You’re pregnant! Firstly, a huge congratulations and, secondly, it’s time to invest in the best maternity clothes from the best maternity brands out there. Any excuse to treat yourself when you’re carrying new life, right?
Shopping for maternity clothes can be a bit of a minefield but it also provides the perfect opportunity to jazz up your wardrobe with some new pieces, as well as some investment staples you’ll wear way beyond the birth of your baby. More on that later.
Anyone who has carried a baby knows very well that it often isn’t just your tummy that grows; your whole body can change when you’re carrying a child – in the most amazing ways, of course. Skinny jeans and fitted slip dresses fast become a thing of the past and you’ll take a comfortable pair of leggings and an oversized jumper over pretty much any other outfit. But thanks to a growing roster of brilliant maternity brands, you can still look amazing whilst embracing your new pregnancy body. Rather than splurge on 20 new items that you’ll never wear again after birth, we implore you to invest in carefully selected maternity clothing and incorporate them into your existing wardrobe.
What is the best place to buy maternity clothes?
With countless retailers on the market, it can be difficult to know where to begin with maternity fashion shopping. Fret not. We’ve tested every maternity clothing brand for sartorial credentials, comfort and longevity and it’s totally your call which brands you shop from. There’s high street, high-end and lots of sustainable brands with clothes that will serve you long after you give birth. Here’s GLAMOUR’s edit of the best maternity clothing brands of 2023.
1. H&M Pregnancy Clothes
Among GLAMOUR readers, H&M is one of the most popular places to shop for maternity clothes because buying from this high street stalwart enables you to maintain your chic, minimalist personal style with ease. Whether you stick to plain sartorial staples like black midi dresses and classic white t-shirts, or you want to inject print and color into your maternity wardrobe, there’s guaranteed to be a piece (or three) that you adore – and a shopping spree won’t break the bank.
2. ASOS Maternity
ASOS’ maternity range is incredibly expansive; they have one of the widest selections of trend-led yet affordable maternity pieces on the market. In fact, a quick search for maternity clothes on the ASOS site throws up over 2,500 results – so you’re sure to find pieces that will fill the gaps in your existing wardrobe. ASOS super-fan pre-baby? You’ll love it even more now.
3- Sezane Maternity
Sezane’s commitment to sustainability is clear, making it one of the best maternity brands on our radar. All leather goods are vegetable-tanned – a more environmentally friendly process than traditional methods that use heavy metals – and they are FSC certified. On top of that, their designs have a vintage vibe that makes them timeless and suitable for every pregnancy you might luckily have in the future. The antithesis of throwaway fast fashion – and every reason to shop their maternity collection.
4- River Island Maternity Clothes
Available on both ASOS and River Island’s own-brand site, River Island maternity clothes are trend-led and stylish. Think the cool, influencer-adored pieces they’re already known and loved for, just with extra room for your growing bump.
5- Seraphine Maternity Clothes
One of the biggest maternity brands around for good reason, think of Seraphine as your one-stop shop for all the maternity clothes you could ever dream of owning. Loved by Kate Middleton when she was pregnant with Prince George, they have been dressing mums-to-be for over two decades, so they know a thing or two about pregnancy sartorial staples that make you feel your very best.
6- Wednesday’s Girl Maternity
We ~cannot~ with how pretty Wednesday’s Girl maternity summer dresses are. They look endlessly more expensive than they actually are and are super easy to throw on and go when the weather is as warm as it has been lately. Plus, you could easily get away with wearing them postpartum.
7- Topshop Maternity Clothes
All hail Topshop, the brand we’ve absolutely not fallen out of love with since its (very) sad demise on the British high street. After finding a new home on ASOS, they’ve elevated their bump-friendly ‘fits tenfold, with many of the styles from their main line available with extra room for your little one. Look like the freshest mama-to-be in their comfy maternity nightwear, oversized shirts, print-adorned midi dresses, and comfy cotton underwear. Your maternity line-up never looked so good.
8- Nobody’s Child Maternity Clothes
Available to shop on ASOS and their own-brand website, Nobody’s Child maternity dresses are so, SO pretty. While their edit of bump-friendly frocks is fairly limited, each style is adorned with the brand’s signature floral prints and cut in a relaxed and comfortable silhouette that moves with your body. They make great maternity wedding guest dresses if you’re after something to wear to your friend’s summer nuptials.
9- Nike Maternity
Nike first launched their maternity range back in 2020, after speaking to 30 female athletes who were both pregnant and not pregnant – and scanning over 150,000 scans of expectant mother’s bodies. Their dropped a four-piece collection designed for women throughout all stages of pregnancy, including a sports bra, high-waisted gym leggings, hoodie and tank top. Since then, they’ve expanded their maternity offering tenfold, and you’ll find a range of performance-led styles to work out (and lounge) in during every trimester. So. Good.
10- Adidas Maternity
In a similar vein, the Adidas Maternity range is of high quality, designed to flex with your changing body through every stage of pregnancy. While Nike is our go-to for performance cuts, sweat-wicking fabrics and styles for the ever-active mama, Adidas nails sports-luxe loungewear that can also be worn for low-impact exercise. From supportive yoga pants to tracksuit bottoms and hoodies which use drawstrings to highlight your beautiful bump, Adidas champions your team of two.
