Pregnancy period brings about lot of changes in a woman’s body. As the woman puts on weight finding the right pregnancy clothes can be a challenge. The pregnancy clothes should not only be comfortable but also be stylish and should be able to minimize the growing waistline of the woman.
Pregnancy clothes can be tailored specially to meet the requirements of pregnancy. These clothes come in different styles to cater to the needs, style demands, body types and sizes of different women. Pregnant women have greater choice with the availability of stylish blouses, pants, jeans, skirts and trendy tops.
During the first trimester pregnant women can continue to wear all the clothes that they used to wear in the pre pregnancy days. However it is advisable to wear pregnancy clothes that are lose and are not too tight or form fitting as this may be harmful for the baby. Pregnancy clothes during the first trimester may include skirts and pants that have elastic waists. Dresses without waistline and some oversized clothes can also look good as maternity wear.
Proper maternity clothes need to be worn from the fifth month. It is important to select pregnancy clothes that are light and airy and fabrics that are not too heavy. Comfort is extremely important while selecting clothes and this applies for maternity underwear as well. Many women prefer to wear cotton bikinis a few sizes larger as they are extremely comfortable. Maternity bras can be worn particularly since many women tend to experience breast tenderness. A maternity bra is made of material that stretches and so it expands as the bust line increases. This provides the much needed comfort.
It is advisable for women to determine what they need to buy before they go out shopping for their pregnancy clothes. Many women also borrow some of the maternity clothes from relatives or friends. In fact it is advisable to do that since maternity clothes are worn only for a short period of time and it often doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money in buying these clothes. Some choices of pregnancy clothes include maternity jeans that come in styles like boot cut, Capri, cropped, flare and relaxed fit style. Mid belly and classic belly style jeans can be worn almost through the entire pregnancy period.
While buying pregnancy clothes ensure that you don’t buy them too soon into the pregnancy period. Otherwise it may be too big to wear in the initial days of the period and too small to wear later when you put on weight. Wearing clothes in a single color can look really good. Using a scarf, sweater or some jewelry can really add to the overall look.
Pregnancy results in higher metabolic rate so many women feel extremely hot. It is therefore advisable to go in for a layered look. This can allow women to peel off clothes if it is too hot. However too many layers can end up looking rather sloppy. Accessories can be used to give a new look to the outfit. Some bright jewelry, funky shoes and a lovely handbag can add so much more to the pregnancy clothes. A colorful scarf can also look lovely.
