Hi Ashley! Thanks for talking to THE MOTHERSHOP! Let’s go…
What essentials would you recommend buying for the perfect maternity wardrobe?
Definitely a longline vest. I bought a few from H&M and wore them my entire pregnancy and then under tees and jumpers when I was breastfeeding. Some comfortable maternity jeans, nice underwear, and a cool pair of trainers as my feet definitely swelled up towards the end and shoes were so tight.
Which maternity and non-maternity brands did you wear when you were expecting?
The only real maternity pieces I invested in were jeans. With my first I bought some J Brand skinny jeans but with my second i stuck to the high street and found the H&M jeans were fantastic. Other than that I tended to just size up on clothes so a lot of them I still wear now just as more of an oversized look. 
Where or who did you get your maternity style inspiration from?
I always look to Pinterest when I get stuck for style inspiration. But mostly I wore the same things. I really missed not being able to tuck tees into my jeans though.
What did you learn from your first time dressing a bump to help second time round?
Comfort is key – that heartburn is a killer and you do not want to add tight clothes into the mix!

Is there anything more you think maternity brands could offer that they’re not doing right at the moment?
I think there’s so much more now even compared to when I was pregnant with Vivienne seven years ago. Even Zara has a maternity offering with a selection of styles that work with bumps.
