Maternity Pantyhose, Tights, and Hosiery
Having a baby never means putting your chic fashion sense on hold. Of course the presence of a baby bump presents a number of challenges that can make wearing wearing certain types of clothing less than comfortable. Maternity hosiery is the key to staying stylish, comfortable and well supported as the baby grows. There are several different types of hosiery available for pregnant women, including tights, support socks, pantyhose and belly bands.
Support socks are designed for the pregnant woman who spends a lot of time on her feet. Available in solids or attractive stripes, these socks improve circulation, reduce swelling, and increase foot comfort. Opaque and sheer maternity tights are some of our bestsellers and stretch and fit comfortably on growing bellies while providing much needed additional tummy support. Maternity pantyhose are not as thick as tights, but are an option for under maternity dresses, as are maternity body shapers like Spanx Power Mama. They provide the wearer with added belly support and are available in nude and black. Belly bands are another type of maternity hosiery that's worn beneath clothing and is designed to help maternity pants or your pre-pregnancy pants fit and help new mothers to quickly return to their pre-pregnancy figures. Depending on the manufacturer, these bands can be worn during the final stages of pregnancy or after the baby has been born.
Regardless of the type of maternity hosiery needed, Belly Dance Maternity offers a selection of choices from well trusted brand names. The right hosiery can make a world of difference when pregnant. Not only will it make a woman feel more comfortable in her clothes, but it will also make her look and feel attractive no matter what she wears.
