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, which recently curated a collection of their elegant, perfect-for-work pieces that also work during 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.
