Top 70 Life Stages Trends in May

From Braille Building Blocks to Maternity Athleisure

— May 5, 2019 — Life-Stages
This list of May 2019 lifestyle trends offers an all-encompassing look at the innovations and ideas that exist for consumers of all age groups, offering examples that range from developmental toys to resume-building apps.

In an effort to better support pregnant women who want to workout comfortably, Belly Bandit created maternity athleisure that included leggings, nursing sports bras and tank tops. Meanwhile, Pixel Eyewear is supporting school-aged children through the introduction of protective computer glasses that can help the wearer avoid the effects of computer eye strain or vision blur. On a more inclusive note, LEGO introduced braille blocks so children with vision impairments can learn to spell in English in a more engaging way.
