You need allthethings to accommodate your growing bump, but it’s so dang hard to get off the couch these days.

These maternity items will make life easier for you during your pregnancy and not cost you a fortune.

Clothing Basics

Uber-Comfy Leggings

Whether you’re a “leggings kinda gal” or not, these are the ultimate pregnancy staple. When comfort is priority, it’s pregnancy leggings to the rescue.

H&M MAMA Leggings


Not Ready to Ditch Your Pre-Pregnancy Clothes Just Yet?

Belly bands do double duty: they give your bump some coverage so you can wear shorter tops without worrying about your belly showing, and they cover up the waist of your pants, allowing you to wear them unbuttoned (you know you want to!).

A Dress That Works for Month 1 to 9 (and Beyond)

Curve-hugging knit ensures that no matter how big baby gets, you’ll still get great looking coverage all the way through month 9.

Underneath It All

Keep the Girls Contained

The first sign of pregnancy for most women is an expanding chestline. A no-brainer purchase is a comfy bra to keep the ladies in place while you (attempt to) sleep. These sleep bras are super cozy and pull down easily if you plan to nurse once baby’s born.

No Seam, High-Rise Panties That Stay in Place

When a thong is out of the question, fold these up for over-the-bump support or fold them down for under belly comfort. These are great for postpartum recovery too.

SUPER Stretchy Low-Rise Panties

If you prefer under-the-bump panties, these are cut specifically for pregnant women and don’t roll or ride down like your pre-pregnancy underwear might.

If It's Cold But You Refuse to Wear Pants

It’s winter, but the thought of wriggling into a pair of pants just about makes you want to stay at home. Opt for a warm pair of tights that cover your belly—these are made with fleece.

When You're Not Ready to Give Up on Your Bras

Your chest is expanding but your wallet isn’t. These bra extenders hook into the back of your existing bras, giving you a few more weeks (or if you’re lucky, months) of wear before you officially have to size up.

Comfy Flats for Any Season

Shoes are often an investment…but when you aren’t sure what size you’ll end up being it’s hard to drop dough on new kicks. These ballet flats are wide to accommodate swelling and are the right price for your temporary new shoe size.

Health & Pampering

Belly Itch Relief (and Maybe Stretch Marks)

Lots of products will claim to keep you stretch-mark free, but the truth is that genetics combined with how big your belly expands are the determining factors of whether or not you’ll get them. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t moisturize and pamper your bump: this belly butter provides soothing relief for itchy skin and is packed with all the usual suspects (cocoa, shea and jojoba butters) that claim to keep stretch marks at bay.

All-Natural Nausea Relief

Some mamas swear that pressure-point bands provide natural (and needed) nausea relief, while for others these don’t work at all. All we know is that when you’re suffering from nausea, you’ll try anything. These are inexpensive enough that they’re worth a shot.

For a Little '3-Free' Pampering

Getting pregnant makes us all pay a little bit more attention to what we put in and on our bodies. Standard nail polish is one of those culprits that are typically full of chemicals. Zoya was one of the first to go “3-free” (free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or formaldehyde) and comes in hundreds of perfectly pretty shades.
