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 filled with equally adorable plus size maternity clothing! 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 the 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. Your plus size maternity clothing options don’t have to be bleak! If you need more support, make sure you check out PlusSizeBirth.com! Peace and love to all of you on your beautiful journey!
What a breath of fresh fat hippy air. This line is the stuff my little fat pregnant dreams are made of. Pink Blush’s Maternity section has grown a lot over the last few years! There are enough cute pieces to make you think dressing you and your little baby bump won’t be a nightmare. The prices are reasonable too!!! Sizes up to 3X, prices around $40
I’m super impressed with Good American’s jean selection for maternity. They have jeans that are great for your first and second trimester AND denim that works when you’re in the home stretch. These beautifully made jeans will set you back a bit at $150, but they’re a great investment especially if you’re planning on having a few more *wink wink*
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 plus size 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.
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.
Every fat babe’s favorite cotton leggings now come in a maternity version! Torrid doesn’t have many maternity options – but I LIVE in torrid leggings and I feel like I would be really letting everyone down if I didn’t tell you that they come in maternity sizing. Torrid also carries a couple maternity bra options. Hopefully they’ll expand this selection in the future!
You can always count on Amazon to bring you an adorable sun dress made for a maternal angel! Tons of the options on Amazon are specifically for maternity, but the dress on the far right below is from their Daily Ritual line which goes to 7x. Not specifically for plus size maternity but great if you’re just looking to size up and wear some basics! There’s also a seller on Amazon called Savi Mom that has great birthing gowns for new parents!
Oh Mama! from Walmart
This line is cute times 10! And because it’s from Walmart, you can count on it being affordable too! The Oh Mama! line goes up to 3x and has SO many plus size maternity options!
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. Modibodi was 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 26 (5x), prices start around $30.
