Maternity clothing has taken massive strides forward in the past ten years. This could have something to do with the fact that fashion itself has taken massive leaps for mankind as the decades progress. The entire world is grateful that the running shorts that were popular for men in the 80’s are no longer in fashion. They say everything comes back around, but the mullet tried to come back in 2015 and that one got the cut really quickly, thank the fashion gods.
With this being said, pregnancy used to be a fashion disaster for women everywhere. Short waisted shirts suddenly become even shorter waisted when the belly grew and the high waisted jeans didn’t fit around the mass growing in the abdomen.

Thankfully today, the fashions have stayed on the soft and flowy side. Relaxed, or even nonexistent waistlines present in tunics popular today are great for pregnant women when paired with a great pair of leggings. Comfort is king, and the more fabric that is involved, the better. If you’re pregnant and not sure where to start looking to fill out your dwindling wardrobe, here are some ways to find what you’re looking for:
Take to the Internet
When you’re expecting and the last thing you want to do is walk around a mall to find clothes you’ll probably end up feeling fat in anyways, the internet is your best friend and your greatest resource.
If you have a love for empire waists and tops that flow out and extend past your behind, the internet will have a million options for you to choose from. It’s as easy as a search and the click of a button. The clothing will be delivered right to your door. The only thing you have to do is open the package and dawn your new, flattering and flowing ensemble.
Find an Exchange
Maternity clothing can tend to be expensive. There is a lot of fabric being used to cover a frankly large and growing surface area. Consider going to a clothing exchange to find new maternity clothing for this time in your life.
Women can only wear their clothes for a short amount of time before they grow out of it, so it’s a great idea to just keep the cycle going. Trade shirt for shirt, or you could simply buy an article of clothing that would normally be a size too big for you and allow yourself to grow into it. Whether you find a place that exclusively trades maternity clothes, or you make a habit of shopping second hand, you’ll feel less guilty about blowing through your clothes.
In any case, this is a monumental time of your life. You deserve to feel beautiful in the clothes you wear. Whether you shop online, in store, or second hand, this is your time to dress how you want and feel beautiful doing it. Happy shopping and may the shoe fit!
