Why you should choose sportswear for maternity
Whether you exercise regularly or want to be more active during your pregnancy (which is great for your health as well as your baby's), choosing activewear designed for maternity is a great option and well worth the investment. Here are some reasons:
Keep you dry and cool
Staying dry, cool, and comfortable while you move your body in your activities is very important. As you know (especially in the summer) your body's core temperature rises, so choosing pregnancy-specific sportswear means that the materials used are the latest in fabric technology. Materials such as Polartec® or Bamboo fabrics help perspiration through the fabric and away from the skin, which helps maintain an average body temperature.
Comfort is key
Yoga pants and maternity pants provide great support at the top, stretching right over your stomach, allowing for maximum comfort and support during your favorite activities.
A pregnant body is a changing body
It is generally preferred to opt for garments that provide versatility and can be used throughout the process, such as a sleeveless maternity top, designed to cover the stomach from the early stages of pregnancy until the end of 9 months. Also, a high-support shirt that helps distribute the weight of the stomach, will improve your posture and promote a more comfortable exercise.
Why you should stay active during pregnancy
Regular exercise during pregnancy (and postpartum) is very beneficial for you and your baby.
The general guideline for pregnant women is to get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day. Exercising 3 or 4 days a week is also beneficial, the important thing is to stay active! It doesn't have to be in a gym, nor does it have to be excessive, it's about moving your body in a sustainable and healthy way for you and your future baby.
