Are you looking for maternity ski clothing or a pair of maternity ski pants?
Are you seeking ideas on what to wear in the snow when pregnant?
If you love the winter and love being out in the snow don’t let your pregnancy get in the way.
Whilst skiing and snowboarding may not be on the agenda as you head into your second and third trimester you can still have plenty of fun. You’ll need something waterproof and warm to get you through the snowy months.
Recommendations for maternity ski pants and a range of maternity ski wear
These are all big-belly-friendly and guaranteed to be comfortable during your pregnancy.
1. Waterproof windproof maternity ski pants
Consider buying yourself a pair of windproof ski pants. Partner with a maternity belt that helps to extend the button area giving your tummy room. There are plenty of varieties available. You can get a pair with a stretchy waist and suspenders or just the pants themselves.
One thing to consider too is how easy they are to get off when you need to go to the bathroom. Most snow pants have an elastic waist so you could possibly get away with regular snow pants a size up. Or bibbed snow pants with the front un-zipped a little bit. No one will see anything under your jumper and jacket.
2. Plus Sizes waterproof maternity snow pants
When buying maternity clothes, the general guide is to buy true to your size, however when you are looking for ski clothing consider plus-size pants.
Slider pants in an extended size offer extra width around the thighs, giving you just that bit of extra room. These pants also have an internal adjustable waist allowing you to make more room for your tummy too. Breathable, waterproof and insulated these are well worth looking into for a day in the snow.
3. Maternity thermal pants and tops
Another idea is to invest in a great pair of maternity thermal underwear. Partner these with some waterproof pants and you’ll be able to play in the snow without any problems. You could also get yourself a pair of maternity leggings to wear underneath waterproof pants too.
4. Ski boots, maternity ski jacket, gloves and hat
To further extend your maternity outfit, don’t forget about a good set of winter boots with fabulous traction. Ski boots, a jacket and a set of gloves, scarf and matching hat will ensure you remain warm, dry and protected.
You may also want to look into ice cleats. Ice cleats are a great solution for icy streets and trails. They practically fit any shoe and don’t fall off!
Is it safe to ski during pregnancy?
There are many women who have skied well into their pregnancies with significant baby bumps however general advice for those less experienced is to avoid it as your pregnancy continues. Your sense of balance diminishes and your weight is distributed differently so you could find yourself unable to remain on your feet. And no one wants a skiing accident. Even though your baby is very well protected in the uterus, you may injure yourself or get knocked by someone else.
