Your body goes through a lot of changes during and even after your pregnancy. A few years back, women had to settle for baggy, ill-fitted clothing which nothing to make them happy in their bodies. Thankfully, today we have entire aisles dedicated to maternity clothing.
Unfortunately, these seemingly stretchy clothing are made of non-breathable synthetic materials. Studies have found that synthetic dyes used in clothing have traces of phthalates which impacts the reproduction system. Traces of highly toxic heavy metals and cancerous formaldehyde in dyes make maternity clothing from fast fashion brands a complete no. Especially, during pregnancy or if you are a lactating mother.
So, here are a few things to keep in mind while purchasing maternity clothing.
Yeah, stretchy synthetic fabric might seem like a convenient option to accommodate your growing body. Polyester fabric is essentially plastic has been shown to emit phytoestrogens which disrupts the body’s hormonal balance. Pregnancy, when your hormones are already raging a war against you, is the worst time to rock your polyester clothing.
The hormonal changes during your pregnancy also make your skin prone to sensitivity which is aggravated by non-breathable synthetic fabrics like nylon. It traps perspiration causing discomfort, foul body odor, and rashes.
Always. ALWAYS. Choose breathable cotton when it comes to maternity clothing. Cotton has a natural moisture-wicking property that absorbs sweat readily. Being hypoallergenic, cotton is the perfect choice to keep your sensitive pregnancy skin calm.
Colors play a significant role in enhancing your mood. Soothing shades of soft blue have been proven clinically to calm the heart rate and lower blood sugar. Pink on the other hand has an energizing effect on your mind. It is a great color for days you feel lazy.

Make sure you use gentle non-toxic detergent to wash your maternity clothes to maintain their color and safety.
