Being pregnant is no reason to miss the fun says spokesperson for BestMaternityCostumes.com as they publish list of homemade and store bought ideas for maternity costumes
Los Gatos, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2014 -- According to industry statistics released by The National Retail Federation, just over $1.2 billion is spent annually on adult costumes, the bulk around Halloween. It is estimated that 43% of Americans don a costume each year, participating in the annual Halloween festivities. These same statistics reveal the most popular costumes year in and out continue to be, in order, witches, pirates and vampires. However, according to Deirdra Smith, spokesperson for BestMaternityCostumes.com, a common problem many expectant mothers face is the tight, restrictive costumes.
Says Smith, "Just because you're pregnant shouldn't have to mean you can't participate in all the fun of Halloween, especially if you already have children who will be going out trick-or-treating on the big night. Pregnancy is no longer a factor barring women from enjoying life’s little pleasures including dressing up for Halloween. But, the key is finding comfortable, non-restrictive costumes you can have fun in." With that in mind, BestMaternityCostumes.com has published a list of Maternity Halloween Costumes Ideas for women to reference as they plan their costumes this year.
Smith confirms, referencing this year's list. "We have a number of really creative ideas on this year's list from the creepy and involved to the really simple and comfortable. It's really up to the individual as to how far they want to take it. For the working mom who wants something easy to dress up in for the office, we have some easy and comfortable ideas to consider such as maternity Halloween tee shirts or a bit more involved pirate queen costumes that tends to hide the belly a bit more. This is the kind of costume that’s loose and flexible. You can tie the sash above or below (or around) depending upon how much of your baby belly you want highlighted."
The list also has a traditional devil costume in a maternity size, too, but Smith says this version is much better suited for most pregnant forms. "The great thing about the devil’s costume is that it’s a simple dress and that won't pull in the wrong places. The partier can go heavy on the eye makeup to really get vampy, and find a deep or bright red lipstick to match the dress and horns."
The list is published on the website and has a number of ideas perfect for parties, trick or treating and office wear, as well as dressing up in matching outfits with other children. The list also has ideas which allow mothers to play up the belly. Smith concludes, "Many women come up with maternity costume ideas for Halloween that put emphasis on the baby bump. Still others go simple with maternity jeans and funny tee shirts. The important thing is to find something that makes you feel happy, and is comfortable."
