So you’re fat and pregnant! Congratulations! You’ve now reached the 3rd level of clothes shopping hell that is reserved for those of us who dare to ever think that maybe we could have an adorable plus size pregnancy. Achievement unlocked!
While researching places to shop for plus size maternity the overwhelming response was “just buy things bigger, and plan on feeling totally left out of the preggo-belly-cuteness”. I’m going to get real with you all for a moment here – I plan on having a baby at some point in my life. And I’m pretty aware that pregnancy probably isn’t going to be very fun for me, because I’m just that kind of person. I don’t deal well with change, I get anxious when my body does things I don’t understand, and I’m pretty fucked up about going to doctor. So the thought of not having something cute to dress up in, even if I only
wear it on my couch, is heart breaking. I have a feeling I’m not the only person feeling that way, too.
So this one is for a little glimmer of hope for current (or future) pregnant babes. If you need more support, make sure you check out PlusSizeBirth.com and their amazing Plus Size Pregnancy Course! Peace and love to all of you on your beautiful journey!
PLUS SIZE MATERNITY CLOTHING
This is a brand new addition to our list (September 2018) and I could not be more excited about it! The new Isabel Maternity line at Target is small but inclusive and packs quite the punch for a little line of maternity clothes! They have pieces that are cozy and sweet, and chic and fashionable. It’s perfect for the expecting parent! Sizes go up to 4x or 26-28 and start around $20.
I honestly felt like I had hit gold when I found out Yours Clothing had a special little “bump it up” maternity section. They have such great (and on trend) staple pieces for parents-to-be. With sizes up to 30, you have got to bookmark this store as a maternity go-to. And the prices are super reasonable too!
Kohls has a surprising amount of really fun and cute plus size maternity options. They are definitely what I would consider a “go to” destination for plus size babes carrying a little love bug. They have the earth-mother-goddess trends on point and they even carry some plus size maternity swimwear!
Macy’s offers a limited, but on trend, stock of plus size maternity clothing. Most of the styles are appropriate for daily wear and you can find so many items on sale! Because Macy’s is a big store with a big selection, it’s also worth your time to check out the standard plus size section to look for flowy empire waist tops and long length basics. Sizes go up to 3x.
What a breath of fresh fat hippy air. This line is the stuff my little fat pregnant dreams are made of. There’s not a huge selection, but there are enough cute pieces to make you think being dressing you and your little baby bump won’t be a nightmare. The prices are reasonable too!!! Sizes up to 3X, prices around $40.
Technically, this store is more focused around undergarments than it is clothing, I just love them so much I have to add them here. I’m no pregnancy expert, but from what I know things can get a bit damp in the nether regions when you’re with child. Dear Kate’s were created with the intention of being the perfect “period panty” and have this amazing stain releasing, moisture absorbent lining. You better bet your pregnant ass I’m going to have several on hand when I get knocked up! Sizes up to 3x (all styles), prices start around $30.
This is the store that I think most people know about. Carrying up to sizes 3X, with prices around $40, this shop has been a maternity staple for many parents. Because they cater to maternity they are on trend and make really comfortable pieces that just make sense.
PlusSizeBirth.com is an amazing resource for body positive pregnancy and a community of fat babes interested in all things babies! If you have any suggestions for other places please let me know in the comments!
