by pregnancy journalist

Once you find yourself in need of bump-friendly clothing, you might realize just how frustrating the shopping process can be. But figuring out where to buy maternity clothes, be they from dedicated maternity retailers and It labels alike, can make you feel a little more like yourself during pregnancy. With the right wardrobe picks, you no longer have to feel like you’re sacrificing style to get comfortable—or deal with stretchy tunics and shapeless sack dresses for months on end.

While go-tos like Nordstrom and Asos are filled with stylish finds for pregnant women to wear during all three trimesters and beyond, you’ll find some hidden gems here, too (including one beloved by the royals). To help with the transition after your bundle of joy is born, most of these brands offer stylish nursing and postpartum attire, too, from convertible bras, tops, and dresses to supportive leggings. 

Whether you’re looking to refresh your maternity wardrobe—all in a variety of price points, no less—or stocking up pre-pregnancy, scroll on to discover 16 brands for the best maternity clothes so you’ll be bumpin’ in style.

For budget-friendly options, it doesn’t get better than Asos Maternity. The retailer always hits a high note from athleisure to formalwear—we’re talking everything from romantic puff sleeves to sweatsuits. Plus, you can also find all the basics, including maternity pants, tees, cozy sweaters, and more. 

One of the most reliable retailers out there, Gap never fails us for closet staples like jeans, sweater dresses, and activewear. To accommodate a changing body, the retailer delivers on stylish bump-friendly options to stock up on, including the often-overlooked category of maternity underwear. (FYI: Its sister store, Old Navy, is also a winner for more trendy maternity finds.)

A Pea in the Pod

Since its inception by Ariane Goldman in 2011, Hatch has been a mecca for stylish and timeless maternity wear for women through every stage of pregnancy. Not only can you shop based on the trimester you’re in (including the often-overlooked fourth trimester, a.k.a. peak nursing and post-partum), but the maternity line also offers a wide assortment of blouses, knits, dresses, and comfy loungewear—consider your WFH uniform of professional on top, cozy on the bottom fully covered. You can also snag gorgeous dresses worthy of your baby shower and seriously cute maternity PJs.

Specializing in maternity and nursing-smart clothing, Motherhood Maternity has been all about maternity style since 1982. You’ll find all the pregnancy hits, from nursing sweaters (honestly, the greatest innovation) to bump essentials, like shea-butter-infused leggings and tummy sleeves (they’re like a smoothing camisole for the bump). They even offer a clothing rental program—genius.

You better believe Amazon offers maternity clothing—and, per usual, it’s a gold mine for affordable finds. Leggings that can support a growing belly? Check. Layering tops in lots of colors? You bet. Nursing bras and nursing tops? Obviously. A cozy sweatshirt dress? Of course. Maternity fashion has never been so easy—or wallet-friendly.

No splurge needed with PinkBlush Maternity, which offers dresses, denim, swimsuits, and nursing attire, as well as styles from the brand’s private label. They also have plus-size maternity clothes and petite- and tall-friendly sections filled with great finds—many of which you can keep in rotation post-pregnancy, too. 

If you’re prioritizing environmentally-friendly fabrics more than ever, then don’t miss Isabella Oliver’s ethically-made maternity wear. The London-based brand works with fabrics like organic cotton and jersey as well as recycled wool, cashmere, and Tencel blends—prioritizing plant-friendly, vegan, and low-carbon options with every design. Plus, the label has a pre-loved section to shop for stylish, second-hand scores. 

If you’re the type to rely on a few well-made basics, Storq is the maternity brand for you. Not only are the label’s leggings, biker shorts, dresses, and tops buttery-soft (not to mention pinch-, dig-, and itch-free) but they’re also so well-designed so that every piece will last through multiple pregnancies and beyond. They’re inclusive, with styles run from sizes 0 through 3X or 26.

Unless you live the offline life, you’ve probably heard of Hill House Home’s viral Nap Dresses, founded by Nell Diamond. If you’ve got one, two—okay, five—hanging in your closet, great news: Nearly every silhouette can last throughout pregnancy in your regular size, thanks to lots of stretchy smocking, ruched waists, and tiered or empire silhouettes.

Beyond Yoga is another cult-loved label renowned for its incredibly soft space-dye leggings. (Honestly, not owning a pair is a disservice to yourself.) Good news: The brand has a delightful maternity section filled with easygoing staples, including biker shorts, tops, dresses, and, of course, bump-friendly leggings. 

Sleeper is an influencer- and editor-fave for whimsical dresses, sleep sets, loungewear, and cozy accessories. Most can accommodate a growing baby bump, whether your vibe is all about romantic puffy sleeve dresses or oversize silk pajama sets—why not both?

Like the rest of us, you might already be a Madewell devotee for the great denim (duh), knitwear, and breezy basics. As luck would have it, the brand is ~also~ packed with maternity wear—and even carries styles from other go-to maternity brands, such as Ingrid & Isabel and Hatch.
