A young mother reveals her favourite pregnancy styles

It is true that every mum and dad cares about their children even before they are born. Sok Somphoasphalyka began to wear dresses and jeans that have loose waists since she became pregnant. She is a newly graduated student from the Department of Media and Communication of Royal University of Phnom Penh. It has been four months since becoming pregnant, and she is very worried about her child’s health and safety.

Besides wearing loose clothes, she walks slowly but surely and eats what is recommended because it is her first pregnancy. For her daily style, she mentioned that it depends on what kind of situation she might encounter.

“If I got out to market I would wear jeans with a loose blouse. If it’s a party or I am eating out, I will wear a stylish dress. It makes me look more like a modern mum.

“For shoes, I like to wear flat shoes in any situation. Wearing high heels can be dangerous during pregnancy. It can make me slip easily.”

Somphoasphalyka added that flat shoes have many styles and colours as well. Colourful shoes and styles go well with social outings and can add style to her dress.

“I like red, yellow, blue, light blue and navy,” she said.

Comfort and safety are the key things when it comes to pregnancy fashion tips. Phalyka added she would go with a dress that is not too long and not too short because it makes her look smaller.

“And at the same time cover my big tummy. Making me look like I’m not pregnant! But sometimes I also like to wear dresses that show my tummy too because it looks more like a motherhood style.”
