' option because one thing I'm not is 'stylish'. But then I realized that 'more stylish' doesn't mean I'm stylish.. just more than otherwise..

so anyways.. definitely when I'm not pregnant. I thought I did okay, but then I saw some of the pregnant moms at church and realized I'm dumpy. There are these women with these cute baby bumps peeking out of svelte dresses wearing knee boots.. they look stylish. They look awesome. Quite frankly, I don't want them to notice me.

Now.. on a day to day basis? I think I do okay but I think I do okay when I'm not pregnant too... so I don't think it's more.

I said other because I never look or feel stylish.
