Here are a few fashion tips for to-be-moms. Hope these tips help to-be-moms, feel better about this phase of life.
Maternity world has got fashionable since the last decade and today to-be-moms have a range of clothes to suit their body and style. With specific maternity clothes that have opened up to clothes getting readily available through online stores, dressing up during the nine months is not a complicated task.
A word of caution. Unless you have no issues to splurge during this phase, it is not required to invest in too many sets of expensive clothing that might be of usage until a few months.
Again you need to remember that if you buy too short tops or attire that cannot be easily lowered down with short necks you will have a problem when you want to breastfeed the baby later. Buy clothes that you are comfortable during your pregnancy. Buy as the phase progresses as you would be aware of your body size growth rather than buying all at once.
From western tops teamed with long flowing skirts to lengthy t-shirts to leggings that you are comfortable, there is an array of clothing options for all the moms-to-be. Even today majority of Indian women who are pregnant dress in loose fitting salwar kameez or saris.
Earlier women would be shy of the baby bump, especially when they are there in their third trimester. Today thanks to iconic influences of celebrities who love to pose for shutterbugs in different attires that projects their baby bump; maternity fashion has undergone a transformation from mere clothing.
It’s a statement which most women during pregnancy want to feel good about.
There are certain tips that you need to remember when you decide on the clothing in your wardrobe during pregnancy.
Do remember bodies of women do change during pregnancy and childbirth. Except for a few models and those who are adamant and busy getting back to shape immediately after childbirth, it is ideal to give oneself sometime, enjoy the chubby phase too and try to get back to a reasonable body shape and weight.
And do get back to normal clothes after about eight months to a year post pregnancy so that you know where exactly you need to shed weight.
Happy dressing up during those nine months.

My house-help asked excitedly, “I am going for wedding. Can you let me wear your red & black saree? To be honest I was stumped for a moment; I didn’t know what to say but I still said yes.
I lent a gorgeous saree to my house-help for a wedding in her family. Soon I stated getting questions if I would wear that saree again or if I was okay to be seen wearing the same saree my house-help was wearing?
We are all so conditioned to give our used clothes to our house-helps but are we okay to wear the clothes they were wearing?
A few days ago she came excitedly to me, “I am going for a family wedding. I want to wear your red & black saree, Ill wash and give it to you after the function. Please can you let me wear it?”
Beauty is a very clever, very evil capitalist tool. It traps those who have it into hanging on to it for dear life and those who don't into mutilating, torturing themselves to achieve the unachievable.
I recently wrote a piece about MP Shashi Tharoor’s tweet in which he had shared a pic with six women parliamentarians tagging them and saying “Who says the Lok Sabha isn’t an attractive place to work?”
There was a rash of comments on the post shared on Instagram, which ranged from “chill, it’s just a compliment” and “stop overthinking compliments”, to (worried) men lamenting about “these feminazi”.
Here’s my answer to all those comments.

Taking care of breastfeeding moms is critical to mother and child health. Here’s more on the UNICEF #ProudToFeed campaign to support all lactating new moms.
Breastfeeding is the birth right of a baby; a basic yet a powerful instinct that binds a mother to her child. UNICEF has launched a campaign in India for supporting all lactating new moms to breastfeed their babies exclusively for the first six months. It is a campaign which demands a change in the attitude and approach of society in general towards all lactating mothers.
There are many taboos in place such as ‘Cover Up’,’ no one should watch you’, ‘you are not extracting enough’, ‘you are not breastfeeding your baby, My God! You are a bad mother‘. The list of social taboos and the ramifications of being a ‘bad mother’ just because you are not lactating enough and your baby is going hungry, or you are not breastfeeding your baby altogether, goes on endlessly.

For the last two week, I have been on a self-imposed isolation amidst nature, at my farm, a few hours away from Bangalore. I’ve been living off ten sets of clothes during this time. And obviously, these are my oldest, most worn out and favourite ones.
This self-imposed exile reiterated how privileged most of us are. How blessed I am to have a tiny home away from home- a splendid getaway spot!
