Check out these brands for maternity-wear bargains, basics and splurges.Best Maternity Clothes

Needing new clothes to accommodate your growing bump can be exciting for some and a overwhelming for others. It used to be you could only find maternity fashions at a handful of specialty shops and in a tiny corner of a department store.

But these days there are so many stylish options—everything from big-name retailers offering maternity lines to fancy designer labels to specialty shops selling the latest trends.

There really is something for everyone and every budget, even for those who don’t want to shop at all. You can purchase starter kits that provide several basics or rent clothes from a maternity wear subscription service like Le Tote, where you can pay a monthly flat rate to borrow clothes and even have a stylist pull pieces together for you.

Rent the Runway offers maternity rentals, as well. You can pay as you rent, or join one of their monthly memberships.

Or head to MM.LaFleur to check out their curated collection of elegant, perfect-for-work pieces that can fit before, during and after pregnancy.

But if you love the thrill of the hunt and want to find your own perfect pieces, check out these places where you can turn up bargains, basics and splurges.

Gap Maternity: Jeans, Jeans and More Jeans

If you live in jeans, you need a killer pair to rock for the next nine months. Look to the Gap for help—the store made its name selling a variety of blues. Their maternity jeans come in three cuts (skinny, bootcut and looser fit) and three different panel styles. Panels range from just a little bit of elastic set into a traditional waistband to a full elastic panel you pull over your belly. Gap makes great leggings too.

Additional Specs
Sizes Waist: 25”-34”; inseam: short, regular, long

A Pea in the Pod: Iconic Maternity Brand

There’s a reason that big designer names like 7 for All Mankind, BCBG Max Azria and Splendid want to collaborate with this brand: name recognition. A Pea in the Pod has been making moms-to-be look amazing for decades. Here you can find quality construction and flattering looks that won’t go out of style by the time you decide to do it all over again.

Additional Specs
Sizes Most brands range from XS-L, though a few carry XL

Kindred Bravely: For Your Lingerie Drawer

Want a nursing bra that you could practically live in? Kindred Bravely has you covered with stylish designs and a range of sizes to fit everyone—you can even maximize your cup space by selecting one of their “busty” sizes. Best of all, they have super stretchy but supportive nursing tanks with built-in bras. Trust us, you’ll wear these 24 hours a day in the third trimester—as your breasts rapidly change shape—and for breastfeeding or pumping postpartum. The brand also carries sleepwear, activewear (we love their nursing sports bra) and underwear, all at an affordable price point.

Additional Specs
Sizes S-XXL (and S-XXL Busty sizes), bands 28-42 and cups B-I

ASOS Maternity: Affordable Fashion

During your three trimesters you might find yourself attending weddings and showers, going on a babymoon and getting together with friends. Translation: You need a variety of maternity outfits. No worries, this British retailer known for budget-friendly fashion has maternity styles for all sorts of activities: party dresses, rompers, tees, sweatshirts, swimsuits and even pajamas for Netflix nights. And, their selection of wide-fit shoes is great if your feet spread during pregnancy (yep, it’s a thing).

Target Maternity: Great Basics

Target is a great place to stock up on comfy maternity basics like leggings and tees, as well as I-still-want-to-wear-my-regular-clothes essentials like this belly band to hold up your favorite, unbuttoned jeans or other non-maternity bottoms. And check out the higher-end (but still budget-friendly) styles from Target’s exclusive line by maternity designers Ingrid & Isabel.

Hatch: Luxury + Sophistication Maternity Wear

Hipsters and bohemians fall hard and fast for the silhouettes in Hatch’s modern line.

Note: these pieces do come at a luxury price.

H&M Maternity: Budget-Friendly Trendsetting

You know this big-box retailer for its uber-trendy styles at amazing prices. And that’s what you can expect from its maternity section too. The clothes from H&M include colorful florals, great prints, off-the-shoulder dresses and fun tees.

Additional Specs
Sizes Most items XS-XL

Girlfriend Collective Maternity: So You Can Stay Active

Staying active is important when you’re pregnant—and yes, it is possible to still do downward dog with a beach ball-sized belly. And to help keep you comfy and cool during your workouts, we love these soft, lightweight bike shorts from Girlfriend Collective. What we love even more though is Girlfriend Collective’s philosophy: eco-friendly, sustainable activewear with 100% transparancy about their materials and processes, so you can feel really good about what you work out in.

PinkBlush Maternity: Plus-Sized Posh

Pregnancy comes in all shapes and sizes, so we think maternity clothes should, too. While most brands will provide some plus-sized maternity styles, they’re usually limited in look and size. Not at PinkBlush. While they have a huge variety of styles for XS-XL sizes as well as Tall and Petite, their 1X-3X options are truly impressive (we’re talking 700+ plus-sized maternity looks). Everything is guaranteed to be on-trend, like this open-front kimono, which we love for its versatility.
