Maternity clothing that checks off all the boxes: actually stylish, flattering, fits well, AND can be worn throughout your entire pregnancy? That’s hard to come by! Finding stylish and flattering clothing to wear during the majority of your pregnancy is possible – you just have to think outside the box and hunt for those perfect versatile pieces!
I’ve rounded up some of the best non-maternity clothing to wear during pregnancy that are flattering, at great price points, and are versatile to wear before/during/and after pregnancy! I own many of these items (or similar ones) myself. A lot of you have been asking to see some maternity fashion over here, so I’m hoping to show more how I dress the bump the further along we get 🙂

What’s important to know before shopping non-maternity clothing
While you’re pregnant – depending on your body – your size will most likely change (sometimes drastically). And if it does, you will have to modify your clothing size to accommodate your growing bump. Normally, I am a pant size 2/size small in tops, but with both pregnancies I’ve gone up about 3-4 sizes in my bust, hips, and waist.
So mama-to-be, don’t get discouraged when “nothing fits” from your pre-pregnancy closet anymore. Remember that your body is doing an amazing and intense thing by growing a tiny human! And after your baby is out, it will take some time for your body to adjust and shrink down. Just breathe, learn to acclimate, and embrace your new mom bod! ❤ PS: Totally preaching this to myself, too!
