Best Maternity and Nursing Robes

Best Maternity and Nursing Robes

Let’s be honest: A growing bump can make it difficult to fully close your robe. And that’s no good if you live for the loungewear life. The solution: a maternity robe.

Maternity robes are cut with more fabric so there’s no gap, just overlap. The belt is also positioned higher for cinching above your bump. You can still use a maternity robe after your little one arrives, too. Layer it over nursing pajamas or nursing bras or tanks for extra warmth. You can also wear the robe on its own for easy-access breastfeeding.

Here are some comfy choices you can wear during pregnancy, while nursing and for years afterward.

Best Maternity Robe and Swaddle Set

Matching maternity robe sets are all the rage now, and this parent-baby set really delivers on both cuteness and comfort. All three pieces—maternity robe, baby swaddle and baby headband or hat—are 95% viscose from bamboo, which makes them buttery soft, stretchy and even naturally anti-fungal and odor-resistant (which is a big plus for when baby inevitably spits up). Be sure to have your camera ready, because you and baby will be instantly #twinning.

Sizes S-XXL
Care Machine wash and dry
Material 95% Viscose from Bamboo, 5% Spandex

Best Plus-Size Maternity Robe

We like to think Kindred Bravely thought of everything with this robe. It’s got super soft fabric (95% modal), satin details for a sturdier luxe look (unlike lace, which can snag easily), ultra deep pockets for holding your favorite necessities or pumping supplies and, best of all, two belt positions—at the traditional waist or empire waist—so you can wear the robe in whatever way is most comfortable for you.

Additional Specs
Sizes S-3XL
Care Machine wash
Material 95% modal, 5% spandex; satin collar and belt

A Longer Option

PinkBlush has a wide range of maternity robes, from florals and animal prints to solids and lace-trimmed. We love this particular robe for its length—at 50 inches long, it’ll cover your knees and shins when most other maternity robes won’t, and it’s a much more favorable option for parents who are on the taller side.

Additional Specs
Sizes S-XL
Care Hand wash cold, line dry
Material 100% Rayon

Lingerie-Like

Want to feel like royalty even when you’re having a stay-in-your-robe, feeding-baby-all-day day? Opt for this robe with flowy three-quarter sleeves, lace detailing and a figure-flattering drape. Pair it with the matching nursing-friendly Tallulah Nightie to bump (pun intended) the look up a notch.

Additional Specs
Sizes S/M, L/XL, XL/XXL
Material Soft cotton/poly knit (body); nylon/spandex (lace)

Best Maternity Robe for the Hospital

Hospitals can often be particularly chilly, and the provided delivery gown is less than comfy. This maternity robe from Monica + Andy has long sleeves and a longer-than-average length to keep more of you covered up, and the organic cotton waffle knit ensures more coziness and warmth than most thinner maternity robes. For an extra $15, you can have your initials embroidered. And possibly the best feature of all: it has pockets!

Additional Specs
Sizes XS-XL
Care Machine wash, tumble dry low
Material 100% organic cotton
