Everyone loves to come home in the evenings and slip on a comfortable outfit - enter loungewear. However, getting comfortable is especially important when you're pregnant, and Lucy Mecklenburgh came to the rescue for her fellow expectant mothers looking for the perfect cosy outfit. The former TOWIE star has been open about her pregnancy journey with fans and she took to social media to share her go-to maternity loungewear.
Showing off her blossoming baby bump, Lucy shared a picture of herself wearing a soft leopard print ensemble as she relaxed on her sofa with a fluffy brown blanket. She clearly had an abundance of questions from fans inquiring about her outfit, because she quickly followed up with another post that revealed her outfit was from high-street store Next. "I also agree it's so hard to find lovely maternity loungewear! This is soo soft & comfy." Luckily, both parts of the cosy set are still available to buy online, with the sweater costing £28 and the matching joggers costing £26. For the relaxing soft material, the total price tag of £54 is definitely worth the investment - baby or not, we want them!
However, it appears that the clothing was actually too good at keeping her warm, as she later revealed she was struggling with the temperature in her house. Alongside a picture of her air conditioning controller set to 18 degrees, she wrote: "I have every window open and I'm still hot! Air con in January it is!! I can't imagine being 8 months preggers in July/August!!"
The brunette beauty, 28, doesn't have long until she will welcome her little boy with fiance Ryan Thomas in February 2020. Fully prepared for the new arrival, she recently revealed that both herself and best pal Lydia Bright have prepared their hospital bags. The pair turned to fans to ask for advice on what to pack and received plenty of feedback, including a nursing bra, slippers, cooling face spray, mini toiletries, face wipes and a nursing pillow.

After the great suggestions, Lucy has tidied her house in preparation for when she brings the little boy home and has continued to ask followers for any crucial final purchases. "I really did underestimate how much stuff a tiny little baby needed! With just a few weeks left until his arrival my house looks like an Amazon depot! But it’s all very exciting now and I’m in full nesting mode! **Please comment below with any must have things I need to buy before his arrival," she wrote.
