Tokyo Maternity Fashion – advice from stylish mums-to-be on the streets of Tokyo!

New series on Tokyo Maternity Fashion!

Traditionally maternity wear in Japan has been quite conservative (just go and look at the maternity wear section in any Akachan Honpo or shopping center in Japan and you will see what I mean!). However, in recent years a trend has been growing among expecting Japanese mothers for more stylish clothing that is both flattering and elegant. It is not easy to find this stylish maternity wear in Japan though, as I experienced first-hand last year! I luckily found what I was looking for at H&M, which I blogged about previously here. However I am still curious about where Japanese mums-to-be shop, especially as I see so many stylish pregnant women out and about in Tokyo!

So, I decided to hit the streets of Tokyo and ask these stylish mums-to-be about their favourite places to shop, their secrets for finding maternity wear in Japan, their style, and their advice for other expecting mums!

Stay tuned for our first interview tomorrow morning with 2nd-time mum-to-be Ai Erikawa!

TOKYOマタニティファッション ステキママからのファッションアドバイス

TOKYOマタニティファッションの新シリーズ!

日本のマタニティファッションは、海外に比べるとかなり地味(赤ちゃん本舗やショッピングセンターをみれば一目瞭然!)。
とはいえ、最近では妊娠中でもおしゃれを楽しみたいというママ予備軍が増えてきているのも事実。
でも、残念ながら海外のようなスタイリッシュなマタニティウェアを日本で見つけるのは至難の技。
私自身も去年、とても苦労したし。。。
前にブログで紹介した通り、H&Mで、お気に入りを見つけることができたけれど、
未だに日本人の妊娠中のママたちがどこでお買い物をしているのかとても興味がある。
だって最近、街でとてもファッショナブルな妊婦さんたちを見かけることが多くなったから!

なので、TOKYOで見かけたおしゃれなマタニティファッションのママたちに、
直接インタビューして聞いちゃうことにしました!
オススメのお店や、お気に入りのブランドはもちろん、彼女たちが日本でマタニティウェアを見つける秘策まで、
色々アドバイスをもらっちゃいますo

明日の朝、2回目の妊娠中というエリカワアキさんへのインタビューをアップするので、是非お楽しみに!

    I am loving the fact that you are doing some posts in both English and Japanese. From a Japanese language study standpoint, it is great for me! Also, I would suspect it is widening your audience potential as well. You keep rocking, Kate! Regarding the topic of this post, I have been curious where these stylish pregnant women have been shopping. You are revealing a mystery to me.
