Whether you’re pregnant or nursing, there are essential items you should have in your closet. Create a wardrobe full of maternity clothing that’s the perfect balance of practical and stylish. We recommend that you stock up on the basics including tops, bottoms, one-pieces and outerwear.
When it comes to tops, you can go one of two ways: fitted or flowing. It’s truly all about preference, but it’s a good idea to have a mixture of both silhouettes sprinkled throughout your wardrobe. Tops infused with stretch and ties are cool features to help showcase your baby bump. Fit-and-flare tops like peplums or loose styles like tunics and sweaters will glide over your ever-changing silhouette. Want to get more wear out of your maternity tops? Then grab a few nursing tops you can wear post-pregnancy, too.
Now, let’s get to the bottoms. Maternity Jeans and pants come in a variety of styles—think full length, capris, shorts and more. And don’t count denim out! From skinny jeans to flares, there are plenty of fits available for pregnant women—just remember that stretch is key. Try on a few styles to find the ones that feel the most comfortable for you.
Need to get ready in a flash? Dresses are the perfect one-piece to toss on when you’re in a rush or simply don’t have time to worry about what to wear. Maternity dresses, from minis to maxis, come in a wonderful assortment of designs. You can experiment with pretty patterns or go with solid shades. Finish your look with maternity outerwear that works for the season or climate. Have a few jackets and coats to choose from. Plan to stay active during your pregnancy? Then invest in maternity workout clothes and maternity swimwear, too.
