Star style: Maternity Tights at

Spanx Maternity Shapewear

Having babies: it seems everyone’s at it at the moment. In the past week The Saturdays’ Rochelle and Coleen Rooney have both welcomed their new arrivals into the world, with a whole host of other stars expecting in the coming months, including Rochelle’s bandmate Frankie Sandford, Kim and Kanye, and of course the Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting the third in line to the throne in July (no pressure there, then).

Maternity wear in general can be a nightmare to find – ask any mum-to-be. The fact is, there’s such a limited choice that finding something that taps into current trends and doesn’t cost the earth is nigh on impossible – which is why the collection of maternity tights at MyTights could transform your pregnancy wardrobe options for good, whatever the occasion…

Work your Workwear like Kate
Classic maternity opaques to team with shift dresses and city shorts for the office can be hard to come by. The Duchess of Cambridge is our inspiration here – she always pulls off the working look impeccably, in spite of her hectic schedule. Take a leaf out of Kate’s book with the Trasparenze’s Perdue 70D Maternity Tights. These opaques come in three classic shades and feature a luxurious cotton body section that is filled to the hilt with stretchy Lycra, so it expands as you do with ease. A classic matte finish means these are a chic wardrobe addition that you won’t want to stop wearing once the baby arrives!

Cocktail (Virgin, Obviously) Capers à la Kim
If there was ever a mum that we’d expect to effortlessly combine pregnancy and partying, it was Kim Kardashian. The reality TV star hasn’t let her expanding middle stop her from being spotted at events left, right and centre – so follow her example and instead of skipping nights out with the girls, enjoy glamming up and hitting the town. For chic sheers to team with that classic LBD, you can’t do better than the Mama Spanx Maternity Tights. In a sheer 20 denier, they’ll look just like your pre-pregnancy sheers but have a specially designed tummy panel that will accommodate your expanding bump and provide support for both tummy and lower back – so even standing at the bar won’t cause you any problems! For a more purse friendly option, Trasparenze also do a sheer style, minus the support, that is slightly less expensive.

Style Up Your Sunday Brunch like Rochelle
Who ever said maternity hosiery can’t mix fashion and function?! The Pamela Mann Leopard Print Maternity Tights are fun fashion at its best. With an all over leopard print design, these will look super cute teamed with a baggy jumper dress and boots for brunch with the girls and lazy Sunday walks, for a style fashion aficionado Rochelle would be proud of.

That’s your maternity tights sorted – but what about other options?

New mum Rochelle also expressed her love for maternity shapewear from Spanx. Get your maternity shapewear from MyTights and banish all worries about your pregnancy body for good, safe in the knowledge that you look fabulous. The Spanx Power Mama features lower back support and shaping for your body that, thanks to the special bump panel, won’t squish you or your baby.

Hold Ups
Perfect for those who just can’t get maternity tights to sit quite right on their figure or for mummies-to-be in the summer months, opting for hold ups instead of tights immediately eliminates any fit or shape issues. These are ideal in the summer when higher temperatures can make being pregnant very uncomfortable, as they’ll keep you feeling cool and fresh. And they’ll help you to feel sexy and glamorous, too – every mum-to-be’s Holy Grail!

Foot Support
Support knee highs are a saving grace for tired, lethargic feet. If you’re sitting down all day in an office, swollen ankles can pose big problems and support socks will help to keep blood circulating around the body. Or for those on their feel all day, try footliners with padding on the balls of the feet to ease some of the pressure!

The wide range of hosiery, shapewear and socks options for expecting fashionistas mean you can get on with enjoying your special time – not worrying about your wardrobe. So whatever the occasion and whatever your needs, has got everything you need for a happy 9 months and beyond.
