There is a great shopping debate around how much true maternity wear you need to purchase for the short-lived pregnancy. And while there are strategic ways to shop non-maternity items that will flex with your changing shape, a handful of maternity brands are worthy of adding to your wardrobe for the duration of your journey. Plus, you may be able to wear them well beyond birth, too.

Here are 13 of our favorite maternity brands.
