A growing number of Canadian moms are opting for pregnancy clothing, as a more supportive environment and increased access to care are pushing them to the forefront.
In addition to the pregnancy clothing items being popular with mothers, some are getting creative with their outfits, such as using a baby blanket to cover a pregnancy skirt.
The new style is known as a pregnancy pant, and has become a trend for mothers.
“I like the way it’s just sort of a skirt that’s a little bit shorter and a little lighter than my usual maternity pants,” said Katie, a mother of two from Montreal.
“It’s kind of like, well, you know, the one you wear on your body.
It’s a bit more casual and it’s kind like a blazer and a dress.”
Katie said the new trend is great for moms because it allows them to wear their favorite maternity clothing items, without sacrificing comfort.
“It’s very supportive,” she said.
“You know, it’s very comfortable.
You know, and it gives you more of a confidence level that you can say, ‘Yeah, I’m in control of my body.'”
When it comes to the clothing options available to women, the trend is growing.
While pregnancy clothing options are limited, women like Katie and Lisa believe that they can still find the items that fit them best.
“We’re definitely aware that there’s still a lot of space to grow and I think we’re going to continue to expand that and really embrace the new era that is happening with pregnant women,” Lisa said.
Lisa is currently pregnant with her third child, a boy she says is very excited to wear.
The two are excited about having a child and that it’s going to be a great experience for them both.
“This is definitely a moment in our lives where we can look back on what we’ve done together and think about it in a new light and how we can continue to do the things we love and do it the right way,” Lisa added.
“And so I’m very excited about it.”
