This bulletin just in from the Department of the Obvious: Women tend to have strong preferences when it comes to their personal style. Especially their clothes. Further bulletins as events warrant.
So yeah, we’ve all got very particular ideas about what we’d like to look like at almost any hour of the day. Save the precious sweat pant clad evening on the couch with your DVR or the quick workout in your old sorority t-shirt, I think it’s fair to say that we are disinterested in removing ourselves from the world of fashion for almost any length of time and this definitely applies to the 9 months a woman spends while being pregnant.
Now, I don’t know this from personal experience (I mean, yes, I do have a baby, but she’s furry and instead of giving birth, I simply picked her up from a Yorkshire terrier breeder south of the airport)

Yep, it seems that the modern woman is trading in the tent dress for maternity Sevens…and from what I hear, it’s not easy. Enter Amy Koch, author of BUMP IT UP: Transform Your Pregnancy into the Ultimate Style Statement.
Here’s the Q+DD on AK: She’s a NBC Trend Reporter, Vogue Style Expert, Twitter Mom Style Expert, Contributor to The New York Times, Town & Country, Travel + Leisure, INC., New York Observer and the Huffington Post and a mother of two. Her book, Bump it Up, promises to help “turn nine months of potential frump into mega maternity moxie” by offering style tips and tricks through each trimester and beyond. BONUS: the book includes sketches from today’s most popular fashion designers, including Nicole Miller, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, and Isaac Mizrahi.
In celebration of her super awesome book, Amy is on tour and will be making her way to the A on March 30th and all you gorgeous pregnantistas (and your friends) are invited!
