Generally, I’ve noticed I’m more comfortable (and look better) in pieces that are a bit snug and form-fitting. I’m only 19 weeks, but so far I would recommend:
- GAP maternity leggings
- Gap maternity jeans (I like the demi-panel ones, but that’s personal preference.)
- One-size up underwear
- Tanks from Old Navy (non-maternity)
- Maxi dresses (won’t be practical come winter)

I have lived in target yoga pants– at $15/ pair, they are virtually disposable!
I stocked up on the kind with the fold down waist… except i don’t fold the waist down.. and its like a built in maternity panel. Same thing goes with maxi skirts– i’ve lived in them too– great with a maternity tank.
Luckily I work from home, so I haven’t needed a “work wardrobe” per say.
Don’t bother buying any “maternity” open sweaters, all of my pre-pregnancy sweaters have worked just fine, I lived in those w/ a tank and a scarf– especially great in the early weeks when you’re bloated but aren’t telling anyone yet.

Wow everyone has such different collections, it will definitely depend on your style and what you like to wear and what you need to wear it to.
I have one pair of black work pants
One pair of khaki work pants
One pair of black casual capris
Two jeans, one skinny one boot cut
No shorts, I hate shorts.
One pair of leggings that I wore only a few times.
Two dresses (three if you count the one I only wore once, for my shower)
Three tank tops
A black cardigan and a white cardigan which I wear a lot over short sleeved shirts and tank tops.
And about 7 shirts, long sleeved and short sleeved, mostly all work appropriate.
I don’t have any maxi dresses or skirts because I’m short and they are way too long.
The bella band lasted me through maybe 15 weeks.
The only non maternity things I wear are pajamas, camisoles under my work shirts and one stretchy dress that still kinda fits.
oh and I’m 37 weeks. I had to buy three new shirts recently because several no longer fit. My boobs were big to begin with and got enormous so that was a problem. I definitely recommend consigment shops. I didn’t pay more than $4 for each shirt that I got recently.
