Best Maternity Dresses Under $50

Having a growing belly doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style (or your entire paycheck, for that matter). In addition to a few pairs of comfy maternity leggings, maternity dresses are another great closet staple to stock up on. And the good news is, there are a ton of affordable maternity dresses out there no matter the occasion—from brunch to the office to just lounging around at home.

Every dress on this list is $50 or less, and they’ll take you through your first trimester to delivery and into the postpartum period.

Baby Shower Showstoppers

Florals and ruffles aren’t necessary for your baby shower, but they’re certainly a staple. This off-the-shoulder style flatters both your bump and your neckline, and there are dozens of floral patterns and colors to choose from to match your baby shower theme.

We love everything about this wrap-front maxi dress, it’s flattering on any body type and is super comfy.

This flowy off-the-shoulder maxi dress is also really comfortable, which is a must when you’re pregnant and have to entertain baby shower guests for an afternoon. It comes in a bunch of pretty floral prints too.

Double Duty: From Officewear to Eveningwear

Whether it’s paired with a blazer and pumps or a clutch and ankle boots, this dress can take you from your 9-to-5 cubicle straight to dinner and (non-alcoholic) drinks in a flash.

Made with 95% cotton, this dress is flattering, breathable and suitable for any season (wear as-is in warmer weather or throw on a cardigan or jacket in cooler weather), and it looks great with just about any kind of shoes, so it’s a perfect option for all-day wear no matter what on your agenda.

Everyday Staples

This dress can really get you through your day-to-day, whether that means running errands, meeting friends for lunch or taking a much-needed rest/Netflix day on the couch. Dress it up or down to fit your mood, since it looks just as good with a pair of sneakers as it does with heels and a statement necklace.

On the flip side, if you’re pregnant in colder weather, you’ll want something to help keep you and your baby bump warm. Between the long sleeves, cowl neck and sweater-like jersey knit, you’ll be super comfortable and cozy for the season.

Between the flowy skirt, empire waist and a multitude of fun patterns to choose from, this dress can do a lot for sprucing up your daily maternity wardrobe.

Pregnant in the summer? This sleeveless tank top dress has adjustable straps and is lightweight making it perfect for warmer weather.

Motherhood Maternity is a one-stop shop for maternity clothing, and their selection casual dresses won’t disappoint. We love the floral print of this dress and the stretchy material means you’ll have room to grow.

For Brunch with the Besties

Want to go for a more chic look for a morning out on the town? We put this dress somewhere between Hollywood starlet and beach babe, and it really brings some effortless style to any maternity wardrobe so you can dress to impress at the brunch table.

Flowy and ultra-breathable. We love this dress for warm summer mornings in the park or hanging out with friends, and the stretchy waistband ensures the fabric won’t feel tight on your bump so you can wear it at any stage of your pregnancy.

A Formal Look (for Less $)

This luxurious velvet dress is perfect for holiday parties or fancy dinners. The bodycon style gently hugs your bump without being snug, so you can take part in the feast and not worry about running out of room (at least in your clothes).

A black dress is always a good idea for formal occasions. The wrap style (which is super flattering) plus the soft jersey fabric of this Isabel Maternity dress makes it comfy yet classy. It also comes in a wide range of sizes.

Whether it’s for a maternity photoshoot, a wedding or an evening at the opera, this gown practically screams elegance. The polyester/spandex blend keeps it stretchy yet sleek, and it comes in a variety of deep jewel tones that look great no matter the occasion or season.
