Here’s the thing about maternity clothes: They are a necessity but only for a very short window. Because of this, who wants to spend a large quantity of money on them? For basics, and even dress up options, hit up these retailers that sell cute and affordable maternity clothes. You could live off these options during your entire pregnancy, or shop these affordable stores to supplement more expensive pieces you’ve got on regular rotation.
Many are familiar brands you’ve probably shopped at for years. Others are new finds that definitely belong on your maternity clothing search list. All have made it their business to provide pregnant women affordable, comfortable basics they can move and stretch in for the duration of their babe’s incubation without wanting to tear them off. No easy feat.
Better yet? All of these retailers offer super amazing sales so you can get even more cute looks without spending a small fortune. That means more money to outfit the nursery and your new baby, because, let’s be honest, buying adorable baby clothes is a lot more fun than buying pricey nursing bras, postpartum underwear, or paying for pants with a pregnancy pouch.
