During pregnancy, your body goes through a lot of amazing changes. As well as growing a bump to keep your growing baby safe, you may also find your breasts increase and your hips widen (which you’ll be grateful for when it comes to childbirth). Your body is very clever and will also store extra fat on your thighs, back and abdomen to ensure you have plenty of supplies to feed your baby. As a result of these body changes, keeping up with regular clothing trends can be a little tasking.
This article will give you the essential tips on how to find the right maternity clothes.
Avoid Synthetic Material
Your hormones are more active during pregnancy, which can lead to excessive sweating. Synthetic fabrics trap heat close to the skin that can cause overheating, making you uncomfortable. There is also the possibility of the body reacting to the synthetic materials, leading to rashes and inflammation.
The best materials during pregnancy are breathable materials like cotton, silk, linen, and wool. Cotton is comfortable to wear and can work in a wide range of environments.
Some unnatural fabrics to avoid are georgette, elastin, and chiffon.
Consult a Personal Stylist
You already know buying clothes during pregnancy can be a daunting task. The body parts grow so disproportionately that you won’t figure the right size easily. To skip the stress, you should talk to your stylist.
The stylist understands your fashion taste and preference for perfect clothing. They will dress you to your size and personality, even during pregnancy.
Not everyone can afford the luxury of a personal stylist. That’s where online styling sites come in. The online sites have professional stylists who will get to know you, then, provide the perfect clothing for you.
3. Wear Stretchable Clothes

You need maximum comfort during pregnancy. No matter how tight clothes might look great on you, they are not the ideal options. With time, you might find it hard to stretch, bend, or reach out for things. Tight clothes can also inhibit circulation, leading to swells and pain.
To stay comfortable all the time, wear clothes made from elastic materials that expand with the growing body parts.
Don’t Hide the Baby Bump
Don’t hide your baby bump- embrace it! You need to be comfortable in your pregnancy. You can find several modern wears that show the bump while still keeping you looking stylish.
To help you embrace the pregnancy, you should wear clothes that fit. You can also opt for clothes fastened with a drawstring, not a zipper or belt. The drawstring is easy to adjust to your convenience.
Dress in Layers
The active hormones during pregnancy mean that your body temperature keeps changing. To stay comfortable through the temperature changes, you should wear dresses in layers. If you get too warm, you can always shade away some clothes.
You should also invest in wraparounds to pair with tank tops or tunics for a trendy and classy look. Wraparounds make great nursing tops and dresses too once baby is born.
Wear Clean Clothes
You might find it a little tiresome to do some chores like laundry during pregnancy. Do not be tempted, though, to wear dirty clothes. This helps you avoid the risk of infections.
You have to take care of yourself during pregnancy as you prepare to take care of the baby. Having the right clothing keeps you comfortable and happier. Use the above-provided tips for the best clothing when expecting.
