As temperatures start dropping this fall, sweaters start to become more than a fashion statement. Both your mom and your OB will agree with us on this one: Mothers-to-be should always keep themselves (and their bumps!) bundled up well with cozy maternity sweaters. For one, cold weather (which is known to cause over-fatigue and a general feeling of being “down”) and hormonal pregnant women aren’t a good mix. Also, anything’s a good excuse to wear these ultra-comfy fashion pieces. Afraid that sweaters might make you look bulkier than the Hulk? Opt for lightweight materials like cotton and go for cuts, like cardigans, that are modern and flattering to your form. Gap Elegantly Expectant: 5 Maternity Sweaters from Gap offers fun, stylish options for keeping the chill at bay while on stork watch…all at $50 or less.
