Now that you're pregnant...
you don't need to spend money on sportswear, since sports will be on hold for a while, right? Wrong! Staying active during your pregnancy does not harm at all. In fact, it offers many advantages. Mommies to be who exercise responsibly have fewer problems with pregnancy ailments, and sporty moms also recover faster from their delivery. And that is something we all want to sign up for. Of course, you should exercise responsibly during your pregnancy, and wear supportive and comfortable maternity sportswear. But what is a good maternity sports outfit, and what makes it so comfortable?
Maternity sportswear: sports pants and sports leggings
The key element of comfortable maternity sportswear? Extra elastic and moisture wicking material, which ensures optimal comfort. In addition, sportswear worn during pregnancy should adequately support your growing baby belly. Elastic sports leggings with a high waist that completely cover your belly are ideal for this. In addition, sports pants for mothers-to-be often have a cuff at the waist that can grow with your belly. Compression shorts can also be extremely comfortable, as they give your legs plenty of freedom of movement and they keep you cool during intense workouts on hot days. Do you suffer from swelling due to varicose veins in the vulvar area? No worries, because compression shorts offer a solution.
Maternity sportswear: sports bras and sports tops
In addition, sports bras with wide straps can also give you extra support while exercising. Also, a good sports bra that you can wear during your pregnancy should have enough coverage on both sides, to prevent an uncomfortable peek-a-boo. In addition to sports bras, long and stretchy sports tops that fit completely over the belly are recommended for pregnant women. In particular, sports tops with a close fit support your growing belly. Fair is fair: all the support you can get (yes, both mentally and physically) is welcome.
