I always imagined maternity clothes as big, blousy, tent-like contraptions that I wasn't going to waste my money on.
But that all changed.
I was given a form fitting maternity top from a friend, and when I paired it with a pair of maternity jeans that I forced myself to buy, I realized I could feel a lot more like 'myself', and that there was a whole new world of maternity fashion that didn't involve flowery muu-muus. Thyme Maternity became my go-to store for both work and casual wear when I was expecting, and many items I bought survived multiple hand-me-downs to friends and family – so the quality really held up.
And it turns out there are more reasons to wear maternity clothes than just fashion and style – Thyme Maternity's got 5 reasons to share with us:
1. Your belly will need room to grow… so will your breasts
Early in your pregnancy, your regular clothing will become uncomfortable. Not only will your pants be too tight, your bra won’t provide you with the right support needed for the changes in breast size.
2. Your entire silhouette changes during pregnancy
As your body changes, your chest, hips, thighs, and bum will become curvier. Our product has been adapted and designed to fit your new shape everywhere.
3. Like most pregnant women, you’ll experience greater skin sensitivity
Our maternity-friendly fabrics are super soft and wearable and are developed to withstand frequent wear and washing.
4. Each woman is different, and so is each trimester
You should be able to tailor your level of comfort and your wardrobe to your specific needs at each stage of your pregnancy. Our clothing is designed to enhance your new body at each trimester.
5. After delivering your beautiful baby, your body will need some time to adjust
Feel comfortable and look your best in clothing that fits as you get back to your pre-pregnancy shape. Thyme has a wide variety of styles appropriate for this transition period.
