Maternity Clothes

At first glance, buying a new wardrobe to wear for just nine months may seem annoying and wasteful, but the best maternity clothes—those that flatter your changing body and show off your bump in a way that makes you feel cute rather than elephantine—will help you feel comfortable and beautiful throughout your pregnancy.

Another thing: you’ll put your maternity clothes to good use long after you give birth; it typically takes a woman’s body a year to return to normal—or at least, something resembling normal. The average person will be wearing maternity clothes roughly 3 4 months after birth.

Even so, it can be difficult (and downright overwhelming) to try to pull together a maternity wardrobe out of the blue. If this is how you’re feeling, take a deep breath; you’re in the right place! Just start with a few key pieces.

We’ve divided this series into 7 parts ~

We hope you find just what you’re looking for. Happy shopping and bump-accessorizing!


  1. Could you do one for plus sized moms to be as well? A lot of maternity shops don’t offer anything for plus size women, and believe it or not, we do actually have babies too! ;P
