Pregnancy is an exciting journey, but there’s no doubt that your body will be going through some major changes. While the physical phenomenon of the woman’s body adapting to pregnancy is nothing short of extraordinary, a lot of the time these major changes are uncomfortable, annoying and sometimes even downright painful. So, how do we combat these physical changes and still feel relaxed in our skin? The trick is in finding the right maternity clothes to fit and flatter your pregnancy belly.
Who says you can’t rock a pregnancy and both feel and look great doing it? Our stylists here at Glama Mama know exactly what mothers need in this time of perpetual change - there are just some things that only pregnant women understand, and comfortable fashion is one of them. Without further ado, here are five holy grail items every pregnant woman needs in her closet.
Maxi dresses aren’t just for the beach. You can dress up your bump without feeling restricted by rocking a flowy maxi dress anytime, anywhere! As a pregnant woman, the last thing you want to feel is constricted, and maxi dresses give you the freedom to move as well as complement your curves. They’re also great for hot summer days thanks to the lightweight fabric and airy, flowy skirt.
Maxi dresses are also a great option for mothers looking for nursing dresses. With a flexible style, maxi dresses provide stress-free breastfeeding access so you won’t ever have to worry about being confined.
Mom jeans are so comfortable that even non-moms wear them! A tried and true fashion trend, mom jeans will simply never go out of style when it comes to being comfortable and fashionable at the same time. Glama Mama’s jeans collection is form-fitting, flattering and doesn’t restrict movement. The collection is made with mothers in mind, featuring a special elastic waistband to suit every mom’s growing belly.
Being pregnant can pretty much pass as the hardest sport there is! Sportswear leggings offer great support for you, and with a flexible and stretchy waistband, you will be able to move, be active, and still look great.
If you’re ever worried about outgrowing your favourite lingerie, no need to fret. Upgrading to stretchier maternity underwear sets will give you the comfort you need while your belly, hips and other body parts expand. Plus, pregnancy underwear also comes in lots of different styles. From risqué thongs to full coverage panties, there are plenty of options you probably didn’t know about.
Maternity jackets and knitwear can be both cosy and stylish. Ideal for either work or relaxing at home, you’ll be thankful for the stretchy knitted fabric as the trimesters pass. Plus, they get even more comfortable with wear, and are great for cosying up in winter.
Ultimately, comfort should be the top of your priority list when it comes to buying the best maternity clothes. As your body changes, you need to accommodate your body’s new needs, but this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on expressing your personality through your style. With Glama Mama, you can choose from a range of maternity clothes that offer excellent styles, maximum comfort, and affordability. Start shopping today!

Our sizes correspond to your pre-pregnancy size and because our stylish maternity clothes are produced from stretchy fabrics, they will grow with you from the beginning of your pregnancy until after your baby is born.However, please note that European sizing is slightly different from the Australian sizing. We recommend you measure the largest circumference of your bust when ordering tops and dresses and the widest part of your hips (just below the belly) for pants and skirts.
If you are between sizes or expecting twins please go up a size.
