Comfortable and gorgeous clothing is a must for anyone, especially during such a wondrous time as pregnancy. What if there is a way to not only look good and feel comfortable, but know that your clothing is also completely hypoallergenic, breathable, absorbent, and temperature-regulating? And let’s not forget about the durability and sustainability factor. We are, of course, talking about the linen maternity dressess. Let’s take a more detailed look at the list of benefits of wearing linen maternity clothes.  

  • Hypoallergenic for your and your baby’s wellness 

Linen is of a hypoallergenic nature, which means that wearing linen maternity clothes, or, as a matter of fact, sleeping in linen bed sheets, will reduce your exposure to pesky, allergy-inducing, foreign objects, such as dust particles, dust mites, and other possible irritants. It also means that linen is resistant to bacteria and fungi. That makes wearing linen a safe choice for a mother and her baby. 
  • Breathable for your skin

According to the Alliance for European Flax-Linen and Hemp, linen material has excellent breathability. This quality is defined by the fabric’s ability to have good airflow, therefore being so comfortable to wear on your skin. Because of breathability, your skin won’t become irritated by heat and moisture, which can manifest from simply anything, whether we are active or staying still. The ability to keep skin dry and cool (thus helping the body with temperature regulation) without triggering irritation or discomfort is simply irreplaceable during such times as pregnancy. 
  • Absorbent factor

Another great thing is that linen material absorbs water so quickly. This means that your garment is less likely to grow mildew and will dry fast. So go ahead, and enjoy that rainy summer’s day walk with your favorite linen dress

  • Warm in winter, cool in summer

Your linen maternity clothes will be a total lifesaver all year round. That’s right, during all four seasons, whether it's hot or cold, linen material will adapt to your body temperature and the environment. This special material retains heat better than cotton or viscose, which will help you feel warm and snuggly during the colder months but it will also help you to cool down if the weather is scorching. That makes linen material ideal for pregnancy months, because not only it will offer beauty, but also comfort. 
  • Durable and strong

Not only is it timeless aesthetically, but linen material is also very durable. Strong fibers of the flax plant, that construct this material, make it extra durable. That itself means that the linen maternity clothes you buy will last and serve you longer, during your pregnancy and beyond.

  • Sustainable and eco-friendly

Lastly, linen fabric is extremely eco-friendly and a sustainable choice. This is due to biodegradability because it is a natural fabric, unlike synthetic textiles. The molecules of linen fabric will reabsorb into the surrounding environment in years, not taking centuries. Wearing linen means opting for an environment-friendly solution, which will help our planet and your growing family!
