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 11 of our favorite maternity brands.

Storq
Storq $250

1. Storq

It’s all about setting a solid foundation to get you through the next nine months, and with Storq’s key basics, you will have the baseline covered. We are loving their basics bundle which provides the perfect base for your maternity capsule wardrobe including their simply perfect T-shirt dress, signature leggings, pencil skirt and white tank.

Nom Maternity
Nom Maternity $56

2. Nom Maternity

It’s all about quality over quantity, and this is true whether you’re pregnant or not. NOM Maternity pays close attention to sourcing the best fabrics possible to last throughout your pregnancy. Take a look at this easy striped long sleeve t-shirt for a layering essential.

Loyal Hana $105

3. Loyal Hana

The best part about Loyal Hana is that their pieces are not only designed with the belly in mind, but the boob too! Wear Loyal Hana before, during and after your pregnancy with strategically placed hidden zippers for nursing ease.

4.

Everything from the mama/daughter duo owned Stowaway Collection is sewn in Long Island City, NY and they source USA-made fabric whenever possible. Their bump-hugging and universally flattering essentials are premium quality and priced just right. We love this maternity to nursing raglan-style dress and long-sleeve ballet tunic.

Building a wardrobe of essentials during pregnancy that will take you from work to the weekend is crucial. Ripe offers these key pieces, and are we in love with this poplin dress. From sneakers to heels, you’ll wear it with everything. (And these c-section friendly overalls are 😍!)
