The time to buy a maternity dress is now.
That’s because the new, all-encompassing rule has come into effect on Monday.
And it means more of us have to make sure our outfits are up to scratch.
This isn’t a new thing, either.
The government has been tightening maternity clothing rules in the past few years.
In the past, it would take a couple of weeks to get maternity clothes approved for purchase, and then a month or two to receive them.
Now, it’s much quicker.
This is good news for women.
In many countries, women don’t have the luxury of being able to wear their own clothes, especially if they’re trying to get pregnant.
That means they’ll often wear a second piece of clothing, such as a maternity jacket, to hide the pregnancy belly.
This isn’t ideal, but it’s a necessity.
With all of the fuss, you’ll have to be sure to get a maternity skirt, a blouse, a jacket, and pants to cover the new rule.
These items will also have to fit into the standard size for women’s maternity clothing.
If you’re pregnant and have a lot of clothes on, this may not be such a bad idea.
As long as you don’t want to wear anything you don’ have on your body, the new rules should make things easier.
