If you’re going to serve in the military, it never hurts to have a uniform that fits. Perhaps not so easy to do when you’re pregnant.
But hey, for a TikToker and an Army culinary specialist who goes by Viviana, it’s no problem at all. In fact, she claimed her maternity clothes are more comfortable than maternity clothes for everyday civilians.

“I was getting a lot of questions about the Army maternity uniform,” she said in a TikTok video in which she models the garb. “There’s buttons on the side, and the bottom is very loose and big. The pants have the stretchy band. … Pants are comfy.”
Users reacted with overall glee, some going as far as saying they didn’t even ever think about what it must be like to be pregnant while in the military.
“I’m pleasantly surprised!” exclaimed one comment, echoing multiple others of the same vein. “reminder that not all people in the military go into the field. my step mom worked in the military at an office,” another one mentioned.
That led to another video from Viviana, who explained what it’s like to be pregnant in the Army. Well, for starters, you can’t carry a weapon. Nor can you wear any protective gear (body armor, helmets, etc.), or ride in a military vehicle. And no, you can’t get deployed.
But you can get comfortable, thanks to the military maternity outfit, and when you’re pregnant, a little comfort is all you likely really need. Still, props to this momma for using her platform in the right way! This is what we want to see, clean and helpful content that reminds us that there are strong women out there working their way through life. Props!
