The Do’s and Don’ts of Maternity Clothing
Whether you are shopping for maternity dresses online, buying them from brick-and-mortar stores, or borrowing clothes, here are some tips for finding the best clothes.
- Don’t Sacrifice Style for Comfort
Gone are the days when women had to make do with tent-like clothes when pregnant. At Mother Bee Maternity, we have a huge range of stylish, affordable maternity clothing. You can put together a maternity wardrobe that includes a few pairs of pants, leggings, and skirts that can be mixed and matched with maternity tops. You can also invest in a few maternity dresses that can be worn with a jacket and accessorized for formal and casual events.
- Don’t Sacrifice Comfort for Style Either
Tight clothes can create plenty of problems. They reduce blood circulation and can cause pain. Tight clothing may even lead to yeast infections. When buying undergarments, choose bras with extra padding and no underwire. Similarly, stiff jeans make it difficult for women to move around during pregnancy. Over-the-belly yoga pants are perfect and can be worn throughout pregnancy.
- Do Choose Fabrics Wisely
Maternity clothes should be made from breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, and rayon. Choose fabrics that stretch with your body as it changes. If you live in a hot, humid place, choose materials that absorb moisture and dry quickly. Remember to read labels to ensure your maternity dresses aren’t treated with formaldehyde, as it can be dangerous to pregnant women. Polyester is also a bad choice for maternity clothing,
- Do Buy Clothes That Offer Back Support
Back support may not be a priority during the initial stages of pregnancy but becomes very important as your growing baby puts more pressure on your back. Choose undergarments that have high back support or buy bellybands. Bellybands can help you wear some of your pre-pregnancy clothes comfortably while relieving lower back pain. They also provide an extra lift for your belly.
