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 coronavirus pandemic, now that you’re stuck at home and 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 slinkiest, coziest maternity loungewear, of course!

You may not be able to venture out to your favorite stores and peruse through the racks, but you can easily (and safely) shop online for your new must-have WFH looks. From maternity sweatpants and sweatshirts to tanks, tees and jammies, here’s a roundup of our favorite maternity loungewear items that are still in stock (and in many cases, on major sale!).

Maternity Leggings

Maternity leggings are a pregnancy staple during normal times, but with the level of use they’re getting during lockdown, it goes without saying you need a couple extra pairs. Here are some of our top picks.
