A common pregnancy side effect is swollen feet and ankles, a product of your body retaining more water. Changes in your blood chemistry also cause fluid to move into your tissue -- hi puffiness! It's not pretty and can even be uncomfortable at times.
While there's no quick remedy to nix swelling completely, the good news is there are cute and comfy sandals to sport this season that promise to give your tootsies some much needed TLC.
NEW! Modi Flip by Crocs: The duel density with ultra-soft footbed and durable outershell promise to cushion and support your tootsies. The slip-resistant and no-marking soles mean mom-to-be is walking around in very safe shoes. Tan in color, so they go with everything! $29.99, Crocs.com
Orthaheel Sea Trek: Who says supportive shoes can't be stylish, too? This sleek, strappy sandal from Orthaheel.com features a built-in, lightweight biomechanical footbed that supports feet -- plus aids in realigning the lower legs and improving posture. The durable rubber outsole with wave patterned tread improves traction to nix slipping. $64.99, Orthaheel.com
Keen Bali: These punchy patterned rose-colored sandals from Zappos.com are like pillows for your feet. Quick-drying polyester webbing keeps your feet dry at the beach and on the pool deck -- say bye-bye to sweating too! The compression molded EVA midsole is cushy and smooth like silk, while the patented toe protection reduces trips and falls -- and stubbing a toe/fudging up your pretty pedicure. $59, Zappos.com
