As the weather starts to cool down, it’s time to start thinking about fall maternity sweaters. Luckily for us preggos, you don’t necessarily need a specific maternity sweater or jumper, although there are plenty of cute maternity sweaters to choose from. You can’t go past a classic black, a trendy cream, or a bold blue for this season. When it comes to style, a boatneck sweater can add a touch of elegance to any outfit, while a more relaxed fit is perfect for cosy, casual days. Being pregnant is amazing during the cooler months and you’ll love rugging up with your precious bump. The right sweater can make you feel confident and comfortable and protected. Here’s a guide to the best maternity jumpers and sweaters to buy this upcoming season.
What to keep in mind when buying your maternity sweaters?
- Comfort: As your body changes, comfort should be a top priority. Look for sweaters that are soft, stretchy, and lightweight as well as made from great material.
- Size: You can wear tight or looser sweaters, it’s really up to you but they need to be long enough to accommodate your bump. If you’re not sure, go one size up. Loose fitting is in!
- Fabric: Choose fabrics that are breathable, non-irritating and easy to look after. We’ve got a wide selection of good quality maternity jumpers and sweaters here for you to choose from.
- Style: There are many styles of maternity jumpers and maternity sweaters available, including boatneck, quarter zip, half zip, stripe (still very on trend), turtleneck, cowl neck, and crew neck. Choose a style that flatters your body and suits your taste.
Which fabrics are best for maternity sweaters?
- Cotton: Cotton is breathable, lightweight, comfortable, and easy to care for. It’s a great choice for casual maternity sweaters and won’t irritate your skin.
- Merino: Merino wool jumpers and sweaters are soft, lightweight, and warm. It’s perfect for cold weather and can be worn for formal occasions.
- Cashmere: Cashmere is luxurious and soft, making it an excellent choice for dressy maternity sweaters.
- Wool: Wool is great although it can be a bit itchy on some people. See how you go with a woolen blend and if it gets too much, swap for cotton.
- Where it’s not possible to get a maternity sweater that’s made of very high quality material, look for a blend.
