Maternity 3 Pack Ultimate V Neck T-Shirt, $18
I loved this shirt so much, and the price was so right that I got it in every color. It’s perfect to wear under my favorite blazer or sweater, or even when I’m feeling one of those hot flashes (that they didn’t tell you about) and need to look casual but polished.
Maternity Crepe Scalloped Hem Cami Top, $10
As the temperatures heat up, I’m always looking for a cute camisole that can work underneath layers or all by itself. This cami is it.
Maternity Multi Side Stripe Soft Lounge Set, $18
If you’re still in the first or second trimester and are feeling a bit sluggish, a sweat suit might be for you — but at least make it cute!
Maternity Rib Twist Front Tie Jumpsuit, $18
I bought this jumpsuit for a friend’s birthday party and paired it with low cut boots, and let’s just say I could’ve gotten pregnant again that night.
Maternity Open Shoulder Ribbed Sweater, $15
This peek-a-boo shoulder shirt is perfect, especially for these spring months.
Maternity High Neck Ribbed Midi Dress, $12
Before you freak out and say this is too tight, it isn’t. Mom, bodycon dresses are your friend during pregnancy. After all, your bump is your best accessory so you might as well show it off.
Maternity Wrap Front Horn Button Midi Dress, $15
Another myth is that you can’t wear buttons down the middle due to your stretching middle. False, again my friend! This wrap front dress is perfect for moms, but don’t be afraid to wear a slip or undergarment underneath just to be sure baby isn’t showing midday.
Maternity Nursing T Shirt, $12
Who said you have to look drab while breastfeeding?
Maternity Off The Shoulder Wrap Midi Dress, $22
Need a baby shower look? This off-the-shoulder wrap dress is perfect for you. And it has tons of stretch just in case you want to save it for a few months.
Maternity Nautical Stripe Swimsuit, $18
If you’re expecting during the summer months, you can still rock it on the beach. Just be sure to stay cool, drink water and stay in the shade. Don’t forget your SPF!
Maternity Over The Bump Hold In Midi Skirt, $12
High-waisted skirts are also ideal during pregnancy, especially during the first and second trimester when your bump is a bit smaller. Try out this mustard-colored skirt to make a statement.
