3 Benefits of Using Spandex for Maternity Clothes, Manhattan, New York

Pregnancy causes your body to change in many ways and, while this is natural, you may need to invest in a new wardrobe that’s able to keep up. Whether you’re looking for pre-made garments or thinking about crafting your own custom maternity wear, consider the following reasons why spandex should be at the top of your material list.

Why Is Spandex Perfect for Maternity Wear?

1. Adapts to Your Changing Body

Spandex offers optimal stretch, so it can get you through multiple stages of pregnancy. As your baby bump gets bigger, the fabric can continue to provide coverage without feeling too tight. This will help you avoid buying too many new clothes that you’ll only wear when you're pregnant.

2. Helps You Stay Cool

spandexSpandex wicks away moisture, which is perfect, considering women tend to overheat and sweat throughout pregnancy. The breathable material provides plenty of airflow, so it dries quickly and allows your body temperature to easily regulate without making you uncomfortable.

3. Provides Optimal Comfort

Pregnancy often comes with a lot of discomfort, from nausea to skin sensitivity. The last thing you need is bothersome clothing that makes the problem even worse. Spandex forms to your body without adding rigid seams, itchy surfaces, or buttons and zippers that dig into your skin.
