1. This is a great round up! I find I can buy styles these days that work for pregnancy and post. So I keep a lot of my dresses and tanks in the closet. I love some good tops and jeansthough.

    I think Maternity clothes have come a long ways. These are cute and practical the sale prices on some of these are amazing! Great post. ❤️

  3. Yes, I absolutely agree with your selection of “must haves.” I was lucky enough to find pieces that I could wear during and after pregnancy too, such as a wrap around sweater (I can just wrap it around a little more when not pregnant) and a lovely dress I wore to a wedding, that was cut in such a way as it didn’t “look” like a maternity dress. I didn’t follow a capsule-specific plan when I was pregnant, but I did only spend money on very specific pieces like mentioned above (either new or gently used from a consignment store). To fill out my maternity wardrobe I got hand me downs from family members or friends, for things that were too worn for them to consign but still in wearable condition for around the house. Especially with my second pregnancy, I needed a good amount of around the home clothes because I had a toddler who got me pretty messy (she was at the stage of using mommy’s clothes as napkins and tissues).

  4. This is wonderful. That was definitely one of the most frustrating things while pregnant.especially the first time, I didn’t know where to start when it came to what I’d need for my changing body.

  5. I think your list is excellent. It’s been 28 years since I was pregnant and 35 years since my first pregnancy, but I can tell you that you pregnant women today have such a greater choice. OMG. Maternity clothing was just hideous when I was pregnant–but the good thing about that was I had to be creative.

    I lived in leggings throughout all my pregnancies due to the stretch. I also wore many of my husband’s button-down collar shirts–especially the ones he wore for work. The oversized white shirts looked very crisp with the black leggings.

    In addition, I lived in ballet flats. I think it is a good idea for pregnant women to invest in a very good pair of flats. Might I suggest Repetto’s? The brand is made in France and the leather and workmanship is excellent.

    One other thing I would like to suggest–it isnt clothing but it is such an important suggestion and my doctor was the one who suggested this. Buy a rubber mattress cover for your bed. If your water breaks when you are in bed, the mattress will be destroyed. I listened to him, made the purchase and my water broke with my first child when I was in bed!! And boy–did it break!!!! That rubber mattress cover was the greatest item we could have bought.
