3. Chiffon sarees

Chiffon comes under the fluttery category and no one will blame you if you wish to repeat the fabric day after day. For a summer festive season, go for a chiffon saree with its lightweight embroidery on borders and avoid anything with heavy embellishments. Soothing coral or pastel color will look amazingly serene during the blissful, beautiful pregnancy phase

Indo-western kaftans have injected such a craze among stylish women. This outfit idea has been accepted and adored across all the phases of a woman’s life. Be it their wedding trousseau or across the entire maternity period, they prefer to wear these loosely held kaftan numbers. A little sheer is fine but kaftan doesn’t look alright in completely transparent fabrics. Natural prints and block prints are popular and can be clubbed with lycra leggings.
