Sunnah (Recommendations) of Ihram:
These are the deeds which if a pilgrim fails to perform, no Fidya (ransom or expiation) will be enjoined on him but he will miss great rewards.
Bathing for Ihram. Bathing is also recommended for women in menses and in post delivery state. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordered one of Abu Bakr's wives, who intended to perform Hajj to wash herself after she had delivered.
Clipping nails, trimming the mustache, plucking the armpit hair and shaving the pubic hair for the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) had done so.
To wear white rida' and izar (Upper and Lower Ihram garb) because this was the practice of the Messenger (peace be upon him).
To start Ihram after praying an obligatory or supererogatory Salah.
To repeat and renew Talbiyah at the time of embarking, disembarking or Salah.
To supplicate and pray for the Prophet (peace be upon him) after Talbiyah, because the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used to, after reciting Talbiyah, ask Allah for Jannah (Paradise) and used to seek refuge of Allah from the Hellfire.
