You’re only pregnant for a short amount of time, so spending a lot of money on maternity wear seems extravagant to say the least! Especially when there’s so much to buy in preparation for baby’s arrival!

Which is perhaps why there seems to be a chronic lack of choice when it comes to style.  But never fear! We’ve picked out our top maternity buys – style for every occasion, at prices that won’t break the bank! Check out our faves below…

 

Nightwear

My absolute favourite has to be the pink shorts nursing set! So soft and feminine – but super practical too!  The reviews are all fantastic – and it’s only £10!!

The navy polka heart pj set is perfect if you prefer long legs!  Super soft and comfy, with plenty of room for bump too!  The adjustable straps ensure a comfortable fit, and there are clip fastenings so you can let either cup down to feed baby!

If you prefer not to have anything around your waist, the ‘Yummy Mummy’ nightdress from ASOS is a fab option!  They have a brilliant collection of maternity nightwear, with styles to suit all tastes.

In fact, the floral pj’s are also from there.  I love the print, and they look so comfortable!  They’d be perfect for your hospital bag!

Your summer style is never complete without the right sunglasses!  I’ve found some fabulous oversized preppy sunglasses at a great price in TK Maxx!

A pair of comfy sandals is an absolute MUST! There’s an ‘up to 60% off’ sale on at Clarks right now – so head over and grab yourself a bargain! The ones pictured above are leather – and they’re reduced to just £20! The flexible footbed is teamed with Cushion Soft™ foam layers to ensure a comfortable step, and they’re super cute too!

A pair of over the bump skinny jeans is a year-round maternity staple. Comfortable, flattering, go with anything, can be dressed up or down, wash well and hard-wearing.  What’s not to love?  We’ve found a fab pair from Next – available in three colours and priced from just £14! The reviews are great too!

I love love LOVE the blush high neck asymmetric frill top! The way the frill hangs around the bump is super flattering, and the colour is lovely.

The ‘Preggosaurus’ t-shirt is perfect for adding a touch of fun to your maternity wardrobe!  ASOS actually has quite a good selection of maternity wear with funny slogans that really tickled me!  They’re 100% cotton too!

The Navy Dress is so soft and light and floaty – I love it! Pair with some sandals, and you have a lovely outfit for a lunch date!
