Favorite Non-Maternity Pregnancy Clothes


Ever since my bump started growing, I’ve been a little stubborn about maternity clothes. The idea of buying something that I can only wear for a few months literally makes me cringe! While my solution of hunting down non-maternity clothes that technically work for pregnancy hasn’t been perfect (maternity shorts will definitely be happening sooner than later, for example), when it comes to tops and dresses, I feel like I’m lucking out by being pregnant during the summer, and in a year when flowy looks are in style! I rounded up a few of my favorite non-maternity pregnancy clothes for today’s post, some of which I’ve already purchased and have been living in (marked with a * below), and some that I just have my eye on. Best of all, I feel great in them now and am excited to continue wearing them long after baby boy arrives!

favorite non maternity pregnancy clothesRow 1: cross back shift dress (comes in five colors), high-low maxi dress (comes in 17 colors!), sleeveless henley dress; row 2: striped high neck dress* (comes in 10 colors), chambray shirtdress*, racerback shift dress* (comes in six colors); row 3: off-the-shoulder dress (comes in two colors), t-shirt dress (comes in two colors), floral swing dress; row 4: printed swing dress, racerback tank dress* (comes in two colors), flowy v-neck tank (comes in four colors)

As you can see, tons of these things comes in a BUNCH of colors…given how few things I feel really comfortable in at the moment, I am a big fan of ordering a dress that works in multiple colors ;)

P.S. I’m way behind on outfit posts, but am hoping to show y’all how I style a few of these pieces very soon, so stay tuned!






  1. Flowy dresses and tops are the BEST! :) I bet you look gorgeous and extra cute with your little bump in them! xoxo!

      You’re so sweet! These dresses definitely help with how cute I feel on any given day, haha! :)

    I love that maxi dress and that chambray dress! Actually all great ideas. :) I will admit that I have busted out the maternity jeans already for comfort’s sake. Dresses and shorts will be must in a few weeks though.

    • Lisa says:

      The chambray dress is a must! I have to literally stop myself from wearing it more than once a week, and I’m confident it’ll still work well into trimester #3!

    I want some of these dresses!

  4. […] It In Every Color” :) Ever since I ordered this striped swing dress (right before publishing this post), I’ve been wearing it at least once a week. It hits all of my current must-haves: […]
