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.
