We began in 1994 as two pregnant fashion executives who knew there had to be a simple solution to the universal challenge of remaining well dressed while pregnant. We packaged it in a little white box and called it The Pregnancy Survival Kit--a simple four-piece wardrobe consisting of the essentials. And with it, we changed the world of fashion.
Now we've written Pregnancy Chic: The Fashion Survival Guide. In it, we explore ways to get dressed without compromising your style (why would you wear something you wouldn't normally wear, just because you're pregnant?). We've included hundreds of firsthand tips discovered through trial and error, such as increasing your pregnancy wardrobe by extending the life of your pants with a simple rubber band, or wearing your husband's walking shorts with his woven belt (no notches--fits anyone!). Haven't you got better things to do than spend an hour in front of your closet picking out what to wear? With chapters on how to dress for work, casual and formal events, and even travel, we make it easy and affordable to look chic.
From your first doctor's visit right through to post-baby, we'll show you how it's done. Enjoy, be comfortable, and have fun! Jody & Cherie
