Choosing your pregnancy clothes
A pregnant woman can afford to be flirtatious during her motherhood. Even being pregnant and although her body changes day by day, a woman can still be fashionable, dress well and perfectly. The future mother is spoiled for choice.
Essential maternity clothing
Jeans or maternity pants with elastic material and a band that fits on the stomach, to adapt as the pregnancy progresses. Also useful, high-waisted leggings can be worn during your nine months of pregnancy.
Trendy pregnancy dresses for pregnant women: they are very practical to dress whatever the season, and perfectly highlight your shape as a future mother.
Maternity tops specially designed for pregnant women. Opt for T-shirts, blouses or sweaters with a large belly, which will sublimate you in style.
In summer, also think about the maternity swimsuit, to show off your pretty curves at the beach. Adapt your lingerie to your weight gain during pregnancy, as well as to the size of your growing breasts. Also consider the breastfeeding bras which can be very practical while remaining aesthetic!
When should I wear maternity clothes?
During the first 3 months of pregnancy, the morphology does not change much. The belly rounds out very slightly, but it does not yet require any particular clothing adaptation: your usual outfits will often be more than enough.
On the other hand, the chest is already starting to change. The purchase of pregnancy bras quickly becomes essential. Prefer models with wide straps without underwiring which pleasantly support the chest without compressing it. To avoid making a mistake in the choice of size, do not hesitate to take a cup size above: the goal being, above all, to make you feel perfectly at ease.
For the third trimester, opt for ultra-comfortable maternity clothing
It is during the third trimester that the small inconveniences of pregnancy will be felt the most. Also, it is fundamental to choose maternity clothes in which you feel perfectly comfortable.
To relieve heavy legs, for example, avoid pants and shorts that are too tight. In terms of materials, opt for comfortable textiles that let the skin breathe and that do not cut off circulation: cotton, cashmere, natural fibres, linen, wool or even silk...
