Checklist: Maternity Fashion

  • You Have:

  •  Jeans Forget skinny styles and grab your roomiest pair for the first couple of months.

  • Blazer Button up to hide your growing bump, or wear it open to let your belly breathe.

  • Tank top You can rely on that stretchy shirt from your closet until the day you pop.

  • T-shirt Slide by in a larger-size shirt from your own stash for the first few months.

  • Cardigan Be ready for unexpected hot flashes. A basic button-up is easy on, easy off.

  • Skirt Turn to a pencil skirt for a slimming style even when you start feeling bigger.

  • Little black dress A style with an Empire waist won’t restrict your growing bump.

  • Husband’s t-shirt Steal one of his XL tees for some reprieve in the final stretch.

  • Black pants A side-zip is easy to leave open unnoticeably.

  • You Need:

  • Maternity jeans Work a dark wash (with a stretch panel) for day into night.

  • Wrap dress Adjust the dress to fit a fluctuating waistline pre- and postbaby.

  • Maternity tank top Cover up unbuttoned pants with extra-long styles.

  • Maternity t-shirt Show off your great new cleavage with a V-neck style.

  • Maternity cardigan Get a neutral hue, like black, that you can dress up or down.

  • Maternity skirt Highlight your thinnest assets (your legs!) with a short hemline.

  • Big black dress Take the maternity route and your dress won’t ride up in front.  

  • Under-belly black pants Don’t reveal any seams with your snug tanks and tees.

  • Maternity black pants Hide your belly and keep pants up with a wide panel.
