Three reasons why investing in maternity swimwear makes all the sense in the world
Can you get away with wearing your usual togs during your pregnancy? Is it necessary for you to invest in maternity swimwear?
These are questions many mums-to-be ask themselves as soon as baby starts to grow.
After all, can a good maternity swimming cosy make that much difference?
It sure can.
Let me I’ll explain why investing in maternity swimwear today will be a very sound decision in the long term.
It’s not just about the belly
Yes, you are right.
You could very well let that old cosy stretch to the point of no return and you’ll save yourself some dollars on good quality maternity swimwear.
I give you that.
But you see, while your pregnant belly might not get too big until the last few months, your body will undergo a lot of other changes. For instance, your breasts will feel different and tend to enlarge. Pelvic pressure will also increase.
All and all, what this means for you is that your body needs to be supported as best as possible to withstand all these changes. Only purpose-made maternity swimwear will do that for you.
Your fitness choices matter and so does what you wear
Fair enough, if swimming is not your cup of tea, then maternity swimwear doesn’t really matter.
But, let me insist here one more time (you can read my ravings about the benefits of swimming for pregnancy in our previous blog post here) – swimming is one of the most beneficial exercises for pregnant women.
So, my point is, no matter how difficult it might be to get yourself into your maternity swimming cosy, and driving (or walking) to your local beach or swimming pool, it will be worth your while.
Because once in the water your heavier body will feel supported, and you’ll minimise the added burden on your spine and limbs. Water also gives you a better range of motion without putting pressure on your joints while increasing your aerobic capacity.
Plus, in your early pregnancy, swimming will help you relieve morning sickness.
So, go on, look for stylish and comfortable maternity swimwear designed in Australia that supports your changing body and don’t miss out on that wonderful sensation.
Both you and your baby will love the feeling and rip the benefits in the short and long term.
Ultimate comfort for increasing discomfort
During pregnancy discomfort becomes the norm.
That’s how it is.
We, mums-to-be learn to cope with back pain, varicose veins, hormonal changes, you name it.
So, my final point today is simple – we deserve the best.
The purpose of maternity swimwear is to help us feel comfortable in a time where our bodies need all the help they can get. Sure you could continue using your somewhat stretchy bathers, but if you’re in the pool regularly – and I hope you are – then over-stretched togs won’t help you feel confident and comfortable enough to enjoy your workout and the relief of the water.
So, give yourself the level of comfort and care you deserve.
