This article presents certain results derived from the research of symbolic National Ukrainian ornamental patterns which were used on the clothing for the women of genital age. It was determined that this clothing differed, foremost, by the special embroidered decorative patterns. As a result of the research, two types of basic ornamental patterns were selected. Both symbolize the aim towards future generations of the family. The research also determined that the location on the clothing of the ornamental patterns is necessary for them to be effective. It is expected that the developed recommendations will avoid flagrant errors during the creation of clothing for future mothers, taking into account the wisdom of National Ukrainian traditions.
