So you’re in your first trimester, and you’ve already developed a visible baby bump? Or maybe you’re far into your second trimester and simply aren’t ready to tell anybody yet. Whatever reason you have for wanting to keep your pregnancy a secret, we can help!

This article will cover six style tips that you can use to hide your pregnancy.

1. The “Front Tuck” With Low Waisted Pants

Wearing a boxy button-down shirt with the front tucked into your slacks or trousers is one of the best methods to cover your belly. This is also really beneficial for work!

Because the tucking-in causes the shirt to billow, it hides any bumps that could otherwise be seen above your pants, fooling the eye into believing it’s merely the shirt’s fabric.

If you decide to consider maternity pants/ jeans , opt for ones that are “under bump” so you can tuck your shirt in deeper, allowing it to billow over the band and hide your tummy!

2. Snazzy Patterns to Trick the Mind

Patterns are fantastic because they draw attention away from your figure.

In addition, wearing patterned clothing can ensure your belly looks far smaller than when you wear plain block colours.

3. Darker Colours for a Slimmer Look

Dark coloured outfits are slimming in general, but they mainly help by disguising the shadows created by your pregnant belly! So, the next time you’re looking for a quick, efficient way to hide your growing figure, remember - black is your best friend.

4. Fit and Flare Maternity Dresses For The Win

Fit and flare dresses are especially useful in the early stages of pregnancy since they add volume to the stomach region, concealing the belly.

Obviously, as you get larger, they won’t work, but they’ll look beautiful initially and are ideal for hiding an early pregnancy bulge!

Dresses also have the benefit of being quite comfy, which is perfect while you’re in your first trimester.

5. A Wardrobe Overhaul With Overalls

Although overalls aren’t for everyone, they’re a great way to cover a growing tummy!

These dungarees are an excellent method to hide your bump since they boast excess fabric around the belly region. In addition, the material used is generally pretty thick, so a little tucking in can make your belly look almost invisible.

6. Peplum Tops, Boxy Styles and Loose Flowy Fabrics

Tops with a little ruffle around the belly region, such as peplum tops, are a lifesaver. They blow out precisely where you want them to and are great when it comes to masking a bloated stomach.

The trick is to wear them with more fitted bottoms to avoid seeming bloated all over!

Bonus - pair these garments with cute maternity cardigans - and take your bump concealing tricks to the next level.
