Model, writer, and actor Emily Ratajkowski has welcomed her first baby, Sylvester Apollo Bear

The 29-year-old was documenting her growing bump on social media throughout her pregnancy. She’s been real about the ups and downs, making comments such as: “Sometimes I feel like Winnie the Pooh in human form, other times like a fertility goddess with a juicy butt… Either way I know I’m going to miss this bump and those kicks very soon.”

Ratajkowski has carved a name for herself as someone with a strong sense of personal style – who could forget the mustard suit she wore to marry her now-husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in 2018?

Pregnancy hasn’t stopped Ratajkowski from expressing herself through fashion. Here are some maternity style lessons we can learn from her…

1

You Don’t Have to Wear Loose Clothes All the Time

Maternity clothes have something of a bad reputation for being loose and often teetering on the edge of dowdy. Ratajkowski took an alternative route, proving skintight clothes aren’t out of the question when your bump is growing.

Pregnant or not, what you wear should make you feel great – whether that means loose, flowing outfits or figure-hugging dresses.

Don’t Be Afraid to Show Off Your Bump

Too much maternity wear involves hiding your bump under swathes of material – which doesn’t have to be the case.

Pre-pregnancy, Ratajkowski’s go-to item was often a crop top, and she demonstrated you don’t have to lose your personal sense of style when your body is growing another human.

You Can Still Have Fun with Swimsuits

Ratajkowski’s fashion brand Inamorata initially launched with swimwear in 2017, and she’s made no secret of her love of intricate swimsuits.

Inamorata’s signature look involves a lot of string detailing and colorful patterns, and Ratajkowski modeled this throughout her pregnancy.

Bright Colors Are Your Friend

Don’t underestimate the power of fashion: it can boost your mood and make you feel confident when you might not be feeling your best.

Throughout pregnancy, Ratajkowski employed the age-old method of brightening up any day: with colorful clothes.

Whether it’s lime greens, bright oranges, or fiery reds, Ratajkowski doesn’t fade into the background with her fashion – and nor should she.
