the best “non-maternity” maternity clothing

Okay mama’s… it’s not that I am opposed to shopping in the maternity section for this baby bump. But I find the clothing prices will break the bank and for such a short season of life… I can get much more wear out of other prettier pieces that will last me way past my bumpin’ days.

I am going to share with you my fave “non-maternity” maternity stores & clothing that fit a growing bump! Follow along on Liketoknowit as I share + link all of my favourite pieces!


… has the best and cheapest dresses ever. They are my go-to for any type of maxi/tight dress and I typically size up to accommodate the growing belly as I find their clothing on the small side (I typically wear a small and depending on material will buy a medium or large).

Urban Outfitters

… great quality & pretty pieces that will last you way past your bumpin’ days. I am still wearing dresses that I purchased when pregnant with Ava two summers ago!

Free People

…give me all things flowy and boho chic. Oh, and stretchy. These knit skirts are my fave… ever.


… prior to starting work, my second home was Winners/Marshalls/Homesense which is why I would find the cutest pieces (the joys of frequenting the store so often). If you have time and some patience, you can find super cute dresses (both tight & flowy) to dress that cute little (or big) bump!


The perfect, tie shoulder, flowy dress for less then $40!
