All hail Topshop, the brand we’ve absolutely not fallen out of love with since it’s (very) sad demise on the British high street. After finding a new home on ASOS, they’ve elevated their bump-friendly ‘fits tenfold, with many of the styles from their main line available with extra room for your little one. Look like the freshest mama-to-be in their comfy maternity nightwear, oversized shirts, print-adorned midi dresses and comfy cotton underwear. Your maternity line-up never looked so good.

Available to shop on ASOS and their own-brand website, Nobody’s Child maternity dresses are so, SO pretty. While their edit of bump-friendly frocks is fairly limited, each style is adorned in the brand’s signature floral prints and cut in a relaxed and comfortable silhouette that moves with your body. Quality over quantity springs to mind. They make great maternity wedding guest dresses, if you’re after something to wear to your friend’s summer nuptials.

7. Seraphine Maternity Clothes

One of the biggest maternity brands around for good reason, think of Seraphine as your one-stop shop for all the maternity clothes you could ever dream of owning. Loved by Kate Middleton when she was pregnant with Prince George, they have been dressing mums-to-be for over two decades, so they know a thing or two about pregnancy sartorial staples that make you feel your very best. 

Of course, Seraphine maternity clothes are a tad more expensive than styles from Topshop, River Island and the like. But durability is at the brand’s heart, and every piece is made to last. If you have a little more money to spend, these maternity clothes will see you through the weeks post-pregnancy (invisible zips in selected styles allow you to breastfed your little one when they arrive), potential pregnancies of the future – and you’ll be able to pass them over to friends.

New Look maternity wear have got you covered when it comes to pregnancy clothes that are just as fashionable as the pieces in your main collection. Their summer dresses are a force to be reckoned with – case in point: this square-neck midi dress which looks just like something from Faithfull The Brand’s hugely more-expensive designer offering.

While it was their maternity loungewear offering that originally caught our attention, Flounce Maternity’s selection of chic satin bridesmaid dresses and wedding guest dresses are what pushed us head-over-heels in love with the brand. If you’re a mama-to-be on the hunt for a lightweight and comfortable occasion dress, you’re very much in luck.

Nike first launched their maternity range back in 2020, after speaking to 30 female athletes who were both pregnant and not pregnant – and scanning over 150,000 scans of expectant mother’s bodies. Their dropped a four-piece collection designed for women throughout all stages of pregnancy, including a sports bra, high-waisted gym leggings, hoodie and tank top. Since then, they’ve expanded their maternity offering tenfold, and you’ll find a range of performance-led styles to work out (and lounge) in during every trimester. So. Good.

In a similar vein, the Adidas Maternity range is of high-quality, designed to flex with your changing body through every stage of pregnancy. While Nike is our go-to for performance cuts, sweat-wicking fabrics and styles for the ever-active mama, Adidas nails sports-luxe loungewear that can also be worn for low-impact exercise. From supportive yoga pants to tracksuit bottoms and hoodies which use drawstrings to highlight your beautiful bump, Adidas champions your team of two.

If you’re a die-hard fan over Calvin Klein’s famously-comfy undies, you’ll be pleased to know you don’t have to abandon your obsession when pregnant. The brand stocks a range of maternity and nursing bras that look just like the styles in their main lines, with wrapover fronts for comfort and easier nursing access. As ever, everything is cut from fabrics made with recycled fibres and inclusive of Calvin Klein branding.

Accessible in price and just as trend-led as the styles in their main range, Fashion Union’s maternity line will ensure you still get to feel like you – even when you’re carrying a growing bump. You can shop influencer-endorsed short-and-shirt co-ords (that make getting dressed on holiday a breeze), maxi skirts that sit over-bump and mini wrap dresses that work just as well at a bottomless brunch as they would at a wedding. We love the elasticated waistbands which fit through each trimester – and post-pregnancy.
