Many women complain about the excessive price of maternity clothes, especially considering that they will be wearing them for a short period of time. Therefore, if you want to save, it is very important that before you start shopping you take into account a series of practical tips to have suitable Anti-Radiation Maternity Clothes, and that they serve you throughout your pregnancy, without breaking your budget:

Pregnant woman in her wardrobe

Examine your wardrobe to see what garments – dresses, blouses, oversized sweaters, stretch tops … – are designed loose enough that you can wear them despite the increased volume. Take the opportunity to remove all tight and fitted clothes, and store them separately, leaving only what you are going to use at hand.

Legging

They are an ideal option because they are comfortable and can be used both in autumn and winter with long sweaters, and in spring and summer with shirts and blouses. In addition, you can also wear them under dresses and short skirts, and take advantage of this to continue wearing short high-waisted dresses as long as your belly allows.

Sportswear for pregnant women

If you have sports pants with an elastic waist, they will help you during the first months of pregnancy to be comfortable at home, go for a walk, or exercise.

Loose long dresses

If you like them and they are part of your wardrobe you are in luck, because they are very comfortable, especially in summer, and allow you to continue with your   usual look without incurring extra expenses. In addition, they look great with sandals and low-heeled shoes, the most recommended footwear for pregnant women.

Pants and skirts

Your abdomen will grow gradually and they will become narrow as the gestation progresses. The pants and skirts for pregnant women have expandable waistbands that have several eyelets or lycra straps, but you can continue to use many of your pants and skirts thanks to adapters that expand the waist of these garments with an elastic strap that connects the button and the buttonhole, and that has a built-in piece of fabric that covers the open area and prevents the underwear from being seen. With a blouse, sweater or long blouse over it, nothing will be noticed.

Clothes that are not maternity but are suitable for pregnant women

It depends on the time of year and what is in fashion, but you can see that you have at your disposal various garments that are not intended for pregnant women, but that they can look perfectly, at least until the gestation is very advanced. They present an additional advantage, and that is that after childbirth these clothes will continue to come in handy until you regain your figure.

Borrow

Ask your sisters, sisters-in-law, and friends … Pregnant clothes usually stay new and surely some woman close to you who has already been pregnant has the same or similar size, and can lend you some clothes. The loan can also get you out of a bind if an engagement arises – like a wedding – and you don’t want to spend a fortune on a suit that you will probably never wear again.
