Women are always on the look out for the most comfortable clothes when pregnant and it is important to know that wearing skirts during pregnancy is definitely safe; in fact it’s a great option.
Of course it’s important that the skirt is not too tight or it will cut off your circulation, but you’ll soon know how uncomfortable it is before it even gets to that stage.
Over the belly maternity skirt
If your regular skirts are starting to feel a little too snug, you can get yourself a maternity skirt. Pregnancy and maternity skirts are available with stretchy waistbands to accommodate a growing belly. Our guide to maternity clothing sizes recommends to purchase a skirt in your normal or pre-pregnancy size. You can also use some clever tricks that are usually applied to regular jeans or pants, to expand the buttons giving you a little bit of extra room.
Under the belly maternity skirt
Skirts can also be worn under the belly if you prefer. You can then wear a maternity belt for extra support if you need it.
What’s most important to be aware is that maternity skirts are designed to support women where they need it most. Whether you are looking for a maxi skirt, a pencil cut, something for work or even a more elegant look for a wedding or special event, there is a design that will suit you.
Benefits to wearing a skirt during pregnancy – the 3 C’s
- Comfort: Skirts are a comfortable choice during pregnancy because they are not restricting. Swelling and weight gain can cause pants or jeans to be a little too rigid in the legs and buttocks during pregnancy.
- Convenient: Skirts are also useful because they make using the bathroom multiple times every hour more convenient.
- Cool: Wearing a skirt allows for air circulation and keeps women cool
Yes, skirts are safe to wear during pregnancy. They come in a range of fabrics, styles, cuts and designs and are not only a fashionable item but a comfortable choice during pregnancy. There is no reason why pregnant women cannot wear skirts.
