The prospect of getting pregnant and then having to build an entirely new wardrobe can be either the best thing ever or your worst nightmare, depending on who you are. Luckily, maternity apparel has evolved so, so, so much in just one generation. Now—between department store retail giants curating wider selections of maternity wear and boutique maternity clothing brands breathing fresh air into the industry—we’re practically spoiled for choice.

Not only are inexpensive maternity clothes and plus-size maternity clothes more widely available, but if you’re looking for special occasion wear, like maternity party dresses, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see trendy maternity styles that can compete with your regular wardrobe.

What’s more, right now is actually a particularly fantastic time to be in the market, thanks to style icons like Meghan Markle’s maternity-wear cues. Looking for even more inspiration? Take a look back at Joanna Gaines’ best maternity looks from last spring.

Whether you’re reading this over an ever-growing bump or just planning ahead, we’ve rounded up the best places to shop for maternity clothes online, for all three trimester and postpartum needs.

The thing we love about LOFT is that, for every garment designed, it keeps different body shapes and sizes in mind. Most of its collection is available in Plus, Straight, Petite, and Tall sizes, and it’s translated a good deal of its best-sellers for Maternity, too. Unlike many other maternity lines, LOFT breaks its motherhood line into individual sizes from XXS to XXL, because one size does not fit all.

4 Hatch Collection

Meghan Markle-loved maternity brand, Hatch, is the ultimate destination for finding roomy, well-cut pieces that fit in seamlessly with your regular casual-wear wardrobe. Its collection of onesies are generously cut, but still almost undetectable as maternity wear—meaning you can get away with wearing these pieces for years past your due date. Don’t believe us? Hatch has a super helpful tool on each product page called the “Bump Slider,” which lets you preview the garment with and without a bump.
