Category: Maternity Wear That Doesn’t Suck

A comfy maternity top that holds it all in

Pregnancy presents some interesting sartorial challenges. Wearing a bra can feel torturous, but keeping the girls supported is a necessity. Covering the belly can feel oppressive, but not keeping it sheathed is out of the question. So what’s a mama-to-be to do? A multitasking bra/tank combo is one of the best options out there. Sure, there are many tank tops on the market with built-in bras, but the new Maternity Bra Tank from Glamourmom was designed especially for the wardrobe challenges every pregnant woman (including me!) face. The ruched detail on both sides of the belly area allows for...

A nursing dress that looks nothing like a nursing dress

Even though I’m still breastfeeding my six-month old every few hours, I somehow forget that little fact when I go shopping and want to buy all these adorable sundresses for myself. Lifting my dress up over my head every time the baby needs to eat is really not an option. But that’s all changed since finding this adorable, affordable nursing dress that I plan to live in all summer long. I’m once again impressed with the budget-friendly breastfeeding clothes from Milk Nursingwear, this time with their gorgeous, bright halter-style nursing dress that delivers in both fit and function. Unlike...

Who says pregnancy can’t be sexy?

At 38 weeks pregnant, I can honestly say I feel about as unsexy as a sack of potatoes. But just like putting a smile on your face is supposed to make you feel happier, wearing sexy lingerie should do the same thing, right? That was my mindset when I tried on a set of aggressively saucy purple and black lace lingerie. We’ve all heard the term “hot mama” before, but You! Lingerie, a collection of nursing bras and maternity lingerie is taking the yummy mummy look to extremes. The Azalea Orchid (pictured), the set I was sent, is a...

A t-shirt that does a pretty darn good job of hiding my bump

While my belly has been massively expanding over the last eight months, my wardrobe hasn’t. My pregnancy dressing tactic has been to buy a few key maternity pieces and then fudge the rest with my regular threads. Fake it ’til you make, if you will. I hate spending money on something with such a short lifespan. But then I found a middle ground where maternity meets postpartum wear. Aussie brand Elk Accessories makes a line of A-line T-shirts that are insanely soft (thanks to a blend of cotton, modal and spandex) and incredibly forgiving. The swingy bottom half of...

Boden launches maternity. Brilliant!

When I heard that Boden, my favorite clothing company from across the pond was launching maternity, I felt like doing cartwheels. But, being seven months pregnant, I opted for a fist pump instead. Not only am I fan of Boden’s women’s collection, but I’d say about 75% of my son’s wardrobe comes from Mini Boden, their affordable and ridiculously cute collection for babies and kids. (I mean, how adorable are these faded denim board shorts with a skull print?). The Boden maternity clothes have a slightly limited selection at the moment, but it’s still chock full of the staples...

The maternity top that’s saving me from a thousand tiny breakdowns daily

I have discovered maternity top nirvana. Nirvana, I tell you. And I’m pretty sure I will not be taking this thing off until I have my baby. Finally, I’m spared the thousand daily tug-downs of a too-small top. Finally, the underside of my belly doesn’t have to get chilly when I’m out for an autumn walk. Finally, a top that actually fits in those last, gigantic –or maybe that’s just me?– weeks of pregnancy. My near-deliriously happy state is all thanks to a Bashful Bump maternity bodysuit. I know, I know. A bodysuit? How can that be comfortable? But...

Piperlime goes pregnant

I admit that I’m a sucker for a fancy pair of jeans, mostly because I’ve found over the years that they just wear and fit better. And after almost four kids on an already hard to fit body, those things are really hard to find at budget prices. So I guess it’s no surprise that I’m a fan of designer maternity jeans, now available at Piperlime. With designer labels like Citizens of Humanity and James Jeans, you can stock up on hot maternity denim along with the plethora of other goodies Piperlime offers – like shoes, bags, and more...

Maternity shirts that keep on going, and going

I’m loathe to buy any new maternity clothes in the middle of my 3rd trimester, but it’s also the point in my pregnancy where all my favorite items start to get a little tight – except for my one all-time favorite piece, my trusty BumpStyle maternity shirt. I’ve raved about these amazing maternity shirts before, and I’m so pleased to see they’ve added a few new styles. A top pick: The lovely kimono sleeve maternity tunics that are perfect for Fall, and for covering my jiggly pregnancy arms. If you’re not familiar with BumpStyle t-shirts, they’re probably the most...
