The Best Maternity Loungewear to Cozy Up in at Home
When you’re pregnant, pretty much the only clothes you want to wear are pieces that are ultra-comfortable. After all, your body is constantly changing, your skin is super-sensitive and you’ve got a million things on your mind other than figuring out your outfit of the day. This truth has merely tripled during the new work-from-home era, now that you have little reason to change out of your pajamas. But let’s be honest: There are only so many days in a row you can wear the same pair of leggings. So what’s an expectant mom to do? Stock up on the coziest maternity loungewear, of course! Don’t get it twisted—this fashion trend is not to be confused with sleepwear or workout gear. Maternity loungewear is casual attire that’s super-comfy but can still be worn out and about (with the right accessories).
Don’t fancy perusing the racks at your local mall? You’re in luck! Online stores offer tons of must-have looks for pregnant mamas. From belly-accommodating sweatpants and yummy sweatshirts to tanks, tees and more, here’s a roundup of our favorite maternity loungewear to rock all three trimesters and beyond.
Athleisure apparel has come a long way since the days of frumpy sweatsuits, and many brands now offer trendy yet comfortable clothing. Here, find three of our favorite places to buy comfy clothes for pregnancy.
Kindred Bravely: Kindred Bravely has a whole section devoted to maternity loungewear—and it doesn’t disappoint. Mix and match elevated pieces like the brand’s slouchy knits and super-soft jumpsuits with everyday joggers and supportive tank tops.
Missguided: Don’t want to spend a ton of money on pregnancy loungewear? We hear you. Missguided is a UK-based brand that offers trendy clothing at knock-down prices. From cool coordinated sets (we’re obsessed with the bright coral biker shorts duo) to retro-style joggers and maternity sweatshirts, this online store has tons of options to choose from.
There’s a time and a place for maternity jeans, but sometimes you want to feel extra-coy in more forgiving maternity sweatpants. Below, some of our favorite pairs to choose from.
Angel Maternity Tapered Maternity Lounge Pants
These jogger-legging hybrids have a streamlined shape that manages to be both 100 percent comfy and 100 percent stylish. The extra-wide waistband sits over your bump, but you can also fold it down to wear under your belly if you prefer less pressure in the postpartum stage. Maternity sweatpants you can lounge in well after baby arrives? Yes, please.
