5 Maternity Clothing Essentials

One of the hardest things to shop for while pregnant is clothing. With both of my pregnancies, I wanted to be comfortable and cute but didn’t want to break the bank while doing so. Having the essentials to get you through your pregnancy is key. Here are some essential items that will keep you happy and most importantly comfy!

Maternity Shirts/Tanks

Having a few comfortable shirts/blouses and tanks that meet your comfort level are a must have. Whether it is for work or a doctors visit, comfort is key. When buying shirts for your bump, it might be best to try on to ensure your belly has plenty of room to grow so that you aren’t having to continuously buy clothes.

Cardigans and kimonos are loose and comfy and only require a camisole underneath. Personally, they are my favorite and are probably two of the most comfortable and fashionable choices while pregnant. Just pair them with jeans or leggings and you’re good to go.

If jeans are your thing, a couple pair of stretchy maternity jeans will do the trick. Leggings are a personal favorite (pregnant or not) because they are so flexible and comfy.

If it is warm outside, a dress is a great choice. It is easy to get in and out of and allows for airflow to keep you cool. Not to mention it makes all those bathroom trips a lot more easy.

Of course you will need comfortable shoes while pregnant. Many women have to deal with swollen ankles and/or feet which can make it difficult to find a good pair. I find slide on, stretchy shoes to be the most comfortable.
