​​​​​​​What outfit you wear can make a big impact on how you feel during pregnancy.  No matter what your style, it is ​​​important for you to feel comfortable in your maternity clothing: 

  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Choose loose-fitting clothing for comfort.
  • Wear lighter-weight fabrics if you feel warmer during pregnancy
  • Avoid tight belts, bras, girdles, slacks, garters, and knee socks. Clothes that decrease circulation in the legs lead to varicose (enlarged) veins.
  • Find a bra that fits and provides good support to your breasts.
  • Buy a nursing bra if you plan to breastfeed your baby. Nursing bras are designed with flaps that unhook to allow easy access for breastfeeding.
  • Wear shoes that have a medium or low heel, provide firm support, and have a generally good fit.
  • Don’t wear high heels - it may result in an accident or an aching back.
