Top 10 Spring Style Picks for Plus-Size Pregnant Women
From floral, flirty skirts to figure-flattering tops and tunics, we’re bringing you the most fashionable finds for a chic spring pregnancy.
Even though it’s not a traditional maternity dress, hip-hugging bodycon dresses show off your best asset (your bump!) in a feminine, fabulous way. You’ll want one for the office (pair it with a blazer and flats or kitten heels) or for a spring party (just add chunky wedges!). There are no fastenings or zippers, so you’ll never feel pinched or squeezed. $50, SimplyBe.com
We love a good tunic because the fit is flattering and flirty — even on the days you’re not feeling either one. It cinches at the waist, which helps to create shape, and is loose enough to fit your growing belly. And don’t mind the gray, either, because soft pastels are going to be huge this season! Add leggings or maternity jeans and finish the look with booties or comfy flats. $40, PlushMaternityClothes.com
Stunning Maxi Skirts
Though it’s not your typical maternity pick, you can still style it for maternity-friendly wear: let the skirt sit lower on your belly (paired with a longer tank) and a chambray top, or wear it higher on your bump and add a comfortable wedge sandal to your outfit. $37, OldNavy.com
This lace-slub tee combo gives you full coverage where you want it (finally no more tugging on too low necklines or too short hems), while still feeling sweet and ladylike. The lace is perfect for the changing seasons and while we love it in pink, you can rock the style in cream too. $35, JCPenney.com
It’s not spring without a chic chambray shirt! This shirt will stretch as baby grows and even comes with a slit up the back (which means no stressing out that it could be too tight on your butt!). For work, pair it with a floral skirt and a blazer; on weekends, just wear it over a maxi dress — and leave it unbuttoned. $45, DestinationMaternity.com
You’ll need a go-to dress for everyday occasions, and this cowl-neck top draws the eye up (and off your belly), while the stripes flatter your figure. The fit hits just at the knee, which makes it work appropriate (with or without leggings!) and totally feminine. Add tons of playful, colorful jewelry to really make a statement. $40, JCPenney.com
Feeling like you’ve got to sacrifice your go-to bottoms because you’re expecting? Then here’s some news you’ll love: you don’t need to. These maternity, plus-sized boyfriend jeans (that have a relaxed fit from hip-to-ankle) come with a secret fit belly panel so you can wear ‘em from day one to month nine, without feeling like you’ve got to jump up and down to get into them. $60, Kohls.com
Okay, this isn’t exactly a made-for-maternity top, but you can still wear it comfortably during (and after!) pregnancy. Since it’s cool in early spring, you’ll want something to wrap around your shoulders to keep warm. Just wear it unzipped after month four, when you’ll probably start to show. $55, ModCloth.com
There aren’t enough words to describe how much we love this maternity tube skirt. Made from cotton and spandex, the fit will hug you in all the right places and show off your fabulous bump. Pair it with a striped —or solid — top tucked in (to flaunt your baby bump) or a loose top for a more conservative look. $30, SimplyBe.com
Hot Mama Maxis
Need a few extra reasons to love this maxi dress? We’ve got ‘em: the drawstring sides cinch at your natural waist and the contrasting colors and stripes help elongate your frame — leaving you looking and feeling fabulous! A raised scoop neck is playful but still provides plenty of coverage (which means no unwanted peep shows). Wear it after pregnancy too, with a cardigan and some bejeweled flats. $45, MotherhoodMaternity.com
