Buy new tees and tanks
Breathable, moisture- wicking fabrics are a must. But stretch is also important thanks to an expanding bust. The ideal? A cotton and Lycra blend.
Go for a tankini. It won’t pull as your belly continues to change shape both during or after pregnancy.
Find a better sports bra
Whether you hike, jog, or spin, a supportive sports bra is essential to accommodate growing breasts and to keep connective breast tissue from stretching or sagging. Rule of thumb to ensure a proper fit? Choose one size up during pregnancy.
Go for yoga pants
If you haven’t been already, you’ll soon find yourself tugging at your sweatpants, fighting to keep them up, so look for a pair that has a drawstring. Another great option: a fold- down waist panel.
