I need advice on what type of maternity clothes to buy. I currently have one pair of maternity black jeans that I love and fit well, a white top, a few stretchy under shirts. I’m only 17 weeks and will be due in February. I hate maternity clothes the ruched look it’s not my style. I am not big yet and just have been sticking to yoga pants and leggings with baggy shirts and I’m starting to feel like a tent. Since it will be getting cold soon where I live I was thinking of getting a few maternity clothes that could be worn when nursing too.
What are some good winter staples?

This is my second pregnancy, but first time I’ll need real maternity clothes. So far I have leggings from Destination Maternity, they’re part of the basics line and you get a black pair and grey pair together. I’ve heard good things about Old Navy’s maternity clothes over the years, especially their maternity jeans. It’s still hot where I live, but I will probably get a pair sooner than later. If you can, try to get large camisoles and other fitted tank tops that aren’t technically maternity.

I don’t know what your budget is like but my favorite nursing/maternity combo brand is “Boob”.

I hit up the sales rack at motherhood maternity initially. I have issues buying clothes online, and although I’ve heard good things about Old Navy, there is nothing in stores near me. Surprisingly, I have found some quite a few items from Ross. Maternity tops, shorts and leggings for super cheap. It varies from store to store-my local Ross doesn’t have as much as the Ross in my mom’s home town. I’m wasn’t looking to spend too much.

Oh man, I’m only 13 weeks and already loving maternity clothes. I’m not huge, but my tummy is just so uncomfortable in normal pants. I found a Motherhood Maternity outlet and got a bunch of stuff there- but I am all about the rouched look, so I can imagine it would be much harder if that’s not your style! Try Zulilly.com- they have different maternity sales every day and have done a lot of “fall style” ones lately. I also found this webiste called Pink Blush and it has super cute maternity stuff, especially dresses!

Gap Maternity is decent and has free returns I believe.

I really like the tank tops because you can wear them alone or under other tops and then just pull your boob out. Not the nursing ones (not a fan of those because they’re not as long as maternity tanks) but the real maternity tanks, like the ribbed ones. I like the ones from old navy because they’re the longest. I will put a loose long sleeved shirt over or a long cardigan in the winter (when not pregnant). Summer you can just wear them as is. So they work for both maternity and after. I have tanks from old navy, gap, and motherhood maternity. old navy is the longest (I am tall and long waisted and by 30 weeks the gap and MM tanks start to get too short on me). But MM and gap have some that don’t have the “ruching” if you don’t like that look, so they still work great for after birth

following because I’m needing maternity clothes too

I lived in a couple black dresses and leggings from Storq. Pricey but I literally wore them every day and always got complements and they were SO comfy. Definitely recommend.

Hatch Collection has great alternatives for stylish maternity clothes. Somewhat expensive, but they have a good variety of separates to mix and match.

I really like the maternity tanks from Old Navy because I have a long torso and they’re actually long enough, even now at 33 weeks. I think I’ll probably continue to wear them after as layering pieces.
I’m not as big a fan of my other maternity pieces from Old Navy. I prefer Gap and got some stuff there on sale, including non-ruched tops. I was not a fan of the ruched or super fitted tops before either, but now that my belly is bigger, closer fitting tops are more flattering since they make me look less huge all over. (And my non-fitted tops are actually more fitted now). I got my pants a size larger than my normal size and am glad I did. Even though they were really big at first, they should last to the end.

Pink blush has been good to a lot of people. I have mostly used Motherhood, and their website has a lot of sales if you watch. I got 3 shirts and 6 intimate items for less than $100.
I bought my first maternity clothes off Zulily and it was a terrible idea. It takes way too long to get stuff because of their sales model. You are only pregnant for so long, and I hated waiting a month from when I ordered to when I got things.

I lived in Old Navy’s maternity dresses, but I was due in July so my needs were a bit different than your’s. I loved Motherhoods yoga pants (I bought four pairs so I didn’t have to wash them every day haha)

H&M has a small but decent maternity section.
