Wondering what to wear while pregnant? When it comes to styling the bump, I prefer to wear non-maternity dresses that I can wear during and after pregnancy. I’m all about investing in pieces I can wear over and over again, and I didn’t want to splurge on something that I’d only wear for a few months.
A quick note – Maternity activewear is a must. Your pre-pregnancy leggings will only stretch so far, and you’ll want to be as comfortable as can be when you’re working out or lounging at home.
Here are the best bump-friendly non-maternity outfits for pregnancy, a maternity photoshoot, a wedding, or your baby shower.
Where to Shop: Cute Bump-Friendly Non-Maternity Dresses
Non-maternity Dresses You Can Totally Wear While Pregnant
Smocked dresses are the way to go if you want to show off your bump. PinkBlush has really cute bump-friendly dresses. This floral midi dress is perfect for Spring or Summer and features a smocked elastic body. Since this style is stretchy, there’s plenty of room for your growing belly. I usually wear a size Small but sized up to a Medium.
Flowy Non-Maternity Dresses for Pregnancy
You can’t go wrong with a flowy boho maxi dress. Most Salty Crush dresses have an elastic waistband that stretches to accommodate your growing bump. I also love all the bright and fun prints. The fabric is 100% rayon, so it’s lightweight and easy to wear on hot days.
For an effortless look, add a sweater dress to your maternity wardrobe. They’re comfortable, stretchy and versatile. Style it with flats, and a cute hat during Spring or boots, and a jacket during the colder months.

How to Look chic during pregnancy
The best clothes to wear during pregnancy are comfortable, stretchy and affordable. When shopping for dresses or outfits, look for stretchy fabric with room for growth. If you want to show off your bump, a smocked dress, wrap dress, sweater dress or A-line dress is a good option. I love flowy maxi, midi and mini dresses too. When you don’t feel like wearing a dress, you can’t go wrong with comfy loungewear.
