10 Mom-Approved Places to Buy Maternity Clothes
Pregnant people everywhere generally know that maternity clothing doesn't have the best reputation. The shapeless shift dresses, cheesy "bun in the oven" tees, and impossibly stretchy pants we've come to associate with maternity clothes don't exactly scream "fashion." And while there are cute maternity clothes out there—if you know where to look, of course— shopping for it can be challenging. When you're pregnant, your size is constantly fluctuating, sometimes even from morning to night. Plus, you're exhausted, so spending your precious energy shopping for clothes may not be very high on your list. But unfortunately, you can't just skip shopping for maternity stuff entirely— you need clothes, after all!
As a mom of two, I've been through this saga twice now. Yes, twice. I didn't get to reuse much of my maternity wear from my first pregnancy (since my first was born in March) so I needed mostly fall and winter clothes. On the other hand, my second was born in October, so I had to buy summer stuff too. But like any good mom, I'm here to pass on my hard-earned wisdom (read: so many returns) to you. Here are my picks for the best places to buy cheap maternity clothes, no matter what kind of styles you're looking for.
