“When women get pregnant, society tends to make it feel like you hide, hide your sexy, and that you’re not sexy right now [but] you’ll get back there and I don’t believe in that sh*t,”
Brittny Brewer had a strong sense of style before becoming pregnant for the first time in 2017. But throughout her first two pregnancies, Brewer says she ended up “losing” herself fashion-wise. Instead of wearing streetwear-minded, trendy outfits, she found herself living in stretchy leggings and maternity clothes that had little in common with her pre-pregnancy aesthetic: “It took away who I was as a woman before.”
Now, seven months pregnant with her third child, Brewer is taking a different approach to how she dresses. Instead of spending money on clothes for mothers-to-be, she’s “going a size up” at regular fashion brands and retaining her personal style. “There’s a lot of ways you can still be comfortable and still be able to dress and feel sexy like you want to be,” she says.
