I have been looking around in the shops for some maternity wear for myself and all I can see is stuff that is low cut. I need things that are higher, like halterneck style or the like.
I have a skin condition which makes my skin quite red and at the moment, being newly pregnant and still on hormones from the IVF, it's flaring up. The skin on my neck and chest (the area where a necklace would hang) is quite blotchy red at the moment and I usually look like I'm having an allergic reaction to something I can explain it away as something like Roseacea but it doesn't quite look like that. It looks like bad blushing which won't fade. The sun makes it worse and hot days.
Scarves are my best friend. Lots of ways to tie them providing I wear a higher cut top that hides most of my skin, the scarf does the rest, and there's heaps of pretty designs around, even for summer, stuff like silk is great.
Living in Australia, we've just headed into Spring so I'm going to be delivering at the end of summer.
Anyways, woe is me what maternity wear can I get that will help me? I'm thinking maybe blouses, but they'd look so old fashioned, but at least my poor skin will be protected from the sun and cover it a bit. It gets tiresome having to explain my skin over and over every time someone asks.
