Checklist: Maternity Fashion
 Jeans Forget skinny styles and grab your roomiest pair for the first couple of months.
 Blazer Button up to hide your growing bump, or wear it open to let your belly breathe.
 Tank top You can rely on that stretchy shirt from your closet until the day you pop.
 T-shirt Slide by in a larger-size shirt from your own stash for the first few months.
 Cardigan Be ready for unexpected hot flashes. A basic button-up is easy on, easy off.
 Skirt Turn to a pencil skirt for a slimming style even when you start feeling bigger.
 Little black dress A style with an Empire waist won’t restrict your growing bump.
 Husband’s t-shirt Steal one of his XL tees for some reprieve in the final stretch.
 Black pants A side-zip is easy to leave open unnoticeably.
 Maternity jeans Work a dark wash (with a stretch panel) for day into night.
 Wrap dress Adjust the dress to fit a fluctuating waistline pre- and postbaby.
 Maternity tank top Cover up unbuttoned pants with extra-long styles.
 Maternity t-shirt Show off your great new cleavage with a V-neck style.
 Maternity cardigan Get a neutral hue, like black, that you can dress up or down.
 Maternity skirt Highlight your thinnest assets (your legs!) with a short hemline.
 Big black dress Take the maternity route and your dress won’t ride up in front.
 Under-belly black pants Don’t reveal any seams with your snug tanks and tees.
 Maternity black pants Hide your belly and keep pants up with a wide panel.
