Rihanna is reminding people everywhere that pregnancy doesn’t have to change your sense of self—and she’s doing it through her maternity wardrobe. In early February, the singer announced she’s currently expecting her first child with partner A$AP Rocky. Since then, she’s pushed boundaries to maintain her sense of style despite her changing body. In doing so, the icon has touched on the important topic of having autonomy over one’s pregnant body. It can be all too easy for pregnant women to feel like a vessel for baby—and society has quietly placed limits on what is and isn’t acceptable for a pregnant woman to wear.

Rihanna’s hoping to break that mold and redefine what it means to be “decent” during pregnancy. “My body is doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that,” she told Vogue in a recent interview. “This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy?”

Case in point, the entrepreneur has shown off her changing body and growing bump in many iconic outfits over the past couple of months. Below, we rounded up some of the ones we just can’t get enough of.
