My Favorite Maternity Stores


Being a girl & getting dressed on a daily basis isn't typically the easiest task in the world.  Add in weight shifting, bigger boobs & a growing belly & let's just say things can get interesting.  If you're like me, one week something fits & the next week it needs to be shoved to the back of the closet.  It's hard & frustrating... especially when you're just trying to get out of the house & off to work.

Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite maternity sites!  I'm a bargainista through & through and believe in buying quality items at discount prices so, nothing here breaks the bank & was on sale at one time or another!


Tips for Buying Maternity Clothes
+ Buy only sale items
+ Look for discount codes for free shipping & additional percentages off your overall order
+ Sign up for discount e-mails - if you don't need them you can trash them!
+ Sign up for mailers to arrive in your mailbox
+ Buy in advance - if you know you're expecting now but, will be in need of maternity clothes in the Spring/Summer, shop store clearances.  They're "out with the old, in with the new" right now!
+ When trying to figure out what size you are, it's best to go up 1 size from your normal, pre-pregnancy size
+ Don't think you're going to be a giant & go up 2 sizes - then, you will feel like a giant when wearing said clothing items, trust




If you've read any of my bumpdates you already know just how much I love, love, love Motherhood's leggings!  Like, let's say I have 5 black pairs, 1 brown & 1 grey - They're that good!  I'm a sucker for comfort so, most of the time you'll find me in leggings but, I've also found that the Jessica Simpson Maternity Skinny Jeans fit like a glove.  They are like a regular jean material but, still have enough stretch to them to fit comfortably.

{For shorter ladies, grab the petite style - in maternity clothes it means nothing more than being 3" shorter than the regular fit}


I've also bought a few tops from Motherhood Maternity that are very comfortable & flattering for the growing bump - tieing just above the bump & long enough to cover the booty.  They're comfortable yet, still make you feel like you're dressing up!  {These are similar}

Old Navy

Old Navy - it's a classic store; It's been around forever & we all love it!  When I recently had a "growth spurt" I found myself putting more & more things at the back of the closet & having fewer items to wear without wearing them once a week.  I ended up checking out with 2 sweaters, 2 tank tops, 1 long sleeved tee & 1 Tunic.  I have gotten compliments on each top I've worn & can honestly say that each of them is so soft & comfortable yet I still feel like I've "dressed up" - Win! Win!  These are each perfect for pairing your favorite scarf or long necklaces with & can be worn with leggings or jeans!

Tank tops that are perfect for layering found here!


Pink Blush Maternity

This is a super fun store that always has things to keep the momma-to-be looking super cute & fashionable.  I've only bought a few tops from here but, I can say that I have loved each of them!  2 have even made appearances in my weekly bumpdates!

I hope this list of stores will help you on your maternity shopping journey!  I'm not much of a "shopper" but, enjoy finding quality clothes that fit good, are comfortable & you know will last you + not break the bank!  Happy shopping mommas!!
