Dressy maternity clothes

Sara Assadi

Dressing for maternity doesn’t have to mean wearing clothes that look like sacks. On the contrary it’s easy to be really fashionable throughout your pregnancy, if you want. We have gathered maternity clothes for all different body types and styles, everything from plus size maternity clothes to maternity clothes on sale.

Dressy maternity clothes

During pregnancy, your body will obviously change shape in many ways, and it isn’t just your stomach that grows either. At first, you can get away with the usual stretchy knitwear from your normal wardrobe, but as time passes it’s nice to have at least some clothes that still feel like dressing up.

Below are some cool clothes for pregnant women, and many of them even continue to work even after the birth.

Speedo Essential U Back Maternity Swimsuit Black

Speedo Essential U Back Maternity Swimsuit

Swimming during pregnancy is a gentle form of exercise that also gives the opportunity to feel weightless for a while. Having a swimsuit that provides support where you need it and also stays in place gives you an extra comfortable feeling in the swimming pool or on the beach.

This maternity swimsuit from Speedo has folds on the sides and extra support for the bust.

3 tips for buying maternity clothes

  1. Buy for the right season. If you get pregnant in January, by the time you need maternity clothes, it’s going to be the warmer months of summer. So be sure to buy clothes with that thought in mind.

  2. Buy clothes you like. This may sound like a pretty obvious tip, but it’s often easy to forget about that when you’re pregnant and just focus on buying something suited to maternity.

  3. Buy for the future. Many maternity clothes look great even after childbirth. So shop for brands that know it makes sense to design garments people like and will use for more than just a few months.
