Tops are more flexible than bottoms. Though the upper part of your body changes the most your old non-maternity tops can perfectly work for you, at least in the first trimester period. Special athletic wear is still stretchy and supportive. But, according to the actual reports from yoga lovers, tops still need some changes when you are pregnant. First of all, they advise to purchase tops already with cups in order to get rid of a bra at least for the physical activities time and to make sure that the top covers the belly. Most women cannot perform the exercises right if their belly emerges from the top. This in fact is reason number one to choose special maternity clothes that will perfectly cover up the belly by giving it extra support. In case you like your old top but are ashamed of showing the belly a perfect option for you will be to buy a special maternity belly bend that is created to give support and cover the belly emerging from T-shirts and other tops.

Discover your waistband preferences. Waist is the most suffering part of a pregnant woman’s body so it definitely needs extra support. As said above you can always opt for belly bands of various types butif you do not waste your money twice it is highly advised to purchase special maternity pants or skirts with a full panel (this is a piece of fabric on top of the pants which pulls up over the belly) or you can check low-belly/under-belly panels that scoop underneath. Today there are even hybrid models. Look for options and make a choice that you feel most comfortable with.
