Like all first time moms-to-be, Eva Amurri Martino is throwing herself into baby preparation.

The expectant actress, who will welcome a baby girl in late summer, is also mastering another very valuable skill: how to style her changing silhouette.

“I’m learning how to dress for my new body shape,” Amurri Martino, 29, says in the May issue of O magazine, which spotlights actresses of all different body types as part of their ‘How to Love the Skin You’re In’ theme.

“People say you can wear your regular clothes, but it’s not true! Everything has to be longer, especially shirts.”

And just like the outfit she wore for the shoot — a white eyelet skirt from Elizabeth and James, a powder pink polka dot Sportsmax top and a lace jacket from Ann Taylor — Amurri Martino is all about accentuating her greatest asset.

“I prefer to wear things that are tight around my growing belly so I can show off my shape,” she explains.

Amurri Martino is a fan of ASOS’s maternity line (she loves everything from the “cool jeans” to the faux leather leggings!), but she has also found ways to still wear some of her favorite designers, including Tory Burch.

“Her pieces are feminine and pulled together, but not too girly,” she says.

Huge eye roll…. Wait till you have to dress up “the belly bump” after you give birth. That’s much more “fun to do”

Oh wait? Your claim to fame is being a spawn of a celebrity? Yea you’ll have a tummy tuck in the hospital before you come home.

Say Cheese on

So you dress in ugly clothes ?

Again with the “bump”? Way to keep up with the misogynistic terminology. Keep claiming to support women while, simultaneously, shaming and minimizing us, People Mag.

The dress is fine but not particular suitable to her.

Oh right the baby bump not the belly bump.

Pauline- With all due respect, you don’t speak for all women. I, for one, don’t find see the turn “baby bump” as being shaming us or minimizing it at all. I think it’s cute! I mean, when you think about it, the baby IS sort of making a bump in the belly. 🙂

Pauline, that’s a bit of an over-reaction, isn’t it? Misogynistic? Shaming? Don’t see any of that here…. Silly? Boring? Yeah, maybe so. I don’t like the whole “stretch my regular clothes across my belly” look, but everyone has their own look, and not everyone wants to wear the same clothes, pregnant or not, lol.

She’s a pretty young woman, and I wish her the best, but her style is less than gorgeous, to me. Duh, maybe it’s pointless because you aren’t pregnant, don’t expect to get pregnant, or expect to wear your SO’s shirts the whole pregnancy?

Um, how is calling it a “baby bump” mysoginistic terminology? I’m female & pregnant with baby #2 and I don’t find the term to be bothersome. Why do women tear at each other so much? That’s mysoginistic to me.
